It seems the last time we did the Whole30 was maybe five years ago. I remember it well, very well. The last time we did it, Blue Eyes was hospitalized on Day 27. Funny, not funny. I also did learn a few things about myself after blood work. Although my blood sugars go down (a … Continue reading Back to the Whole30, again
Accountability Report: let’s regroup
"Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breath, and start again." Ritu Ghatourey Yesterday would have been Day 30 of the Whole30 Program, IF we had stuck to it for thirty days.

I happened upon one of … Continue reading Accountability Report. Week Two
Accountability Report. Week One.
One week and one day ago, I posted about my health. I was experiencing some anxiety, chest tightness, indigestion, back pain, high blood sugars, and uncontrolled hypertension.

I am in need of some moral support. My health is failing. I am 51 years old. I have a doctor's appointment scheduled for Monday. I have been overweight to some degree or another, most of my life since adolescence. I started my first diet at 14 years old. I had an emergency appendectomy at … Continue reading Can anyone relate?
