    Starting whole30 6/1/18

    Day 17 for me. Last night I almost gave in. I went to a nephew Bday party and they had pizza!!!!! I really really wanted a slice. Instead I just sniffed it (so dumb I know). Don't even ask about the bday cake they had. BUT I didn't have anything I couldnt. I stuck to the salad and ate protein when I got home. I have a question. I usually have a good smooth complexion. But lately I have been getting pimples and my skin is dry and flaky. Does anyone know anything about this?

    So I did some reading about Tiger Blood. I haven't felt unenergized the entire two weeks. So maybe the Tiger Blood isnt gonna kick in?

    Hi all, I hope you dont mind me jumping on your group. I started 6/4 but my group page isnt very interactive. Just finished week 2 and I am getting tired of the prepping food. Honestly, I just want cornflakes. I haven't cheated once and I dont plan on it, but thats where my heads at. This weekend, I ate at my SIL house and she was great at making foods I can eat. BUT when dessert came out I literally wished I could have it. I went to her fridge looking for a fruit and she had NONE. It wasnt a good feeling. I missed dinner last night because I just wasnt prepared to make anything. This happens to me on the weekends, I end up missing meals. UGH How is everyones MOnday so far? Best, Jennifer

    Good Morning All! We did it one complete week!!!! How does everyone feel? How was your weekend? So, I found that I wasnt hungry during the weekend and actually forgot to eat a meal Saturday night as well as sunday morning. I was super busy and it literally slipped my mind. I know I know that isnt a good thing. But it seemed interesting to me as usually weekends are my eat everything and anything mindset slips in. AND I had 3 major celebrations to go to. I handled the foot situation very well. No cheating but I did do alot of asking what was in things. I'm feeling great. Jennifer

    Mornin! Ok, I spoke too soon. Yesterday I was exhausted and couldn't keep my eyes open and I had a paper due so I needed to stay awake. I drank a strong black coffee at around 6:30pm, it kept me up till 3:00am! And I forgot to eat dinner. Oddly enough, I am not even hungry this am, but Im eating anyway. Headaches are gone today. Breakfast is lox avocado lettuce wraps and a coffee (again). Terrible cycle. I GOTTA GET BACK TO THE GYM! Anyways, enough about me, how are you guys doing?? Have a great weekend!

    He there Kelly! So I don't feel tired exactly, buuuut I haven't been getting up on time in the morning. My gym buddy injured her ankle and its not easy to go to the gym at 5:30am alone, so I haven't gone all week. And my evenings are super busy. It is interesting to note that I have been staying up till like 12:30 every night and if I didn't force myself to go to sleep I could stay up much longer. I wonder what it is that is giving me the umfph to keep going at night, when usually Im so tired. My appetite has really decreased. I wasn't a big portion eater before but I was an avid snacker and I haven't been that way at all. So that's good. Yesterday I was headache free but today I have another headache. I'm hoping it wears off soon. Today's breakfast is 2 salmon cakes (recipe from the whole30 book) with a basil dipping sauce, and half an avocado. I'm not even hungry for breakfast yet. I'm sort of nervous for the weekend, that's usually when I do the most "boredom" snacking.

    Hi all! So, yesterday was my anniversary and my husband decided to make us dinner. It was also my nephews bday and we had to go there first (family obligations lol ) and ended up not getting home until 9pm. I hadn't eaten since eating an apple at 3:30, I wasn't terribly hungry but I knew I had to eat something but at the same time it was super late. Anyway my husband made steaks and when he set it all up I realized he used BBQ sauce on them! I totally didn't want to upest him so I kinda tried to push the sauce off with my fork without seeming too obvious. I hope that didn't set me back with the "sugar dragon", I was so looking forward to being sugar free for the first time in my life. Feeling good today, no headache! My breakfast was lettuce wrap with lox & guacamole! Believe it or not one was super filling but I ate 2 because I wanted to have enough protein. Cold brewed black coffee, I never imagined would be so good. Glad everyone is doing good!

    Coconut Wraps etc..??

    Hi all I'm day 2 so all is great. I feel great (minus the headache) and don't feel I am missing anything. So, I read once upon a time coconut wraps were ok but then it was removed from the Compliant list. SO, I'm trying to get the concept? Theoretically, there is nothing wrong with many food items but once you create a type of food product (ie wrap, pancake, date balls) its no longer compliant. I still don't get it? Is it because we are trying to reset the mind on how we feel about foods? Thanks for the help
