    Thanks for the encouragement. I have stayed compliant. I am really exhausted right now. I don’t have energy to cook lunch so I might skip it. I know it’s not ideal but it better than eating something I shouldn’t. My husband just got home and he’s in a bad mood which doesn’t help. I really want to ask him to cook me something. He’s eating the leftover Zoës I got for him.

    Hey ! I am feeling very similar to you. I am currently on day 18 as well. I was really banking on that tiger blood feeling. I almost gave up today too. Thank you for reminding me that I would have likely felt guilty. my thought now is they say it takes 21 days to make something a habit. I’m trying to convince myself once I get to day 21 this way of living will be a habit. Lol.

    Day 18. I am disliking the whole30 stages because I was expecting tiger blood from day 16 forward and that wasn’t the case today. Last night I got home later because my internship. I decided to make breakfast for dinner so I could also have it for breakfast in the morning. My husband decided to work a double at work (he’s a firefighter so works 24 hour shifts). I am tired and did not want to make anything. I think having leftovers two days in a row was a bad idea then my husband at work 2 days unable to help. I think that’s my fault but going back to work was harder than I thought. I don’t have as much time to cook I like to eat food that is freshly cooked. I started this week on such a high because I had all the amazing leftovers. I am glad tomorrow is Friday. I can maybe go to Trader Joe’s and get a few things to give me some excitement. oh and I did a oops and looked at the scale. Which also added to my spiral because I was one pound heavier than when I started.... m1 cold hash browns, eggs and sausages. m2 burger patty with side mixed greens(honestly didn’t eat many of the greens. I’m sort of over it) m3 I got complaint meal from Zoës kitchen. The lady at the counter gave me a free CHOCOLate CAke for FREEE. She was being nice. I didn’t know what to do. Now I have this cake on my counter. I wanted to just DIG in to it on my drive home. I know I should freeze it or something. It’s so tempting. I was going to post my picture of it with a little demon sticker on it but I won’t do that to y’all. I think I need to be inspired again. Can anyone help with delicious tasting and easy recipes??? Please get me out of this bored slump I am in! it’s horrible. save meee -Brianna

I made a super delicious pot roast on Sunday which will be my lunches for the week. i have so many leftovers in my fridge. Last night I just had leftovers. i love having many leftovers in the fridge! M1- bacon, hash browns, and eggs. With coffee. my teeth are bothering me right now which is random, I just went to the dentist so I think that is it. I will update later. ❤️ also thanks for all the community support so far!

    I don’t know if your a coffee drinker but sometimes I get my morning coffee put it in a blender with a tablespoon of coconut milk (from the can) and blend it. I even add my collagen peptides to make it frothier. But it gets frothy with the coconut milk too. it’s a good way to add some fat

    thank you!! day 13 ! Today is a great day everyone. Felt very productive. m1- the usual (eggs, hash browns, Pederson mild sausage links, coffee with nut pudd) snack- husband went shopping today instead of Sunday so I ate some fruit and veggies I had pre cut to make space for the new food! m2- turkey lettuce wrap with tomato and quac snack- not really a snack but I had some gold potatoes that needed to be baked. I did a whole bunch for the coming week. They were too tasty not to “taste” a couple. m3- the best feeling meal in a while. It’s this Avocado Chicken lime soup that I’ve made many times before. I omitted tortilla chips. It was just fresh and delicious. I’ve been eating a lot of beef so felt I needed a break. I was getting full very easily. Tonight I ate two bowls of this soup!! I think adding more lean protein will help me eat more. (See picture below. This is actually a photo from last year. I was too hungry to take one today) it was pretty easy to make in one pot! https://www.cookingclassy.com/chicken-avocado-lime-soup/ I was feeling good today. I am nervous about going back to work on Monday. The main reason is I’m nervous to get back to my clients. I am a counseling intern. But also some nerves around staying whole30. It’s a nonprofit and people love to bring food. I even had a thought “I should bring donuts” on Monday (it’s my first day back since mid December). And was like NO I’m still on whole30. I cannot tempt my own self. Hah. I am going to try and workout tomorrow morning. Which I have not done yet. I haven’t been working out for a while as it was. I have a food full of lots of leftovers and I posted a photo on the blog. I am taking steps in the right direction. Haha.

