Whole 30: Day 10
Wednesday, January 10, 2018      20 comments

This was Day 10 of my Whole 30 experiment. I've been 100% compliant. One third finished. So far, so good. Part of the reason I decided to try this elimination diet is to see if it would relieve the congestion that I have most days. For sure the... Read more

My Life as a Dawg, Whole 30 Day 1
Tuesday, January 02, 2018      18 comments

I'm one day into the Whole 30 regime. They suggest that you not track calories, macronutrients, etc. Certainly no weighing yourself on the scale. I'm OK with no weighing... still don't have the best relationship with that device. I will continue... Read more

Oh my goodness, Sparkers. I think I have a carbohydrate hangover. Two weeks on unaccustomed sweets and extra evening cocktails has taken its toll on me. I imagine there are a few other Sparkers feeling the same. I read up on the Whole 30 d... Read more

More back to the routine! After 4 straight days of no intentional exercise, it felt good to get back to the gym. Between the time off and the brutally cold morning (10 degrees! Yikes!), my old body was a little creaky. And the rest of the 6 AM C... Read more

Sparkers! It's a brand new day! Work has been off the charts stressful. I've been down this road before. It's not good, but this time I know the warning signs and I know what I need to do to keep from going off the rails. I'm much healthier now ... Read more

I had two exceptional work outs this week, Sparkerettis. On Wednesday, Andrew did his best to break the 6AM Crew. He denies it, but I noticed he has that self-satisfied grin on his face. Today, I busted my own butt. It was the least I could do -... Read more
