    Hey guys just wanted to let you know I am still here. Been doing good. I have been REALLY busy so I havent been able to post. I had to eat out several times because I was only supposed to be out for a bit and ended up being all day. I was able to stay compliant. I am hoping to read others posts later today

    Wow I really did not sleep well last night. It started off well and then went south. I had a real issue with temperature. I feel like I was up every hour or so to pee. I most likely drank too much water close to bed. I had a bad hot flash (I am thinking) around 2 am. Anyway I am very tired this morning. I am definitely sticking with this even though the desire to go off plan is huge and my feelings towards the program are Meh. This is not going to be just 30 days for me. I will be eating like this for several months to try and get rid of some of my ailments and really improve my sleep. I will try to rally some enthusiasm for the day and hope all goes well for everyone else

    Today went pretty good. I made some asparagus and got my frozen meat vacuum sealed finally. I will need to prep more veggies in the next few days. I was up a few times last night and it did take me a while to fall back asleep but my energy was good today.

    @ArtFossil yes I have wondered about them as well. I hope they are still doing it.

    @ShannonM816 Thanks. I do try and have some starchy veggies at each meal right now. I will look back and see if I need more maybe. I have had a lot of triggers and stress this last week too so that maybe part of it. I am still struggling with the munchies at night as well. Would you recommend maybe more fat at dinner?

    Welcome to day 8 everyone. I hope the weekend went well. I slept ok last night but I woke up at 4:30 and couldn't fall back asleep. I even had a small snack to see if that would help and it didn't. I am finding that I am not as hungry today. I was able to go almost 5 hours before having lunch. I am still having issues with cravings and wanting sugar and bad carbs. The desire to go off plan is getting stronger unfortunately. I am getting the blues. I ran out of my allergy medicine over the weekend. I finally had to break down and by over the counter. I have been itchy all over my body since I went off it. This is aside from the bug bites that I am still getting. My face is particularly itchy. I know my face doesn't like the CPAP because I get rashes on my lips but this is all over the face. I am hoping the allergy medicine will help. I know as I get further along the program that I will be able to go off it without having any issues.

I shoujd have vacuumed seal some of my meat and got more food prepped but instead I just plugged myself into the TV set.

    Cravings are really bad today. Where I work they have all sorts of pastries and sweets. This too shall pass......

    @ArtFossil Hope you sleeping study does what you want. @Chik0929 so glad to hear that. Yesterday was a huge win. Not only has this been the longest I have stayed on in a very long time, I usually start eating bad food on day 3 but I was able to stay compliant when an unexpected thing happened. I only expected to be out of the house until noon. So I had planned on coming home for lunch. I didn't get home until after 5. I was able to stay compliant although it cost me a lot of money. I have more eliminations than just what is on the whole 30. I can't do chicken or high lectin foods. And where I was at didn't have anything I could eat. So I went to Gelson (grocery store here in LA) did sashimi and a big salad and then later a burger, no bun and I didn't have the mayo for the burger because it was not compliant, with mixed green and sweet potato. Very proud of my self. My cravings are still yanking my chain though. But I am handling it pretty good. Tonight I made Nom Nom Paleo asian fried rice. https://nomnompaleo.com/post/3195098303/asian-cauliflower-fried-rice it was so good. I also cooked up the rest of my kale. I didn't sleep as well as I did last night. And I also woke up an hour earlier. The weekends I need to solve the issue with when to eat. Because I work at 10 and can’t have lunch until 2 PM it makes it kind of hard. Trying to figure out the best solution. In the past I would just go to Subway at 8:30 and have a sandwich, chips, and a drink. Then if necessary I would do a small snack at 12. Now I need to eat within the first hour of waking up. I know I can't go 7 hours without food and not want to kill the kids I am babysitting. I’m going to have to possibly do a small snack and then get there at Sohohouse (work) at 9:30 AM so I can have another meal. Hopefully that will last me until two. I will have to see. Have a great day 6 everyone.

    I had my first food dream last night and Channing Tatum was also in it. How weird. 1 was I was making a delicious steak on a grill and had it all ready and then lost it. The other was about dessert pies and how since I hadn't been compliant anyway I should just eat some. These things and I was supposed to be taking care of a very young child and I wasn't doing what I was supposed to do. Very weird. I was finally able to wear my CPAP for my apnea last night. I had been sick 2 weeks ago but the phlegm and coughing made is impossible to wear it. So aside from not being able to fall asleep until 2 hours after bed and taking 2 walks (1 - 45min and the other 20 mins) I was able to sleep really well and only got up 1 time to go to the bathroom. Just getting up and started for the day and have to figure out food, which is strange since I pretty much figure out what I am going to eat the day before. Always been like that. Maybe because it isn't junk food I am not as excited about the meals Have a great day 5 everyone.

    @Chik0929 I hope you feel better soon. @ArtFossil great on drinking more water. Today I had my first real cravings for fast food. I wanted a cheese burger with fries and a diet coke so bad today. It passes and then comes back. I am feeling a little better today. My sore throat keeps coming and going which is irritating. I need to start walking, stretching, and doing my pt more, so I will start adding that in more. I have to get up early tomorrow so I am trying to decompress earlier so I can get to bed earlier. Yay end of day 4

    Day 3 complete and what a day. Really pissed off a client/friend. Luckily his boyfriend is able to calm him down after a while. One of these days it would be great to not work for crazy people but until then... Very proud of myself for staying compliant. Although I did get into a bag of pistachios and ate too many. I was really craving my other clients cookies. Didn't want them cooked just raw and also chocolate. I felt like I was really pmsing but I haven't had that happy visitor in 5 years. Wanted to cry several times yesterday. Lovely detox. At least the on and off headaches are gone. I am also noticing that I am not as bloated as before. I just wish the trips to the bathroom were less at night. Food B - left over turkey burger, broccoli, and sweet potato L - Turkey thigh, arugula salade w/ pomegranate seed, and pistachios, and vinaigrette Sn - beef epic bar, carrots, & celery with almond butter D - left over swordfish, mango salsa (no onions, or peppers), broccoli, left over cole slaw Sn - celery and pistachios Looking at this I realize I ate way too many nuts as a fat. I will need to do it differently today. I slept better last night thankfully. I am feeling a little better today and not as emotional.

    If you guys are truely hungry between meals and you feel you can eat something your not fond of, the book talks about fish etc, then eat. It is not uncommon for the 1st week to have mini meals or snack while transitioning. I definitely felt the difference in energy and feeling bad when I didn’t eat enough for the day. Just a thought anyway. We got this.

    Ok it is official. I have definitely hit day 3. I feel like crap this morning. I am nauseous, tired, and cranky. Of course not being able to go to sleep didn't help matters. I got 4 1/2 to 5 hours last night which was broken up with waking up several times. Finally after 2 hours of not falling asleep I did have a small snack of protein and I was able to fall asleep. I will be very excited when I don't have to do that. I am starting the day off with some bone broth and then figuring out what I want to eat for breakfast. I hope all of you are doing well. Let me know how it is going.
