I really like my red wine. I’m on Whole30 right now and life without my glass of Syrah has been… well, painful.

I mean, I don’t even drink daily. I have a glass of wine a couple of evenings a week if I’m having something for dinner that just has to have a glass of red wine with it.

Whole30 and 30 Day Shred: Week 3

Whole30 and 30 Day Shred week 3

Another week on Whole30!

Overall week 3 has been interesting. I haven’t accomplished as much as I hoped: I haven’t eaten proper breakfasts (= more than just fruits) and I haven’t had any fish.

But then again I have started shredding again! Not as much as I would like to but I’ve done four 30 Day Shred workouts this week – that is certainly an improvement to my zero workouts last week

Here’s my week 3 report:

Whole30 and 30 Day Shred: Week 2

What a week it’s been. I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t done that well this week.

30 Day Shred and Whole30 week 2

Well, my diet has been OK. I haven’t eaten anything that’s not allowed, so I have to be pleased with that. But my workouts… Or the lack of them.

I haven’t done 30 Day Shred once this week.

There, I said it. I already thought about taking the word 30 Day Shred off from the title of this post. Well, I’m going to have to if I keep this up.

Here’s my report on week 2:
