So day 3 is over and I’m still going strong. It appears my exercise is suffering, however. From my FitnessPal tracker: Mic drop.
Wait for it… …aaaaand there it is. Still in Whole30 Day 1. Hit-a-wall tired and headache. It’s going to be a long week. I would give anything to smash my face into a cake right now. So, I give you the best type of distraction – dream travel. You already know how I feel about the… Continue reading Cake and Morocco.
So, it’s Day One of my Whole30 lifestyle change and yes, I’m starving. Sugar is the devil. So I am channeling my craving into a home renovation inspiration scrapbook which I shall call “Sugar Renovations.” Why? Because I am not yet hangry. Thank you to Traditional Home for the inspiration.

They get me! They really, really get me! HAHA I realize… Continue reading Movies Starring Meg Ryan.

I love New Year’s Day. I am a huge fan of a blank canvas (because it is all mind over matter, right?) I am not usually one to make resolutions but this year I need to make some changes. I will share a few, so I can be held accountable by my coach (Stacy): Throw… Continue reading New Year = Clean Slate
