  1. Hokay... I've been doing so great while on my own these last 3 weeks, but this is going to be the true test - going home to my bf and keeping myself from joining him on the couch eating chips! Wish me luck!! Day 22 - perhaps I feel the tiger blood? (I don't know really, working 28 days straight of 12 hour shift is EXHAUSTING on a good day, so I think that may be obscuring my results), but I have felt in rather good spirits for the last week or so, so perhaps that is it. I have noticed though, how CLEAR my skin is (and believe me I notice every little blemish on my face), and how great fo

  3. Too funny. After my post last night about not touching my comfort foods while sick…. This was the daily Whole30 text I received. It's Day 17, and by now, you've hit a bump or two. You've been anxious, lonely, or scared, and tempted to comfort yourself with something sweet and instantly gratifying (AKA numbing). A gentle reminder from me (and from Past You, who came to the Whole30 in part for this specific reason): Food won't make it better. It won't make it easier. It won't make you happier. It doesn't fill the hole. It doesn't fix what's wrong. Connection, support, love, and reass

  4. Hi everyone - quick early Wednesday morning report that I believe the tiger blood is here! It’s day 17 perfect timing as I’m running around at work with new employee orientation - I’m a corporate trainer. I was up before 4am and ready to go! Finally less hungry too. Hope you all are having a great week …the W30 home stretch is in sight!

  5. Great to read all the posts, gives a little boost on this 2nd day dealing with an upset bowel… (I’m on W30 day 17) I’m not sure what caused it, but I might have overeaten on (chinese 5 spice) cashews… or it were the marinated mushrooms..? So for the coming days I’m trying to stay away from nuts, cabbages, mushrooms and raw veggies and hope to be in shape back soon because Sunday I felt like I could conquer the world and was sure the Tiger Blood had kicked in!

  6. Can I just pat myself on the back for a second I am a HUGE comfort eater!! Being sick is one of those times I WANT/NEED comfort food!! I don’t have an appetite right now per say but I have killer cravings and habits calling to me big time!! I want sugary sprite, I want cold ice cream, I want warm, homemade, thick noodled, chicken noodle soup and saltine crackers. I want my dads chocolate chip cookies and I want my grandma to bring me orange popsicles. I want all of those things to make me feel better! And you know what….. I haven’t touched any of them. I’m in my emotionally weak pl

  7. Good for you for not giving in to the cravings @MizRik! If you’re still having a sore throat, you could also try gurgling with tepid salted water and/or take herbal tea with thym in it. Get well soon!

  8. Last night I dreamt about accidentally eating off-plan! The dream included a scene where the police were dragging me and my family off. I was rummaging through a drawer finding snacks for my son. In real life, the snack drawer contains roasted seaweed, rice cakes, nuts, corn nuts, Lara bars. In the dream it was like kind of gross, low-end junk food, store-bought cookies, none of them in their packages, sticky with jam...

  9. Well I am annoyed. I am on day 15 and just found out there was a tiny bit of honey in my salad dressing today. I always get a compliant basil dressing but today got a green goddess because it was pre-30 default and I wasn't thinking. I really can't "start over" since I am heading to Jamaica shortly after the 30 so I guess I'll just soldier on and settle for whatever it will be. Rah!
