I started this blog a little over two years ago, with a goal in mind: work through my skin and digestive issues, and share the journey, hoping to reach those those who are looking for solutions and answers. Well, after two and a half years, I don’t know if I have figured out the whole problem yet, but I have found some of the triggers that make things worse. Something is better than nothing, right?

So last month, I explained the skin issues I’ve been dealing with. I didn’t mention that I’ve also been dealing with an injury at the same time. This injury started shortly after I got back from Colorado in June. I went out running one day and had a terrible pain in the top of my foot – so bad I couldn’t walk properly for a few steps after I stopped running. I was so scared I had a stress fracture… and so after much convincing from other running friends, I finally went to a physical therapist for an evaluation.
Friends. I think I might need help.
I apologize for keeping you out of the loop, because I ran two races a couple weeks ago! I ran my second half marathon, the Rock ‘n’ Roll half in DC, followed by the Baltimore Shamrock 5k the next day. And I PRed in both races! Continue reading “Am I crazy?”
While reading the Whole30 book today, I found that my favorite part is the “what you’ll probably experience over the 30 days.” I noticed that I have followed the pattern (a little) that is laid out in the book. In it, it says probably around days 12-15, you will dream about food.

You know, when you get a brand new container, and the first scoop is always so satisfying to take? Yeah, THAT was what I dreamt about. Thankfully, that was only one night. Otherwise, no dreaming of food. Continue reading “Whole30 – Week 3”
So week 2 has been even better than week 1 was. I realized that the problem I had last week with running was in fact, a problem of not enough fuel. I went running on Wednesday night, and had more fuel to prepare for it.
As I said in my previous post about New Year’s goals, one of my goals is to SOLVE my digestive issues. I have some idea of what is wrong, but I’m still not quite sure. Cue Whole30. I’ve seen some posts about Whole30 on Pinterest and Instagram, but I didn’t really know what it was. So I looked into a bit, and thought it might be a good option for me to try, as it might be able to help me figure out what foods cause issues. Continue reading “Whole30 – Week 1”
Happy New Year!!
First, apologies for the lack of updates recently. As I explained in my previous post about sleep, and what I’ll also detail below, I’ve had quite a bit going on. Here’s to a new year with more blog posts! Continue reading “Resolutions”
