Whole30: Day 2

Okay.  Today isn't so great.  I'm tired.  I'm cranky.  I'm not feeling very energetic.

I know this is normal.  I read the book and this is probably what they call "the hangover" period. 

Thankfully, I didn't go crazy eating all the forbidden foods the day before I started this plan  

I'm drinking more water so I have to pee.  All. The. Time.  It's annoying but it's not the worst thing in the world.  I envision that my body is shedding all the toxic stuff I'd been eating and drinking before.  I'm certain this feeling will pass.

Not going to lie, I wanted to have a cocktail with dinner.  That was tough, but I survived.  I made shrimp and broccoli with garlic and ghee.  It was very good.  

Lunch was great, too.  I made charred steak and onion salad.  Delicious.  I'm really having fun in the kitchen but I'm not loving all the prep work and dishes I have to do every day.  Sometimes I'm washing dishes twice a day.  My nails have never looked better, though.

I'm hoping tomorrow is not has exhausting as today.

My Least Favorite Exercises....(But They Work!)

I've been working out consistently again.  This week I've hit the gym four days and I committed to five.  Tomorrow's Total Body session at Forever Fit will meet that goal.

Yesterday was Leg Day and we did so many squats and lunges that my body is still aching today.  I'm loving the burn, baby!

As I was thinking about ways to amp up my workout routines, I started a running list in my head of my least favorite exercises.  I always cringe when I have to do these, but the truth is, they work.  
Wall sit Stand with your back against a wall and bend your knees to about a 90-degree angle. Hold this stance, with abs tight, for up to a minute. Repeat.  Want more of a challenge?  Hold a medicine ball in your lap while you "sit." (Or, hold a glass of wine in each hand. Kidding.  Maybe.)
Triceps Dips Start by sitting on a sturdy chair. Slide off the edge of the seat and support your weight with your hands. Bend your elbows to slowly lower your body toward the floor and the…

Favorite Things: Planners and More

For the last four days, I've had no idea what day it is.  This always happens to me when Christmas is in the middle of the week.  Thursday felt like Monday, today feels like Sunday.  I'm all screwed up.  More than usual. Ha.

I did look at the calendar today and it hit me that New Year's Eve is three days away.  I love this time of year.  My favorite part of a new year is getting a fresh start on everything.  And because I'm a total geek, I get super excited about buying a new planner and writing all of the things in it.  It's just so much fun for me!  There's something about those crisp, new, blank pages that thrills me.  
Yes, I know I need to get a life.
This year I've added a new planner into my rotation of things to help me stay organized.  Y'all know I love the Commit30 planners and I sing their praises, but I recently discovered Habit Nest and fell in love!
Over the last year, I was very consistent in waking up at 5 a.m., heading to the gym and ge…
