Because. Pizza. 

One thing I absolutely LOVE in life is pizza. I could eat it for every meal.

This is the one thing during my whole30’s that I just miss! 

So tonight means pizza is happening. I need to start eating less crap before I start this round so my detox isn’t so hard, but I just can’t resist tonight. 

Do you think I could eat an entire large? Lol. 

I am getting so excited to start this round, the planning and preparing is amping me up!!! I’m thinking after this round I’ll be entirely gluten free so I need some TRUELY good gluten free pizza crust recipes please!!!

But until then, tonight means pizza. 



Until next time,

Meal Prep to Another Level

So the past 3 whole 30’s I’ve done I just meal prepped here and there, mostly the same recipes I know and love.

This time I am approaching it totally different. I plan on making a new dinner recipe every night from my trusty Nom Nom Paleo cookbook. Lunches and breakfast will be prepped every Tuesday!

I’m excited to try different recipes! Sometimes paleo can seem “boring” or “bland” but I think this who’ll truly open my eyes to eating this way all the time!

Does anyone have any additional tips on how meal prep??

Until next time!!

Help I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up!!

I’ve fallen off the wagon. The health wagon!

I have been SO busy lately… that plus the social life I’ve been enjoying (with WAY too much fried food), has caused me to slip into old habits.

Yes those are excuses. I’ve taken the easy route to life, folded to the unhealthy foods that tempt me.

Now I’m ready. I know I’ve said that before but this is real life. I cannot let my pants get tight. I am in a size 16 (not just old navy sizes either haha) pants…and I started at a size 24.

I can do it. I just need the support and motivation.

March 1st means whole 30 round 4. An entire month where I have no holidays to celebrate, no birthdays to attend, no reason not to be on track.

I got this! Hubby is on board too!

Who is with me!!!!!

32 More to Go

I took a little break from the paleo diet for a couple weeks and have regretted it! My family also got the virus going around so I haven’t even been able to get to the gym in a couple weeks.

I’ve decided that tomorrow is back at this. I have 32 more pounds to get to my ultimate goal. I’ve signed up for a fit challenge at my gym, I’ve meal planned for the next couple of weeks, and I’ve decided my reward for hitting goal will be a “I Am Whole 30” tee shirt.

Does this mean another round of whole30 is in the works? You bet!

For those of you following my journey, you can see that I’m not 100% strict all the time. I think it’s important to enjoy a candy bar here and there if that’s what you crave. I’m all about the balance needed in life, because if you cannot find a balance, you are setting yourself up for failure.

I’m hoping my next round will be more of a transition into eating paleo for good. I can definitely tell when my body is over indulging crap and just feels like poop. I still will enjoy a Snickers sometimes, or some garlic bread with dinner, but this is my time to embrace my fitness and health goals and hit the goal I’m so close to hitting.

These last few pounds will be the hardest, but I’m up for the challenge. Who’s with me?!
