Hi everyone ! I am on day 8 and starting to feel less headachy and grumpy. I have been having bursts of energy! I think about food all of the time but I'm a good way-- like-- instead of arguing with myself about a stupid piece of chocolate at work I am able to say- okay, it's only 30 days! There is evidence to support the idea that I will tame my sugar dragon after the whole30 and not have these awful arguments and concurrent shame and guilt about sugar binges.
I am also 52 Michaela and my partner said he wants to join me on my journey, too! Which is amazing because last weekend he ate sugar cookies in front of me and chips and popcorn and I didn't even hate him I was just like-- okay, honey. I feel like I'm going to get a handle on that junk food jones of mine but "you do you" and by the way have this delicious healthy dinner I made-- as much of it as you want!
Good luck! I made up a compliant recipe tonight-- I even broiled the shrimp in my toaster oven and my 13 year old loved it!
