Social Media Update

I am venturing out of my comfort zone. I have Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat accounts that have been idle in fear of not know how the heck to use them. I pretty much stick with Facebook. But today I decided to face my fear and risk looking dumb and logged back into the above platforms. If you’d like to follow my crazy, insane, and even sometimes boring escapade of a life feel free. My names for each are: Twitter: EmilysEscapades Instagram: EmilyEscapade (note: no “s”) Snapchat: EmilyEscapade (note: no “s”) Facebook: EmilysEscapades In this world of technology and social media it’s easy to get bogged down and overwhelmed. There is a lot to learn and know. It seems like just as soon as I fin

It’s D11 Already

Wow!!! Where does the time go. It’s day 11 on this new journey. I haven’t written in several days because I didn’t think I had anything worthy to say. But as I sat in front of my dinner plate, a thought raced through my head. “Who wouldn’t want to read about this?” I got really excited and couldn’t wait to finish dinner so I could share my recipe. I went from self-doubting to pure excitement and confidence that someone else would have to find this interesting! The first several days were hard. I had a terrible headache, didn’t feel well, I was irritable, and so very sleepy. The body’s natural response. It was crying out to me. “Don’t do this!!! I need sugar, carbs, processed goo!” If those s

D2 thru D5

My title sounds like Star Wars characters. There is no crafty space ships or Darth Vader in today’s post but there is a foe of another kind called hunger. I am doing this Whole30 eating thing.

Good thing I rid the house of all things tempting. I sought the support of friends who are also partaking in this journey and they assured me if I was foll

Happy New Year!!!🎊

Day 1 of 30 That’s right I am back to counting the days. I thought I was done doing that with the summit of Katahdin for my Appalachian Trail thru hike. That was 2 months ago. I have decide to take on another challenge. This one will be way more of a struggle for me then any long distance hike. Since my return from the trail I have continued to suffer from aches, pains, lethargy, and insomnia. I believe most of the culprit to be poor eating choices, garbage in garbage out. Last week a friend mentioned in a Facebook post something about Whole30. I was intrigued and without batting an eye, I decided I would give it a try. I don’t even fully understand what it is other than a very strict health
