    Will do! I had a lot of food aversions in the beginning but not so much too. Problem is I'm eating chicken, eggs, etc, PLUS tons of junk food because it always seems to be around haha. (I work in an office so there's lots of sitting and treats coming in almost daily ) But I'm determined!

    Good luck! I can't imagine doing a Whole30 while pregnant. Plus for about half my pregnancy the only thing I could stomach was bread and the thought of chicken and eggs (yogurt too, but that's not whole30) made me want to vomit. I could barely eat chicken at 6 months pregnant and even then it had to be piping hot. Cold chicken to me had the taste and consistency of raw chicken. I shudder just thinking about it now!
    Keep us updated! I am curious how it goes!

    Me too! I gave up consistent coffee about 2 years ago. Not for the Whole30. I had other reasons at the time. I was drinking about 4-6 cups a day. It was my "happy juice." I never felt buzzed or even energized after drinking coffee. I would just be "normal." I could literally drink a huge cup (think like 24 oz) of coffee and then go to bed. I did drink them black, so I did not think it was such a big deal. Boy was I wrong. I had only given up coffee once before and both time weeks of headaches and nausea ensued. 
    Cut to months later. I had a coffee while out to eat at breakfast and wow. I felt the caffeine with just one cup of coffee. I do miss the taste. I love coffee. To this day I try not to drink coffee more than 2 days in a row (even decaf), because if I do, I am "hooked" again. No it won't be weeks of headaches. Maybe just one or two days. It is crazy how we can be addicted to something and not even notice it or be addicted to something and it is just socially acceptable (kinda like sugar.) Good luck skipping coffee! Hopefully your symptoms will not be too bad!

    I have not been to Legoland, but I do live in southern California and have been to most of the parks here. All of them do a bag check, but I doubt they will confiscate a few snacks. Maybe stick it with your friend's stuff. Who is going to really confiscate some baggies of veggies and beef sticks from a mom with four kids? Also, will you guys have a car? Maybe you can sneak off for lunch. There are tons of places in that area that will be able to make you complaint food. Definitely make a grocery store stop on your way to the hotel or pack some complaint food in your suitcase.

    Aliem999 got a reaction from SchrodingersCat in Did you start over??   
    On my second Whole30 (and this one I am doing now) I ordered an iced coffee unsweetened (or tea this time around) and had one sip and immediately knew it was not unsweetened, like I had ordered, and in the case of the coffee, was literally marked unsweetened. Since both times were a significant way through my Whole30 (the coffee was literally something like Day 21), I decided not to start over. I decided this for a few reasons.
    1. I took every precaution to be complaint. 
    2. I took one sip (didn't have to foresight to spit it out) so while it was consumed, it's not like I had the whole thing.
    3. Both times it was sugar. Per the "Do I Have to Start Over" article (https://whole30.com/2014/06/really-start-whole30/) sugar does not have the same effects as something like soy, legumes, etc.
    4. I had already completed a full Whole30 and reintroduction that as far as I know, was 100% complaint.
    However, this Whole30 I accidentally had leftovers on Days 2 and 3 that I made prior to my Whole30 that had a spice blend with Parmesan and I do at least intend to add an extra three days on. Even though it was not intentional, nor did I notice the cheese, I figured I should tag a few days on for a few reasons.
    1. It was dairy. Even though I have done a full Whole30 and reintroduction and know  that dairy is not a big issue for me, I do know dairy is a bigger issue that a bit of added sugar.
    2. It's only an extra 3 days.
    3. Those days are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I already have to meal prep for Monday and Tuesday, might as well do it for the week. It also does not hurt that I plan on eating ~90% Whole30 after this is done.
    It is really up to you. But if you do cheat, read the article and decide for yourself. It is your Whole30, so as long as you don't feel cheated at the end of it, then why worry. No Whole30 is perfect.

    Thanks! I actually read yours as well. I actually have an Equinox pass as well (but I am in Orange County, California). It has been so hard to use it this last year after having my daughter. I really want to get back in at least a day or two a week. Especially since I can walk to the gym from work, if we work in the office over the weekend, and it's only two blocks away during the week when I am at my client! I really have no excuse! I really miss the classes. It's cool that I am only a few days behind you!
