Whole 30:Day 3

I hate sugar. HATE it. Maybe what I’m trying to say is I hate my addiction to the stuff. Today was not complete torture but it wasn’t smooth sailing. Headaches have started up. And just like last time, after 3 days of no sugar, I’m not about to cheat now. I’m also sweating a lot …

Monday’s not so bad…yet.

Happy Monday! What a CRAZY day! We had wild kids, faculty meetings, upcoming weather mischief, late afternoon CrossFit class and an extra 4 miles for base building. By the time I got home, all I wanted to do was crawl in a hot tub and crash for the night. Tomorrow, a book I have been …
