christine19 reacted to CathB in Hi there, I’m a Newb & starting 1/2
Welcome! I’m also on my first Whole30 (started yesterday).
What helps you getting stuff done in other areas? I’ve found the 4 Tendencies from Gretchen Rubin helpful in figuring out how to keep myself accountable and get stuff done.
Right now I’m focusing on the fact that it’s only 30 days. We can do this for 30 days?
What aspect makes you nervous? I’m worried about making the time for grocery shopping, meal prep and cooking when I’m back at work on Monday. I know there are strategies but it still makes me uneasy.

Hello and Happy New Year 2021! I started today January 1, so only a few days ahead, but this seems like a fun group of newbies and veterans! I have completed several Whole 30s and even a Whole60 and 90...but the last time was maybe back in 2015. I have been gluten-free and dairy-free since 2017, so I am hoping this time will be easier as I just need to get the gluten-free junk food, sugar and other grains out of my system. Good luck everyone...you got this!

Hello and Happy New Year! I started today. I have completed several Whole 30s, the last time was maybe back in 2015. I have been gluten-free and dairy-free since 2017, so I am hoping this time will be easier just ditching the GF snacks, grains and sugar. Good luck...you can do this!

Happy New Year! Another first timer here.
And here we go... this feels scary
Made eggs, veggies and avocado for our first Whole30 meal today and can’t stop thinking about candy.
I really want to do this but I’m so scared of all the grocery shopping and meal prepping involved. Hope it will get easier over time.

Hubby and I are attempting our first round later in the week, I have to do our monthly groceries first before we can start (we live off grid and I go 3.5 hours away once a month for groceries). It's going to be hard, there is a small town about 30 mins away where we can get some top up fresh foods but they're not great quality and really expensive, so I'm working on how we're going to swing it, we do have an extensive veggie garden but its peak summer atm, so not a huge amount ready for harvest just now.
Also, 6 smallish children who I will also be cooking (non compliant) food for every day, so there's that challenge as well lol.

I’m in as well, this is my first time. I’ve toyed with the idea last January but got side tracked by business travel. Now that I’m not traveling and my health took a toll over the last months of sitting at home (sugar, sooo much sugar!), I’m doing this!
My partner will join me, which is motivating but also scary. I can subsist on roasted veggies with canned tuna and mayo if I have to but any of our quick, weeknight go to meals that he also eats are out of the question for the next few weeks.

I'm in! About a week ago, I decided that I was tired of feeling yucky, so I decided that I am going to do another Whole30. I did it a couple of years ago, and I remember how great I felt. I have gotten into some bad habits this year (started mostly in March because, well you know... comfort food, take out food, increased "happy hours", at home, less activity, etc ), and now I have constant sinus problems with a runny nose all the time, I have random aches and pains, I have little energy, and just a general feeling of "dis-ease". But I am excited to do this again! I bought the Day by Day book because I think it will really help me stay on track and help me process my journey. Good luck to us all. Here's to a happy and healthy new year. We've got this!

Also a first timer here, planning for the 4th
It will be nice to have the weekend to prepare for it (mostly doing groceries, cleaning, reviewing the recipes and preparing for "emergencies").
All the best to us!

Hi! I am a first timer and starting on Jan 4th as well! I am excited but also nervous. 2020 has me completely ignoring all nutrition and moderation rules so I've got some bad habits to break.

Hi! I do a whole30 every 6 months and reset #5 will start on Jan 4! Anyone else with the same start date?

We're (Hubs and me) are starting W30 #4 on January 1. Can not wait to get going again. We're spending this week using up food we don't want to waste but also increasing our compliance each day so it's not such a shock to the system.
Welcome newbies! I hope you enjoy this challenge! I look forward to reading your posts.
