It is a gorgeous day in Southern Ontario and I am stuck at my desk already. That just totally sucks! This evening I am going to dive into that coconut curry chicken for dinner! Then I will walk the dog for 45 minutes or an hour. I am pla... Read more

Almost done my Whole30 program. I have learned: 1 - I don't miss sugar at all! I do miss the sugar substitutes but I am going to try and stick with the ban on them. 2 - I miss carbs a bit. I will limit to whole grains and try not to... Read more

So, today I chopped and blanched and grilled and prepped food for the next few days. Only 10 more days of the Whole30 program! I can't wait to have a beer. Only a few weeks until my 60km walk. I have to get in all the training I ca... Read more

Okay, this morning the Kitchener-Waterloo Record had a story with the following: This region is mired in a "food swamp" where unhealthy options for eating and drinking are all too abundant. And only a very small fraction of the region'... Read more

So, finally over 1/2 way to cream in my coffee again - or healthier me, take your pick. Tonight I am on my own with the animals again, so it will be frenzied. Rush home, walk the dog, eat a bit, rush to pool, swim an hour and do water aero... Read more

I did not update yesterday as I was in Toronto all day doing fundraising for my cancer walk. It was a scorcher! Not a cloud in the sky. We were outside all day. By the time I got home, I was finished! My husband left for a business trip... Read more
Day 12 of Whole30 - Yeehaw! And the scale batteries died and I don't care!
Friday, August 08, 2014      0 comments

So, moving bravely into Day 12! Feeling greet and still no headaches. Am convinced they are caused by a caffeine addiction. No, almost no caffeine and no headaches! I see a lot of people focused or almost obsessed about the scale. I am ... Read more

Thursday, August 07, 2014      5 comments

So, cruising right along into day 11 and still missing coffee cream and diet pepsi and all sorts of carbs! However it is more of a "what can I eat and how much work is involved in preparing it? I wish I could grab a pita instead" kind of thing... Read more
