Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Day 9 – Whole30 (Tiger Blood)

We made it to day 9 of the Whole30 and it really has not been that bad. BF has been cooking up some great meals with a lot of variety… I’m actually preferring his meals to eating out at my favourite restaurants

So the Bad: DAY 3-4 was insane. I’m a sensitive person and everything was 10-fold heightened these days. Day 4 I felt like I was in the Wacky Wednesday Dr. Seuss book – morning started with a toe stub, then I choked on the steak in my egg scramble  (BF saved the day with his version of the Heimlich). Then had a garage sale and made $2. Looking back, at the time seemed way worse than it was. There were tears and I was missing comfort treats like beer and wine and scotch and French fries but I resisted.

The GOOD: Around day 7 I think I started to really feel on the up side of things. Allergies started clearing up (I can breathe through my nose again). My head is clearer – I have had a noticeable change in my ability to formulate and explain my thoughts verbally (something that used to frustrate me). I feel Happy, on a bit of a high (maybe this is the Tiger Blood Whole30ers speak of?). No Migraines or vertigo to speak of. So much more energy to work out and energy to push out the sensitivity and negative thoughts. If this lasts I may not want to stop the Whole30.

Here’s some pictures of some of my favourite meals so far. For more of our meals check out

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
