What a difference a year makes…

Sometimes I have trouble seeing the difference in people’s before and afters when it’s not 50+ pounds….so some people might say eh….but comparing Shamrock 2013 to Shamrock 2014, I can see a major difference. Thank you Whole 30 for leading me to a Paleo lifestyle, even though I hate you sometimes for ruining my love affair […]

Excuse Me While I Humble Brag Part 2

I can go on a freakin Jenny Craig commercial now. And I have even less of a butt, as if that was possible. It’s been 90 days since I started Whole 30 and I’ve stuck to a mostly paleo diet since it ended. I don’t think I could have ever stuck to a paleo diet […]

Whole 30 Recap Days 8-14

Remember in Elementary School when March was always described as “In like a lion, out like a lamb”?? That pretty much sums up week 2. The first part was hell and the last part was Spring Break. Days 8-10: I was a tired, pathetic mess. I had to stop 3 times during Monday’s 5 mile […]

Whole 30 Recap Days 1-7

Since I’m taking a break from marathon maniac status, I decided now is a good time to make some changes to my diet. Well, “changes” is an understatement since the plan I chose would ask me to eliminate almost everything I love. Whole9’s original program designed to change your life in 30 days. Think of […]
