Whole 30 {60} Week 3

Whole 30 {60} Week 3

ABM_1398001870This week has been interesting. I have struggled with chocolate cravings, been to a birthday party filled with temptation and been crazy hungry, even after I have eaten.

Going into week three is difficult. It’s not just that you get tired of the food, it’s also that you start to emotionally miss the foods you gave up. I remember this really well from the first time around. I made dirty…

Making a Difference

ex be the changeI starting eating well to take care of myself. When I started the Whole30 in January it was to get myself off sugar and see if there were other issues I was having with food and didn’t realize. You know, like legumes, which just happen to make me break out all over my body. Good times. What I didn’t realize is that while I was doing this, I was making an impression on the people I was working…

Whole30 {60} Week 2

Whole30 {60} Week 2

ex mini egg white chocolateLast week was a good week. I had a plan for food and it all went well! I noticed this week that I have stopped thinking about my Starbucks coffee, which is a good thing. By Friday though I was finding my cravings for chocolate coming back. ANNOYING. Especially considering this was the time when I wanted Robert to start eating sweet things in front of me. Also, why does it have to be Easter? And…

Looking at the Past, Building my Future

Looking at the Past, Building my Future

This is possibly one of the most personal blogs I have written to date. I have been doing a lot of thinking going into this blog post. It has hit me during this Whole30 that I am no longer the person I used to be. My view on food is so completely changed that I have a hard time remembering how I used to eat. Thanks to some friends, I have been able to piece together what I used to eat. I can’t…

Celebrity Status

ABM_1397011834Had an interesting time last night at Longhorn Steakhouse–a place my husband and I love and is whole30 compliant when I order the right things, with specific rules. Well! My specifications have made me a mini celebrity within this restaurant. When the waitress came over to take our order I went first and apologized to her because I had questions and was going to be picky. First I wanted to know…

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

movie poster captain america 2Hello everyone! Long time no review. But let’s be honest, the movies that come out over the winter have been stinkers. And we know I only write reviews about movies that excite me. And finally one has come along!! Summer movies are here, and a month early! Awesome!!

Whole30 The Sequel - Week 1

Whole30 The Sequel – Week 1

This Whole30 the second time around is much better mentally. It’s not comparable from the first time. I have been making most of my meals the Whole30 way since my first go around, so now I am using the second time as an excuse to try new recipes. This week I went with my old faithfuls–slow cooked ribs, bison burgers, eggs with chorizo, salad, cauli-rice and green beans. I took the opportunity to…
