  1. Day 26 Completed and Only 4 to Go! I made a chorizo sweet potato frittata with caramelized onions and cranberries yesterday and had that for breakfast today as well. For lunch I just had a tuna protein salad with boiled egg for extra protein. Dinner was a potato and leek soup that morphed into a spicy turkey kale chowder that was delicious! I have no idea what I am making tomorrow night. I guess I'll try to pick up something to cook on my way home tomorrow. I have two Meals on Wheels routes tomorrow and I really wanted to take something by Linn Park for the people who gather there, most
  2. Yes, I had to force myself to save the rest for tomorrow morning. My husband doesn't usually like fresh cranberries but he loved it as well. The hardest part is cutting it open. I I've thought about microwaving it but I love the flavor roasting adds. I really am enjoying autumn foods more this year because of W30.
  3. The best way to keep me on track is a walk or hike. Obviously you had a great time.
  4. Yay! That is definitely an NSV. I ran out of Larabars and I just am not going to get anymore until after the 30th which is the last day of my W30. Wait, maybe not. I am hiking with my very competitive sister that day. I hiked with my more talkative sister last Friday.
  5. Chorizo Sausage Sweet Potato Frittata with Caramelized Onions and Fresh Cranberries The original recipe came from I cooked some fresh cranberries in apple juice concentrate in the microwave for a minute and added them right before the eggs. It was a great addition. The only thing I would do differently is add more cranberries. This recipe could easily be used with turkey and made into a Thanksgiving or Christmas breakfast frittata.
  6. Day 24 - Only 6 More to Go!!! Doing well with meals. M1 fried eggs, bacon, carnival squash with apples and fresh cranberries M2 LO salmon on top of kale with red bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, and sliced grapes with a concocted sauce. M3 LO grilled turkey breast, squash with apples and fresh cranberries, and apple salad. I am so sore from my hike, more than normal. I was a little dehydrated and saw some floaters towards the end of the hike. I should have taken water but it was a long hike and I didn't want to keep stopping.
  7. @MadyVanilla and @LadyM glad to know it is not everyone's fitness level. I tried it at my first and only yoga class after a 5K run (maybe I did a little walking) and my legs began some serious cramping. I hiked 7.5 miles today and that's all the exercise I will be doing today. I'm just trying some strength training using my own body weight. I'm hoping it will help more than it hurts in the long run.
  8. Amazing! I just finished a hike and feel at least 10 years older in spite of loving the outdoors so much. My grandmother lived to be 93 and the last thing she did was plant flowers before she had a stroke. She had a list of things to do in her car and a change of clothes. I deliver meals for Meals on Wheels and I pray I never end up unable to get out of bed. My goal is to get healthy and remain healthy the rest of my life.
  9. My sister is an accountant and she told me how stressful the exam is. Keeping you in my prayers as you pursue your degree and certification while doing Whole30.
  10. I have never tried this or heard of palmini. Thanks for the tip.
  11. I think I will have a party when I can get rid of all my plus size clothing for good! Smallest I ever wore was a 12 but 10 or 12 is all I really ever hope for. My mom who keeps shrinking (really she is not doing well) keeps handing me her size 8 and 10 clothing as well as everything else up to a 14. Only a few of them are "me" but I take a few and hang onto them because they are classic styles and good quality. Who knows?
  12. It's amazing how much diet affects our lives! Glad you're getting to move into your house. My advice do all you need to do to your house now. I have been waiting for new floors for 25 years. Our house will be paid off next year and the money is going to re-sodding the yard first.
  13. I think I want all the love language I can get! Really I do think of affirmation as one of mine but I am trying to actually get past that because I need it too much. I need to find the affirmation within. My hubby is all about written affirmations. It's so sweet he saves them and I run across them in the oddest places. I need to write more instead of just going into the office and cheering him up.
