FINALLY
Thursday, May 25, 2017      5 comments

Why is it so easy to know what you know, but at times, hard to remember and put into practice? The last 2 or 3 weeks I've been the same weight. It was making me NUTS. I felt like I was never going to drop. I started weighing myself more ... Read more

Having a healthy life is SO much easier when you have someone outside of spark. I love spark people. It has helped me immeasurably. I have finally learned though, that being able to complain to my friends makes this easier and knowi... Read more

Interesting.

Well, I obviously finished Whole 30. It was actually easy, in the sense that it is simple and just requires planning. So I incorporated dairy without issue. Except I don't eat it that much. If I want cheese on a burger, I'll have it,... Read more
Mother's day and exhaustion
Monday, May 15, 2017      3 comments

My husband made my day. We had a wonderful mother's day, enjoyed time with families, and had plenty of our own time. I got my workouts in, and went for some walks at each parent's home to make my step goal (WOOT). It is comical. I get fr... Read more

For those of you who knew about and were praying for my mom, thank you. ALL tests came back normal. They didn't know what was on the previous MRI, but she is healthy! Thank you!... Read more
Great News and still going strong
Monday, May 08, 2017      1 comments

Well, with a little help, I'm easing back into healthy eating without Whole 30. They recommend that you eat one serving of each thing restricted at a time per day. For example, Saturday, I had one serving of cheese, yesterday I had another ser... Read more
Limbo... not knowing... crazy...
Thursday, May 04, 2017      7 comments

When I feel out of control, or that something crazy is happening, in the past, I have binged. I'm sure that it is my body/mind way of lashing out and controlling things in a weird way. I'm looking for healthier ways to deal. My mom had so... Read more
Whole 30 day...???
Wednesday, May 03, 2017      2 comments

Well, I actually haven't gone off Whole 30 yet. It is comical, I'm just used to eating this way, and truly, I don't MISS anything! I remember thinking I'd be jumping to add some things back into my diet, but honestly, right now, I don't want to... Read more
Whole 30 And CUT
Monday, May 01, 2017      3 comments

That did it. 30 days. How do I feel? Like it was easy, and now I'm overwhelmed with how to incorporate those foods back into my day. So, here is my thought. Grains, I don't miss them AT ALL and so many processed grains have suga... Read more
Almost done...
Wednesday, April 26, 2017      1 comments

I'm close enough to the end of Whole 30 where I feel I can really sum up how it went. Now the scale and etc will be a different story, we aren't supposed to weigh ourselves, and I don't want to get discouraged this close to the end, and honestl... Read more
5 days to go?
Tuesday, April 25, 2017      2 comments

It is April 25th, I've been doing Whole 30 for 25 days. And I feel GREAT. I don't miss anything that I'm not supposed to have. NOTHING. I mean I do love cheese, and I miss having the convenience of certain things, but I discovered I really c... Read more
Whole 30 - 9 days to go, where has the time gone?
Friday, April 21, 2017      1 comments

I'm kind of stunned. 9 days left of this radically different way of eating. It has flown by. Am I getting results? How do I feel? What is going on? Well, yes, good, everything. First question, am I getting results? YES. NO,... Read more
Whole 30 - Day 17
Monday, April 17, 2017      5 comments

Wow. I was doing whole 30 at Easter. Doesn't seem like a big deal? Well, add into that in-laws that apparently could give two hoots about their own health, let alone yours and your "diet". THERE WAS NO FOOD FOR ME TO EAT. I did bri... Read more
Whole 30 Day 5 Detox done?
Wednesday, April 05, 2017      1 comments

Wow. Food makes such a difference. I have noticed more energy, however, I was eating VERY VERY VERY poorly, so I'm not surprised. I'm not necessarily attributing it to anything other than NOT eating crap. It isn't necessarily Whole 30 gi... Read more
