Apathy and Feeling Nothing at All.

Friday, November 06, 2015      3 comments

Today marks the 11th year I have successfully failed to attend the New Jersey Education Association Teacher's Convention in Atlantic City. It's not something I'm proud of and I always think about going, but always find myself surrounded by ungra... Read more

A Selfish Entry

Friday, October 23, 2015      4 comments

I really try to only let these blogs serve as self-reflection - primarily to evaluate my current relationship with food, but lately that's been so strongly under control that I'm reaching these weird emotional precipices that I am uneqipped to h... Read more

Take a Knee

Tuesday, October 13, 2015      6 comments

And that's what I'm doing, taking a knee. It's been go-go-go all day and I am finally sitting down for the first time (aside from driving) since I woke up at 5am. The husband is sick - and an absolute wuss - so he's shut himself in the second be... Read more

Long time no blog & emotional eating

Wednesday, September 23, 2015      5 comments

It feels like I haven't blogged in quite some time - while it's only really been about 20 days - and that life has suddenly switched to a sprint-like pace with a marathon distance. And I am not here to complain about that. I recognize that ... Read more

The Whole30 Results

Wednesday, September 02, 2015      4 comments

Today was day 31, which I continued on the straight and narrow Whole30 until dinner when I had my first glass of wine in a very long time. Turns out... Read more

A Day of Firsts and One Last.

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      5 comments

Today is the final day of Whole30. It is also the first day I have ever used a FitBit as well as the first day of school. Who knew September 1st would be such a big deal? The first day of school was what it always is: a lot of sitting and l... Read more

Approaching the Finish Line

Monday, August 31, 2015      4 comments

Today is the last day of August and with it, day 29 out of 30 on The Whole30 Program as well as the last day before a new school year. To honor our beautiful summer and say good bye to the slightly freer opportunities allowed to us, we indulged ... Read more

Good Morning, Whole30 Day24

Wednesday, August 26, 2015      4 comments

I said I would stop blogging in the morning. Forget it. I have less than a week before the daily grind, a lot on my mind, and a much clearer head at 9am. Where to start... I'm going to start with returning to the daily grind. I'm a hig... Read more

Whole30: The Interlude & Carly-gazing

Monday, August 24, 2015      2 comments

Here we are - Day 22. I had the chance to return to "normalcy" with a great swim this morning and my home-cooked meals, the last of which is baking in the oven right now. The cravings of this past weekend have subsided as well as the headac... Read more

Whole30 Days 18 - 21 & Another Stay-cation

Sunday, August 23, 2015      1 comments

I've just rounded out day 21 of the Whole30, which seems surreal because I'm not quite sure where those 21 days went. The program has treated me well and I've followed it to the tee thus far. In fact, the beginning of this week was tiger blood f... Read more

Whole30 Day17: Fun with Food

Wednesday, August 19, 2015      4 comments

Today I felt a momentary tiger blood energy surge. Really from when I woke up to about 3pm; it has been yawns-ville since. Admittedly, I almost reached for an afternoon cup of coffee, but that's when I realized I could always just go to sleep ea... Read more

It's a Double Blog Day.

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      1 comments

I'm double blogging today. I love the feeling of sitting down to a cup of black coffee and blogging with the radio on in the background, but the reality is that it's not making my work morning's productive and it's not a habit I can carry i... Read more

Whole30 Day16: Don't Fear the Fat.

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      7 comments

15 days into my Whole30 program I finally understood the impact of good fats on your diet. I have been, admittedly, shying away from the amount of fat indicated on the program's portion suggestions; I always include a fat, but often not in the q... Read more

Whole30: The beginning of Week 3, PMS, & Moderation

Monday, August 17, 2015      2 comments

I was feeling uncharacteristically bloated earlier this weekend and was questioning my fat intake on Whole30, but it turns out my time of the month came early. I'm still getting used to having it again (second time since having a baby) and wasn'... Read more

Whole30: good-bye day 11 and hello day 12!

Friday, August 14, 2015      3 comments

I've "made it through" the two days identified as the statistically most likely to quit days of Whole30. I air quote that because I didn't experience a breaking point or challenging moment where I wanted to quit. In fact, while I have been a lit... Read more
