Wheel in the sky

Thursday already?? This morning’s Pandora shuffle landed on a great one from Journey and it’s been in my head all day. I overslept this morning but thankfully, my kids know what to do when they arrive each day. We have such a staggered arrival time over 20 minutes, they have an easy-breezy social time until …

Where’s my Pork, Chipotle?

When I woke up this morning, dragging, the first thing I remember thinking is about our date night to Chipotle tonight. I already knew what I was going to have because it is the ONLY thing that is Whole30 compliant-Pork Carnitas salad. The other meats are cooked in rice bran or soybean oil and I …

Terrific Tuesdays

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I know, tuesdays are usually not my favorite days and I may have whined about them a LOT in the past. I’m sure I’ll find more reasons to severely dislike those days, but this morning was not bad at all. I woke up, not too terribly exhausted, and I was HUNGRY. I …

I miss sugar-Whole30

I’m cold. I’m hungry. I’m irritable. And I don’t have the energy to run or workout…yet! This is the main reason I need a complete break from sugar and non-gluten grains. Sugar is highly addictive and the severity of addiction varies from person to person.With me, I’m extremely dependent on sugar. I crave it like …

Whole30-Bring on the fun.

Time to get moving and get busy! I normally hate Tuesdays on principle, but today started out great! My drive across the Black Warrior bridge. Beautiful sunrise. I’m slowly working on a half marathon training plan for a local half in March. And I need to figure out where to travel for my 3 Rock …

Whole30 2015

It’s that time of year again. I’m honestly glad to get past the holiday foodapalooza and back to some form of healthy eating. Sugar is my demon and it must be defeated. If you are new to my site and interested in hard and fast results of my first, and most-succesful (more on the failed …

Moving on to the big show

Today was an epic fail. All around colossal epic FAIL. Let me paint you a picture. 2:30am. Spending some time hugging the bowl. Nerves or glucose out of control. This can happen in the early days of cutting sugar completely. My pancreas doesn’t know how to handle the lack of incoming sugar. 5:30 am. Go …

Market Day

I woke up really early because I had two things to accomplish: Escape Wal-Mart with all my appendages in place and get to the Farmer’s Market before it got too hot to enjoy living. Normally, getting to Wal-Mart before 10 am was a good bet. But this is Tax-Free weekend for back-to-school. I expected a …

Sunday snoozing W30:D21

After church, we decided to visit a new place..and this one is familiar with Stephen’s footsteps, but not mine. We were looking for rain gutters. And I was looking for the big rolly thing. I knew from experience that Home Depot had a great one and I need to try the big blue one to …

W30:D16 Let the Party begin

I woke up ready to tackle the world. Or at least this. This is the Random room. It’s where we put stuff we don’t have a place for yet. And the craft room filled with half-completed projects. And the photography room where the food pic magic happens, but the real magic is wading through this …
