Whole30, Days 25-28. It was a good run. The 10 lessons learned.

I’m not going to bore you with days 25-27.  They were compliant and boring.  Nothing really to report- I cooked, I did dishes, I made my weekly trip to #wholefoods.  Here is what I really want to tell you: the ice cream wasn’t worth it. Knowing that my reintroduction was coming up this week, I… Continue reading Whole30, Days 25-28. It was a good run. The 10 lessons learned.

A Slight Derail from the Norm

I had a realization this morning, and I want to share it with you.  Perhaps you will not find it as profound as I did, but nonetheless I felt it was important to give it a voice. As I was driving to work this morning I was listening to Eat, Pray, Love for the second time on Audible.  I enjoy… Continue reading A Slight Derail from the Norm

Whole30, day 24. Wait, Wait…I’ve managed to go on living without bread?

I was in a meeting today working on finalizing some copy for an upcoming promotion and one of the bullet points was kind of long.  My co-worker reviewed it and said “it’s as long as a day without bread”.  Which got me to thinking- have I really gone 24 days without bread????

Whole 30, Day 11. mmmm…Donuts!!

No, I didn’t eat any donuts, but dang I really wanted to today.  It was like I could taste it just by thinking about it.  A wonderfully fresh cake donut with chocolate icing, warm and creamy.  UGH, sounded so good. It wasn’t really a sugar craving, but more about seeing them a couple times today so… Continue reading Whole 30, Day 11. mmmm…Donuts!!

Whole30, day 10. It’s Fine. I’m Fine. It’s All Fine.

Ok why isn’t this harder?  I feel like maybe I’m doing something wrong.  According to the Whole30 timeline, which I just now read, this should be one of the hardest days.  So hard in fact that I guess many people quit at this point. The reason for quitting seems to be that the newness of… Continue reading Whole30, day 10. It’s Fine. I’m Fine. It’s All Fine.
