The Time Has Come, My Little Friends, To Talk of Other Things

Hello, hello! Yes, my last Paleo post was in August of last year, and though I’ve had an inner debate as to whether or not I’d continue this specific blogging journey, I’ve resigned to the fact that this phase has run its course for me. Quitter? Maybe (I’m also also 14 days smoke-free today so put that in your pipe and … …

Dorothy’s Whole30: FULL RECAP

Everyone’s Whole30 is going to be different, and your first might be different from your third, but there are certainly some common themes that have come to light as people around the world have given Whole30 a shot. Whole30’s Official Timeline sums up what you can expect very nicely, and even manages to interject some humor through the rough parts. I …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 26-30

I suppose I should start off with some somber music before I dive into what I’m about to tell you. Go ahead and click play, adjust your speakers or headphones, and allow the music to enhance your reading experience. I’ll wait. All set? Have I selected the song due to the Whole30 being over? Yes and no – it’s over …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 20-25

Now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ ’bout! I waited and waited for what seemed like forever, and finally the Tiger Blood began coursing through my veins again. With all this energy, you would have thought I’d have had time to put up a proper post at some point, wouldn’t you? Say what you will, but I’m very happy with what I’ve …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 16-19

My energy levels are definitely up over the last week or so … but I ain’t feelin’ so magical just yet. I’ve felt the tiger blood before … it’s an incredible rush of energy, confidence and accomplishment. I feel good – but I don’t feel … that. Nonetheless, Days 16-19 get an overall “good” rating, and for that I am thankful. …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 12-15

Rather than trying to fit a breakdown of four separate days in one long post, I figure I’ll give you a general recap so as not to bore you to tears. Suffice it to say, the timeline is half-right in my experience this time around. Boundless energy, indeed! Friday through Monday was a whirlwind of productivity, exercise, and good (compliant) eatin’. …

THANK YOU! (Yes … YOU.)

Dear Reader, I’m writing this letter on Day 17 of my Whole30, and yes, I do owe you a recap of Days 12-15 – it’s in draft form, but I felt this post took precedence over that one for the time being. I wanted to make time to share my feelings about this blog and my experience over the last six …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 10 & 11

As I skipped over the last phase, I was hoping I might be able to sail through this one as well. Things went pretty well on Day 10 … Day 11 was a beast all its own! Day 10 started off with leftovers – repurposed of course! I took one of the salmon cakes from Day 9, reheated it in …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 8 & 9

Finally! Dorothy gets to defy a phase in the timeline! This phase is generally semi-unpleasant, other than the fact that we get to refer to Ryan Gosling. Many people experience a little, shall we say, digestive discomfort right about now. This is due to the change in what we’re feeding our bodies. Hallelujah, I get to skip something. I’ve been …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 6 & 7

Who doesn’t love a good nap, I mean really? Why should this be a dreaded phase? When you’re lucky enough to be able to nap mid-day (say you work from home or you’re lounging around on a Sunday afternoon) naps are a wonderful thing – but when you are just above the line of functioning without one, your day can be …
