Tuesday, July 28, 2015      1 comments

The last time I wrote a blog was just after my doctor visit. I received a call from the doctor's office that they want to re-check my blood as my white count and sugar were elevated, most likely due to the dog bite but they want to be sure. I ... Read more
Dr. Visit

Yesterday I went to my doctor for a follow up check after I had asked her about starting the whole 30 diet. The good news was that I hadn't gained any weight. The bad news was that I hadn't lost any. She advised me to do a low-carbohydrate di... Read more

My daughter posted a picture yesterday of her awesome body after losing 20 lbs. She reminds me of what I used to look like in high school when I thought I was too skinny and hated that my hip bones stuck out farther than my tummy. Oh what I'd ... Read more

Life is full of busy tasks. I haven't had much time to spark lately. Usually, when I am on call, it's mostly stand-by but this time it wasn't. I was called in almost every night and logged many hours of OT. Following my active work week, was... Read more

Tuesday, May 26, 2015      1 comments

So after my Dr. visit last Friday, I decided to quit the Whole 30 plan. She didn't really tell me it was bad and in fact, she really liked it. She also told me that to reset your system, you only need to do the plan for one week and not 30 day... Read more

5 Days on Whole 30
Thursday, May 14, 2015      2 comments

I started this on Saturday and yesterday was probably my worst day. I was grouchy and didn't feel good. My daughter experienced the same symptoms the day prior. I'm pretty sure that the reason I felt this way is because I didn't eat enough. ... Read more
Whole 30 Diet
Monday, May 11, 2015      3 comments

So I'm not supposed to use the work "Diet" as it sets you up for sabotage before getting started. But the Whole 30 is a diet plan to help figure out what causes you to be unhealthy. The way it works is that you eliminate ingredients (ex: sug... Read more
