I cannot believe this is still happening! Anyone tired of this dang posts? Don’t answer that. I’m tired of myself at this point. Another hurdle yesterday! I had a rare out-of-town gig with my lovely trio (shout-out to the amazing director, who works hard to get us gigs in this difficult market called the Midwest!) We always stop after the performance and get something really … Continue reading Day 18 & 19.
Trudging through these days. That‘s a word, right? Trudging? I am really struggling this week. My beloved coffee has been ripped away from me. I‘m trying to heal my digestion and this is the next step, along with all the other things I‘ve eliminated. This is rough. And so not fair. And what‘s even funnier is ~ it really doesn‘t have anything to do with … Continue reading Day 15 & 16.
I feel like this is a milestone day! Two weeks we’ve been on this plan, and we haven’t slipped up once! I’m SHOCKED. No one is more shocked than I am. We have passed a few difficult tests, kind of like the Fire Swamp in The Princess Bride? Except our Rodents of Unusual Size are cocktail parties and Wednesday night church choir wine breaks. HA! … Continue reading Day 14!!!
Day 12 is coming to a close. 12 days? That’s almost two weeks! I’m already plotting and scheming ~ “What am I going to eat when I’m off of this plan? Is everything going to fall apart? I don’t want to lose this feeling!” I’m sitting in the lobby of the Westin Crown Center, in Kansas City, which is where we have our gym. The … Continue reading Day 12.
These are the hardest days, apparently. That’s what the book says, and it’s also what a good friend of mine says as well. She said she was super down on Day 11. Well, here we are at Day 11, and I’m ready to fight through! This post is a little longer than normal. I might need to use you all as my therapist throughout these … Continue reading Day 10 & 11.
Tomorrow marks a week! YAHOO! How is everyone doing? I just have a few things to report today: I feel like a kid. Kid-like energy, kid-like excitement for things, kid-like hunger, like how much I cannot WAIT for dinner. Apparently, my breath stinks. The hub let me know. It’s either all the salads I’m eating, or maybe it’s that Keto thing where your mouth feels … Continue reading Day 6.
This has been the hardest of the 5 days. I’m so cranky, so angry, so frustrated. I want to kill all the things. I have serious road rage. I have yelled at the hub, and the hub has barked back (which he never does). And I hear the hardest days are yet to come ~ yikes! But for me, the weekends are always going to … Continue reading Day 5.
Okay today was tough. In lots of ways. First of all, it’s Saturday, and the hub and I love to go do really fun things in our neighborhood. There’s Brioche ~ fresh, warm pain au chocolat and a cappuccino to start your day off right. Then there’s Cafe Europa, Ollie’s, even the local watering hole is within walking distance, and has the best pizza … Continue reading Day 4.
Day 3 is coming to a close, and I am beat, boys and girls! I’ve made a lot of food in the last two days. Now it’s all in the fridge, or freezer, and some of it is in my belly. Here’s what I made for this week ~ I’ll post full recipes tomorrow morning. Too tired today. HOMEMADE VEGAN PHO BROTH. SAY WHAT??? HOMEMADE … Continue reading Day 3.
Before I start blabbing, I want you all to know that I changed the settings on my blog, so you can now comment without putting your e-mail address in. I think it posts without me even moderating it. Not sure exactly, but please feel free to make constructive comments and share great things with us all ~ even anonymously if you like! It’s 11:30AM and … Continue reading Day 2: Reset Journal.
