  1. Starting tomorrow, 9/25!

    Congrats Everyone!!! 5 lbs down and I’m pretty happy especially since I was sick for a few weeks.
  2. Starting tomorrow, 9/25!

    I’m ready for some added things into my diet. I like doing crockpot steel cut oats for breakfast. Especially since the mornings are cold.

    @Ivie20 I think that’s up to you, but prepared to be hungry. It also depends on if the oatmeal has protein and if you add fat. I can see leaving out the veggies, but maybe some fruit. I usually do steel cut oats with some coconut cream and some fruit. Yeah for everyone!!!!
  4. 2 more days left

    Great job. I’m done on the 25th also. Going to wait until the 28th for wine. Stay strong!
  5. Starting tomorrow, 9/25!

    Yeah! Day 29. You are awesome Only two days. You can do it. Stay strong!!!

    @Ivie20 I feel the same thing. My husband is not doing this with me. I’m doing it because I do feel better with no gluten or dairy and need the reset to get my energy back. I’m holding out on reintroduction until Saturday where I will start with red wine at a harvest party. Just know you are almost there! I think it’s so worth it!

    @SineadMon there are things like paleo Ice cream and cookies made with almond flour. I honestly like the rx bars and I found a pancake mix with no added sugar. There is a spice cake I found and make coconut frosting. Honestly I don’t know how people do this without all the recipes on the internet.

    @SineadMon I definitely struggle with sugar. I'm a chocolate kinda gal. Truffles are my weakness. It was hard during my period as I go to chocolate every time. Right now what I do is drink flavored tea with nutpods. Last time I ate a whole bag of sweethearts before whole 30. Afterwards I drank wine. This time I got all of the triggers out of the house. My husband went out and got tons of candy. I've been strong. I made sure he didn't get some of my favorites. I will pick up some dark chocolate and almond candies afterwards. It's actually all compliant ingredients so it makes me feel better about having a few after. It's my way of not giving into guilt while taking care of myself. I don't eat dairy ice cream but I do sorbet. Almost everything I'm planning on keeping in my house for me is compliant except for the added sugar. I'm very interested to see how legumes will affect me as I like eat those instead of meat a few times a week. Only a few more days! Stay strong.

    Actually that is how I felt finishing my first whole 30. Looking back I wished I had taken more time. I think the easiest thing to do is to not worry about added sugar, but try really hard to introduce the other stuff in a structured way. Try red wine or something without gluten. I do know you want to celebrate and I think you should, but maybe try paleo treats, there are great cheesecakes made with nuts. I will keep on the whole 30 for a while, since I do have an auto ammunition disorder, but I will make paleo pancakes and paleo muffins. Last year I made an amazing paleo Thanksgiving thanks to nom nom paleo. The weekend of the 28th hubby and I are going to a harvest gathering at a winery I belong to. I'm bringing my own gluten for crackers and nut cheese. I'll have a burger with no bun and not worry about potato salad made with regular mayo. I do plan on doimg this twice a year until I feel like I can keep under control and not feel like it is such a struggle

    Hello day 24. I'm finally feeling a little better. I could only walk 2 miles today and that took 50 minutes. I know I have to take it easy, but I want to feel better. Energy is still up and clothes feel looser. The saving grace is I put away a few whole 30 freezer meals that I've thrown in the crockpot. I'll just have to remember to make some more. 6 days til reintro!

    @Ivie20 yeah, it gets pretty boring after a while. It's hard getting the correct amount of veggies. I eat lots of soup. My advice is to keep it slow and make sure you go back to the whole 30 for the 2-3 days between. Good luck.

    @SineadMon good for you! That is awesome. I love being able to eat out and eat well. I'm pretty lucky, Portland has some pretty amazing places that are Paleo or Whole 30. You have every right to feel proud. I'm still sick. Went to the doc and seems I got an pretty bad infection. On antibiotics and rest. Plenty of time to plan reintroduction and cook. At least my mind is clear but I'm super angry because of the pain. This too shall pass. @Ivie20 this is my second time around so I'll do a slow introduction. I'll keep gluten and dairy out since I know they are a no go. I'm going to go slow on the beans and legumes, keep mostly paleo. Not long now!!!

    Day 20 I think. I've been sick in bed since Wednesday night. The only good thing about this is I have Whole 30 soups and frozen crockpot meals to get me through. I don't crave anything non compliment. The bad thing is with the tigers blood, yes it is still here, I have loads of energy, just can't breathe and can't just sleep it off. I'm catching up on my reading, doing meal planning, and taking long hot baths. I can't wait for this fever to break so I can do something. Hope everything is going well for you ladies. Here's to the last 10 days!!!
  14. Starting tomorrow, 9/25!

    Day 18 and I get a stupid sinus infection and sore throat. I can't even talk without crying. Drinking tea with lemon and salt water gargle. Steam both and netty pot. I know some people say it's just the toxins coming out of your fat. Anyway. Hope all goes well for everyone else.

    YEAH!! Day 17. @SineadMon I actually am just getting back into the swing of things. My husband broke his back 2 1/2 years ago and then had a quad bypass, so things were pretty random in the gym area. 3 surgeries later he is back working out with me and I'm able to have a lot more freedom to take off and run. It is a good idea to ease into it or you burn yourself out. One issue I'm having is muscle fatigue. I've got energy, I just have really tired muscles. I think I need more carbs and to tweak my protein. I've added in some fruit with my protein in the morning, I can't stomach sweet potato that early. I find that I crave more sugar after the fun, but the fruit helps with that. My body just wants its carbs for fast recovery. Good luck with going to the guy with your boyfriend. I do enjoy being able to have someone to work out with again. Have a great day!!!
