    Anyone else not able to get Bon Jovi out of their head? "Half way there ohhhhh livin' on a prayer.." Pretty excited to make it to the half way point! I woke up early today and I am in a great mood-perhaps some tiger blood has hit? I am going to add more exercise this week and see how I do. We went to our friends last night for dinner, completely unplanned. They let me prepare the chicken so it was compliant and made a salad. Easy to stick to the whole 30! (They had mashed potatoes, bread, cheese, wine and whiskey too, but it didn't bother me at all.) My friends thought I was wearing make up, and they asked if I had lost weight! That was lovely. They also ate Twinkies for me (I literally walked to the store looking for seltzer water/anything compliant to drink and brought the Twinkies back requesting that someone indulge in my deepest darkest craving), they reported back that they were actually horrible. Now I am not craving them anymore! I hope everyone has a good day! I have to shop and prep today for the rest of the week. I am happy I made it through my weekend stretch at work without a hiccup. I want to try some new recipes, there are so many out there, any suggestions?

    Day 10 and I woke up in a funk too! Not super hungry but eating like I should. Last night I really wanted a twinkee of all things? I haven't eaten that since I was a kid! It is keeping me going knowing we are a third of the way through!!! Anyone else grieving dairy? I really miss cheese!

    Hi everyone! My name is Melissa and I am in Western Washington.I started on the 27th as well! Just found this spot today looking up recipes. Glad to have "met" people on the same journey! Thursday was my toughest day! Work was awful and then we had friends over that brought wine...that looked delicious. Then we fed the kids dinner first (pizza) since I was so late from work that by the time the walnut pork roast was done I was full on "don't talk to me with that wine in your hands right now, I want to kill you" mode. Yesterday however was my first day without the evening headache/crash. Very incouraging. Yay for day 6!
