One of my coworkers walked past my desk today with two boxes on her way to the lunch room. "There's pie," she said as she passed by. Pumpkin and apple. I have no idea what it was for but it looked delicious. And then our conference rooms were overbooked and not appropriately scheduled which meant … Continue reading Holiday Treats Come Early
Life has been a little hectic lately. In the last 7 weeks or so, I have worked in inordinate amount of overtime. Do you still call it overtime when you're a salaried employee? Not just a few late nights here and there or a few early meetings but multiple days' worth of time. Leading up to our … Continue reading Life has been a little hectic lately.
Today is my 30th day of Whole30! I cannot believe the last 30 days have gone by so quickly. In the last 30 days, I have gone without added sugars, dairy, legumes, alcohol, or grains. I'd love to boast a perfect record but I discovered some missteps along the way, mainly after I had already … Continue reading Whole30: Day 30
I am less than ten days away from completing the Whole30 program and I've got to say, I'm nervous. I'm nervous because I love it and have done so well with this program. There's something so simple about drawing hard lines about what you will and won't put into your body. I started this particular "Year of … Continue reading Whole30 Update: Day 21

Or at least continue to find interest writing about it. I imagine it's the same for reading so I'm going to start condensing the last … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 25-28
I missed a day. My husband was traveling and due to a communication error, I planned to walk after he got home at what I thought would be 8:00pm. He got home around 9:30 or so - after the sun had set. I live in a great neighborhood but we don't have street lights or … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 18
I have no idea whether it's Day 2 of Whole30 or the mom who came in behind me this week at daycare simultaneously dripping and sniffing snot, but I am feeling whooped today. The weather isn't helping matters either. "Unseasonably warm" would not paint a clear enough picture for you. It's HOT. We're desperately running … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 17
A family walk complete with carried tricycle. I carried. And Day 1 of Whole30. A success.
I'm playing catch up after this amazing weekend! Tonight's mile was a run/walk to get back in time to tuck my sweet babe into bed. It was preceded by a mother's day brunch surrounded by my husband, father, brother-in-law, and three of the most important mothers in my life: my mother, mother-in-law, and sister. My … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 14
