Days 17 to 22 of Whole30

Just back from vacation at a friend's cottage and taking advantage of the Victoria Day holiday this past Monday. (Also known as Patriots' Day here in Qu├ębec). Her place is in the woods and nowhere near a computer. Made for a nice relaxing mini-break.

Whole30 is going much better and I think my tiredness was a symptom of PMS. Although my cravings for baguettes and pastries were strong, I rode it out and feel better for not giving in.

  1. Stumbled upon your blog while looking at another. From a fellow Canadian (East Coaster!), I just wanted to say, "GO YOU!" I find when I'm PMS'ing, I also crave carbs and sugar. So hard to avoid it! I look forward to reading more of your posts! Battle on. :)
