It’s 19 days until my wedding, and I’m still not feeling quite my best. I’ve been doing boot camp about 3 days per week, I eat very healthy and drink very little (well, not including my bachelorette party), but I still feel like I need more shoves in the right direction to get me to […]

Long time, no post! It’s been a while since my last entry, but with a performance ending and the semester winding down, my time has opened up a bit. I can see the end of my first semester back at school, and Thanksgiving break is right around the corner. I’ve learned so much but I’ve […]

Below is information I gathered from the conversation I had with one of the co-owners of the farm, Jacqui. Peppered through this post are a few updates that I received from Jacqui this […]
I know this is VERY belated and that I will be writing a Week 3 recap very shortly as I’m on my last day of week 3, but I didn’t want Week 2 of my journey to go unnoticed because of what happened during this time. Remember, a great resource during the Whole30 is “It […]
