Training a Little Out of Focus

I signed up for the Lincoln Half Marathon, which I ran last year and was a lot of fun. And honestly, it's a great way to get into the fall marathon spirit. It's in May, so there is only a slight gap between training cycles. I realized, while thinking about my training for that, that I've … Continue reading Training a Little Out of Focus


A new year, a new Whole 30

In the spirit of resets (and after the ENORMOUS amount of cream cheese brownies I made on NYE) it's time for a new Whole 30. This will be my third round, though I'll be stopping it a smidge early, on January 26 instead of January 31, due to a family vacation.   So what are the … Continue reading A new year, a new Whole 30

Cold Nights. Hot Curry.

I've always loved Thai food, but never really knew how to make. Whole30 changed a lot of that for me, and one of the recipes that really has become a staple is red curry with chicken.

#Whole30 Week 1 In the Books

First week is in the books. And I have to say - it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I ate relatively healthy, prior to embarking on this endeavor.

Day 4 of Whole30: This Feels Almost Too Easy

I'm a little bit into the morning of Day 4. I expected to feel...worse. The Whole30 team does a great job of prepping you for what to expect, so I was bracing myself for a few days of detoxing from the vast amounts of sugar and carbs I consumed on family vacation. And truly, I felt … Continue reading Day 4 of Whole30: This Feels Almost Too Easy


Whole30: Day 1

This is it. Over the past week, I've scoured the internet, hoarding recipes, reading and re-reading Food Matters, The Whole30, and my two new favorite food blogs, Nom Nom Paleo and Well Fed (my copy of the Well Fed cookbook arrived this past Saturday!). I've highlighted tips, planned my meals, made an exhaustive grocery list. Sunday was … Continue reading Whole30: Day 1



2015 was a crazy, wonderful, hectic, and busy year. I got married, bought a house, bought a car, did some traveling and overall just relaxed into married life, and my job, and what to do moving forward now that we weren't saving for a wedding or a house, now that we didn't have major changes … Continue reading Goals.
