Whole30: Day 30 – Looking back while moving forward.

Whole30: Day 30 - Looking back while moving forward.

I am now two weeks out of my Whole30 and have spent the last hour reading through each of the posts I wrote. From my first post where I wrote, “Heaven help me; it has begun” to likening the Whole30 to “the period of transition before giving birth”, I think it is fairly obvious that I was not entirely gung-ho about the idea. What I knew is that I did not want to stay where I was emotionally, mentally or physically. I wanted to make a life change that would stick.

Detox

Day three was my absolute worst. My body was in “full-on, mad-dog detox mode, and I was both figuratively and literally praying for the Whole30 promise that, ‘This, too, shall pass.’” That day proved to be both a physical and mental battle as I spent it rolled up in a ball with a heating pad while nursing my underlying anger.

Whole30: Day 17 – Thou shalt not covet thine neighbor’s zoodle maker.

Whole30: Day 17 - Thou shalt not covet thine neighbor's zoodle maker.

Funny for the day: I’ve written before about using Grammarly’s online grammar checker to write my posts. Well, today while writing this one, it wanted to replace “zoodle” with “poodle”, which would have made my title, “Though shalt not covet thine neighbor’s poodle maker.”

Now, I know Paleo is all about protein, but that’s taking

Homeschooling is selfish; I agree.

Jeff and I made the decision to homeschool when our oldest, Emelie, was in Second Grade. Previous to that decision, we never considered homeschooling our kids; not once.
