Good morning, Sparkpeople! I have been getting on my treadmill for a mile each morning and a mile in the afternoon. My back still hurts but I can do short slow stints. Today we went into town and did 3.5 slow miles on our city trail. ... Read more

I TOTALLY SUCK! No one, EVER, has accused me of being graceful! On Saturday I was on a 10-foot ladder cleaning the cobwebs/wasps nests on our front porch with a broom...when a GIGANTIC spider came flying out of its web and down the broom ... Read more
Chocolate Chili Recipe

This is for Nancy-! I would definitely make this again! It gets sooo thick. I made it with 1 pound high-quality turkey and 1 pound of grass-fed ground beef. Next time I will add a can or two of rinsed black beans to up the fiber. ... Read more
The End

I had another "digestive attack" yesterday so I have decided to give up the Whole30 plan. There just isn't enough fiber to keep me "regular". So this "experiment of one" is over. But was it a waste of time? A resounding NO! Here's w... Read more

This whole foods diet has been a challenge! I've been pouring over recipes on Pinterest and various Paleo blogs looking for recipes. I don't want to buy a lot of expensive ingredients that I may not use going forward, like the soy sauce su... Read more

Saturday, August 16, 2014      12 comments

OK, I won't gross you out with the gory details, but let's just say the lack of fiber in the Whole30 diet has played havoc with my digestive system, attaining crisis level two different times during the past week. And of course, it occurs a... Read more

Whole30, Day 4 (Monday)
Tuesday, August 12, 2014      17 comments

Without a doubt this Whole30 plan takes planning! I had a good day yesterday "on plan". After-dinner snacking has always been my downfall, but with this diet's emphasis on lean protein and good fats I simply haven't been hungry at night... Read more
Whole30, Day3
Monday, August 11, 2014      8 comments

Sunday was another good day completely on plan. I've made some interesting observations about what I've seen on my nutrition tracker. I am over my target for fat. I am using a LOT of olive oil where I would normally use a cooking spray. ... Read more

Had another awesome day yesterday. Can't believe how NOT hungry I am. I made the Avocado Ranch Dressing and it was good, but it had a whole can of full-fat coconut milk in it (600 calories). I thought it would be VERY calorie dense but i... Read more
Whole30, Day 1
Saturday, August 09, 2014      12 comments

I don't usually follow diet plans because I can't stick with them. I prefer a variety of foods. But I decided to try Whole30 for a couple of reasons: some Sparkfriends have had good results with it, and I can't seem to lose any more weight do... Read more
