The end is here...or is it?
Day 30!  I made it!  Not a single crystal of sugar, not a drop of alcohol, no grains, legumes, or dairy. Last week I traveled 3 out of 5 days and still made it work.  I went to a Mexican restaurant with my co-workers on one of the nights and did not join th...

Day 16
Well, I've made it past the halfway mark without cheating once!  Last night, I had co-workers over for a team dinner and despite the freely flowing wine, I poured myself a mineral water in a wine glass and didn't even feel deprived. Dinner was Greek themed ...

Waiter, I need a drink

Day Three
Apparently right on cue, day three brought on a headache this afternoon;  a constant dull ache, only moderately tempered by two aspirin.  The eating plan has been relatively easy to follow and still no hunger pains.  Breakfast was an egg scramble with lefto...

Day 2 - Kitchen Gadgets
Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a certain affinity for kitchen gadgets.  So, to make meals a little more interesting while on Whole30, I bought myself a spiralizer. It doesn't look like much, does it?  Tonight I made zucchini "spaghetti" in place...

Whole30 - Day 1
For those who don't want to be bored by my daily ramblings for the next 30 days...well, don't read this. As I said in my last post, I want to keep myself accountable and committing to posting daily will help with that. If you're still reading, you might wan...

It's been a while
So folks, it's been a while since the last post about our Appalachian Trail thru hike.  Quite a while. It's hard to believe that two years has passed since we started our hike.  Just yesterday we pulled out the journal I kept and we read about our first day...
