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
Well, I finished my self-imposed challenge of a Mile a Day for 30 days. In the end, I ended up one mile short. I thought about adding a day to the challenge but since it was my made up challenge, it seemed like a pretty lackluster way to make myself feel better about skipping. So … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Days 29 and 30
I always say that anyone can do anything* for 30 days but 30 days really is a long time to do the same thing and continue finding interest in it. 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
Winston and I meandered through the neighborhood, switching up our usual route. It was a slow walk but enough to count.
I'm tired of this mile. I feel worn out today so I came home and put on sweatpants and a baggy long sleeved t-shirt from my high school days. But Winston and I did get in our mile. Disheveled clothes and all.
She rode her bicycle while Freddy, Winston, and I walked. She pedaled hard. She almost made the turn from road to sidewalk this time. She only needed a little push. Halfway through the ride, she stopped. "I need to climb this wall," she said. She hopped off her little bike and scaled the retainer wall … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 22
"Can you help me so I don't go too fast?" My daughter and I took today's mile with her on her bicycle and me on foot. Each decent, she asked me to slow her down if her bike started to move too quickly. She didn't panic. One time she even braked on her own without … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 21
A split mile. Some on bike with my beautiful and ever-surprisingly-capable three year old daughter (Do you ever stop feeling amazed at what your child can accomplish?) who got a big girl bike with training wheels today! And some with my trusty mutt, Winston. I adore this cautious and courageous child. She is a lion … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 20
Day 19 was exhilarating. I took my new bike on a 3 mile round trip, down a hill onto a bike path, up a hill, down a hill, and back home. It was raining but ever so slightly, more of a mist. It was cool at the fast speed but pleasant. My hands were chilled … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 19
