Jeanie’s Whole30 Day 9 Rewind

The Mental & the Physical Day 9: For the love of Gosling, my pants are TIGHTER. Today started off pretty great. Woke up, jumped out of bed, and got ready for work. Maybe the tiger blood is showing up a little early because I had a lot of energy. I did notice my rings were tighter so I’m guessing I’m …

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 …

Jeanie’s Whole30 Day 8 Rewind

I miss John. I really do. But wow it’s been so nice being able to stay up late and still get 7-8 hours of sleep because he’s not waking me up at 5:15am to get ready for work. That’s right folks. Even though I work 6 miles from my doorstep and don’t have to be there until 8am, I’m still …

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 …

Jeanie’s Whole 30 Day 7 Rewind

The Mental & the Physical Day 7: I just want a nap… You know it’s a good day when you wake before the four-legged creatures taking up valuable real estate in your bed. I did get 9 hours of sleep but I don’t think that qualifies me as being in the “I just want a nap” phase. It is the …

Jeanie’s Whole30 Day 5 & 6 Rewind

The Mental & the Physical Day 5: Kill all the things. and Day 6: I just want a nap… Well I continue to defy the timeline and Dorothy’s experience. Not only have I not wanted to kill all the things… I haven’t even really felt annoyed. Of course that could do with the fact that John is out of town until …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 4 & 5 Rewind

Alright, so things weren’t quite so dramatic in the “Kill All the Things” stage as the meme above may illustrate. I’m totally fine with that. Anyone who knows me will tell you they don’t need me any more quick to irritate than usual … hopefully they will say it with love. :) Breakfast and lunch weren’t anything to write home about: …

Whole30: Chicago Cravings

So maybe you’ve read in the last few posts I went to Chicago last weekend. Sorry, I’ll try to stop talking about it after this post, but it was my first time there – and I loved every second of it. I went up to meet the boy who was on a ten day business trip over the weekend. You’d …

Jeanie’s Whole30 Day 4 Rewind

You know what’s pretty awesome? Hearing the doorbell in the middle of the day… thinking it’s another @#)(@)*#@ door-to-door salesman… opening it and finding your neighbor standing there with a container of beautiful homegrown tomatoes. You know what else is pretty awesome? Losing 3 pounds since Monday! I know! I know! Don’t look at the scale… but I swear it …

Jeanie’s Whole30 Day 3 Rewind

The Mental & the Physical Day 3: The Hangover. I should totally be in hangover territory but I’m not. *happy dance* Was it the last week before starting the Whole30 where I was trying to eat clean(er) for the mud run? Who knows… don’t care. Of course, my hangover could just be late to the game. If it is, I …
