Attempting Sauerkraut

    I have decided to try my hand at sauerkraut, as I had an abundance of cabbage. I tried to follow the instructions in Practical Paleo, but who knows if I’m doing this right! It said to test it occasionally, but I’m scared to! It’s looking pretty funky, and I hope this experience doesn’t […]

21DSD – Week 1

Week 1 of my 21 Day Sugar Detox was a success! Overall I have felt a huge improvement in my energy level, which was my main goal to begin with. I usually hit a wall mid-afternoon in the office, always looking for a 3pm pick me up of coffee, tea or treat. This week I […]

Double Unders

I have made it my mission to master the double under. Let it be known I am not the best skipper to begin with, so I somewhat expected to be covered in whip marks. For anyone who is unfamiliar, a double under is when the rope rotates twice per jump, fast hands! As I struggle […]

21DSD – Day 4

Day 4 –┬áBack to work today, but first it was arm day. For most of my exercises I first did a set of 3×10 Time Under Tension (which means 1 second concentric and 3 second eccentric – slowww) of as heavy weight as possible, followed by the same exercise 3×15 with a 15 second timed […]

Unfalvoured BCAA

Unfalvoured BCAA all the way! I like it way better than the super sweet artificial shiz I used to drink. I think this stuff tastes slightly like potato chips. Plus I got a couple of new water bottles. I have realized that I drink the most water out of a clear water bottle with a […]

21DSD – Day 1

So first off, I’ll admit this isn’t technically day 1 for me… I was basically eating sugar free during my two week trip to BC. This is day one of following the 21DSD Meal Plan! So if I don’t seem to be going through the usual struggles – that may be why. The 21DSD has […]

I’m Feeling Paleo

I’m back! I’ve taken a little break… I tried macro tracking for a while, then became a hermit as a result. Counting every last gram did not work for me. (Well it worked physically, but not so much emotionally.) Personally, I find that tracking/counting macros/calories led me to have an unhealthy relationship with food. I […]
