Whatever, I’m Getting Cheese Fries

i KiD, i KiD. Whole30 Day 12 and right on schedule with this godforsaken timeline. This thing is so on point, it scares me. All I want is a damn drive-thru (ah-ah don’t correct me, not through, THRU) cheeseburger. No, not a W30 burger with a fried egg of top and lots of toppings over lettuce with mustard vinaigrette. With …

Giada: We know she’s sexy … did you know she can be Paleo?!

I can’t wait for Woman Crush Wednesday. It’s too far away. I adore Giada De Laurentiis. She’s Italian (fist pump), beautiful, articulate, and can cook her cute little ass off. I’m pretty sure Everyday Italian was my first cookbook purchase. I bought it in college when I decided that maybe being domesticated and able to cook would land me a …

Don’t Let The Dressing Room Defeat You

This weekend started out great. I made a delicious Whole30 meal after Zumba Friday night, got a good amount of sleep, woke up early and hit the gym with Jeanie and John for Body Pump on Saturday, had a satisfying and compliant lunch out at a restaurant and headed home to get a jump on the rest of my day. …

SCiENCE EXPERiMENTS: Meatball Shop Meatballs … Whole30 Style

So I dragged my happy ass back to the gym for the first time in 2 weeks today. My Zumba instructor (whom I adore) gave me a little friendly shit for missing so many classes. I tried to come up with an excuse, and then grovel for forgiveness; in the end the only thing to do was give it everything …

Smart Shopping: Whole30 @ Costco!

I’m using my horoscope as an excuse to keep my butt on the couch this evening rather than going to Zumba. Yes, I read my horoscope daily, sue me. I’m a Cancer if you’re curious. If you weren’t – sorry. What has been seen cannot be unseen. Now is where we enter the Judgement Free Zone (JFZ). If we’re going …

Am I a Whole30 Groupie or Paleo?

So you have come to our page and are looking around a bit and ask yourself, “Why the hell is this thing using paleo in the title instead of Whole30? Clearly that’s all they’ve written about.” For the moment, you’re right. We’re focusing on the Whole30 challenges we finished up and the next round that starts today through the month of March …

“One Stomach Flu Away from My Goal Weight”

Well, no, not really. We’re gearing up for W30 Round 2 TOMORROW!! As I confessed in my last post, I had put on a few pounds after consuming carbs left and right post-W30. This week got me back down to my W30 end point via norovirus. I’m writing this a little tongue-in-cheek, partially because I have never had an excuse to …

And BOOM! Goes the Dynamite

i DiD iT! Since I beat myself up in my last post I figured my day of celebration should include a little pat on the back for the couple things I did right during my Whole30. I prepped the pantry. Hiding everything that was non-compliant ensured that neither myself nor my boyfriend munched mindlessly on banned items. The sign was just …

I Can See the Light!

… but there are a few shadows behind me. I’m 5 days out from finishing my first Whole30 and introduction to the paleo lifestyle! I’m feeling pretty darn good about myself – I’ve almost made it! I know I haven’t done everything perfectly this first go-round. There’s definitely room for improvement next month when the bell rings for Round 2 …

We’re Getting a Little Excited

Jeanie and I are currently brainstorming ways to make our blogging adventure fun, informative and addictive. We hope you’ll become a regular visitor as we get off and running. We’re currently wrapping up a Whole30 (I “graduate” 11 February!) and we’ll be taking a break until 1 March before we start the next one. We plan on getting our thoughts together and …