    Day 12 almost complete!!! I officially made it past day 10, where I quit during my first whole30. Yesterday I felt amazing but I knew I didn’t eat enough when I got into bed. I only slept a few hours and today has been a blur but I am feeling more optimistic m1- eggs with ghee, hash browns, 3 Pederson sausages and a side of raspberries m2- spaghetti squash with meat sauce. snack- plantain crisp with guac m3- steak with brussel sprouts. trying to avoid the RXBars.. I have been eating one per day the last few days. I’ve had some diarrhea the past few day’s I think it’s the magnesium I’ve been taking to help sleep. So avoiding that and the RX bar. my goal for the second half of whole30 is to incorporate even more veggies. Try to follow the proportions more closely and make very simple meals. optimistic ❤️ I planned my week 3 grocery shopping and meals today. Husband will go shopping tomorrow and I will prep some things. prep goals - 4 burgers - a pack of sausages -a pan of roasted potatos -pan of roasted veggies and beef stew for my lunches next week. I start back at my internship on Monday. So first week where I have things to do.

    Yay!!!!! We have similar victories this week. My first time I quit on day 10 too! Today is day 12 for me and I feel great. I also watch the bachelor ! I am excited in a few weeks I can have a glass of wine watching when the season becomes more intense. i went to a movie a few day’s ago and brought complaint snacks. I didn’t eat anything. It was tempting.

    Day 7 I slept better last night but was so exhausted today. I had to go grocery shopping too which took forever. I really wanted two cups of coffee but only had one. I can’t even think clearly. I am doing all the planning, my husband was asking what he could do and I couldn’t even verbalize it lol. I just have 0 energy. I do not remember being this tried during my first whole30 but my eating habits the months prior were worse than the first time I did it in 2018. I am hoping that day 8 I wake up with more energy. also woke up with my tummy hurting. I added some complaint probiotics this morning hoping that will help. I am not sure what I am eating that is bothering me. I am thinking onions maybe ? m1- eggs/sausage/hash browns/ banana / one cup of iced coffee grocery shopping - got a more variety of veggies m2- leftover potato lahtkes w/ ground beef and peppers and onions for dinner I am planning this whole30 buffalo chicken casserole. Maybe this isn’t the best idea due to stomach issues ... maybe I will make it less spicy it just sounds delicious. The other day I had a Trader Joe’s jalp sausage (super tasty and medium heat) and my stomach was NOT okay.

    Day 6. I am completely exhausted I told myself I would go on treadmill today but that did not happen. I’ve sorta just sat around all day. I had a difficult sleep last night I couldn’t fall asleep until 1am and woke up for a few hours around 4am. I slept until 10:30am and felt like I had been hit by a semi truck. I haven’t slept in that late since I was 21! I am trying to get through the first 10 days but I know I need to get my sleep back on schedule. I go back to work on 1/13 and need to be consistent. Just trying to get by right now. I am not even in the mood to list my foods. That’s how unmotivated and exhausted I am. Going grocery shopping tomorrow for week 2. I know having a fridge stocked of more food will give me more excitement. Going to lay in bed now. brianna

    I hope you continue to feel better! I have a history of gastrointesntjonal issues. Today was a rough one. It’s almost 5am and having tummy issues. I need to switch to low foodmap foods as well. I think onion is In so many whole30 recipes. I need to stay away from it.

    I used to made defined dish breakfast taco bowls (you can add spinach/mushrooms/onions to the eggs to add more veggies). http://www.thedefineddish.com/meal-prep-breakfast-taco-bowls/
