    So yesterday ended up looking like, "well, I guess I'll just do carnivore" with some cole slaw & ranch, potato & ghee thrown in later in the day. Lol. That's not carnivore at all. Point being - there wasn't anything in the danger zone for me. I think I'll keep posting daily just to keep track of what's going on.

  2. OK, so I just need to flag this, because it is a big deal for me - I'm a rule follower and an all or nothing type of person and I find it difficult to adapt when someone moves the goalposts, so I'm just going to acknowledge that.... I'm putting peas in the turkey pot pie tonight. I have a weird mental relationship with peas. Weight Watchers always counted the 'points' of them when all veggies were free, and that led me to thinking peas were 'bad'. Then W30 banned them, so I kept avoiding them, even thought I love them. Now they're ok on W30, as I believe they should be, but my little pea

I used My Fitness Pal, and was pleasantly surprised that I came in under MFP's recommended calories for me. Total calories was 1209, goal

  5. @ShadowInTheKitchen Here’s the original recipe: https://www.onelovelylife.com/healthy-beef-and-broccoli/ I buy really cheap cuts of steak. The really thin, flat ones that are like 8 for $6.00 or the ones that are already cut for stir fry. Don’t waste expensive steak on it. I miss my gym too. I love working out and being active. I’ve been telling myself for a couple of months that I would work out at home and just now made myself start doing it. I started running again a couple of weeks ago and caught sight of my triceps jiggling. That was enough to convince me. @Schrod

  6. Dinner - bacon and apple smothered pork chops and green beans https://nomnompaleo.com/post/77596713058/bacon-apple-smothered-pork-chops Movement 2 mile walk/run home workout - squats, pushups, planks, crunches and several arm exercises (Momma has bat wings!) I felt good again today. Very energized and determined. I bought a lot of new shorts in my normal size that I can’t wear right now. I did my home workout while wearing a pair of them and a sport bra. Nothing gets you motivated like a bunch of flesh flapping about. I apologize for that visual but I didn’t upload a pic

  8. @RachelR I agree, and have noticed that although I still spend time working to have compliant meals or looking for new recipes, it’s productive time, in which I am usually learning something, not just counting or weighing. W30 is definitely not “no pressure,” but when I look back at my NSV’s I can see the progress I’ve made in many ways. Sort of like working towards a degree in my own health :-) Thanks for your comment Shadow

  9. Day 23- tried some new recipes. Made this Chili Lime Shrimp- https://realsimplegood.com/chili-lime-shrimp/ tonight for dinner. I served mine as "tacos" on hearts of romaine with peppers and onions I cooked in the same pan after the shrimp were done, sliced up some avocado on them too, and salsa as well as the sauce and an extra squeeze of lime juice. For a side I made a "Mexican" cauliflower rice (I just cooked up some diced onions, added some frozen Trader Joes cauliflower rice and then stirred in some salsa. I don't think it tasted great. Need to figure out a way to make cauliflower ric

  10. @Blueautumn I still remember on my first W30, the first time I woke up totally refreshed after a solid sleep. I knew then that I wanted more of that. It’s def something for you to look forward to! I’m sorry about naming the off-plan food. I try not to do that, especially for myself when I re-read my posts because it can trigger me to want it. Fun fact though, I prepped it, cooked it, sliced it and served it and NOT ONCE did I crave it. WOW. Just wow. A big NSV. This too is something you can look forward to. Shadow

  11. mmm pizza - this is not the time for me to be reading ppls logs ROFL all the food is just making me crave other food right blah I bet its comforting to know that just listening to your body is getting you in where you need to be without you actively doing any counting/restrictions. That sleep must also be amazing <3 im jealous.

  14. I love it! It came from a steak and broccoli recipe. When I went to make it, the broccoli was rotten so I just ate the crispy steak. I’ve had it every day since then. Day 1, Take 2 is so far so good. I hope your Day 3 (?) is going good. I’m going to catch up on everyone shortly.

  15. Good morning, I appear to have slept off the headache, which is a boon. Hopefully it stays away! Day 17, they're just flying by! I'm starting to really turn my mind to what after 30 days is going to look like. Part of me wants to commit to a longer strict round, another part wants to transition to "paleo" (i.e. with some swypo - though I'm having that now, where I feel it's warranted and I'm not planning on getting into paleo baking because my sugar dragon doesn't care if it's dates or rock candy, it will hoover that shiz), part of me wants to stay compliant unless I don't, i.e. occasions

    @ShadowInTheKitchen ~ yes, I have to go. My MIL has dementia and I will be the one in charge of her care. This is a huge, big deal ... taking her from the tiny (tiny) town she's been in her entire life ... saying goodbye to her mom, son, grandkids, and her house. Going away from everything she's ever known. What a blessing that I went back to school, became an RN, and specialize in elderly / dementia care. I understand what is going on with her, and I am a comfort to her in a way that perhaps her sons are not so much. It's hard for them to recognize and deal with the disease and not

  17. Lol @Blueautumn ~ the great news is, these mad cravings (like for cheese) DO go away. They really, truly do not last the entire time. Promise. You will find things that fill the void, and it will become a thing of the past. You will be able to look back and say: I conquered it!

  18. Day 25, Monday May 25 M1: 1/3 cup potato-egg salad, salty sliced cucumbers M2: leftover chicken thigh reheated, and freshly roasted cauliflower, carrots and sweet pepper tossed in olive oil and salt Snack: fruit salad (banana, pineapple, strawberries) M3: romaine and spinach salad with chicken and avocado, green goddess dressing NSV: I shopped for groceries today, bought lots of healthy foods and I didn't have any temptations to buy junk, or chemical concoctions as I see them now. NSV: I'm feeling very pleased with myself for eating well, and notice that I no long

  20. Day 1, I quickly realized my struggle will be eating 3 meals. I felt like I smacked for two meals and then ate a huge dinner. Day 2 I vow to have 3 meals!!

  21. Day 9 5/24 - and the hits just keep on coming. When I said we needed to catch a break this is not what I had in mind. 7:15 up with baby. Get our day going. I got his breakfast served up and then we headed to the bathroom to get me ready. Lol he was into everything this morning and a short fuse to boot. I was grateful when hubby got up and took over and I think baby was too. 8:30 M1 - LO sweet potato apple breakfast bake. Probably should have made efforts at having a salad or something but I was doing good to get that down and out the door. I was so excited
