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…

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…

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…

Happy Thanksgiving

Quote of the Day: “There is always something to be grateful for.” Happy Thanksgiving! This year is quite different, but there is still so much to be grateful for. Although today’s Thanksgiving will be smaller and quieter than usual, my family will still be spending all day in the kitchen. My parents home cook all the dishes and it is fabulous. When I’m older, I am definitely hand making everything… even though it seems stressful as hell. On the menu today: turkey, creamed corn, potatoes au gratin, mashed potatoes & gravy, stuffing, cranberry, apple pie, and my contribution, pumpkin cheesecake. I cannot wait to PIG…

My Best and Worst Financial Decisions

Quote of the day: “You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.” First off, boo the Lakers won the NBA finals. I was really rooting for anyone but LeBron, but of freaking course he won. I just can’t wait until the new season starts and the Warriors dominate again! Now back to the point of this blog post. I feel like your 20’s are the time for a lot of financial change. You probably have a lot more income than you’re used to. It’s definitely difficult finding that balance between saving money and having fun… in my…
