I keep doing this.

I know it.  I mean to be more consistent with my posts, but I guess I just feel like nothing I have to say is ever very important so why would anyone want to read it?  I think that comes from a deep seeded feeling of just not wanting to seem so self-involved.  Whatever, that’s…

Progress

Hello there. Since my last post, I have decided to make some changes to some of my routines and adjustments to the way I consume (anything) while working.  One thing you should know about me is that I need an herbal aid for sleeping.  No, I’m not talking about tea or melatonin(neither of which work…

It’s been a while.

Well, here I am, back at it again. It’s been a long time gone already since I’ve gone through my Whole30 last September, and I know I said I would update when I was done and I don’t think I ever did.  Well, I MEGA fell off that train after trying and succeeding at just…

Wow, sorry about that…

I’ve been so busy that I nearly forgot all about this blog.  I’m currently finishing up my lunch break so this is only going to be a quick check-in.  September Whole30 still going strong on day 27, but very much looking forward to concluding.  Holy buckets I’m so excited to be able to eat mostly…

Whole30 Round1, Day7

Greetings, friends.  This morning marked day 7 of my Whole30.  Physically, I feel pretty great.  Tired, yes, but that’s to be expected when you completely eliminate a major (albeit crappy) energy source from your diet.  I miss sugar.  I really do.  I had to try some frosting earlier today and was very diligent (but sad)…

Whole30 Round 1, Day 1

September Whole30 is upon us.  I started this morning feeling less than excited and confident, despite having prepped and planned for the last month.  I don’t plan to quit- don’t get it twisted- I just know I’m going to miss a lot of my old ways.  Being a pastry chef/cake decorator and constantly being surrounded…

T minus 2 days!

Wednesday, August 30.  Tonight is the Depeche Mode show down in Chicago (can’t wait!) and it is going to be a looooooooooonnnnnnggggg day.  Also tonight will be Mister Charlie-Man’s first sleepover at grandma and grandpa’s house.  I’m not worried about him at all.  I think he’ll be just fine.  I’ll miss him terribly, of course-…

Birthday whatever, mirror-glaze what NOT to do, and more Whole30 prep

This past Monday was my 32nd birthday.  I celebrated by making myself cake and going out to lunch and bumming around a mall with my husband and our baby.  I’m such a wild woman, I know.  The cake, though, was something else.  I’ve been wanting to attempt a fancy mirror-glazed mousse cake for some time…

Sorry…

The last week and a half or so have been a bit hellish, and I haven’t had any time to post.  I apologize for my negligence and hope it doesn’t become a pattern.  I’m down to T minus two weeks before I start my first round of Whole30.  I’m simultaneously beyond excited and dreading it….

I already quit.

I made it just the two days on W30, then realized I was fighting a ridiculous uphill battle this month and decided I would rather prep all this month and still enjoy myself during all the events coming up.  I’m not all that upset about it, if we’re being honest here.  I also feel like I…
