#Fail?

After 3 weeks of the Whole30, I’ve made a few observations. 1. I feel and look the same. 2. It’s mostly not that hard except for no alcohol or fun fall-y Starbucks lattes I love. 3. It’s impossible to follow at “said French liquor restaurant and liquor bar” in Chicago. 4. It’s just not working … Continue reading

Long Day, Quick Update

Day 4 of Whole30 completed. But I almost stalked the pizza guy when I got home from work at 7:30 tonight, and some unhealthy hooligan/neighbor had ordered pizza.

It is a deli/bakery up front and a florist shop in the back. I had a Build-My-Own 1/2 Roast Beef Sandwich and 1/2 Salad … Continue reading
