    4/26/2017 10:22:39 AM, by JENSTRESS

    I'm close enough to the end of Whole 30 where I feel I can really sum up how it went. Now the scale and etc will be a different story, we aren't supposed to weigh ourselves, and I don't want to get discouraged this close to the end, and honestly, aren't the non scale victories the ones that really ...

    4/25/2017 2:48:57 PM, by JENSTRESS

    It is April 25th, I've been doing Whole 30 for 25 days. And I feel GREAT. I don't miss anything that I'm not supposed to have. NOTHING. I mean I do love cheese, and I miss having the convenience of certain things, but I discovered I really could live without ANY of the things we aren't supposed ... Read more

    Yesterday I got to spend Earth Day with the wolves. It was fantastic! The only downside was I ate poorly. Today I slept late. It feels like I'm fighting off something. Next Monday I have my annual industry event. I'm way heavier than I had hoped to be by this point so it's time to use clothing camo... Read more

    I'm kind of stunned. 9 days left of this radically different way of eating. It has flown by. Am I getting results? How do I feel? What is going on? Well, yes, good, everything. First question, am I getting results? YES. NO, I don't know exactly what kind. Why? Because during t... Read more

    Wow. I was doing whole 30 at Easter. Doesn't seem like a big deal? Well, add into that in-laws that apparently could give two hoots about their own health, let alone yours and your "diet". THERE WAS NO FOOD FOR ME TO EAT. I did bring my own, but even my husband was like, "My mom said s... Read more

    Set a goal to get my steps in today, Sunday, since I never do on the weekend. And I met that goal. I went over in calories both Saturday and today but I may have done enough gardening to pay back some. But I'm going to work harder on my self control when it comes to portion sizes. ... Read more

    Happy Easter. Had a delicious dinner with the in-laws. It was al fresco on the porch. Their house is across the street from the lake so it was comfortable if windy. I ate fairly well but the tiramisu undid me. Not only was it over my calorie limit but it screwed up my Passover meals. Oh well, you ... Read more

First, I loaned my car to my brother on Thursday and he got it into a wreck. And the rental companies are booked up due to a holiday, so I can't get the rental until Monday. I l... Read more

    It was a good day. I got in a good chair workout, a good walk and ate reasonably well. I saw an add for the Abdoer360. It looks good but I wonder if it works. I'm thinking of getting it for the 30 day trial. It could help get me back into shape and maybe my husband can try it too. I'm getting desp... Read more

    I'm sore in a good way after yesterday's walk. I really pushed myself beyond my comfort zone. Today concentrating more on core and upper body. I'm kinda glad Passover is nearly done.
