Day 27

I have now been on four different grocery store trips in the past twenty four hours…I cannot wait until my grocery shopping returns to once a month and six or seven McDonalds runs in-between… jokes. Meg is glaring at me as I type that. But realistically, one grocery store a week is something that I’m…

Day 26

Between not being hungover on the weekends or being able to enjoy the usual activities a twenty-something does i.e. bars, breweries, distilleries; my weekends have turned into forty -eight hours of errands. [Meg stopped me here to inform you all that yes, we do other things such as get lunch, make food, and we went…

Day 25

Parties on the Whole 30 are a blast. You get to show up, hang out with a bunch of your friends and watch them consume alcohol and snacks while you sip away on the Lacroix you brought and munch on a Larabar when the cravings become to much. But in all seriousness, I really did…

Day 24

Do you know what’s Whole 30 compliant at a Timberwolves game? Nothing. You heard it here first, Whole 30 really sucks when you and your bro just want to go out, grab a few beers and go to the game and scarf down $45 of stadium food. On the plus side, you do save a…

Day 23

IT WAS THE BACON!!! Turns out this bacon that Meg got that she thought was Whole 30 compliant was definitely not compliant, apparently that shit was loaded with sugar. So, eating five or six strips for brunch on Sunday didn’t help my cause… oops, life goes on. It’s pretty crazy though that just a few…

Day 22

Ah Tuesday. And just like that my energy levels returned and productivity soared. It felt good to have all this energy back in my life. The evils of yesterday have dissipated and I was ready to concur the day! Carpe that Diem!! Arrival to the office was met with the usual barrage of emails and…

Day 21

I. Am. Over. Whole. 30… To quote the “Friends” today I was definitely stuck in second gear. A bad case of the Mondays.  All day I was just completely out of it; no motivation, no energy. After arriving in the office shortly before nine I tried to get some work done and putzed around at…

Day 20

So, here we are folks, two thirds of the way done with the Whole 30. Ten pounds lighter, a lot more energy, and a plethora of knowledge acquired about how to cook healthier for myself once this is all over. Has it been worth giving up alcohol and cheese for twenty days? Jury is still…

Day 19

Brunch, out in public. Meg assured me that the bomb-ass build your own omelet bar we we’re going to in Richfield would be Whole 30 compliant, and I was stoked; only to find out when we arrived at 11:30 they stopped serving brunch foods at 11AM on Saturdays…. I despise the suburbs. Couple quick decisions…

Day 18

So we made it to Friday! Another week at work done, another week on the Whole 30 in the bag. The bagels and cream cheese sitting out in the break area at work this morning didn’t even tempt me! It’s almost scary who I’ve become… I sailed through my six and a half hour work…

Day 15-17

According to the most recent Five Thirty Eight polling numbers 14.7 million U.S. households read this blog weekly. To you, my readership, I’m deeply sorry for my lack of blogging over the past week. All I can say is that the Whole 30 lifestyle has become quite routine. Banana and breakfast bake in the morning,…

Day 14

Somehow in the process of editing this post the text all disappeared and I don’t know how to get it back, and I’m too lazy right now to re-type this…. Two weeks done!
