The Whole 30 - The Completion of Week Three

The Whole 30 – The Completion of Week Three

How are you all doing? Hanging in there? I’m not going to lie, the Whole 30, week three, has to go down as one of the most B.O.R.I.N.G. weeks in history. That’s about the only word to describe how both Deb and I feel. Bored. Its like, you know you are half way there, but it still seems like too much to deal with. We’ve said several times during week three, if we have to eat another vegetable, we will pass. Maybe that’s the point. 🤔 You just get so fed up that you refuse to eat.  Read why we started The Whole 30 in the first place.

Five on Friday and This week in Review - House on Winchester

Five on Friday and This Week in Review #36

Here we are again.  And what a week it’s been.  Lots and lots of personal things going on along with clients, etc.  So, therefore, this Five on Friday and This Week in Review post is late once again.  But not surprising.

Five on Friday

Every Friday Deb and I take turns sharing five facts about ourselves.  I love reading blogs when the writer talks personal stuff.  So, I started this series way back in the olden days and have only missed a few weeks.  There is a special tab at the top of the blog where they are all filed if you are interested in reading the older ones.  It’s Deb’s turn.  The last time Deb shared five, she was feeling “T”.  Remember? 😂  What the hell?

Nutpods Whole 30 Approved Creamer Review - House on Winchester

Nutpods – Non-Dairy Creamer Review Whole 30 Approved

If you live under a rock, we have been following The Whole 30 guide since January 1.  We started this program to use it as a detox from sugar and junk food, which we have found ourselves addicted to.  If you haven’t already, read why we chose this program and what our plans are after the 30 days.  The plan does not allow any of my “beloveds” – dairy and sugar.  Therefore… we can’t have a little coffee with our cream.  I don’t know about you coffee drinkers, but if you are used to warm brown coffee, it’s a little difficult to get used to drinking coffee hot and black.  That’s where my little friend, Nutpods, a non-dairy creamer that is Whole 30 approved, comes in.

The Whole 30 - Completion of Week Two - House on Winchester

The Whole 30 – The Completion of Week Two

We are half way through this Whole 30 plan. 🎉 And, I’m checking in at the completion of week two because I said I would.  And, trust me.  You are all making me accountable.    🤗

 

The Whole 30 – The Completion of Week Two

This past week had many ups and downs.  The physical detox symptoms were for the most part over.  And with that, I mean I had no headaches and irritability like I did in the first week.  But bouts of I-can’t-do-this-shit-any-longer reared its ugly head between both Deb and I.  I’m being completely honest.  There were two points this past week that I personally said out loud, “🖕🏼F*@k it.  I’m done.  I don’t care.”  And then I thought of all of you.  How could I possibly write these posts and get on Instagram and Facebook and tell lies. I mean, really, how would you know if I was telling the truth or not? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I could claim to be following the program while washing potato chips down the old hatch with a cold beer.  But, me being me… there is no way.  I cannot tell lies.  So, YOU made me stick to it.  And, I thank you.  😘

Five on Friday and This Week in Review #35

Hey guys…it’s Saturday. And I’m a day behind for this weeks Five on Friday. That’s absolutely not shocking to anyone, I’m assuming.  😐

We’ve been busy working on our fireplace project. I haven’t said anything on the blog yet, but if you follow me on Instagram, you already know this.  We had a large crack in the plaster above our fireplace that was pushing the mantel away from the wall.  Of course, I figured our entire fireplace was caving in because my mind likes to take things to the worst possible scenario.  And then I started to believe it would cost $1.5 million dollars to repair because I would have to call in the big guys.  We recently started tearing into the wall and realized it was only the plaster that was cracked with no structural damage.  Thank you, baby Jesus.
