    Checking in on day 6.  Sometimes, I don't feel like I'm doing this right because I'm not hungry - at all - and aside from the first day of headaches, I haven't had many physical issues.  I tend to be a "late to the party" type of person so am thinking it might all come to a volcanic eruption midway through the 30 days, but it would be great if it didn't.   I am craving salty, crispy things like chips, but it's fairly fleeting, which is great.  I had to pick up some produce yesterday and happened to hit the store just as freshly baked bread was coming out of the oven and that was soooooo hard not to succumb to temptation, but thankfully produce is at the front and I practically ran to get it, then get into the checkout. 
    Made the Whole30 cookbook chili yesterday and it's yummy, but had to up the spices big time.  I normally eat chili with tortilla chips and missed them a bit, but otherwise still enjoyed it.
    I have to say that this group is the biggest source of support and am so happy to have found it.  I love reading everyone's comments and stories - it's such a great community!  We're almost 25% of the way through.  Look at us go!

    What I'm hoping to get out of this month is a general improvement in my health, but specifically help with ongoing skin issues, joint pain and crappy sleep patterns.  I'm a pastry chef and have everyday access to all the things that are horrible health wise, so I'm probably going to be taking a long hard look at what I do for a living too.  I'm off today, but am dreading my full 12 hour workdays ahead - I may have to take drastic measures to not "quality control" the products.  Wish me luck...

    Hi everyone!  My first Whole30 ever -  kind of nervous and excited at the same time but really, really happy there's a group of us starting together.   Where is everybody from?  I'm in Lindsay, Ontario, Canada.

    Things I learned on Day 1:
    -The Sugar Dragon is real, and it's angry when it's not fed.
    -Hangry is a real emotion. (I learned this because I couldn't stomach my frittata yesterday because I put way too much onion in it...so I didn't eat a full meal until lunch.)
    -I depended on sugar way more than I realized in order to have energy.
    -Spaghetti squash is amazing, and I didn't miss the pasta with my dinner last night AT ALL!!! 
     
    Happy Day 2!
