    January 2 Start Date! Anyone else?

    @Acer ...We did, too! I still am in awe of how easy it was not only to make at home, but how much I enjoyed it because of that fact!

    January 2 Start Date! Anyone else?

    Here we are on Day 19...and tearing it up!! Good past few days...at least from a learning perspective. I'd had a number of days where I was eating too late to get to yoga and that was making me frustrated, but there were other wins. For example: Friday was the first day I had a meal out since this W30 started. This was a work lunch, and we were at a Mexican restaurant, where I'd normally get a cheese slathered chimichanga, eat all the rice and beans, and I can neither confirm nor deny that I might have in that former life had a 'rita as well. Aaaand by the end I'd be stuffed and ready for nap!WELL. Current Whole30 me quizzed the server on every possible part of my lunch selection: does this have sugar? Agave? Filler? etc. What I wound up with was: Sliced steak, onions and peppers fajita style (totally compliant!) accompanied by pico de gallo (again NO sugar and compliant--a squeeze of lime on top). Saturday we had a busy run around day, which included a baby shower. Ate before hand, quizzed the caterer and drank fizzy water with double lime in a champagne flute all afternoon. Classy! By Saturday late afternoon though, I was getting HUNGRY...so went an unusual route and made from scratch POKE and 'SUSHI' ROLLS. Did I mention from scratch? SO good. SO SO SO good. And utterly compliant. Made spicy tuna with sushi grade tuna and whole30 mayo mixed with coconut aminos, a splash or three of fish sauce, garlic powder, minced thai chilis, toasted sesame seeds and some crazy voodoo magic because I tell you, it was better than the order out kind for SURE. The 'rolls' were avocado, lettuce, carrot, cucumber, cabbage and tuna and both the rolls and the poke bowl had 21 Seasoning Salute from TJ's sprinkled over it which was amazing. Sunday was a finish things up day, so did not get to a cooking WOD, but we have plenty going on in the fridge to get started, including a SOUS VIDE shredded pork which we had over sweet potatoes and with a nice salad tonight. In all, quite a win in the kitchen these past few days. Tomorrow I have to hit the studio again...took these past few days off, and I'm missing it. That's a great sign, as far as I am concerned. Anyway to all, have a great week!!

    Day 13 and staying the course! Cleaned up the eating and picked up on the activity. It feels good to be back on the path to wellness, I can tell you! :-)

    @HappyPlace I am really enjoying your food! It reminds me of the first time I did Whole30. Love the pics as well. Good luck and keep up the amazing work!

    W30 number TWELVE!

    Day 2: Crazy day at work, which meant a meal went by the wayside and activity did, too. M1: Tuna with homemade mayo, carrots, tomatoes, and green beans, with a splash of balsamic. So good, but ate this sooooo late. M2: sat next to me for most of the day in my office, until it was evident I was not going to get to it, so into the fridge it went. A big fat miss. M3: Ravenous, so had a bowl of mulligatawny, followed by a boiled egg, half an avocado and a carrot, with a splash of Balsamic. To drink I had a bulletproof that lasted most of the day (I'm not bothered if it goes cold, I still drink it), as well as peppermint tea. Onwards and upwards tomorrow...!

    Day1! Started with a true bullet proof--forgot how much I love coffee like this. M1: 2 coddled eggs, half an avocado, spinach mix, cherry tomatoes and a splash of balsamic, and a satsuma. M2: Mulligatawny soup, a la Sarah Frogoso and a satsuma. So good. M3: Cocoa and Paprika rubbed beef short ribs, made in sous vide, cauliflower mash, and sauteed green beans.. Lots of water through the day, and finished with a cup of mint tea. Woot woo! No activity today, but it is on the docket for tomorrow. Watch this space.

    W30 number TWELVE!

    Full range clear out over these past few days: cupboards, freezers, fridge. Half a cook up, as it's actually mid week (huzzah!). We have enough to get us through to the weekend, when we'll get back into a cooking WOD on Sundays. Meanwhile, I'll be posting food and activity here to keep me accountable...

    Happy New Year, Everyone! So this was us cleaning out the fridge and getting the shopping (round 1) into order. This pic does NOT include the rest of our weekly veggie box, but that has parsnips, carrots, avocados, broccoli, peppers and cauliflower. This pic has just a part of our protein--pictured is chicken and apple sausage, ground turkey, and beef short ribs (that had just come out of the sous vide), but we have eggs and pork as well for this week. After clearing (and cleaning!) everything out, we made mulligatawny soup for tomorrow lunch time, and boiled a bunch of eggs up for brekkies (or whatever) for the next few days. Made salmon cakes for dinner tonight, as the salmon had been cured with sugar, so that needed to be eaten before tomorrow! And of course, there was the rest of the eggnog cheesecake as well... Have a great start to Day 1, and I look forward to cheering everyone on!

    W30 number TWELVE!

    So it's happening. Whole30 number 12 in t-minus 3 days! Over that time, I'll be clearing out fridge and cupboard space, getting a proper larder full of good food choices, and prepping in general. I'll be logging food and activity here. Looking forward to jump starting 2019 in the best way...good luck to us all!

    Starting 1/2/2019

    Good luck @charvey...W30 is a great step back into the nutrition and activity ring. I'm a former yoga geek that's just getting back to the studio, and I'm married to a former cross-fit coach and can hand on heart say the two, even if you're not in the box right now, go hand in hand--even with injuries. You learn to listen to your body in very new ways when you're Whole30, and that translates well to activity, too. I too, have got a lot of ground to gain back after what seems pretty much like a year of no activity and poor food choices (I don't even have the excuse of a toddler in the house!), so I'll be sure to check beck in and give you some good old cross-fit shouts of encouragement as we go through the next 30 days. We've got this!

    I'm starting on the 2nd as well. This is Whole30 number 12 for me...! My first Whole 30 was in January of 2013. I've done a few each year ever since--except for 2018, where it was a year of weight gain and activity loss for me. So it's time to right this ship and get back to feeling the way I KNOW it feels to eat well, be active, and really enjoy the healthy choices I make. I also will enjoy the CRAZY food dreams that will invariably arrive... I'll be prepping ever so slightly over the next few days, but honestly I'll be eating the last of the Christmas biscuits, drinking the last of the egg nog lattes, toasting the last of the holiday cocktails. So I expect that carb flu to hit HARD come the first week of January...and I say, bring it!
  15. Hi Isabell...I'm curious about Yogateket, and I've not seen the program that combines Whole 30, but I'm keen to learn more! I'll be starting W30 in January too, though I've lost count of how many I've done over the years...and I learn something new every time!
