Hi! It is absolutely POURING here in Boston today! We have major flood warnings happening, but it’s been a nice calm day in the house. Freddy has been napping pretty much all day (he must be wiped from day-care all week!) and I am able to get a lot of work done in the office.
Like this post that should (more…)
Is it already Day 30?!! ….of the program that felt like it would last for 100 days! I am on to the fast-paced reintroduction phase and I am pretty excited! Honestly, I had to check the calendar like 3 times to be sure the 30 days was over. Once you get the hand of it, it kind of just goes by quickly 🙂
Am I glad I did this? Kinda. Do I think that I feel so much better without eating ____? Not really. Have I learned more about my body and food from this experience? Absolutely. Honestly though, life is too short and if I want to eat a freakin sushi roll every once in a while, I am going to. Everything in moderation and you’ll be golden.

I have practiced being vegan before and because I had this Isa Does it cookbook, I was able to make really good meals all the time, but with Whole30 (it’s only Day 3!!), I am struggling a bit .. I never realized how much I eat grains until I had to eliminate them or sugar — I can’t even talk about it! I crave ice-cream and sweets after every single meal! #struggling Needless to say, this is much harder than a vegan diet — I can go without meat or dairy, but to not be able to have oatmeal with honey for breakfast or make a tofu scramble is NOT EASY! I’m going to stick with it though – there are just so many positive reviews about this program and I really want to find out what foods may be causing issues for me. I talked about that here. Once, I hit (more…)
Every year, I use Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent as the best excuse to really push my health & fitness routine to the next gear. If you read my Friday’s post, I mentioned that I was cutting out all animal products from my diet, but I am not entirely convinced that is (more…)
