Jeanie’s Whole30 Days 12-15 Rewind

Admittedly I have slacked in my efforts to provide a daily blow-by-blow. Don’t be mad! Unlike a high school breakup, it really was me, not you. Since John got home last Thursday it’s been a mad dash to get everything accomplished we need to in a day. Since the last four days have fallen neatly into a phase of the Whole …

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 …

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 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 …
