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.
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.

Wait, Wait…I’ve managed to go on living without bread?

All of my energy this week has been spent on keeping… Continue reading Whole30, Days 15-19. I am SO over it.

Of course, every food I love was there: chocolate covered caramels, pita bread and hummus, red wine…U.G.H. But I held steady and had some water. At this point when I think about… Continue reading Whole30, Days 12-14. Dare Me Chocolate, Dare Me.
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.
