I’m glad it’s Day 2 again.

Yes, it is possible to start over.  I guess since we were going long term on eating paleo-ish, it really isn’t bothering me.  I am thinking about other kinds of foods, but as long as I don’t go buy them, I’m going to be fine.  The difference between want and need is self-control. I had… Continue reading I’m glad it’s Day 2 again.

Whole30 Day 1. Again. Grrr.

So, I have just returned from 5 days in the midwest where I attended a funeral for a close family friend.  On the drive out, we brought fruit and nuts, water, and we had a salad with grilled chicken. Our plan was to try to be as compliant as we could be on Whole30, but… Continue reading Whole30 Day 1. Again. Grrr.

THE HARDEST DAY!! Day 10, Whole 30

The 10th day of the Whole30 is known as the hardest day.  It’s the day when most people quit.  People are having cravings, and they also are getting tired of cooking.  I’m not quitting.  Not me, no way. I’ve made it this far, and I’m going to finish strong! It was really difficult to figure… Continue reading THE HARDEST DAY!! Day 10, Whole 30

Whole30, Day 8

Tonight is going to be a big challenge.  I’m going to a wedding.  There’s going to be cake and other deliciousness there.  I’m heading off the cravings by eating before I go.  Eating, exercise and a few other things are definitely mind games.  You have to prepare before you do them and then stick with the… Continue reading Whole30, Day 8

Whole 30, Day 6

Today was crazy.  First of all, my daughter went back to college, and I’ve been up since 4 (when she went to the airport.)  It was also the day I had to report back to school.  I have a pretty long morning and knew it was going to be rough mid-morning.  On the Whole30, you’re not… Continue reading Whole 30, Day 6

Whole 30, Day 5

I am kicking this thing!  Good black coffee has once again found it’s way to a place of satisfaction in my life.  It’s not that I used  sweeteners like french vanilla or Girl Scout Thin Mint. The richness of a splash of half ‘n half just makes me feel all cozy inside. I thought I’d share a few… Continue reading Whole 30, Day 5
