Afternoon snack of lettuce wraps with almond butter. Some raising as a late afternoon snack Dinner was sheet pan fajitas on broccoli ans cauliflower rice with avocado. And night snack of chia seed pudding and blueberries. I feel proud of myself. I had lower energy but my mood was very sable today. I am not sure what I have gotten myself into and am nervous about late night cravings. I cannot

  2. @Semii use A bcaa capsule which is compliant, would that be suitable? I don’t do body building so may not be enough for your needs however.

    @eramseyhi, sounds like you have had a good few days? Well done! Is this your first w30? If you would like some advice, I would suggest go back to the book and reread the bits on the meal template; you might find that snacking on fruit doesn’t help you eliminate your sugar cravings, I do this especially when I am tired, so you are not alone. However protein/fat based snacks if you have to snack at all are a better choice. Ideally you would eat so much at your meals that you could go 4/5 hours without needing any more food. This comes from having protein and fat in good quantities

    The party was cancelled last night as one of the organizers tested positive for COVID. Dinner ended up being a chicken Caesar salad, with compliant Caesar dressing. I woke up a little after 5 this morning. I could have got up, but didn’t and fell back asleep for 2 more hours. I think I’m ready to start getting up and going to gym next week. I’ve been busy so far today, cleaning, taking dog to class, walking…just now sitting down to read for a bit. Day 11 M1-sausage and spinach M2-leftover chicken chimichurri and spinach M3-hamburger with the fixings, sal

    Day 2 & 3 So far I feel less puffy if that makes any sense at all. I do think I see an improvement in my skin's texture. I went for a walk/run this morning and it felt so good. I woke up happiest and in a better mood and lets just say there are frequent bathroom visitas but not as much gas. I will leave that right there. I am very hungry a lot. So far no headache. I have done detox challenges in the past for up to 2 weeks so I know that I need to eat more than I normally do. I already miss cheese a lot and sugar in my coffee. And my son's snacks are so tempting when

    Day 1 in the Books

    Thank you @MadyVanilla. You are so sweet. I do like to cook but I have gotten away from it so one of the fun things for me is getting excited about cooking with whole ingredients again and trying new recipes. One of the problems I had was that I was stuck in a rut with meals so I think I was actually getting bored with the same thing or I would focus on what my son will actually eat (because toddler food tantrums are no fun) which is pasta, nuggets etc and then I sneak veggies in there. So by cooking to his preferences I would often skip out because I know that those foods aren't the best for

  8. And so it begins tomorrow. I have about 30 lbs to lose. I used to be extremely active even running 10k races. And I believe that being that healthy helped me carry a difficult pregnancy and deliver a wonderful healthy 8 lb 3 oz baby boy. But that baby boy is now 2.5 years old and it is time to get serious about getting this excess weight off. I do not feel good about myself or the way I look. Being a busy working mom (I work 6 days per week) I fell into the trap of convenience and grabbing what I could when I could. I have often skipped meals, by working straight through lunch and then d
