  1. I hope everyone is ready for the weekend! I feel awesome and I know we are going to do great!
  2. I am on Day 11 and I have been eating roasted pistachios and almonds, but someone that comes into my work told me I cant eat roasted nuts.. He said it had to be raw. I have looked everywhere in the WHOLE30 book and I cant find anything saying whether or not roasted is not compliant. HELP!
  3. I don't know if I am the only one that feels this way, but today was the worst I have felt since we started the Whole30. Day 8 Definitely lives up to its reputation like she wrote in her book. I woke up groggy and I feel completely bloated! UGh. This doesn't make me want to cheat though... Thankfully! It is actually making me want to work more on the time I eat and start to make cuts with all the snacks I am eating too...don't know about you, but I have been snacking throughout the day still.. So I think its time to start getting more strict on the times I eat my meals and the time I can snack and not have it go against my goals. Always have to look on the brighter side! Hang in there everyone! Welcome to DAY 8!
  4. This weekend was definitely testing my self-control. I babysat my friends son this weekend and she told me they had just went grocery shopping so I could just eat at her place! YAY, right? Actually no, she made chicken, but it was covered in butter and breadcrumbs. She had salad in the fridge, but it already have dressing on it and I didn't want to eat something that could potentially make me start over... So I ate one of her avocados and some of her fruit. Not a great dinner, but hey I am still here pushing through. Sunday was hard as well because that's when we ride our dirtbikes and when we go out riding and relaxing.. naturally: we drink beer and eat junk... but instead I brought my Kambucha and some healthy alternatives like an orange and pistachios! I am getting better about being around food that I cant have but want to eat... I can make my boyfriend PB&J's and not cry anymore I feel like the hardest part about not eating the foods you grew up on are the memories you have with them and the "traditions" you start associate them with, like Sunday, ditbikes & beer... Its all about breaking free from those "traditions" and creating new connections with healthier foods & drinks! I am ready to see where our next few weeks take us! Happy one week everyone!
  5. You're right Nancy ! I just cant believe I am actually doing this and doing it the right way at that! I am getting better with cravings, but I keep snacking on celery and cucumber just to stay level through the day and also so when I eat a meal I will feel satisfied after! I feel great for day 5 and it feels good to have all you guys with me! Stay focused on the bigger picture this weekend and know you are going to feel even better come Monday; knowing you over came the first week of Whole30!
  6. Okay, so I am pretty positive I didn't cheat yesterday, but I would just like someone to confirm that for me. I bought almond butter last night and put it on a banana and I also had a pack of seaweed with no preservatives and no artificial flavoring. I felt very satisfied after those and since they were so good I am concerned I may have cheated in some way. The Almond Butter literally just had almonds in the ingredients and the seaweed didn't have anything off limits either! HELP! Why do I feel like I cheated?!
  7. It will! I hope you all have taken before pictures, because all I have to do is look at those to keep myself motivated and just the simple fact that it might only be day 4, but we still have come along way! I don't want to mess things up so that's why I joined this group! I am so excited to keep hearing about everyone's day and journey! Keep up the awesome work: we are all in this together!
  8. Thank you! I have been actively watching my diet since December, but I would allow myself little indulgences here and there! When I don't have a strict challenge hanging over my head I will usually diet more loosely, so that's why I am super stoked about the Whole30! M friend has the book and I have read through it a few times! I feel great during the day its just when I go home and see all the things I cant have it makes me sad, but on the other hand when I wake up and realize I haven't cheated once I feel amazing about myself! I
  9. I've never really done this whole forum thing, so I am sorry in advance if I am doing it all wrong! I am now on Day 3 with all of you and let me tell you last night was sooo hard for me... I am the only one in my house that is doing the Whole30 and my boyfriend and roommate are both heavy junk eaters! They made pizza last night while I was eating my zucchini noodles and shrimp My mouth was literally salivating and I grew super grumpy! Even when I am in the kitchen I get sad because I cant have any milk and peanut butter, which was my go-to after my gym sessions... How is everyone else dealing with these cravings and emotions!?
