Whole30 – DAY 30!

What a great month! I feel great physically and mentally after a month of a totally clean diet and nice, calming activities. Yoga is challenging but peaceful. I like my new-found peace. WIth that being said… I ran today. I had a running clinic with the running club with Coach Katie. It was great seeing …

Whole30 – Day 29

Time flies. It is hard to believe that July is already over. It has been a busy, but good, month. One of the many things I have learned this month doing the Whole 30 is that food is just food. Yes, there are special occasions and good meals, but not every meal has to be …

Whole30 – Day 25

Whole30 – Day 23

Whole30 – Day 22

What a great day! I was productive and relaxed… I love this new calmness that I have. I am looking forward to working out again, but I like the peace I have found in not running around like a crazy woman trying to prove myself all the time. I don’t know what the heck I …

Whole30 – Days 19, 20, 21

Another weekend of eating out. No matter how good of choices you make at restaurants there is still the sodium to battle. Today I woke up feeling swollen from the salt. I took my nephew down to Atlanta to see the Aquarium, CNN and the Coca Cola museum. I found a nice restaurant by the …

Whole30 – Day 18 – A new state of mind

I actually think I am becoming a calm person. Not like I have ever been hyper or anything.. .more of a calm mind. Nothing seems to really bother me this week. I find that I am sleeping soundly and waking up before the alarm (mostly because I have set my alarm for later). It might …
