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.

Need a quick, easy and healthy breakfast or snack idea?

Jump on the avocado toast train.

I just toasted two pieces of my favorite gluten-free bread, mashed half an avocado and spread it on the toast, and finished it all off with some red pepper flakes and Trader Joe’s Everything-but-the-Bagel Sesame seasoning.

week one: day four | Journey for Jessi

Today, I am thankful for NOT having a headache, bloating, or stomach troubles!  Day four had definitely been the easiest yet!  I think I am getting use to my mornings without coffee and I am not craving sugar and cereals like the previous days. I have to say, I think it helped quite a bit that I stayed busy and active all day. Continue reading

austin adventures

austin adventures || Journey for JessiThis weekend, my sister and I headed up to Austin to celebrate my future sister-in-law’s bachelorette party and festivities.  It was so much fun and we were lucky to have nice weather.  If you have not heard, Houston has been flooding pretty badly and pretty much all of Texas has been hit with some serious storms.  Pretty much everything we did centered around the outdoors like grilling and playing games on the patio, going to various wineries and BBQ for lunch, to walking around 6th Street bar hopping the night away.  It was great meeting all of the friends and family that I get to see again come July for the wedding–I can’t wait!

trader joe’s in foco

trader joe's in foco || Journey for JessiIt was a pretty exciting day yesterday.  I have a thing with grocery stores.  I absolutely love them.  Grocery shopping is one of my favorite stress relievers.  Call me weird–I already know.  So this weekend, my town opened up their first Trader Joe’s!  It is the equivalent of Disneyland opening to me.  Of course, I had to visit opening weekend!

ski break

ski break || Journey for JessiLast weekend was a blast!  I went down to Winter Park for the weekend to go skiing–a typical pass time for the Colorado student I have discovered.  It was a nice break to exert some energy on the snowy mountains and be at one with nature and away from the crowded gym and college campus.  I love any type of vacation that involves a physical activity paired with it like skiing, surfing, hiking, biking, etc.  Although I did have a “cheat” weekend, I always made sure to keep everything in balance too.
