Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 2 & 3 Rewind

First time visiting? Not super familiar with the Whole30 Timeline? Check this out, and know that it is right on point: WITNESS. Being groggy and grumpy and generally lacking energy, I don’t have a bunch of pretty pictures or witticisms for you in this post. I envy Jeanie and her decision to eat clean for a few days prior to …

Jeanie’s Whole30 Day 2 Rewind

A couple weeks ago Dorothy told me about a small business seminar given by femworking. I knew it was something worthwhile to attend but man, it was in DC! As a suburbanite, the thought of going into the city during rush-hour makes me exhausted just thinking about it. Don’t even get me started on trying to maneuver through crowds crossing …

Dorothy’s Whole30 Day 1 Rewind

If you got the Austin Powers reference, thanks for reading and being generally awesome. I am happy to report that Whole30 Day 1 went off without a hitch on my end. Having woken up a bit later than I wanted to (if you know me this will not shock and surprise you), I didn’t have time to whip up eggs …

Jeanie’s Whole30 Day 1 Rewind

Dorothy and I are going to do things a little differently this goaround on the Whole30.  We’re going to give you as much information as possible about our experiences so you get a feel for what a day-by-day reallife Whole30 looks like. I predict there’s going to be a lot of awesomeness, quite a few triumphs, some feel-good moments, a little bit …

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 …

T-minus 5 Days Until the Next Whole30

Hold on to your hats Ladies and Gentlemen… we’re about go Whole30 on you. Starting Monday, July 21st Dorothy and I are going to embark on our 3rd Whole30 together. It’s been a few months since our last one and we’re really feeling the effects of our indiscretions. I’ve gained a bit of the weight back I lost, I’m not …

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 …

Featured Podcast Friday: “Why You Fail with Paleo”

It’s Friday! *does happy dance in cubicle … regains composure as co-worker passes* It’s also Day 21 of our second Whole30 and I must confess, I’m ready to be done. More than ready. I’ve found myself becoming more and more annoyed with the Diet of Deprivation, as I’ve come to call it (it’s a love/hate relationship). Do I feel great? …

The Devil Inside: Portion Control

So one of my cats is a bit, err, well, he’s fat. Just a little! Sorry, Maceo, but we’re talking about weight and health here. I have always lovingly called him “big-boned,” but we know that’s not true for him … OR me. Why am I bringing up my cat? I’ll tell you. Last few visits to the vet prompted …

Hungry? Panera: Whole30 Style

Yeah, you heard me right. Panera: land of the turkey sandwich with more calories than a Big Mac. If you can stand to enter one of these establishments where you’ll see pastries and smell bread you can’t have before you even get through the second set of double doors, there are actually some really great options! Paleo and Whole30 Veterans will …
