Whole30: Shop-a-thon

Yesterday was the binge and purge of all the food in our kitchen. Well, not entirely, our boys still have to eat. But for the most part, our kitchen has been cleansed of all the starchy, creamy, stuff we can't eat over the next 30 days. And boy did it send me on a tizzy. [caption id="attachment_1442" align="alignleft" width="225"] It's the size of my head!![/caption] The day started off with a tip to the Marietta City Farmer's Market, where I loaded us up on some fresh veggies. There's nothing quite as good as local produce. Its crazy the difference home grown/organic makes. I mean, check out this friggin' sweet potato!…

Next level salad!

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="538"] Four meat salad![/caption] We are constantly looking for ways to eat cleaner and stick to our Whole30 Challenge. Well last night we went out for some BBQ and I ordered the 4 meat + 2 side combo (Sausage, Brisket, Chicken, Turkey + Salad and Collards). There was no way I was going to be able to eat all of it so I brought the meats home with me. Today rather than have a simple pile of meat on a plate I made an epic salad. What made it doubly epic wasn't just the fact that it had 4 different animals on it, but I got creative…

PaleO Snap!

So over the weekend Jess and I started our adventure into this Whole30/Paleo deal. I think we were a bit confused. Now I think I've got it sorted out. The Whole30 is essentially a 30 day cleanse/challenge which is a more strict and streamlined version of Paleo. Paleo itself is already pretty rigid in terms of what you should/shouldn't eat, but the Whole30 is on another level. From what we can ascertain we went Paleo. We didn't contract "polio" as Chase would have everyone believe, instead we began a journey into a cleaner and healthier way of eating. So far it's been a bit taxing, but not impossible. Heck, I've…

The Whole30, or at least the Half30… or maybe Half15

Over the past few months Jess and I have been doing fantastic at going to the gym. We've also done really well with our eating. That's not to say that there's no room for improvement, but in general we're doing pretty good. On the flip side however we've kinda stalled out. This happens with virtually any fitness/health routine. You do great the first week, maybe a month, but eventually you hit a wall or plateau and just come to a halt. Your body becomes use to the way things are, the level of effort required to do your WODs and most of the toxins have been sweated out in the…
