Whole 30: Week 4

Today marks the last day of my Whole30 run and tomorrow begins the Reintroduction Phase!    I am as nervous as I am excited about reintroductions.

Honeymoon: Day 4

SCOTLAND    The next full day in Scotland I woke up feeling better – which was an extreme good thing because we were scheduled for a 12-HOUR tour into the Highlands and to see the Loch Less.

Honeymoon: Day 2

LONDON, cont. After waking up and barely checking out in time, we took off sight-seeing around London, completely thankful that our London hotel was kind enough to hold our luggage throughout the day. Our plane for Scotland didn’t leave until around 8pm so we had the majority of the day to fill. We did everything […]

Whole 30: The Beginning

Here I go again… Cue the 80s music, I’m starting another diet. Well, this one isn’t a diet at its heart, it’s more of a reboot/reinvention of my relationship with food. Starting Monday (tomorrow), I will embark on a 30-Day venture, where I will not allow myself to have ANY: alcohol, sugars (real or artificial), […]

Home

I moved into our Austin home over a month ago, but this past weekend was the first time I got that “this feels like home” feeling. First, our move was a quick and somewhat stressful one. We knew that we had our honeymoon planned for the beginning of April and we needed to be out […]
