    Valerie Farris Oman got a reaction from LJG in Official 1/1/13 Start Group   
    This is my first Whole30 and I'm looking forward to keeping up with others walking the same road! My biggest challenges are a business trip in the middle of the month and the fact that my husband is not doing the Whole30 with me. I do all the cooking, though, so all of our homemade stuff for the month will be Whole30 compliant!

    Valerie Farris Oman got a reaction from Joyce Dearth-Babcock Ratliff in First Whole30 1/1/13...in Seattle, sick, terrified, and excited!   
    Hello all,
    My name is Valerie and I'm a wife, mom, and lawyer in Seattle. I'm starting my first "real" Whole30 tomorrow (I tried once before but wasn't as strict as I should have been). I am a little terrified but also really excited and I just feel READY.
    I did wake up feeling like death today and wondered what you all do to treat sickness while on the Whole30, since so many medications (i.e., cough syrup) have sugar in them.
    I also found out today that I'm traveling to Tucson for a work conference in 3 weeks so I will need to do some improvising there - not with the Whole30, but with the conference schedule, getting a fridge in the room, etc. - so that I can stay on target.
    I'm glad to be here to give and receive support as we all get started tomorrow!
    Cheers,
    Valerie
