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???? This is literally…… Continue reading Whole30, day 24. Wait, Wait…I’ve managed to go on living without bread?

Whole30, Days 22-23. What the hell was I complaining about?

Seriously, I feel like I wander back and forth between kill me! and oh this is easy.  I’m not sure if that is due to the food I’m making or what, but I’m perturbed at myself at this point. Anyway after looking over the Whole30 Reintroduction Plan I was left feeling a little, well, disappointed I guess.  I…… Continue reading Whole30, Days 22-23. What the hell was I complaining about?

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 15-19. I am SO over it.

Can I be honest with you guys?  I am sooo over this!  All I have had for the last week are dreams about McDonald’s, Imo’s pizza, chocolate, cupcakes…and then I wake up in a panic because I am so mad at myself for cheating! All of my energy this week has been spent on keeping…… Continue reading Whole30, Days 15-19. I am SO over it.

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. 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.
