Round 1 Wrap-Up

Okay!  So Round 1 (the second time) is under my belt.  I’ll admit, my Whole30 was not perfect.  I snuck in a couple of cheat foods, and a couple of cheat meals.  I think hormones really threw me for a loop this time, because I was craving salty things, sweet things, etc.  So, it was […]

Day 24 – Willpower

I had an interesting conversation with a friend today who was in the office.  I mentioned that I was on Day 24 of my Whole30 and feeling fantastic. “I wish I could do that,” she said. Now, mind you, she has a copy of my Whole30 book.  I’ve offered to meal plan for her and draw up […]

Day 23

I AM FEELING SO SKINNY lol.  You wouldn’t look at me and think “she’s lost weight,” but I know my body better than everybody, and I’m noticing little things.  Pants a little looser.  Squeezing through spaces a little better.  Sitting in my chair at work a little more comfortably.  Things like that.  I also feel […]

Day 21

I was going to do a whole post while on my lunch break, and then my checking account took forever to balance, and, ya know.  Adulthood.  LOL.  So the good news is that my checking account, eventually, did balance (forgot to add in those Amazon purchases!).  The bad news is that I didn’t get to […]

Day 19

It’s interesting – the connection, for me, between food and health manifests itself in different ways.  Sometimes I occasionally have negative reactions to food, and I’m not sure what triggers it (that’s when having a food journal would help, I’m sure, but I am relatively lazy). I had ribs last night for dinner, and they […]

Day 16

Couple of things – I cheated.  Once.  I gave a presentation for the local trails group I’m a part of, on “The Parks, Trails, and Paths of Ireland,” following two trips there over the last two years.  We seem to get more attendance at these things when we offer food, so I made scones and, […]

Day 14

I started this post on Day 11 and am now on Day 14 and just getting around to finishing it, but the sentiments remain the same.  I am just cruuuuuuisin along!  I seem to be in a much better place than I was a year ago, which is obviously good.  The furthest I’ve gone off-track […]

Day 7

Things are continuing to go well!  I prepped a week’s worth of roasted potatoes for breakfast this morning, and seasoned them with Nom Nom Paleo’s Magic Mushroom Powder.  OMG.  I see what Michelle means now when she says she uses it in place of salt in everything savory that she makes.  Potatoes were GREAT! I […]

Day 5

Just a wee check-in!  Day 5 here and everything is going well.  It’s so easy for me to slide back into Whole30-ing. Something I’ve eaten has not settled well in my stomach – I think it might have been a Creamy Onion Dressing recipe that I tried.  Wasn’t tasty, made me poop.  I don’t think […]
