    Whole30 take 2

    Trying to plan dinner out with a friend I haven't seen in awhile. She's vegan. I feel weird being the one with food restrictions, but at least she gets it. I'm off work right now so I've got plans to meet up w/ 4 different friends between now and Sunday. My eating and drinking buddies....threw myself into the fire - but I'm up for the challenge.

    Whole30 take 2

    Thanks for the advice. I do HIT training 3-4xs a week so last time I did add starchy veggies. I didn't have any issues, but I will definitely be aware.

    Whole30 take 2

    Today starts day one of take 2. Last time was mostly successful, I was in great shape at the end - started the gym a few months before whole30 noticed huge differences once I started changing my eating habits - I struggled with the no alcohol provision, slipped up a few times. I just turned 50 this summer, have a history of breast cancer and depression. I'm hoping to make healthy lifestyle changes that will help me manage all of that. I started prepping yesterday. I teach Kindergarten and go to the gym after work, out of the house from 7am until 6 or so. This means I can be lazy at dinner cooking time so I made a big batch of stew for the freezer as well as a sausage & veggie breakfast hash that will feed me breakfast for a few days (top w fried egg & some avocado). Keeping prepped food in the freezer is often a life saver! Also made veg stock from veg scraps I have been saving in the freezer. Today I'm making chili for the freezer. I have meals planned for the next many days - took stock of my fridge/freezer and am planning around that. Just need to pick up a few things today. Here's what the plan is so far for this week. Since I am cooking for 1, these are dinners then next day lunches. Thai chicken soup: page 352 Whole30 cookbook but with spinach added Steak with roasted veggies (brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots) Roasted chicken stuffed with lemon & garlic: served w/ roasted veggies (chicken carcass will be used for bone broth) Chicken & steak will be put atop salad for lunches - I need to make some dressing. Off to the gym. I go to Orange Theory 3+ times a week. I'm shooting for being consistent with that. I've slacked the last few months. Good luck everyone

    Who's starting 1/1?

    I'm also starting today. I had a mostly successful whole30 last year. Lost weight, gained energy. Summer travel derailed my new and improved eating habits. I turned 50 last year and have a past cancer diagnosis (breast 2015) and a history of depression. I'm super motivated to get through this and stay on top of things after the 30 days. One of my challenges will be wine I like to have a glass or so when I cook & this involves more cooking time. I know it's just an association habit I need to break. Good luck everyone!!! We got this!
