Well, I’ve gotten this far! Normally I cave in about now … and I must say I was really tempted yesterday as I made my family mushroom and chicken san choy bau for dinner (not my recipe choice) and while it contained some very lovely paleo ingredients, it also called for kecap manis (sweet soy) and peanuts. In hindsight I should have just substituted coconut aminos (why didn’t I think of that last night?!). Instead, I considered eating the very tasty looking mushroom mix v/s $300 donation to Mr Rabbit … and Continue reading
“Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you’ll have more success than you could possibly have imagined.” —Roger Caras

Technically, I’m only STARTING another Whole 30, rather than ‘doing’ another one, because I didn’t finish ‘doing’ the last one, nor the one before that, nor the one before that, nor … you get the idea.
Why didn’t I finish? I decided my desire for a quinoa cracker was worth more than my desire to finally finish a Whole 30. In hindsight, that seems silly, but it made sense at the time. One of my goals was to break the cycle of bad eating and drinking habits, which I did, until about 2 weeks later, when I started on my bad habits again (chocolate and wine being the most notable).
I’ve just come back from a spectacularly enjoyable 2 weeks in San Francisco, where I ate and drank whatever took my fancy, and I fancied a plentiful array of varied things (though mainly soft corn tacos with pulled pork, washed down with a margarita). My exercise routine was awesome at least; I walked almost everywhere, which meant up all those damn (but very pretty) hills. I also made it to San Francisco Crossfit which was one of the highlights of the trip. I’m totally in love with San Francisco – and not just because of SFCF although that does have somewhat to do with it 🙂
Anyhow, back to my reason for doing another Whole 30 and how I’m going to go about it a little differently this time. Continue reading
