21 Day Sugar Detox

21DSD Jan 2018 – Day 8 and Day 8

Day Eight happened twice for me, you’re not miscounting the dates.  Yesterday I ended up partaking on some items on the “No List.”  Long story short, I absorbed a large number of emotional stressors during the day and I just didn’t deal with it so well.  Food and wine is definitely a source of comfort […]

21DSD Jan 2018 – Day 6

Day Six – I’m f*#king grumpy tonight.  I was tired wrapping up my work day, then was in the kitchen for over three hours tonight doing prep, some cooking and a shi*tload of of dishes. At some point, I couldn’t find the onion powder, I realized I was out of red-wine vinegar, miscalculated the ketchup […]

21DSD Jan 2018 – Day 5

Day Five…you know, I have to tell you.  I feel like I’ve been on this detox for a lot longer than five days.  I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but as I started this post I’m thinking, “Really?  That’s IT?”  Today was going to be an awesome day because Diane Sanfilippo (author of the […]

21DSD Jan 2018 – Day 3

Day Three – I ended up snoozing my way out of my AM workout this morning.  I was just SO TIRED.  Roxy felt the same way. The book says getting a good night’s rest is important and clearly 5 – 6 hours ain’t cutting it.   I’m going to make a concerted effort to be in […]

21DSD Jan 2018 – Day 1

I started today playing catch up on prep and cooking and I swear I’ve run the dishwasher three time today.  The meal plan has “Cooking Days” (days that you prep and cook a lot) and “Easy Cooking Days” which involve less cooking and simpler recipes.  Pre-detox Days 2 and 1, and DSD Day 1 are […]

Giving Keto a Trial Run

I’ve done the paleo eating for a few years now, although admittedly over the last year or so, I’ve gotten somewhat lax on it.  I’ll go through phases where I’ve locked things down, but I invariably return to eating gluten-free products that are processed, eating lots of sugary stuff and definitely drinking more wine than […]
