Guys, my birthday is this month! Actually it’s this week. I thought I would hate getting older as I near 30, but I actually have never been more excited in my life! Okay lies, I’m pretty much this excited every time I have a few spare hours to watch The Office and hang with Marlow
What a beautiful time of year! The leaves are changing, scarves and boots come out of your closet, and autumn flavours are out in full swing. Apple cinnamon muffins, peach cobblers, or pumpkin spice anything has my name all over it. Even though summer is over, everyone starts soaking up the holiday cheer starting with Thanksgiving,
It just seems so simple. Change your thoughts, change your life. Such a popular topic lately… and something I’ve been very keen on researching as developing these healthy thinking habits have been linked to decreasing symptoms of depression.

First of all, I don’t need
Okay I know that’s not a word. But I heard someone talk about it on a podcast and then laughed, and then decided to write some nonsense about it. And by adding the -ing it is really confusing, and almost sounds like I’m talking about a shoulder. But basically, I’m talking about that one word
I cannot believe I ACTUALLY completed a Whole 30. I am pretty fricken proud of myself. 30 days. No grains, sugar, dairy, legumes, alcohol. Anytime I make a goal for myself, I just have to attack it. It took myself a loooong time to convince myself to actually go through with it, and with
And just like that, I am 2/3 of the way finished Whole 30! Honestly it doesn’t even feel like I am on a specific “diet” or have any limitations on my current eating habits. It’s just, life. Someone made a face when I said I couldn’t have any wine at a restaurant and it didn’t
Believe it or not, I have never done a Whole 30. I’ve been a paleo advocate for over 5 years, a firm believer in the “80/20” approach, and have never completed a Whole 30.
