final-white-insta-post-low-res-300x300Yup. I’m joining the band wagon and doing Whole30 challenge.

Anyone care to join me?

Its freakin hard!

I mean its so easy to change everything about the way you eat.

Did I mention I’m only on day 2?

Don’t know whole30? Well, basically you can only eat natural foods – stuff thats not been processed. Its a lot like Paleo – but not (as it firmly says on its website). Like last night I had 2 burgers with mashed cauliflower. Soooooo good! Lemme know if you want the recipe to mashed cauliflower. All the ones online include butter and/or milk. I add neither.

Honestly its my new favorite dinner side. cauliflower that is. Anyways, back to today. We started homeschool today and whew….were there dramatics. Glad ABEKA starts off slow – they just had review for today. I don’t know if any other program does that – we’ve just been on ABEKA.

Soimg_0664 today started the 530am workouts. I am gonna start working out that early so that I don’t hafta worry about it during schooling.

It went well – burned almost 900 calories! Yay!

I say yay cause Ive set a goal for myself. Burn 1000 calories per day. After that vacation I was not motivated to do it. But I’m feeling my oomph coming back.

Especially after this morning!
