  2. Day 48 Still on course, though the deviated COVID course, of course. I have never, and I mean ever, in my life lost my appetite the way I have this week. I'm still eating, but only one meal a day. Making it count the best I can. In addition to throwing away my old jeans, I spent some time trying on all my smallest jeans. They vary widely in size, with some 6s feeling bigger than some 10s (go figure, dang useless sizing), but the point is I can get them all on and zipped and buttoned for the first time in a very long time. That feels good, even if I have to take a nap from the ex

  3. Thank you so much @BabyBear! I've just been letting myself rest this weekend, but I keep thinking one box at a time, start small. . . . the good thing is I already have a lot of my packing done from when I had planned to move Sept. 1. It's mostly the kitchen and bathroom at this point. I might get started on the bathroom today. It won't take long, and it would feel like a major accomplishment. Thanks for the nudge!

  4. The Whole30 has helped me greatly in the past. I'm ready to do a hardcore W30 again. It seems like folks are sharing their day-to-day Whole30 stories over in the Logs forum. I think I'll do that, too. Pop on over there if you'd like to join me starting October 20, or cheer me on from the sidelines. Wish me luck!

  5. @LadyMmy other main love language is physical touch, and yes yours are certainly hard with a long distant relationship. You are a brave and wonderful person to stick it through as your “dude” takes care of his mom. I hope you are feeling better and on the mend. Hopefully you’ve been able to use some time to devise a packing plan. I’m super excited for you to get into your very own house!

  6. Day 13 10/17 saturday play... and feeling oh so prego 7:30 up with the toddler. Get laundry going and food going. 9:30 2 deviled eggs (4 halves), dill pickles, cucumbers and carrots So pregnancy cravings kicked in for breakfast. And let me just say it was wonderful. It’s a good thing I packed up the extra eggs I made for later or I would have eaten them all. Life hack: to avoid eating a dozen eggs in one sitting when having made deviled eggs, only make half a dozen, that way you only eat six eggs. Ha ha ha. My mom came out and we went to JC Penny as soon as i

  8. Oh my gosh @BabyBear, I am so sorry that happened! I am so excited to start this whole30, I'm also hoping to get my husband on board too, he's had a lot of challenges with fatigue and GI stuff and migraines and I think this would help him a lot. I am so glad to be on the other side of the crippling exhaustion and nausea and food aversions!

  9. You look so beautiful and vibrant in your pic! So happy for all your wonderful results!!! (and yes, tomatoes/nightshades are commonly a problem for folks with autoimmune issues. Might be smart to do a stretch of autoimmune protocol at the end of your W30 and see how that goes for you. This is a good resource when you're ready: https://www.thepaleomom.com/start-here/the-autoimmune-protocol/ though there's also plenty of free info online. Having done W30 without AIP could very well be a good thing if you decide to go further, as you're easing your body into more radical changes and will lik

  10. Is It Tiger Blood? I woke up at 4:30 am and felt rested after only five hours of sleep. Yesterday we hiked what some consider a strenuous but short hiking trail up to the most beautiful waterfall and, while it was difficult, there is no way I would consider it strenuous. We're staying in Lexington, SC right outside of Columbia and we drove the two and a half hours to Marietta, SC to hike the Falls Creek Waterfall Trail. The day before we went to Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park and walked along the canal after I swam an hour in the pool at the airbnb. Today, we will either canoe Cedar C

  11. The Very Real Story of Me Here I am a 56 year old with my early years behind me but as always I struggle with my weight. I love when someone is able to get passed all the pain and be vulnerable in order to help others. I hope my attempt at being real will help someone else. I was always bigger than everyone else in my class. I was also growing in height faster than anyone else, head and shoulders taller than the next tallest kid in my class. "The Jolly Green Giant" read the tag stuck to my back as I entered the my cousin's birthday party. We were all different characters, l

  13. @Jennifer Jensenyay I’m glad you got an official word on the oatstraw. When I was using it to promote healing I’d make a big batch of it and keep it in the fridge. I’d have a cup in the morning and one at night. Typically my one at night I’d gently reheat on the stove so I could enjoy it warm. I would have enjoyed it warm in the mornings too but I was always in a rush. Sometimes I’d add it to a fruit/veggie smoothie. But it really is wonderful and very grounding. I found for me it was one of those slow gradual changes. You didn’t really notice the changes day to day but 5 months down t

  14. In reference to my quote: I've made it 9 days. I've come that far. I can go the full 30 and then reintroduction!!! Yesterday (Day 9) was a back to my normal day for me. I have had pain issues that pushed me down but they are not going to keep me down! Meals have been great! Eggs with chili oil, mayo, pico de gallo, and avocado. Bacon on the side. Lemon Basil Chicken with grilled red pepper, onion, carrots, and shitake mushrooms Acorn squash with apple, dried cranberries, raisins, coconut, and walnuts Snack 2 slices turkey and boiled egg with tajin seasoning @BabyBearWat

  15. It's official. I asked on Can I have...? Yes, as long as nothing else is added to it that is non-compliant. Yay! I have got to try it. @BabyBear It's a go!
