Programming Note: February Hiatus + Whole30 Wrap-Up

Yeah, I’m going to take the rest of February off in an attempt to unplug for a bit. But before I do, I’ll leave you with one more rant to entertain you (see here). Never fear, I’ve got some fun stuff in the pipeline for March, but sometimes I like to pretend I have a […]

Your Whole30 Survival Guide

There’s no doubt a Whole30 takes preparation. When mine began on October 2, I was out of town and had attended a wedding the night before. We got home, the fridge wasn’t stocked, and I hadn’t given much thought to the whole thing. The first few days weren’t very inspiring, but you gotta roll with […]

My Whole30 Results

Sooo…I meant to take before and after photos. And I didn’t. Partly because I’m not very photogenic right now (I average 2 1/2 showers a week and have about 15 minutes to get ready before getting my daughter out the door), and partly because I wasn’t in this for any weight loss or image enhancement. […]

Whole30: Lessons Learned

These last 30 days, curious folk would often ask me, “Why?” From their perspective, I was already so “restricted” in my way of eating, that it was hard to fathom what I could possibly gain by going even stricter. As I mentioned in my Oh-crap-the-Whole30-is-starting-soon post, there were four things I was thinking as I […]

Well. Here we are. The end. I’d like to thank the Academy, my family, and the makers of BioKleen dish detergent for help with all the dishes I dirtied this month. I shan’t lie. Today I felt some relief, knowing that I wouldn’t have to be as sharp and on it about everything I put […]

Programming Note

Today marks my last day on the Whole30. Moment of silence please. So this week will be all about processing that experience. I’ll have some wrap-up posts about my thoughts on what it means to me, what I’m planning to do going forward, and helpful tips to survive one of your own. I’m also challenging […]

Wow, hard to believe there’s only one more day left. In some ways, I’m fantasizing about what I’ve been missing: bacon, wine, honey in my tea, cheese. But in other ways, it feels wrong to just dive back in where I left off. I have a lot of thoughts on this (big surprise, eh?), so […]

Today was Farmers’ Market day. I got the last of the raspberries for my daughter, olive oil, onions, broccoli, salad greens, locally raised and made Italian pork sausages, bison stew meat, and bison breakfast sausage. Then I went by my friendly neighborhood co-op and stocked up on some more stuff: coconut oil, beef bones, almond […]

Another boring restaurant experience. I ordered the guacamole burger (local, grass-fed, organic), no bun no cheese. Side salad, which ended up naked after I removed the cheese and candied walnuts. So my lunch consisted of a patty with guacamole on it and a bunch of lettuce with olive oil and balsamic vinegar poured on it. […]

Wow, what a weird night. I just got back from rescuing some friends who came back from a remote hike to discover their car had been locked behind a gate and they couldn’t get out. Before I drove 40 minutes to pick them up (luckily a sheriff dropped them off for me at a more […]
