Today I am going to be short and sweet. Which was not at all like my day 5 of the Whole30 program. It was a long day and not nearly sweet enough, but that is why I am doing this. Woke up dead tired again with no energy. Even after eating the egg casserole and dringking […]Read More Tuesday Bluesday 5
Its day 4 and it started off fine enough. Had my casserole, off to work, taught class. All was going well until the afternoon hit. I don’t remember ever being as tired. I had slept okay but didn’t think it would be this bad. I guess that sugar and caffeine fix inthe afternoon was quite […]Read More Monday, Day 4…Zzzzzzzz
So yesterday on our day 2 I busted my wife. No harm, no foul, this is tough. Especially, giving up things that are as much as a routine as anything else. Her coffee routine is pretty well ingrained and coffee creamer and sweetener is the toughest “change” we have both had to make. I was […]Read More Sunday, Fun-day3
Oh how I love Saturdays! I love that I get to sleep in on Saturdays. Instead of being woken up by my fitbit at 5:30 on Saturdays my daughter wakes me up by ‘singing’ at 7:30. After many smiles from the little girl and an 8 oz bottle of formula its back to sleep for […]Read More Saturday, we can do this!
This is real. This is Day 1 of the Whole30. My wife and I have started the 30 day program. Since there are 30 days in the month of April and there is no time like the present. Here we go. I am coming off a successful purging of sugar and potato chips for 40 […]Read More This is not an April’s Fools Gag…

It is purely observational and causation while inferred is […]Read More The curious case of the Sweet-Heart
It’s hard to believe the last time I posted was leap day almost two weeks ago. Who or what can I blame? Lack of sleep is always a good one. With a five month old who is teething I have been getting into sleep debt during the week and sleeping more on weekends. -or- I just […]Read More And let us not grow weary…
Today was an extra day. Well not really, but you can’t really have a quarter of a day every year. That being said what all did you do with your extra day? While, this Leap year’s extra day unfortunately HAD to be a Monday I spent honoring it with 29 reps on two of my exercises. Push-ups […]Read More Leap Day!
So finished off this week and did well with my workouts. Our little girl went to the pediatrician and is pushing 15 lb. So its a good thing I have 15 lb dumbbells at work. It has been a week and a half avoiding sugar and I can tell you that its tough. Especially when […]Read More ‘Can’t think of a snappy title’ Weekly Review
I have given up sugar for Lent so that means for the next 40 days. So that means no more sugar in my coffee, no more candy, no more cookies. And I have quite the sweet tooth. No more hot chocolate. No more cake or desserts with sugar. Pretty difficult to do. Not without help. […]Read More No Sugar
