Three Things

I've got a few things on my mind and none of them fit together. So this isn't going to be a neat and tidy little blog post with one coherent thought. No, there will be several coherent thoughts. First things first... I quit the Whole30. I know. I'm a quitter. How can I show my … Continue reading Three Things


A Week Before 39

My birthday is a week away. I’ll be 39 years old. What’s there to say about turning 39? I remember when I was about to turn 29. I claimed that it was the last birthday I would have. Not because I thought I would die at 29, but because I was pretty sure I didn’t … Continue reading A Week Before 39

So… I’m Doing the Whole30 Again…

Alternatively, this post could have been titled “Of All the Decisions I’ve Ever Made in My Life More Than Once, I Question This the Most” or “Why I Clearly Still Hate Myself and Everything I Stand For.” Some of you may remember that, two years ago, I decided to join in with some friends who … Continue reading So… I’m Doing the Whole30 Again…

Some Kind of Shape

Kids... I need to get in shape. I know, round is, technically, a shape. But I need to get into some other kind of shape. The kind that will allow me to comfortably button up all those button up shirts I tend to wear unbuttoned. The kind that will allow me to walk from one … Continue reading Some Kind of Shape

The Single Guy vs. Convenience

There's a gas station/convenience store near where I live. I'm sure it's convenient for a lot of people, but it's super convenient for me because it's on my way to work. Back in my pre-Whole30 days, I would often stop there in the mornings to pick up my version of caffeine, a Coke or Mountain … Continue reading The Single Guy vs. Convenience

What I Learned from Whole30

First of all, I think I'm well within my rights and privileges as a human being to stop and take a sigh of relief at having completed such an ordeal. *sigh* *relief* Okay, let's continue. Y'all, 30 days ago, I somehow got roped into participating in the Whole30 with a group of coworkers and friends. … Continue reading What I Learned from Whole30

One Day More – An End to Whole30

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I decided to alter the lyrics to "One Day More" from Les Misérables. It gets confusing toward the end with all the overlapping. But I felt like ending Whole30 with a musical number. So here it is... VALJEAN One day more… Another day another destiny This never-ending road to Calvary … Continue reading One Day More – An End to Whole30

10 Foods I’ve Missed on Whole30

Kids, in less that one week, I will be finished with the 30 days required for the Whole30. I'm gonna kick this thing in the teeth. There have been so many things I've missed about my regular diet. I don't think I'm capable of listing all of the foods that have crossed my mind in … Continue reading 10 Foods I’ve Missed on Whole30

Whole30 Update: Day Nineteen

It occurred to me that the last time I wrote about being on Whole30, I was one mild annoyance away from a homicidal rampage. Y'all, it's gotten a lot better. I didn't kill anything or anyone. I didn't even go so far as to punch a pillow. Maybe I punched a pillow. I don't know. … Continue reading Whole30 Update: Day Nineteen
