  2. Hi Everyone! I'm Patrick and I'm starting the Whole30 tomorrow (Monday, June 1st 2020) with my mom. I have been back and forth with my health for a few years now. While I have been relatively health-conscious, I haven't achieved a sustainably healthy lifestyle that allows me to maintain my goals long-term. This is definitely a time of transition in my life: I am currently living at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, after which I will be relocating to LA for work. I was also recently in an accident that broke my collarbone that I am still recovering from. Since there's a lot of

    Round 4 - FIGHT!

    Oh my goodness, I can totally relate to your recent post expressing concerns about life after Whole30. It reads as something I could have written myself. I'm also on my fifth Whole30 and I have fallen into fourth-grade-boy-left-alone-at-home bad eating habits in between each one. When will I learn? I've had Food Freedom Forever and also haven't read it. What could it possibly teach me that I don't already know?! LOL. Maybe it's time for me to read it too. I need this one to stick. I need this round to be the driver for a permanent lifestyle change. I feel so much better, so much more aligned,

  4. Sorry, I neglected to say it's an internet-based company-they source wines rather than produce them, but you can often find the ones they are selling at the original vintner or through wine.com, etc. I never thought to ask my local store to order for me! If you check them out and decide to order, it does take about 5 days to get to you and you pay the shipping. And they are a little pricier than what you might typically be able to get in store, but I've been happy with all my bottles so far.

  5. I've also done 5 rounds, currently working on preparing myself for round 6. While I was frustrated with myself that I didn't hold fast, looking back, they were good resets for me. There wasn't a lot of time that passed between the first four. I had a period of about 8 years where I maintained a healthy, whole-30 influenced lifestyle. It was almost 5 years between round 4 and 5 (this past September), and boy did I fall off the wagon in that time. Here I am again, trying to get back to it, 90 pounds over where I was at my best weight about a decade ago. I think there is value in becoming a

  6. I love reading all your NSVs! And your hacks are awesome and easy to do. Re: the wine. I also enjoy having a glass a wine with dinner or sharing a bottle with friends. I don't know if you are aware of DryFarm Wines? They source organic, no sugar-added wines from around the world. The wines are considered paleo- and keto-friendly.

  7. Dinner is meatball stew - meatballs in a tomato sauce (with some of my red pepper sauce chucked in) with potato, carrot, celery and beans.

  8. Huh. I just went back to look at my previous logs for previous rounds to get some ideas and I found my Round 1 log, my Round 2 log, my Round 3, log, my other Round 3 log, and this one... This is actually round 5! One of the round 3's I didn't make it all the way through (22 days then had to go interstate with no hope of staying compliant), and second Round 3 was also cut slightly short (intentionally, I had booked a holiday to a cheese festival 6 months beforehand so it was a W25) but I did not realise that I've actually done 5 rounds (albeit 2 incomplete) in 18 months. There you go.

DAY 1 B - coffee (black); curried cauliflower soup L - salad (romaine, radicchio, celery, mint) w/ vinaigrette (olive oil, vinegar, mustard) + nutritional yeast; olives & pickled peppers; sole fillet S - La Croix; cherries & small handful of walnuts D - zucchini noodles w/ tomatoes, pickled peppers, olives, chimichurri & chicken hearts; a few dates (for dessert) A very small breakfast today because I woke up at an obscenely late hour. Feeling good! I went for a walk after lunch and this helped with the afternoon fatigue - managed to go an entir

  11. Y’all got me all teary eyed. Thank you for the words of encouragement. Water! Water! Water! I realized I’ve hardly been drinking anything at all. A sip of water or Gatorade here a chug of chocolate milk there. So I’m working on drinking all my water today. I’ve had 51 Oz so far today and it has helped. Not only was I exhausted I had also been dealing with dehydration. We declared today a TV free day which has also helped us all be more productive. Im going to steal a nap while baby naps before my skate son gets here to help me mount skate boots to fill some more orders.

  13. Welcome back, and congrats on getting those meds under control and on the daily yoga! I also have trouble with overwhelm if I take on too many new things, and have found myself having to needing to say no to a few things this month so that I can keep my focus on eating well. Oh and spending more time in the kitchen Good luck on Day 1...

  14. Ghee was a massive success! I'm never buying it again. So was lunch, everything was so delicious! I admit I ate way more than I am accustomed to at the moment, and dinner will be a very light affair. It was so great to catch up with my friend, and just hang out.

  15. I'm the same with the working from home. I love it. I hate what it's doing to the world, but for me personally, if I could stay working from home forever, I'd be happy. I am exercising more, my house is clean, my yard's in order, I've got stuff done that I've been putting off for literally years. And the cooking is fantastic!
