  1. Day 12 at a close. hope everyone is absorbing all Whole 30 is giving them. Today I had to break my day down in 30 minute moments. havent "snacked" in 3 days!! That's a big deal for me. keep it up fam! 2 mondays left! I got this
  2. Help - Day 11

    Good morning Simon! I'm on Day 11 with ya i had a struggle yesterday....found this quote and it resonated with me, I know if I can dig deep in to myself when I'm feeling anxious, stressed, sometimes even happy....I reach for food to comfort me or reward myself. If I can actually feel those feelings and not mask them with food....I will learn that I can control how I REACT in those situation....maybe it's excersice, mediation, removing myself from that situation. Not to be afraid to actually feel. and the regret always outweighs the moment. i am home today....and I'm happy to be your life line when you need it!!! you got this!!! I had to break my day down to the hours..it worked, wasn't pretty...but I did it! QUOTE: "The key here is to redefine your idea of reward. Think long and hard about the foods you’re grieving and ask yourself what need you’re expecting them to fulfill. Are you feeling anxious and looking for reassurance? Are you feeling sad, and looking for something to cheer you up? Are you worried you won’t successfully finish the program, and it’s easier to self-sabotage than fail? Remind yourself that food cannot fill that void for you—cannot make you feel truly accomplished, comforted, calm, happy, beautiful. Then, find another way to fill that need that does not involve those foods. Prepare yourselves for these days, knowing that all you have to do is see them through to the other side before things get much, much easier."
  3. Emily....I felt your frustration! That was a lot in a short period of time. I'm curious on when the disherwasher got unloaded? It wasn't pretty but you got through it! Bravo! ⭐️ im struggling today, I'm craving sugar! Anything sweet....something! I just finished a delish diner: speghetti sauce over 1/2 a yam with ground beef and zucchini 's . I'm full, I just had this nagging sugar dragon! i found this (thanks sugarcube for always listing the links!) "The key here is to redefine your idea of reward.

  4. Breakfast: bortabella mushroom cap with a farm fresh soft eggs and walnut basil pesto.
  5. I am going to download or find the podcast for this None Other! Can't wait! Thanks!
  6. Good morning! I have been MIA for the past few days, (huge project) lots going on here. What I noticed most as I did a quick catch up of the past posts....what an amazing army of support! how great to feel vonurable and heard, then supported. So grateful I found you all. im on day 10....I've had a few struggles, days 7 and 8 were the hardest so far. i made a beef soup and that has been my go to for the last 3 days, my project is time consuming and mentally exhausting. so I'm ok with boring right now. Simple is good! i am buying farm fresh eggs from a friend....game changer right now for me. They just taste better to me for some reason. i cut back to maybe 1.5 fruits a day....I enjoyed a peach the other day....so yummy! I've upped my veggies, I want to go to our Minneapolis farmers market Saturday morning....I can spend hours getting lost there. my struggles are just this high stress right now, I haven't really even left the house in days. I am getting g my hair colored today and a blow out! Such a treat!!! I appreciate all the sharing and caring! Helps me over my hurdles! have a wonderful day! Mooie
  7. Thanks for the link Sugarcube: This is exactly how I feel! Days 6-7: I just want a nap… Okay, so its day 6 and you made it through the last phase without smiting anyone. The thing is, today you don’t feel like you could smite anyone if your life depended on it! It’s 10 am and all you can think about is crawling under your desk for a catnap. As the day drags on, the surface of your desk is morphing, from hard wooden surface to snuggly warm pillow, right before your eyes. You hit the gym, but only halfheartedly, unable to face the barbell with any kind of conviction. You crawl into bed at 8 p.m. only to drag yourself out eleven hours later feeling no more rested than you did the night before. So what’s the deal?! Isn’t eating like this supposed to increase energy levels? Yes…in the long run. Right now, your body is learning that it can’t rely on all those easy access energy sources it used to know and love. Gone are the days of cinnamon crunch muffins and Frappuccinos. Now your body is learning to efficiently burn fat and protein as its fuel sources, and that takes more effort – and some time. If you can hold out just a bit longer, you’ll definitely reap the benefits. (Besides, you could probably use a day off from the gym anyway, right?)
  8. Good Morning everybody! day 6, woke with a achy body, feel hung over and oh so tired. My eyes are heavy. i had raisins yesterday and I'm thinking I had to many...not sure if I'm feeling this because of the sugars. i had a good handful, and a salad with them....so maybe a healthy 1/2 a cup. I feel like I want to toss them out. can you freeze rains? I don't the energy or brain matter to respond to the past posts. Going to take a nap. any insight would be welcomed. Please and thank you!
  9. Blew it - or??

    Sounds like many success for you! Bravo! im struggling with late night snacking....it's a habit, so I appreciate that it took 3 weeks for you to break you snacking. im on day 6 today and it's been my only struggle. Thanks for the insight! Good luck!
  10. Omg....the sloppy Joe's in the Whole 30 cookbook is the bomb! served in over 1/2 sweet Potato! I will read the posts and reply later tonight! Burst of wonderful energy! Gotta take advantage of it! day 5!
  11. Goodness @Delicacious, that's exhausting! Hope the little one breaks the fever and youre able to get some down time to rest. Its funny how you can prep and prep....and you can go through the frood so quickly. I have reserved my Sundays for a full day prep. Takes me all day and being organized with my shopping lists. Today i I had energy, my mind was clear and I cleaned every inch of my house and tackled some paperwork! AND...the pain is my right knee is GONE! I know it's related to inflammation...aka sugars. It feels great. I will resume riding my bike around my lake. Yea!!! I closed down my kitchen at 7:30! No evening snack....a habit I have picked up. Time to let it go. i am feeling bloated in my tummy area, but don't feel swollen. Anxious to move through that stage in gut healing. thank t everyone for sharing your days and struggles and success!!!
  12. Good Morning! Day 4 i didn't get in a good dinner, and i had a late night snack ( 2 carrots, table almond butter, apple)....i had lunch way to late, so I will be adjusting this morning. Breakfast is all prepped. 2 HB eggs, 2 perfect sausage patties, roasted veggies. im enjoying a cup ☕️ coffee on my front porch right now. I have a small garden and I've been able to harvest 6 tomatoes, hot sweet chili pepper, green pepper, parsley, basil.... have a ton of tomatoes caiming and my cucumbers are looking tiny and adorable. ciao
  13. Skin cancer survivor here....your sunburn sounds like a owie, and 4 cold sores. Lots of water for you Cool you're on here with your sister! Nice! I'm doing the 30 days with my sister, daughter and niece...another sister is joining us come Monday. So lots of support! This is our 2/3 time in the last year. i LOVE all the housewives!!! My guilt pleasure! Day 3.... check!! @Delicacious....the coconut also makes your lips super soft.
  14. @Delicacious not sure if this would sooth your throat, I've done very warm water and a tbl of coconut oil. hope you feel better soon. i made the brocolli fritters for lunch....and they were awesome! Thanks @Emilyelowe for the link....side note....had two fritters and they went right through me....not sure what happened there. Took a nap and woke with a nice surge of energy. im suppose to have dinner at 7:30 and have zero appetite, I'm going to cook my salmon and pick away at it. also...I think it was @SugarcubeOD who "shut down her kitchen" that is now my new favorite saying!! BAM
