    @CCLaymon thanks for the suggestion, I was thinking a massage as well and love the idea of a movie.
    I noticed last night that I had not been popping tums at night. Actually hadn't had any since day one. I usually pop at least two in the evening. This morning is full of yawns, starting the day with the green tea and bone broth. Not very hungry at all so will bring my HB eggs and avocado to work and have mid morning. 
    Have a great day 4 everyone!

    Hi all, Day 3 almost in the books. Woke up this morning a little late. Sent my hubby a text that said "did you see the Mac truck do the hit and run on me?" he said 'it said Whole 30 on the side"  Feeling better this evening but it was a slow start. Bad day at work where I would normally be grabbing a wine or three, but sitting her drinking my sparkling water instead. I have a friend who has done three W30s that has been texting me during the day and lending a lot of support, very thankful for her.
    Breakfast - scrambled eggs and spinach in CB, Black berries
    Lunch - Well Fed's Asian Chicken lettuce wraps, avocado and more black berries
    Dinner - Rubbed grilled baby bak ribs, roasted carrots and spinach in CB
    Decaf Sun Tea and water
    I am a little worried about my feeling of entitlement that tend to come over the weekend, but taking this one meal at a time. I have not felt an urge to snack which I am thankful for.

    Hi all, Day 2 almost in the books for me. Starting my workouts today as will, I do 21 Day Fix workouts, but not consistently. Still struggled with missing the diet coke, but the decaf Sun Tea must have a little caffeine as I am not getting a headache yet. I am not feeling as overwhelmed today. Not a very restful night last night as I was up to the restroom almost every hour or two. Did not get on the scale to see any water weight loss, a big for me. 
    Breakfast - 2 scrambled eggs in clarified butter, black berries, avocado
    Lunch - spaghetti squash jambalaya http://goodcheapeats.com/2016/09/spaghetti-squash-jambalaya/
    Dinner -  Grilled very rub Salmon, asparagus with clarified butter, roasted beet salad  http://www.abeautifulplate.com/roasted-beet-salad-orange-avocado/roated-beet-salad-orange-avocado-1-14/
    unsweetened sun tea and water to drink.

    Day one is going well. Breakfast HB eggs, avocado and an apple, Lunch was Well Fed Asian Chicken Lettuce wraps (yum), Dinner is marinated flank steak from W30 book (pg 220) green beans and a small roasted red potato with some clarified butter (that I made myself thank you very much!). I also made a jambalaya on spaghetti squash that I found on Google for lunch tomorrow and a few other days. What was hard? No diet coke, no wine this evening. Lol, no big surprises there

    Such a great group we have starting here! I love that there is a mix of new folks and more experienced Whole 30'ers!
    I usually find Day 1 pretty easy - the adrenaline carries me through. Once I make it through a whole week, I'm pretty set. I have done several whole 30's, and here's my tip of the day: mindset is everything! I've completed a whole 30 and been miserable, because I was so focused on what I couldn't have. So focus on all the great healthy things you'll be eating and you'll be much happier!
    Happy Day 1!

    Hi... I am Denise and my whole family is starting Whole30 May 1st also.  My daughter and i have done a version (without the book) for the last 8 weeks but we are going by the book this time and taking my reluctant husband and 13 year old son along for the ride.  My daughter (Lexi) and I are feeling good but my husband is really struggling.  He wants a pizza and a piece of pie.  
    I am excited to see how good my family will feel after 30 days if we don't kill each other on day 2. LOL
    Glad to be supporting you all and seeing how good we can all feel and look,
    Denise

    Here I am ending my Day 1!!!! I am so surprised that I had the motivation to say no to dessert. Sweets and added sugar have been my worst enemy and I have not had the willpower to say no. Something (many things) have finally shifted and I feel the support of the group, and a new willingness to try different food choices. I am also doing no red meat or poultry so definitely looking for ideas on upping protein. I made some zucchini and carrot fritters tonight. I shocked myself by packing snacks with me while I was running errands (almonds, apple and homemade almond butter, banana, carrot sticks)! Wow. I am definitely getting some headaches and think my body will be detoxing for a few days as I was eating dessert with EVERY meal and then some! Looking forward to touching base here and reading your wisdom and sharing when I need a boost or hit a milestone.

    My last Diet Coke was June 9, 2014, before I started my first Whole 30.  Once I have one, I'm right back at it, so I gave it up for good. Do you think I have some problems with it, LOL?
    I signed up for Real Plans today. I'm looking forward to trying it out!
    For the new folks, I also recommend the Daily Whole30 emails - they are very encouraging!

    Solidarity with my fellow Diet Coke addicts! I stocked up on some La Croix so I could have some carbonation. I know last time I did this Diet Coke seemed totally disgusting to me by the end, but somehow I got hooked again these past couple of years...

    Hi Dawn and group,
    I am prepped and starting in the morning. Having my last glass of wine for the next 30 days as I write. I made Well Fed's Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps for lunch the next couple days and then leftovers from dinner after that. Breakfast is HB eggs, smoked salmon, sautéed spinach and avocado. I do have some sardines and Lara bars for emergency hunger and some fruit salad. Wine, diet coke and cheese will be my biggest hurdles, I think.

    Hi all, I am also starting on January 2nd which also happens to be my 58th birthday. I am very excited to start my year off learning something about myself and my relationship with food. I admit I am also very nervous, I have tried to start twice before but chickened out before day one.

    I'm joining the January Whole 30! I had a good experience two years ago. I learned so much, and I was able to get rid of my migraines for a year. And then bad habits resurfaced, and as you can imagine, headaches returned. I'm really looking forward to getting back on track. I've recruited a few friends, and this time my goal is to do a mindful reintroduction over a long period of time so I can get to the bottom of this headache thing. I'm raising my virtual glass to all of us and our good health in 2017!
