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 …

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 …

Proof you can finish a 5k without zombies chasing you!

Who knew it was possible?!?  Go Honey Badgers! Go! While the better half of PiP was in Chicago enjoying a well-deserved birthday weekend with her boyfriend, I participated in the long awaited LoziLu 5k Mud Run.  I’d been prepping for it for it for about two months, but quite honestly up until halfway through the actual race, I wasn’t sure …

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 …

Quit Staring at My [Burger] Buns!

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Last night we decided we were craving the classic Fourth-Food: BURGERS. Of course the most paleo/Whole30 of ways to have a great burger is to put your organic, grass-fed meat on a “green bun” (lots of lettuce leaves) and load up on your favorite healthy fixings: tomato, onion, pickle, mushrooms, egg, mustard … whatever your little …
