Day 11 – Finally some energy!

Today was the first day I really felt more energetic – now, it is 8:45 p.m. and I am about ready for bed, but let’s just go with baby steps. I noticed at about 2:30 that I wasn’t in my normal slump. I am ecstatic at the thought that my body might be adjusting to…

Day 10 – Goodnight!

Sometimes it feels like we’ve been doing the Whole30 for just a couple of days, and other times it feels like we’ve been doing the Whole30 for consecutive months on end. Today was a little bit easier in terms of food, but my brain has been fried and I’ve had a bit of a headache…

Days 9 – All downhill

I am a little behind on blogging, but you should be thankful I didn’t share my hot little mess last night. Yesterday started out great – I made breakfast for the first time in this journey, and I felt great. I met a friend and went for a walk over our lunch breaks. I was…

Day 8 – Need a Snack

Today was another good day – good food, good exercise, and good feeling. I noticed today for the first time that I am feeling much more focused, so I can only hope that a little more energy will follow soon. I was a little more reserved in my exercising last week (and by reserved, I…

Day 7 – One Week Down!

Today has been spent exercising, napping, and cooking more food! The Whole30 is no joke for a couple of reasons – it takes a lot of willpower, a lot of time and thought, and a lot more money than we would normally spend on food. While I’m sure that you can do the Whole30 for…

Day 6 – Lots of Walking

Today was another great day – I started the morning out with a 5K walk, and came home to enjoy lunch with my husband and my mom before spending some time shopping with my dad. Today was not without its challenges – my dad, stepmom and I went to my favorite Omaha pizza place, Dudley’s….

Day 5 – Success

Today was a good day – it was Friday, the sun was shining, I noticed that I started a mason jar salad trend at work, I got to see family (and share good dinner with them!) and overall felt good. Breakfast: Apple with almond butter Lunch: Chicken, Salad and Avocado Dressing Dinner: Crockpot Spaghetti sauce with Zoodles Slow…

Day 4 – On The Up

Today was much better than yesterday! No pictures to share again- but I will do better tomorrow! I managed to go to HyVee twice today (starting to think I may have an unhealthy obsession with this place), and it was much easier to walk away from the bakery. I had some time to kill this morning and…

Day 2 (Only 28 to go!)

Today was a little more difficult – my brain really started to miss Diet Coke and my afternoon chocolates (and every other piece I now realize that I have been sneaking through the day). Snacking has been a really hard battle for me, but I am hoping that a week from today it will be…

Out With the Old

About a week ago, my husband mentioned that he would be open to trying the Whole30 diet. Open. To. Trying. Three words he now probably regrets. Last year, my cousins tried the Whole30 diet and it completely changed their lives – they started exercising regularly, eating well, and now look amazing. They have kept up…
