Whole30 Round 2: Days 16-27

Days 16-27: Tiger Blood! No not even kitten blood.  In fact its more like Groundhog blood.  The last week of our #SeptemberWhole30 has been like the movie Groundhog day.  Same thing each day. Now I’m not saying the way my wife and I feel can be attributed to the Whole30 regimen.  There are other contributing […]

Whole30 Round 2: Day 6-7

Day 6-7: I just want a nap… And boy do I ever want a nap!  It seems like this time around in our Whole30 journey the fatigue has really been impactful.  One reason for that in my case is that I am training for a 5K in addition to doing the Reset. So a lot […]

Whole30 Round 2: Days 4-5

Days 4-5: Kill ALL the Things! I am thankful that we started last Thursday on this and had the weekend to adjust into it.  The extra sleep and access to food has helped me to avoid “killing all the things.”  I have had a dull headache off and on for the past couple of days […]

Whole30 Round 2: Days 2-3

Days 2-3 The Hangover Days 2 and 3 of the Whole30 can be somewhat of a painful experience due to your body starting to adjust to not having some of those unhealthy food choices.  My wife and I both had a headache on day 3 but it wasn’t too bad a couple of days.  She […]

I Hate Brussels Sprouts

I have hated brussels sprouts all my life.  Ever since I was a kid.  My parent’s rarely made them (Dad did the cooking in my household).  It’s one of many vegetables I just didn’t like growing up.  Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage are a couple of the others.    “They’re an acquired taste,” my folks would say. […]

I’m at a loss…

Its day 23 and I don’t know what to say about my Whole30 experience.  We had breakfast for dinner last night.  I had eggs, bacon and potatoes for breakfast.  My wife is at a loss for recipes.  We have only 7 more days and we will have completed the program.  It’s too early to look […]

The Countdown has begun: Day 21

And that means only 9 days left on this Whole30 trek.  Wow has it been three weeks already.  Lunch today was really good and it was leftovers from my wife’s impromptu stir fry.  It truly is amazing what she can just whip together with what we have in the fridge. I am so blessed to […]
