Cheers!  Today marks two week into my Whole30.  Yes, I am still rocking and rolling along.  I stopped the everyday updates.  The days started running together and there wasn’t much to update daily.  So here I am.  I do have a few tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make things go a bit more smooth during this journey.

day six | lazy days

 week one: day six| Journey for JessiNot much to report on day six of the paleo Whole30 challenge.  It was a rainy day my last day here in Houston.  I mainly was a couch potato I have to admit.  I didn’t even get my steps in for the day until I hit up the treadmill an hour and a half ago.  I mainly just snacked on veggies, fruit, nuts, and meat all day until dinner.   Continue reading

day two | take me out & take out

paleo challenge: day two | Journey for JessiMy day two of paleo challenge was one that tested my willpower and dining out tact.  I began by having breakfast at my brother and wife’s place: scrambled eggs with homemade salsa, turkey bacon, and a cutie.  I took a rest day today in terms of training because my back has been on fire lately.  I blame improper daily recovery and being a bit too sedentary… Continue reading

home sweet texas

home sweet texas--Journey for JessiI took my last final Friday morning.  After a grueling week of being held up in the library and stressing, it was so nice to finally be finished!  Now all that was left was packing and waking up at 3:30 am Saturday morning to catch my flight.  All that was standing between me and Texas was the dreaded packing… oh, how I despise packing…  Continue reading

refresh

refresh--Journey for JessiWhat have I been up to?  Well, other than the new fresh-faced blog appearance (let me know what you think in the comments), I have been bounding all over the place in my studies, life, and even changes in my environment.  I feel like I am already trying to get a fresh start on the New Year fast approaching.  For now, I will focus more on getting things caught up before I reveal my New Year’s resolutions in the making, which, should be revealed not a day sooner than New Year’s Day.  Instead, here is a refresher of the new things occurring in my life.
