    Dec 1st...it's go time!
    Made it till about day 10 last month and then the wheels came off. I did drop 10 pounds in 10 days and felt pretty damn good.

    Is anyone using any apps or wearables for tracking exercise etc.....?
     
    I've been using RunKeeper for years as well as Digifit.com. I use MyFitnessPal, but for these 30 days I'm not tracking any food.
     
    I also love my FitBit for tracking steps, trying to hit 10,000 every day.

    In Jackson MS for the evening, found a grocery store and stocked up on carrots, water and found the remnants of a backed chicken in the deli area, poor bird apparently he had four legs.
    Chicken for dinner and chicken for breakfast....ugh..... hopefully better choices in the next town.
    Everybody keep hanging tough!

    Interesting, I bought some organic eggs yesterday and noticed when cracking them this morning that the shells were much tougher/thicker than the store brand eggs and believe it or not they really taste better. Wow not even 9:00 am and I've already learned something today........

    My goal today is to finish packing my new kitchen pantry and roast those lovely sweet potatoes I have been neglecting, oh, and put my pork roast in the slow cooker.

    My goals for today: have a productive day of work, make it through a trip to Whole Foods without spending a fortune, get the laundry folded. 
     
    Stretch goal: get the dog outside for a walk. We just moved to Denver in August from Houston & this is the dog's first experience with snow. She's.... not a fan.

     We had a brutal partner WOD on Saturday and this evenings was short but tough. I blog as well, but it's more travel related than tracking my health.

    Pretty good weekend considering we had a birthday dinner, but we ended up cooking steaks instead of going out.
     
    Had a blistering workout Saturday and went for a nice 3 mile walk today......tonight we dine on meatloaf.

    It's a journey not a destination, look at all the things you did in the past week and then continue forward

    Oh Day 8, you were my nemesis the last time but its almost over and I made it. But I am coming down with a cold; my throat is so raw! This week will be a challenge as I am putting together my UK visa application to remain indefinitely and I have another job interview...stress!! I think dealing with immigration in any country is maddening as there never seems to be a simple anwser!
    I just have to breathe, do what I can, and keep going. Im going to my second crossfit class tomorrow (cold allowing) which I am actually looking forward to! Keep it up everyone!

    Hey all! I made it through the weekend & I have today off work so I'm about the head to the grocery store & then start on some prep.
     
    I went out to dinner last night for a belated birthday celebration & had a delicious meal! However, they served an amuse bouche that definitely had some creamy cheese in it. Other than that one half-bite, the meal was entirely compliant - and DELICIOUS. Colt and Gray in Denver for the WIN.
     
    My partner stepped UP this weekend on the cooking. She made breakfast Saturday & Sunday, then went cooking CRAZY on Saturday. She made a giant pot of gumbo z'herbes (chicken bone broth, 5 heads of greens, one ham hock --> a nearly infinite supply of delicious bowls of health). Then she also slow-roasted a pork butt (12+ hours in the oven at 180 degrees F). The house smelled incredible towards the end. Today she's making compliant BBQ sauce & we're going to have pulled pork! I'm going to make sweet potato wedges & cole slaw. Dinner is going to ROCK.
     
    I'm feeling pretty good today - I'm a little worn out from having a house guest for four days, but she's leaving tomorrow morning & I can hang in for one more day. We've been going hiking nearly every day which certainly has contributed to the tiredness.  But also I'm a big-time introvert & I've had no time alone. This morning I am sitting on the sofa with NO-ONE else in the house & let me tell you, it is restorative. 
     
    Glad to see everyone's check-ins & great progress! We can make it through Days 10 and 11, together!

    Hey everyone! Happy Monday!
     
    I cannot tell you how excited I am for this week. I'm already feeling some pretty big improvements and so excited to see what another week will bring. I heard so many of us say that weekends were always the toughest to stay on track. How did everyone do this past weekend???? I was so proud of myself for getting through an entire weekend and totally staying on course and eating meals as I had planned. I definitely had my temptations but I thought of the BIGGER and BETTER picture. I think today is Day 9 for me....I'm really not concerned with the number of days anymore. But I'm feeling great and I know I've already lost a couple of pounds which feels nice. I've had a couple 6-7 miles runs in the past few days and they felt pretty amazing. Before I started Whole30, I had a lot of stomach issues which foods upsetting my stomach, bloating, etc. I haven't had that in 9 days. I don't remember the last time I've ever gone for a stretch that long. And I even eat well for the most part anyways. Amazing what whole, real food can do for the body. 
     
    I hope everyone else is doing feel. The tiger blood is on the way for us all. Hang in there and rely on the support of others that can pick you up when needed! Much love to my fellow Whole30ers!
