  1. 5 hour deep house clean today, I am bushed!! BUT I just realised my vertigo has actually been really under control - there, but faint and not interfering. WOOT! I am an idiot though because aside from a coffee with Mac Milk, I haven't eaten all day. I'm not even really hungry... BUT, dinner is roast chicken on a pumpkin, roasted pepper, beetroot, baby spinach and toasted pecan salad with a lime white balsamic vinaigrette.
  2. Well, I thought the weekend would be harder than it is, wine wise, but I honestly don't want it - I'm feeling so much better and the idea of it actually makes me slightly queasy. Went out today and didn't end up eating til 4, oops. M1: leftover tandoori chicken tenders and curried pumpkin and cauliflower with asparagus M2: seared kangaroo fillets topped with chimmichurri, with sweet potato fries, asparagus, broccolini and garlic mushrooms.
  3. So here's a thing. I have had a rash all over my back, and around my sides and spreading down my legs for MONTHS. Diagnosed with pityriasis rosea, which it certainly looks like. Pityriasis rosea is a harmless, non-contagious rash which may be triggered by a virus but they don't really know, and it takes months to go away. I had it years ago, also. 4 days Whole30? It's going. So much of it has faded, the marks are still there but they look... inactive? Like they're just remnants of a rash I had and not an active rash anymore. This can't be denied. A week ago it was active, angry
  4. Yesterday's snacks were raw cashews and half a Salisbury steak patty. Today: M1: poached eggs and spicy saurkraut (yesterday it ended up being M2 when I was hungry late afternoon) M2: Thai curry tuna patties with asian slaw and nuoc cham M3: not sure yet, but something comfort foody - it's a miserable day!!! Maybe a shepherds pie with a celeriac and pumpkin top. Slept better, though it's taking me a while to get to sleep. Weird dreams. I still have vertigo, and have been having some gastric distress - all par for the course according to previous "rounds". I had a terr
  5. M1: poached eggs and spicy saurkraut (if I'm hungry, I wasn't yesterday or the day before). M2: Chicken larb in lettuce cups. M3: Depends on the weather. If it stays dry, I'm going to BBQ steaks, and have with BBQ veggies but if it starts getting wet I'll need to rethink. Quick note on non-compliant stuff yesterday - there was sugar in the water I cooked the peas in (it's my husband's preferred way and I didn't plan to have any but cooked too many), and I added worscestershire sauce to the gravy for dinner, so barley and sugar, I guess. But per the top post, this is a post
  6. Just to note, I have bad anxiety. It's fairly constant, because it is caused largely by the vertigo - my "fight or flight" is constantly engaged. It often results in me being completely unable to face certain specific tasks. This time, it was have a proper look at the prosicutto I hung in February. It's wrapped in cheesecloth and was positive that under there it had spoiled and was mouldy and I'd wasted a lot of money and time, but I just.... couldn't check. Either it was off, or it was fine an either way - nope. 3 days no wine, 2 days W30, still have vertigo but I pulled it out, unwrapp
  7. Meals today: M1: poached eggs and spicy saurkraut (if I'm hungry, I wasn't yesterday). M2: Chicken larb in lettuce cups. M3: Salisbury steak with mushroom gravy, celeriac mash, sautéed broccolini and carrots Slept terribly last night, but that's par for the course when I give up the nightly wine, it usually takes a while to settle. Vertigo is definitely present and coming and going this morning, but I didn't need any antacids yesterday, so that's nice. For someone who eats packets of them, it's amazing how immediately I don't need them when I'm not drinking and not eating v
  8. Update - dinner is red snapper and scallops in ghee, garlic, lemon and dill, with sweet potato chips, sauteed broccolini and carrot strips. Vertigo SUCKS today. I get really offended that my vertigo actually seems to be worse when I have had an alcohol free day the day before.
  9. Hola, W30 friends. So I just read my above post with an extreme sense of de javu, and I'm back to try and actually stick with it this time. Yadda yadda, vertigo, heaviest I've ever been, stiff, sore, living on antacids, rashy (not likely food related but if this helps, it helps). I've been unsuccessfully doing WW for months (well, I've been paying their fees anyway) but I just can't get back into their mindset of 'sugar free/fat free', though their huge list of 'free' foods is good for my mindset. Basically, I'm 99% sure that wine is, if not all of my problem, at least contributing
  10. Smoking my own meat was a Whole30 lifesaver! I'd brine a whole turkey breast and smoke it then slice it for lunch meat, made my own compliant bacon, ham, pastrami etc!
  11. Yup, just make sure they don't have non-compliant oils or other ingredients added.
  12. Peas and pea protein are now allowed so depending on the other ingredients, it could be compliant.
  13. However, I've had great success with just whisking up some eggs with a little water and cooking very flat omelets in a pan which I've then filled with other ingredients and rolled up and that's compliant!
  14. So snacks yesterday ended up being a handful of raw cashews and some jalapeno stuffed olives. I was so tired all day and then evening, but then couldn't sleep til after midnight. I had vertigo all day, but managed a TKD class, so that was good. Loving being back. We have a friend over tonight so I'm doing kebabs on the BBQ - steak, mushroom, red onion and red capsicum in a marinade of coconut aminos, fish sauce, red pepper, garlic and oregano and the others are chicken kebabs with green capsicum, fresh pineapple and a balsamic marinade. The chicken is not compliant, as it is pre-mari
