My Whole30: the results!

In Fitness, Personal

Never mind my food, my lifting and whether or not I carry on this crazy lifestyle change, I know this is the bit you’ve all been waiting for. Have I actually lost any weight or fat? To refresh your memory, my measurements at the start… read full entry →

Whole 30 Log – week 4 (and a bit)

In Fitness, Updates

Day 22 – 22nd Feb: Made more of an effort to eat well today as Sundays are normally so manic I only eat one meal. Also got some fresh air and light exercise tromping round the woods in Ironbridge with the kids. Still feel fairly… read full entry →

My #whole30 journey

In Fitness, Personal

Unless something happens in the next few days, I’m on track for completing my first whole30. Notice the word first in there? Yeah, that’s because I’d consider doing this again. So what’s the deal? I thought you were fed up with it! I have been… read full entry →

Whole 30 Log – week 3

In Fitness, Updates

Day 15 – 15th Feb: Normal Sunday: in other words, mad rush to pick up the kids, no time to sit down and eat til late. I did manage to grab a couple of hardboiled eggs and some chicken around 2pm but basically didn’t eat… read full entry →

Whole 30 Log – week 2

In Fitness, Updates

Day 8 – 8th Feb: Slept well, late morning lie in (even though I was supposed to be picking the kids up, oops!) Running around after the kids/doing chores all day so didn’t get chance to eat – this is fairly par for the course… read full entry →

Whole30 Log – Week 1

In Fitness, Updates

Day 1 – 1st Feb: Spent much of the day preparing food for the week. Quiche-type thing (no crust) for breakfasts, homemade mayo for my coleslaw, etc. Moods have been fine for about a week but I think that’s because I’ve been seeing my counsellor… read full entry →

Failed on the first day!

In Personal

Guess who failed Whole30 on the first day? It started well enough… fried eggs and garlic mushrooms for breakfast, no coffee. However, it turns out that a getting a Whole30 compliant lunch in a chain pub is virtually impossible, and even worse than that is… read full entry →

Last Day of Freedom!

In Personal

Today marks the last day of my nutritional freedom. I celebrated last night by eating a 2 course meal (extravagant) that was, ironically, whole30 compliant until I chucked a knob of butter on the veggies and washed it all down with a glass of wine.… read full entry →

A Clean Slate?

In Personal, WTF

I’ve had a potentially absurd idea. I can’t remember what inspired it, but I’m pretty sure that I’m going to go ahead with it. I’ve decided that if I’m going to “fix” whatever is wrong with my mental health at the moment, that the best… read full entry →

In which I admit failure

In Updates

I failed another Sugar-Free September. It’s not my fault, honest. The biscuit spread leapt out of the jar into my mouth. The jelly beans tempted me with their sweet, sweet goodness. The cocktails proved too much for my willpower. Oh well, maybe next year :/

SFS: “So you’ve had no sugar AT ALL this week?”

In Personal, Updates

Gaz asked me the other night “so you’ve had no sugar AT ALL this week?” And I said “well yes, I’ve had a banana, and they contain fructose” And after some further discussion he went on to ask with a raised eyebrow, “who made up… read full entry →

Quick Update

Izz’s first day of school went fine :) the highlight of her day was apparently the chocolate pudding she had after lunch I’m on day 3 of Sugar Free September 2014 and apart from some odd cravings on the 1st, which I think were hormone-driven,… read full entry →
