February 2017 Goals


Happy February! I can’t believe how fast January flew by (but, then again, I say that about every single month!). Although I didn’t have quite the strong start for my goals that I would have liked, in so many ways, 2017 is already kicking 2016’s butt. Overall, I feel happier and just in a better […]

Whole30 Update: Week 3


With just about a week left in my Whole30 challenge, the end is in sight! So, let’s talk about week 3! Previous posts: I’m Doing the Vegetarian Whole 30, Week 1, and Week 2 What I Ate As dairy is not allowed on Whole30, this challenge seemed like the perfect time to transition to a vegan diet. […]

2017 Workouts, Week 4


Confession: last week was exceptionally unremarkable. I worked out one time. Yes, that right. One time. It wasn’t for lack of want, but sheer lack of energy.

2017 Workouts, Week 3


I struggled two weeks ago with a notable lack of energy from Whole30. Fortunately, last week was an improvement!

Whole30 Update: Week 1


I survived the first week of Whole30! Earlier this month, I wrote about the whats and whys of vegetarian Whole30. What I ate Going into the challenge, I knew from many people that meal planning and food prep is crucial to succeeding. I’ve tried meal planning in the past, but it’s never really worked for […]

2017 Workouts, Week 2


I’m just going to cut to the chase. It was a rough week, largely in part due to Whole 30. I’ll get deeper into that in tomorrow’s post, but the majority of the week, I felt completely miserable. I had anywhere from a dull headache to a migraine, and was completely exhausted (the three night […]
