Whole30 – Day 14, and a recap of 11 – 13 – All of them Really good eating!

So, I’ve found I can’t necessarily stay on top of Janathon posts AND Whole30 posts, so my whole 30 updates haven’t been as regular as they should be.  That doesn’t mean they aren’t coming! Looking at day 13 – Breakfast

Whole 30, Day 5 – First day of Whole 30 on the run, and Whole 30 info for Athletes!

Running for cake

BIRTHDAYS!!!!!!  Always a fun, fun time… Joy, Presents, Cake and… Calories! So, with that in mind, I planned ahead (how uncharacteristic of me!)  and got a run in before dinner.  Not far, as there was a time constraint – but

#Juneathon Day Something or Another – The Treadmill and Bowflex

So, upon the suggestion of a fellow blogger (thanks Bopspeed!) , I made Ratatouille for dinner last night! I looked at a couple of different recipes online, and went from them.  I have to say, it was incredibly tasty!  I
