Whole30 Round 2 – Day 3


Good Morning!  Day 3 was another good day although I had the fight the afternoon sugar cravings and I felt tired after work.  I had big plans to go to the gym but putting my jammies on when I got home sounded much better. I refer back to what we ate during our first Whole30 [Read On]
