    Apricot's W30 Log

    Before I start my first entry, I want to take a minute to reflect on my body. I have a great body. Like, a really great body. The caveat is that it isn't a pretty body, and that's the one aspect of it that I tend to get hung up on. Every time that I change my eating pattern, or consistently go to the gym, it's always done with self-hatred as a motivator. I've achieved a lot with self-hatred; it's an incredibly powerful motivational tool! It's also one that leaves me miserable, and unable to acknowledge (much less enjoy) any personal victories. Every time I look in the mirror (

  2. Limited studies have shown that people with coronary artery disease may benefit from taking extra D-Ribose, but outside those circumstances, your body makes it on its own and supplementation is not necessary. You can also get Ribose from foods like beef and eggs. Again, though, if it has been recommended by a person's doctor (and not some doctor on the internet), it's fair game.

  3. I’ve completely topped out on eggs. This morning, I treated myself to this incredibly tasty taco salad.

  4. I will be starting my Whole30 on May 24, this coming Monday. It will be my first day back home from vacation, my first day back in the office after a week off, and the first day of a true life change for me. I have done a whole 30 before, successfully, and I learned a lot about how my body works well and what it really dislikes. This time I plan to re-educate myself and build a healthy diet that works the best with my body. It’s the first big step in changing my life for the best. My best wishes to all of you. We got this!

  5. Are you feeling any better today, Brocha? I’m hoping all that heaviness will pass for you and the real whole 30 magic will start to kick in. You can always eat less at a meal, although that’s pretty hard for me to teach myself. It really is a struggle sometimes to remember that I don’t need as much as I think I do. My boss took the whole office out to lunch today to celebrate someone’s birthday. I was kind of disappointed, because I had packed a fabulous salad with taco meat that I made last night. But then we got to the restaurant, and I ordered a phenomenal chopped salad with shrimp!

    Start Date May 24th!

    Day 10, and I’m still on plan. I expected today to be harder than it was, just because day 10 and 11 are often the days that people quit Whole 30. I have noticed in the last two days that I’m in a better mood and I’m able to work through the day without any problems. I even have some extra energy in the evening. That’s been a big change for me. I’m still eating white chicken chili occasionally, filling in with veggie omelettes and shrimp and roast chicken. I’m going through a lot of vegetables, but I stocked up over the weekend so I should be fine now. Lunch today was a BAS, and

  7. I just finished Whole30 and had success with both scale and non scale victories! Lost 9 pounds, and inch everywhere plus 3” in my waist. The biggest benefit was not being controlled by cravings and truly being satiated from my meals! I used to have to eat something every 2 hours or I couldn’t function. I’d work out 4-6 times a week for 1.5 hours with cardio and weightlifting and couldn’t lose inches or pounds unless I starved myself. So happy with how I feel, I decided only to add back in one item. Whole milk with my coffee. In doing so I dropped the avacado topper on my egg scramble th

  8. Hello everyone! Today is my day 00 for the second whole 30 round. I'm planning to do a whole60, but let's see first how things go with the first 30 days. My first whole30 was in february/march and I felt great. In the past weeks I have been eating everything I can't, and I can mostly see that my anxiety levels are high. Body wise, I feel more constipation, but everything else is OK. It's just the anxiety that annoys me and I learned with my first whole 30 that it is because of sugar. In this new whole 30 I want - Reduce the amount of dried fruits and nuts - Hav

  9. Hi Laurie Thanks for responding. I also remember when I did W30 3 years ago, that there was a lot more posting on subjects. But its ok, both of my sisters-in-law are doing this with me so we motivate each other. The interesting thing about my doing this is that I really do eat quote healthy generally with the occasional holiday foods. I'm also a very black and white all or nothing type of person. So dropping everything on day one wasn't such a big deal. Coffee included. I just switched to tea (caffeine free). I keep a 64 oz water bottle on my desk which is helpful to remind me

  10. Week 2 Day 8! How are you all doing? My weekend was good, didnt stray but I also didnt eat at normal times. And yesterday I didnt eat dinner at all. I dont really have a meal plan for this week, I kind of wing it. I find recipes today make those for dinner and make extra for lunches. Breakfast I have either salad and eggs or salad and fish. I started taking multi vitamins and turmeric pills Friday and I am slightly concerned its cause me to be constipated. Ill look it up. ANyone wanna share how they are doing?

    Start Date May 24th!

    My Day 5 was unexpectedly chaotic, with a trip to the vet that I had not planned. It completely messed up my food plans and I finally got to eat at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. Still with no W30 food on hand, I stopped at Chipotle and got their Whole 30 Bowl. It was great. OK, I admit I was super hungry, but it was still surprisingly good. They have riced cauliflower flavored with lime now, and they add roasted vegetables, chicken, lettuce, salsa and guacamole. Highly recommend! Whatever it takes, every day, I am going to do this!

    OK - Day 3 and I'm rockin' this! I cooked up some White Chicken Chili just before Day 1, and it's been a great choice for lunches. I add riced cauliflower and an avocado, and I eat like a queen. So far, breakfasts have been scrambled eggs with spinach or mushrooms or asparagus (or all three), but I really need to plan something different so I don't burn out on that. For dinner I have more time to make something lovely, so it's shrimp or scallops with a few veggies on the side. I also have a treat late in the evening - a little bowl of blueberries & raspberries to eat one at

  13. Hi! I am also starting tomorrow. I had a very successful round a few years ago, but have hard a time sticking with it every time I've tried again. I feel mentally ready and have already prepped some food. Would love an accountability partner!

  14. Hi Jennifer! And Laurie and Lauren, too. I will be starting on the 24th also, right after I get back from vacation. I’m truly looking forward to feeling wonderful after I eliminate all these foods from my daily rotation. And it’s always good to take this journey with other people. I think I’ll make some white chicken chili to kick off my first week. One of my favorite whole 30 recipes; I’m sure it will put me in a great mood. Good Luck to all! Amy

  15. Hi Jennifer! I am starting on the 24th as well! Was going to do it today, but I want to go back over the book and get some essentials prepped before I start next Monday. I've lost 50 lbs as least 3 times in my life and my relationship with food has been fickle over the years. Hoping for a complete reset and looking forward to making positive changes that last for life. WE GOT THIS!!! (most likely doing at least a Whole 60) Lauren

    Fed them to my little monsters. They finished them all. Will need to work on the texture and the sustenance. So they're fuller faster.
