  3. ROUND 2 Day 9: Sunday, August 12 I didn’t keep a detailed log this weekend and can’t remember all the details, so here's a brief summary… I ate only one small pre-workout snack and one meal today. My pre-workout snack didn’t end up being a pre-workout snack because I didn’t actually work out. Instead, I slept some more. I finally got around to eating my usual breakfast of hashbrowns, bacon and eggs around 10:00 am. And then didn’t eat again for the rest of the day. I just didn’t know what to eat and I didn’t want to put a meal together. Today was a really lazy day. After a fail
  4. ROUND 2 Day 8: Saturday, August 11 I didn’t keep a detailed log this weekend and can’t remember all the details, so here's a brief summary… I did eat three meals today (which is an accomplishment these days), including my two favorite meals: (1) hashbrowns, eggs, and bacon, and (2) a large grilled steak and potato. I didn't eat very much fat though, and my first meal was very small because I didn't really feel like eating. I don't think I'm eating enough in general. I spent the morning at the beach with my little sister. We did a 15-minute hike into the beach, swam and snorkel

  12. Well, I'm back. Again. My goals haven't changed. My primary motivation is general health. I am determined to one day be that kick-ass, 80-year old lady on the trail. I want to feel good now and I want to feel good 50 years from now. I am doing this to kick-start a lifetime of healthy eating habits. One of the biggest deterrents to that is convenience (i.e., I generally tend to fall of the bandwagon because fast food and junk food is just so much easier) so I'll be looking for ways to make meal prep fast and easy. I also want to lose weight. I lost about 25 pounds doing Whole30 and then s

  17. So, here I am again. I’m back for another round. I really don’t even remember why I gave up on the last attempt. Which is sad. But... I’m back! And I’m determined that one of these rounds will eventually lead to a permanent lifestyle change! Because I know that this type of eating is what’s best for me. I hope it’s this round that leads to such a change! However, to be completely honest, I’m not entirely sure I’m 100% committed to a full Whole30 this time around. This may end up being some sort of mini reset. Because I have a number of significant roadblocks that will make this really ha
