    Starting October 8th!

    Day 4! Feeling pretty good today. No more tummy issues. And the weather is finally cooled off here and it feels like fall! So that's a huge boost to my mood. Keeping me from killing the things I guess

    TMI: My bowels just had a rebellion and then I got a massive headache. So yeah. Day 3 is.... going. Food tastes great, but maybe upping the fat for the first meal was the best idea. Or my body is just reacting to the higher fiber in all the extra veggies. I'll see how I'm feeling in a few days. And I'll adjust accordingly. Feeling less hungry though!

    Day 2 for me. And I feel you @ArtFossil on the hunger. I feel it most between meal one and two. I only had two eggs this morning left by my brother and his family. So tomorrow I will try adding an extra egg and some healthy fat in the form of avocado to maintain my fullness and energy without resorting to carby sweet potatoes. Overall, Day one rocked! We did hill sprints with my running group and I felt strong and didn't have any GI issues. for my preworkout snack I had an avocado deviled egg. It did the trick for sure. I got the energy boost without my stomach going haywire. Today, I am feeling some of the hangover stuff. Headachy. But it could be my allergies. My eyes are BURNING and I'm sneezing up a storm. One side effect I wasn't expecting, but really should have with how bloated I've been, I am peeing a ton. all day long. But that's a good thing. Flush out all that nasty crap. Right now I'm sipping my green tea with vital proteins collagen. Yum! And I swear it's what helps my hair!

    I'm starting today! I have hashimoto's. Not looking for a miracle, I just want to feel better.

    anyone starting Sept 11???

    Day 11! Seriously! I keep dreaming that I have eaten something that is not compliant and have to restart/quit. Like every single night. Which is weird because I haven't craved anything off plan. I've been coasting. So I dunno. Maybe I'm too lax about it and my body is afraid that I will accidentally eat something because I'm not paying attention. And the beer in my dream last night was the most disappointing thing in the world! I dreamt that I won a free beer and then they serve me some fruity concoction. ew. But more than 1/3 of the way! YAY!

    You got this Margot! I feel you on the stress. Take some time for yourself to just breathe.

    Day 10! I'm feeling good. My run last night and lifting this morning has really boosted my spirits. I'm grateful to have exercise as a comfort over food. It took me awhile to get that way, but it makes staying healthy easier. Although this seems to be going by so fast, I still feel like I want to go off compliance some days. And I keep dreaming that I have broken the 30 and I wake up and it takes me a bit to realize I don't have to start over. I'm thinking I may already be tapping into that Tiger blood, but we shall see. I am still having trouble with fueling my runs. I will get some nut butter to have on some sweet potato with a banana for my run saturday and see how I do. I don't want a repeat of last week.

    Day 9 is going fine! I was able to sleep in this morning before my pup's vet appt. I could definitely use that extra sleep. And then I just cuddled her on the couch until it was time to go. We start her on the prednisone today (we can't afford chemotherapy). But the doc said that because she isn't showing any symptoms, in rare occasions, the steroids have put dogs into remission. I am not getting my hopes up, but it's definitely something to be praying for. Whole30- It's been going really well. It really wasn't a huge adjustment from how I had been eating right before. And I haven't had to change any of my cooking habits, so that helps. I just don't use not compliant ingredients in my food. The only hard part has been planning dinners for school nights. Tuna has been my godsend there. I'm feeling good though. And hope everyone else is too!

    Day 8 No excessive bloating like the timeline predicts. But I'm just not feeling it today. I don't know what's up but I just want everyone to leave me alone and I feel like just talking is draining. I am an introvert and haven't had any alone time of quality. And on top of that, I've had an excessive amount of socializing time because of the start of school and my boyfriends parents are in town. I think I just need a morning to myself tomorrow. My doggo has an appt at 11, so I will just work from home and enjoy some solitude. 30 is going great foodwise.

    Haha Thanks! It's been amazing to me to see what my body is capable of. A lot of hard work into getting there and beyond.

    Thank you everyone for the support! It's been a rough week for the family. I am taking time to just snuggle with my pups and be grateful. Today is Day 7! That week blew by. I think it was because of all of you wonderful people. I am just not hungry today. I was for breakfast and I had a nice filling delicious breakfast. But since then, nothing. I forced myself to eat a salad with tuna for lunch. Doing good though. Getting stuff done.

    Day 6 10 mile run this morning and I was lagging. Probably a combination of things: beginning of Whole30, haven't been able to run in two weeks from injury, humidity, and ran out of water at mile 7. So not my best planning. But you know what? I still finished it. My legs are KILLING ME now though. Lots of water and stretching ahead of me. Hope everyone is doing great this Saturday!
