Post Whole30.  Calorie Counting Be Gone!

Reminding myself this journey was not about weight loss is a struggle.  I finally stepped on the scale this morning and the official change is -5 lbs.  So yeah, a loss!  Other successes were inches lost in my waist and chest. But it still felt insignificant.  This is kind of a gross picture, but it is…… Continue reading Post Whole30.  Calorie Counting Be Gone!

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.

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 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!!
