My Whole30-ish Experience

Quote of the Day: “Eat to fuel your body, not to feed your emotions.” 30 days OVER. What an experience. Today I am sharing all about my experience. Why I Decided to Try Whole30As mentioned in previous posts, I decided to try Whole30 for the beginning of 2021 because I wanted to reset my body. I basically spent a whole freaking year indulging myself and eating ice cream and chocolate and nachos and all the bad stuff you can think of. My stomach was happy, but I didn’t feel super great and I definitely didn’t look great. So, it was time for a change. How…

Monthly Goals for February 2021

Quote of the Day: “Don’t give up because you had a bad day, forgive yourself and do better tomorrow.” One month down (well almost) 11 more to go! So far 2021 seems to be okay…what do you think? At the beginning of January, I made a list of goals or “resolutions” I wanted to focus on for that month. How did I do? My biggest goal was to attempt the Whole30 diet. If you are an avid follower of my blog, then you’ve probably read my Whole30 updates and know that I’ve cheated a little bit, but you know, I’ve done a lot better than…

Whole30 Week 2 + 3 Review

Quote of the Day: “It’s normal to not eat perfectly.” This quote says it all and pretty much sums up my weeks 2 and 3 on the Whole30 diet. I have for sure broken some rules on this thing, but you know, I still feel like I’m seeing some good results. The second week was a lot harder than week one. I mean, I didn’t have any serious cravings, but I did cheat. I learned that if I don’t have a plan of what I’ll be eating, then 1. I won’t be eating or 2. I will most likely cheat or 3. I will just…

The Stresses of a 20-Something

Quote of the Day: “Nothing will ruin your twenties more than thinking you should have your life together already.” “Your twenties are the best time of your life.” Have you ever heard this before? I certainly have. When I was in middle school and high school, I would dream of being in my twenties. I thought I would finish college, move to this amazing city, work a big-girl job, be married by 28, have a kid by 29 and yada yada. As I write that out, I’m starting to think I got that “perfect life” idea from a random Hallmark movie… explains a lot. Well,…

Whole30 Week 1 Review

Quote of the Day: “Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body.” So for the New Year, my goal is to get back into healthy eating. In 2020… and 2019, I kind of let myself go a little and ate a lot of ice cream and chocolate and although it was amazing, my clothes didn’t like it too much and my scale didn’t like it either. I decided that in 2021 I was going to attempt the Whole30 diet. The Whole30 diet is an elimination diet where you cut out dairy, grains, alcohol, legumes, and sugar for 30 days and then slowly…
