This isn’t the end

Eighteen days into the Whole30. That is all the farther I journeyed before calling it quits. Last Thursday Mark and I sat on our bed for an hour debating the pros and cons of staying on the Whole30 challenge. We decided that it would be in our better interest to say “goodbye” for now, but…

What’s for dinner?
