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 …

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 …

Why Whole30 Didn’t Change My Life – And Why I’m Coming Back For More

Are you thinking, “Give it a rest already with the Whole30 attempts!”? Sorry, but we’re back on the bandwagon. While reading through past Whole30 Chronicles, you might think this is my “third” Whole30 this year … but it just doesn’t feel right to call it that. I did my first Whole30 before we started this little blog, and the thought behind PiP …

Rome wasn’t built in a day…

I hate running.  It has NOT all been peaches and coconut cream.  Hate is normally a strong word, but in this case it may not be strong enough.  Maybe it’s because I don’t fit the traditional definition of a “runner.”  Maybe it’s because I hate being hot and sweaty.  I’ll have you know I have very real fears about being trapped in …

Step, Slide & Stomp Out of Your Comfort Zone – I Did

If you’ve read any of my posts or talked to me in the last 8 months, you probably know about my recent love affair with Zumba. I’ve become a total junkie, trying new instructors and gyms. I’ve become a total groupie, buying branded clothes and shoes. I’m dancing around the kitchen while I’m doing dishes and have a Zumba step …

Committing to a Paleo lifestyle isn’t just about the food. It’s the whole picture including your physical health. For most of us that means going to the gym. I don’t like going. I don’t feel the endorphin “high” from exercising. I don’t glisten when I work out. I’m not graceful or well-coordinated. For those of you who do like going, …

Stop wishing. Start doing.

I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. It’s no secret that I follow Whole30/Paleo because there are a few pounds on me that I rather never see again.  They interfere with wearing my favorite clothes.  They lower my self-esteem and make me feel bad about myself when I shouldn’t.  And worst of all, they make everyday …

Fabulous Friends & Faith in Yourself

Do you have friends that you can go months (or maybe even years) without seeing and pick up right where you left off? I’m lucky enough to say that I have many – scattered all over the country. Life pulls us all in different directions, but if we’re very lucky, we’ll cross paths again and be there for each other through life’s major …

Peace Out, Whole30

Bad wannabe blogger! Bad! *dodges rolled up newspaper* What kind of amateur hour is this? An entire week without a post? I’m putting myself in a timeout for bad behavior. Although, I do feel I’ve earned a few paleo brownie points. *pats self on back, leaps sideways to avoid another incoming newspaper swipe* I’m happy to announce that (after today’s …
