Whole30, Days 20-21. A New Sense of Self.

No I have not reached Tiger Blood status as a burst of energy, but what I do feel is more constant energy throughout the day.  My daughter and I were at the mall over the weekend and we stopped to look at some Alex and Ani jewelry and the salesperson was commenting on how tired she was…everyday… Continue reading Whole30, Days 20-21.

Whole30, Days 12-14. Dare Me Chocolate, Dare Me.

I’m feeling pretty resilient.  I went out with my Chinese food loving friend on Saturday, and we ended up at a friends party.  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.

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.

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.

Ahhh….Day 9 At this point in the game, food is becoming a little different for… Continue reading Whole30, day 9. Delirious or Beautiful Minding It?

Whole30, day 8. I Might Survive After-all.

I’m definitely a little stupefied.  Day 8 has gone fairly well- almost like an attitude of “eh, this is how I eat now”.  I realize of course that is probably premature given I’m only 1/4 of the way home, but this day is better than days 3-7 put together for sure. I came across this… Continue reading Whole30, day 8. I Might Survive After-all.
