    @ShadowInTheKitchen Here’s the original recipe: https://www.onelovelylife.com/healthy-beef-and-broccoli/
    I buy really cheap cuts of steak. The really thin, flat ones that are like 8 for $6.00 or the ones that are already cut for stir fry.  Don’t waste expensive steak on it. 
    I miss my gym too. I love working out and being active. I’ve been telling myself for a couple of months that I would work out at home and just now made myself start doing it. I started running again a couple of weeks ago and caught sight of my triceps jiggling. That was enough to convince me. 
     
    @SchrodingersCat The pork chops are divine. I left the onion out because my son doesn’t like onions but it’s definitely better with them. I love pork, apple and onions together and you can’t beat gravy that starts with bacon grease.

    I love it! It came from a steak and broccoli recipe. When I went to make it, the broccoli was rotten so I just ate the crispy steak. I’ve had it every day since then. Day 1, Take 2 is so far so good. I hope your Day 3 (?) is going good. I’m going to catch up on everyone shortly.

    Dinner - bacon and apple smothered pork chops and green beans  https://nomnompaleo.com/post/77596713058/bacon-apple-smothered-pork-chops
    Movement 
    2 mile walk/run home workout - squats, pushups, planks, crunches and several arm exercises (Momma has bat wings!) I felt good again today. Very energized and determined. I bought a lot of new shorts in my normal size that I can’t wear right now. I did my home workout while wearing a pair of them and a sport bra. Nothing gets you motivated like a bunch of flesh flapping about. I apologize for that visual but I didn’t upload a pic so you’re welcome for that.

    Day 1, Take 2 - May 26
    Breakfast - two eggs, crispy steak and cinnamon applesauce; coffee with Nut Pods
    Lunch - steamed potatoes with salt & pepper, three hard boiled eggs, romaine and cherry tomatoes with Brianna's Real French Vinaigrette (I normally wouldn't eat this because of the canola oil but it was deemed ok in another post and it's quite tasty) 
    I'm going to start splitting dinner and movement into a separate post. I keep my food journal at home and am afraid I'll forget what I had for breakfast and lunch by the time I get off work. My 44 year-old peri-menopause brain is something else.

    Hi @thais! A few of us started on yesterday so it would great for you to join this journey with us. 
     
    In honor of Memorial Day, I made a turkey burger on lettuce wraps. It was very good and filling. I even made mayo! I doubt I will ever purchase mayo again now that I can make my own.

    Breakfast
    2 eggs, crispy steak (cheap steak cut into thin strips, dredged in arrowroot flour and cooked in avocado oil), cinnamon apple sauce coffee with Nut Pods Lunch
    nothing  Movement
    3 mile hike This is what happened today: I didn’t eat lunch or take anything because I thought I’d be home from my hike around 1. However, the hike was a lot further away than I thought. I got really hungry on the way home and broke down and bought a bag of chips. The ingredients were all compliant but I know what potato chips to do me. Make me spiral! So what did I do? Yep, I spiraled. I know how it is when I don’t eat all three meals and when I eat potato chips. I didn’t plan correctly so here I am elbows deep in a bag of popcorn planning for my new Day 1 tomorrow. Sigh.

    @scoakley13  I currently have a Taco Bell staring me down as I sit in an ER parking lot waiting on the hubby.  It’s not even that good but it was always my late night go too, mainly because it was opened and I hate McDonalds and Krystal’s.  Sigh I’m not going over there it’s not an option not tonight!

    Day 2 - May 24
    Breakfast
    2 eggs and sweet potato hash with pineapple and bacon (delicious!) - https://www.thesophisticatedcaveman.com/bacon-pineapple-and-sweet-potato-hash/ coffee with Nut Pods Lunch
    nothing  Dinner
    slow cooker chicken and gravy and roasted baby potatoes - https://nomnompaleo.com/post/4807547385/slow-cooker-roast-chicken-and-gravy Movement
    ran one mile and then walked one mile - I was going to run another and walk another but torrential downpours came on quickly. Luckily I was almost to my car before the skies opened up.   
    I feel good again today. Energy level is excellent. I tend to over-potato the first week or so on Whole30 because I don’t like carb flu. After a while, I’ll go a day or two without any type of potato and be ok. Also, I didn’t eat lunch today. I food prepped, cleaned my apartment, shampooed my carpets and ran errands and just didn’t have/make time. I’m ok now but I do have some deviled eggs in the fridge if I get hungry later. My boyfriend ran errands with me and stopped for Taco Bell. I didn’t eat any so I consider that a win!

    I've done several Whole30's (at least ten but probably more) and even did a Whole75 last year. I felt great and was able to stay active with no issues. I wanted to try Keto so I did that the second half of the year. It was a keto/Whole30 hybrid and also made me feel great. However, I started getting depressed in December and began shoveling unhealthy food in my mouth because it made me feel better. Then I started feeling bad so I ate more bad food. I knew what the bad food was doing to me but couldn't stop and my depression got worse. I started on an anti-depressant at the beginning of January. It made me sleepy and really hungry. So I started eating more because of the hunger and eating unhealthier because of how tired I was. I'm now almost 35 lbs. heavier than I was on Christmas Day and have no energy. I love how I feel (and look) on Whole30 so I'm starting another round tomorrow morning. I've tried a few times over the past couple of months but haven't been able to stick with it. I've been keeping a food log so I could figure out what makes me crave/eat unhealthy food and feel like I've finally figured it out. So here we go...
    Goals over the next 30 (or more) days:
    Track food here daily to hold me accountable  Lessen inflammation throughout my body Break "addiction" to sweet treats Stop emotional eating  Increase energy by eating compliantly and getting enough sleep at night Move at least five days per week  Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day Fit back into my pants Most importantly - feel good every damn day

    That sums up the awful cycle pretty well I think. It sucks when you know what you should be doing and just keeping doing the opposite. Im starting on sunday and we can be sugar dragon slaying buddies. I also emotionally eat like the dickens. Happy thoughts!  Youve done this before and I have faith you will make it through the other side of this one as well
