  1. Well, I was going to just run away from this log because I had some sizeable failures this weekend. I traveled to see family and fell hard. I had about 30 hours of off-plan eating, drinking, etc. I was strong for the first 24 hours of the visit and then caved. Today I am back on track. I'm going to return to W30 for at least 2 weeks to get my body some rest after what I put it through. It is disheartening, but a weakness I know of myself. I really struggle to be around my family and eat well. I began a healthy lifestyle after moving away from them, so my life with them is not connected t

  2. Thank you!! Well, 2 weeks after I finished a round (and 2 weeks of eating like hell, drinking way too much and otherwise just letting it ALL go), I'm back with vertigo and migraine again, so - guess who's back? I need to get some groceries and do some prep but I need to get back to at least trying to eat decently. This cycle is terrible. I'm also noticing that it's taking shorter time for the migraines to come back when I get off track, so I wonder if my sensitivity is increasing. I still don't see the immunologist for 3 months, so I'm just going to try and stay as compliant as possi

  3. So I keep finding and trying new recipes and then forgetting them (I work on 3 diff computers so bookmarking is patchy at best), so I thought I'd start a recipe thread to post my findings, so here it is. Last night I made this Orange Ginger Salmon Skillet - YUM. https://thecastawaykitchen.com/2020/01/orange-ginger-salmon-skillet/ Very tasty, and very easy - I even threw it together with a migraine setting in (just wanted to eat, take drugs and go to bed before it got out of hand). I subbed snow peas for mushrooms as the hubster isn't a huge fan of mushrooms and the snow pe

  4. A Home for a Bunny Under a rock or a log or a stone or under the ground were some of the places this bunny went looking for home. I read the story to my sister until she had it memorized and could "read" it all by herself. My journey is a lot like this little bunny's search for a home. Sometimes the bunny searches in bunny-like places and sometimes the bunny looks in bogs and nests in trees. I feel like most of my journey has been not knowing what kind of home to look for. As a child I was six to eight inches taller than the other tallest kids in my class until I stopped grow

  5. Edit: I did a yoga nidra session, and it reduced my stress considerably. Remembering to use my tools! I can eliminate my own suffering. . . .

  6. Yummy! I had a friend over for dinner last night and thank my stars he eats very well (better than me! ) already. We made yummy chicken wings in the air fryer with New Primal buffalo sauce, roasted sweet potatoes in the oven and sauteed zucchini. With a side of Wildbrine sauerkraut and flavored sparkling water! It was soooooooooooooooo good. I have not once regretted my decision to purchase an air fryer. So worth it! Only less than 9 days left.....I can't believe how fast it has gone....I"m pretty nervous about day 31 and beyond....my parents will be visiting from out of town

  7. Day 35 Enjoyed a walk and IR sauna today. Preparing for a zoom meeting and teaching tomorrow has me a little stressed. Working through it. I confronted a couple of people about not communicating with me and it affected my job. I hate having to confront people, but I find I do it more gracefully while on W30, if that makes any sense. Like I'm more willing to just deal with things head on. Shrimp and scallops today. Digging eating more wild-caught seafood right now. And received a shipment of my favorite green tea. Sometimes it's the little things, no?

  8. Picture from https://www.maryjanedetroyer.com/new-york-city-registered-dietitian-criticizes-keto-diet/ I am an unorganized, totally over-extended or completely lazy, immoderate individual desiring peace more than I desire happiness or even food. Love - I absolutely love nature because that is one place peace spreads over every part of my being until I am just glowing. A co-worker actually gave me a shirt that says, "Nature is My Happy Place." Indeed it is. I am a very visual person. Well today I was walking and came across a heron in the lake near my house. These birds seem so seren

  9. Hi, T. You might check out the Join the Whole30 section of the forum (https://forum.whole30.com/forum/4-join-the-whole30/) to find groups of people starting now or near whatever date you decide to start, or you can start a thread there to find more people. If you do start a thread, putting the date you plan to start in the title makes it easier for people to find.

  10. @LadyMthe hip thing is a thing. I see a whole health chiropractor on the regular for it. He’s given me some stretches to do that help when this happens and I can’t get to him. It’s a hereditary thing, my moms mom dealt with it, my mom deals with it, I deal with it even my son deals with it (found out when he was 4 when I started seeing my chiropractor). With the added weight and pressure of the ever filling uterus it definitely exaggerates it and puts a lot of pressure on the nerves when it does slip out. It’s been much better the past two days but I feel it trying to give again so I’ll b

  11. Day 34 Just back from a country drive with BFF that started in the morning. I packed a thermos and snacks and ate what I brought. BFF hit the fast food and bakeries. He's supportive of what I'm doing but not yet interested in making changes for himself. It's all good. So, still on track and feeling good. Enjoying a lazy weekend. Loving fall. Watched a couple of interesting documentaries yesterday about paleo and lchf diets for healing. Feeling more and more recommitted to this lifestyle long term. Convinced it really is how human bodies achieve optimal health. Really contemplati

  12. R1D21 Day 21 how is it even possible that it is already day 21? I am loving how I am feeling!!! The bloating is gone. My stomach feels flat most of the time. My watch is looser, my clothes are looser too. Is looser a word? Lol looks weird. I am more positive, have a better outlook on life because I am in control of what I am eating and feeling great because I am feeding my body good healthy food. I started studying food and nutrition about 6 to 8 months ago and it is so interesting to learn how food affects our bodies. I wish that I could teach the world to eat for their health

  13. @SchrodingersCat”because it feels so empty without me”. I enjoyed catching up on your journey I’m so with you trying to find balance it seems when I’m good I’m very good, and when I’m bad I’m horrid! I hope your birthday was memorable. I also pray your dad heals quickly. It is beyond hard when our loved ones are hurting and there is nothing we can do because of things beyond our control. keep fighting the good fight, your health and well-being is definitely worth it!

  14. I love this because I am an over-planner. KISS. I really need to take this to heart. Thanks. I put your post in a link under my Encouragement topic where I plan to add links to tips and encouragement I need.

  15. I'm food bored, and snacky. I had part of a leftover lamb chop, some olives, a couple of dill pickles and a small handful of olives. I used to love Fridays lol, now being locked down I'm so fecking bored. I want to make interesting things and I literally can't even think of anything. Boredom makes me want to just go f'it and pour a glass of wine, and that will just lead to a weekend of garbage. Maybe I should do a junk food dinner compliant style - hot wings, meatballs, spicy slaw... I dunno. So bored. Usually I'd look forward to a movie night or something but that's all we've been

  16. It was such a disappointment to see that my bacon was not in fact sugar-free. "Less than 2% cane sugar" ugh. I think the shopper picked up the right brand, but wrong bacon, as it doesn't say sugar-free on the front of the package. I did, however, walk the dog to the farmer's market. It was lovely. And so affirming. I felt like a really healthy person, taking a walk to go shop for local tomatoes. Day 16 Energy-7, Pain-0, Mood-7. There were a whole bunch of teenagers strewn out in various locations throughout the entire downstairs, so I tiptoed through so as not to wake them
