    Changes in Menstrual Cycle

    I've had a Mirena for almost 5 years, and never had any periods EXCEPT all 3 Whole30 rounds I did, I had one 2 weeks in.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    Thanks!! OK today I AM back. Last night I compounded the 'ok, back on track tomorrow' with ravioli and garlic bread. And chocolate. Ugh. However, this morning I have resisted a huge and amazing looking breakfast buffet from a seminar, and am back on track. And staying that way! Meal 1: Eggs n kraut Meal 2: Coriander Beef Curry with Cauli rice Meal 3: Fish from the market, grilled with sauteed broccolini, sweet potato wedges.

    Thank you for laying it all out, after a crapalicious Thurs-Sun I was "back on track" yesterday - HA!! All good plans went down the toilet, nothing was compliant. Today needs to be back on plan because I feel awful, but the awful always makes me go "bugger it, I already feel crappy!"

    4 days "off" for me - I feel you loud and clear. I feel like a toxic waste dump. It seems like such a good idea at the time....

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    Good intentions in the garbage. Multiple filo/cheese puffs, followed by Subway, including cookies and sweet tea. I do NOT cope with messed up routines, or being tired and sore. Now I'm tired, sore, bloated and miserable. Tomorrow is 100% back on track. Dinner is as planned, I need veggies!!

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    I'm baaaaaaaack. Lovely weekend, I'm sunburned to hell, I have heartburn, I've got the food hangover from hell. It was fun, but I'm really looking forward to getting back on track. Stepped on the scale this morning and holy hell, I hope that's water weight. Oof. Meal 1: Eggs n kraut Meal 2: Coriander Beef Curry with Cauli rice Meal 3: Steak, bakes sweet potato and broccolini. Just all very simple today.

    Help - Used the wrong flour

    I discovered on day 4 of my first round that there were sulfites in the lemon juice I'd been using in my water. It was only a tiny amount, but because I was doing a Whole30 to establish food intolerances, and I really needed a completely clean slate to do that, I started over by tacking 4 extra days on before reintro. I just called it a Whole34! Really it's up to you, but if you're looking for the 'clean slate' before reintro, then it doesn't really matter if a slip was accidental or deliberate - our bodies will react the same. It's far less upsetting to restart when you're early on, as the extra days are so far away! By the time I got there, it was no big deal.

    In the spirit of tracking (and I'm going to try to track the weekend, too, and post when I get Wifi): Breakfast: Ham and veg soup (non-compliant ham, corn, and chicken stock) Lunch: Salad of arugula and baby spinach, sweet potato, sun-dried tomatoes, cucumber and boiled eggs with a jalapeno lime dressing (no idea whats in it, def not compliant)

    Merciful mother of Ath, I just found out that the place we're going for the next 3 days doesn't have phone coverage or internet. This is not going to be easy.

    TRASH FOOD AND WINE WAS A BAD, BAD CHOICE!! Ugh, total food and mild booze hangover today. NOT cool. I'm annoyed at myself because the food I ate was actually garbage - not just in it being junk but also it wasn't even nice. BLERGH! Mum and Dad get here this afternoon. We fly out at 7:30am tomorrow, so up at 5:30am. So although everyone else will be on the wine tonight, I certainly will not be! I forgot my damn lunch, too. No idea what I'm going to have. I mean, it doesn't have to be 100% compliant, because my day isn't going to be, but I don't want to go too off track, either.

    OK, spirit of honesty: 2 small pieces thin crust pizza (average), 1 arancini ball (blergh), 2 pita rolls with beef and relish (ok), 3 pieces crumbed calamari (very average), 4 pieces thin pita with capsicum dip (best thing there), and a sausage roll (greasy and not good). Came home, small glass of red wine and some compliant beef and red pepper omelette.

    Following on the food regret, I had pizza at the trivia thing. Bloated like a balloon. It wasn't even good pizza.

    BLERGH!! A co-worker just offered my half a paleo bar - seemed innocuous, ingredients were coconut, dates, organic cocoa, coconut oil, orange oil. BLERGH, my mouth tastes like I just licked an oil burner. WAY too much orange oil, and just YUCK. Instant food regret.

    Wednesday. OK. SO. Today is supposed my last compliant day for this 'round' because my parents arrive tomorrow for our long weekend away at a cheese festival (planned since last September). By the time I get home, they will have cooked dinner, and it won't be compliant. Plus, I've just been drafted to a team on a trivia night tonight, fully catered. SO, I half expect that yesterday will end up being my last compliant day until Monday (when I will be back on track being compliant on any normal day, and only eating non-complaint things as events or circumstances arise - Food Freedom, if you will). I don't have any real desire to eat non-compliant tonight, but we shall see what's on offer. Meal 1 and 2 are as above. Meal 3 will be leftover beef, pepper and snow pea stir fry with cauli rice, unless I eat at the event.
