  1. @BlueautumnThis is so sad.. how have you made it your whole life eating scrambled eggs and never had a deviled egg. Deviled is the only way I would touch eggs. I eat scrambled eggs now but I really don’t enjoy them, but deviled eggs oh my yum. I make my bacon in the oven I lay it on parchment paper and cook it for 25 minutes at 350. You can go shorter time for softer bacon or longer to get it extra crispy. After I remove the bacon I use parchment paper to pour the bacon grease into a jar. I toss the parchment paper and put the pan away. No fuss no mess and no grease splattered all
  2. I’m excited for you as you prepare for this journey. I learned so much about myself and my relationship with food on my first round. Journaling was instrumental to my success and growth. I look forward to following your journey through your journal.
  3. Day 3 Monday, Monday 6:50 up with baby. Get him going and his breakfast ready. 7:30 M1 - sautéed coleslaw mix, 3 eggs scrambled with chili powder oregano cooked in bacon fat. I do think bacon fat is my new favorite cooking fat. It’s so yummy. Lots to do today. I have to get to the stores today and I hate shopping. Oh well suck it buttercup and get the lead out the day isn’t getting any longer. 12:30 S1 - 1/2 banana 3 pickle spears and a blueberry rx bar Between the errands and getting baby fed and getting trash off to the dump I ended up just grabb
  4. Thank you for sharing recipe links. I love 40 Aprons I have yet to make anything from her site that hasn’t turned out well. Her ketchup recipe and chick-fil-a sauce have been a game changer for me. I am the queen of condiments and these are sooo good and easy to make.
  5. The stuffed peppers sounded divine and the pictures definitely made me drool. I’m definitely going to need more pictures of your food.
  6. Day 2 R2.2 I eat what I want 7:15 up with baby. Got him to the potty and changed and fed. I was tempted to go back to bed, but I’m going to do some loving movement for my body instead to see if I can’t work out some of these sore muscles. 8:30 M1 - 3 eggs with chili powder oregano cooked in Bacon fat, sautéed coleslaw mix with coconut aminos and sriracha sauce. Mandarin 12:00-2:00 nap. I was feeling so exhausted I couldn’t keep my eyes open. 2:30 S1 3 dill pickles, 1 Granny Smith apple, 1 tbs almond butter In searching for what I might eat for lunch I got dis
  7. @Brewer5 what the what! Yes you have bones in your pinky toe and if it’s crunchy then it’s broke. I hope you made a splint to protect it. For whatever reasons broken toes are great at finding extra things to hit. I speak from experience. It will hurt like the dickens for a few weeks. its crazy how easily we slip into the comfortable old ways when the brain isn’t tuned in. I’m trying to learn to ask myself questions and not just think I have no other options. What options can I create for myself? During this round instead of thinking I can’t have that I’m asking do I really want it?
  8. @Blueautumn thank you for the kind words and encouragement. Yes purging is hard, and the emotional junk it brings to the surface is even harder. I’m grateful for all that I learned about me during my first whole 30 round in January. I was able to identify and release so much that round. I know I still have a ways to go, but this is a process that grows as we grow and for that I am also grateful. Have a beautiful day!
  9. Day 1 - so much accomplished today, yet so far to go 6:30 up to change laundry and get everyone ready to go. I did some research on some different exercise programs on Beachbody on Demand. Being an obliger I find I enjoy my workout more and I push myself to do my best when I have someone else asking me to give it my all even if that person is a recording. 8:00 M1 - eating on the run 3 eggs scrambled with chilli pepper oregano cooked in compliant bacon fat. LO Cajun potatoes and green beans with clarified butter. Weird combination but palatable and easy. We went
  10. @RachelR the recipe for the salad sounds amazing. I would love the link if you get a chance to post it. I love snooping through everyone’s food logs for food ideas. Kudos to you for incorporating a regular exercise routine during your whole 30.
  11. Your meals always sound so divine... you could totally have your own Cooking channel with all this. Lol just something to chew on if you ever get bored.
  12. Yes completely and totally thrilled, and a little bewildered. Thank you and I am looking forward to learning more about myself and my behavior towards food and emotional triggers this round.
  13. So on day 30 I am totally posting “Finish Him” in my best Mortal Combat voice... so now you have to make it to day 30!!
  14. Sadness, Surprises and Surviving Easter interrupted my round 2, then I jumped back on the wagon but was avoiding my thoughts and feelings so I avoided journaling. I took a pregnancy test about a week after Easter and it was negative. I expected to feel relief rather I felt sadness deep sadness and concern as to what was going on with my body. It felt different things were just weird. I had more compliant days than not for most of the days left in April and May hit and I was so tired and exhausted and HUNGRY for all the things that I turned off my brain and dived into some emotional ea
  15. You did it!!!! I’m so incredibly proud of you. Sometimes it just feels good to complete something. Do you have plans from here or just take life day by day? Will you do a reintro I’m wrestling with a start date, but I think Saturday should be my day.
  16. Look at you go! I’m so proud of you!!!!
  17. The willingness and even the thought to consider to provide the care in the midst of thoughts of defeat is exactly what makes me say you are full of compassion and an amazing individual. We ALL struggle with doubt, fear, defeat, even darkness. The heroes are those who press through all that to care for others in whatever manner of form that takes on. I was reading and got me thinking about the wilderness. We all have periods of wilderness, the unknown. The unknown is daunting and can be terrifying especially to those who tend to overthink everything and struggle with anxiety. As w
  18. Sounds like you had a great day 1. The chicken meatballs sound delicious!
  19. @Brewer5 in the words of Dorry the fish “just keep swimming swimming swimming”. The question of the day? How can I make my next bite of food compliant. Don’t worry about the future just get your arms around the moment you are currently in.
  20. Welcome aboard the whole 30 quarantine train
  21. YES! YES! YES! I am cheering so loudly for you right now. This is huge! Like a really big stinking deal big. Being able to apply the brakes and say I did this but it doesn’t warrant me throwing out the baby with the dishwater is hard, super hard, and you were able to do just that. I am so sorry the calls did not go well. I remember when my Nana (dad’s mom) got to the point where she couldn’t live on her own any longer her care all fell on my mom. Well my mom picked it up and took such good care of her. Her daughters were grateful but wouldn’t/couldn’t provide care for her the way
  22. This! I journal all throughout my day. And then post my “captains log” at the end of the day or the next. I tried journaling at the end of the day but I forget the little things that are important and honestly by nightfall I’m too tired to journal. Post 100 times a day! I’ll read em all!
  23. I was so excited to see all your likes in my notifications. I was like oh my whole 30 pal made time to read up on my log! I journal because it helps me process and keeps me on track and honest. But I’m glad it has been a source of encouragement to others too.
  24. Yes! sometimes more than two. I also get the war terms. It IS a battle and a war that rages on inside of us and on the outside too. I feel like the Roman Empire at times having made great conquest but then struggling to keep the ground I’ve gained against the marauders and barbarians within me. The Barbarians broke the line in March but I called in the seasoned battle troops and they arrived April 1st and are cleaning up the mess, but it definitely proven to be a difficult job this go round.
