Day 202 – 7.21.2011

Just to prove to you guys that I'm not sitting around eating my face off, here's a picture of my puddle of sweat from this morning's WOD! Deadlifts followed by tabatas of wall-balls, ball slams, and pushups. All in this wonderful (read: horrendous) Virginia heat. Fun, no? Gotta love it. I've been reading a lot […]

Days 199, 200 (!!), 201

Whoo! I've made it over the 200th day mark! I don't know what's crazier, the fact that I'm in the 200's or the fact that over 200 days of the year have gone by. Anyhoo, I'm clumping days together because it's less spam-y (not this spam-y) and because I'm lazy. Monday started hella early (early […]

Day 193 – 7.12.2011

Edible, adj.:  Good to eat, and wholesome to digest, as a worm to a toad, a toad to a snake, a snake to a pig, a pig to a man, and a man to a worm.  ~Ambrose Bierce My new mantra for the kitchen.

Day 186 – 7.5.2011

Having just finished reading The Vegetarian Myth, I've been inspired to make use of more local and sustainable foods. I feel it's a responsibility everyone should take if access is readily available. Living in Central Virginia really does allow me to be more involved in the food that I consume. That's why I loved going […]

Whole30 Reflections

It’s been over a week since I completed the Whole30 challenge and these were mere observations and experiences from my point of view (because well, it’s my blog). Apparently, I thrive in a structured environment and if I put my mind to something, I can achieve it. Good to know! My taste buds have definitely […]

Days 174 – 178, 6.23.2011-6.27.2011

Phew! It's been a busy week! I completed my Whole30 (reflections to come!), we painted our revamped our apartment with Chris' parents, met up with my parents in Northern VA, had a great weekend, and now back to normal life! Let's review, shall we? 6.23.2011 - With Chris' parents in town and arriving late at […]

Day 168 – 6.17.2011

It's been a day of culinary adventures. I woke up and instantly knew what I wanted for breakfast - E.A.T. salad rolls. May I present to you my own little culinary piece of art. The E.A.T salad (egg, avocado, tomato) wrapped in some high quality prosciutto. I'm telling you, I'm brilliant. These are going on […]

Day 164 – 6.13.2011

One of the responsibilities of the Whole30 nutrition challenge is knowing exactly what goes into your food. This practically eliminates being able to eat at restaurants. Even at the restaurant I work in, I can only eat the steamed broccoli and the baked sweet potatoes because all other veggies are either cooked with corn/vegetable/canola oil […]

Day 157 – 6.6.2011

It is Day 15 for my Whole 30 Challenge and here's what has happened so far.. I'm sleeping like a rock My pants feel a bit looser (but just a little bit) My cravings for chocolate have been replaced with cravings for sweet potatoes I've prepared every single meal I've consumed for the past two […]
