    Day 17: I needed about 10 more hours of sleep Yesterday was insanely busy and today is the same. Husband and I made it to the grocery store last night and have delicious plans for dinner. I'm ever so grateful. Tomorrow and Friday, I don't work. It'll be moving, unpacking, school, and then Friday afternoon is my close date. I'm so ready to move forward with this process and be done with the two-house situation. We ran out of sweet potatoes over the weekend, and I have missed them so much. I baked more this morning and look forward to dinner when I get to enjoy one. I'm not supposed to eat strawberries, but last night at Whole Foods they were looking so delightful. I ate one last night and y'all. It was the most decadent little strawberry I've ever eaten. I had no adverse reaction to it, which is good. I may have another one after dinner. Breakfast: Scrambled eggs; black coffee Lunch: mostly-lettuce salad, compliant ranch dressing, bacon; un-fizzy water Dinner: fat sausage on the grill; veggies on the grill; a strawberry Movement: 12k steps; packing at the house

    That really sucks about the physicians giving you the run around. Is it possible to see a different endocrinologist?

    Day 16: I am 48% complete with this thing, y'all Last night, my cat, who normally just wants to sleep, decided he wanted in and out. And in and out. And in. And then...out. I am really tired and more than a little grumpy, as the sleep has been lovely thus far. Breakfast: scrambled eggs; black coffee Lunch: Leftover sausage, leftover pancetta, salad Dinner: grilled fish, grilled squash; fizzy water Movement: packing at the house, a run on Green Mountain, walking to 12k steps

    I empathize deeply with your frustration about Dr's and their, often complete, disregard for your health and well-being. I have to fight aggressively to have Dr's hear me and address my issues.

    If you have financial bandwidth for a RealPlans subscription, it is worth every penny. I have a long list of items I cannot eat and the app lets me select which items to always exclude. Good luck with your prep!

    Day 15: I remained in compliance all weekend. Friday night at "Wicked" I enjoyed fizzy water with lime, in a fancy glass because the bartender was sweet. The show was amazing, and it was 10/10 worth getting out. My daughter loved it. Saturday involved a 6+ mile hike with 3k feet of elevation gain, which was amazing. The rest of the weekend involved a lot of gardening, some school work prep for me. It was busy, and I could use a weekend to recover from my weekend, but here we are. Monday again. The weekend was so busy I made no time to go to the grocery store. So the kitchen is close to empty. Fortunately I am zero hungry today. This week I work Monday to Wednesday. I also need to fully pack my other house. Thursday, the movers come. Friday, I close the house sale and am finally, FINALLY finished moving to the new house. I started my grad degree capstone course today, and the workload is about three times as much as every other course in my grad degree, so that's the stuff of nightmares. Assuming I do the bare minimum of writing for each assignment it will still be about 200 pages of written content in the next 8 weeks. I'm already tired. I am finding routine in the new eating habits. Everyone else goes for a soda, I grab a fizzy water. Everyone else goes for dessert, I go for a walk with Audible playing. I like my coffee black, and drink less of it now than I used to. I don't miss sweets as much as I thought, and that's a relief. I am losing weight, although I can't step on the scale to prove it. I feel amazing, and that's a nice. I miss the foods I miss, but I do NOT miss the way they made me feel. Breakfast: egg and ham frittatas; black coffee Lunch: leftover grilled chicken and salad Dinner: grilled salmon and grilled veggies (THANK GOD. It is warm and dry this week, so we will eat off of the grill all week!)

    Day 12: Yesterday, my husband, whom I love, brought home some naan to have with his curry. And the kids all had desserts from the Whole Foods deli. Y'all. Some of those desserts are still in the fridge looking tempting. I am working hard to avoid the fridge today. My husband, wisely, hid the naan. All three kids go back to their other parent's houses on Monday, and my person has agreed to keep the kitchen in compliance while they're away, which is a relief. Breakfast: Taco mince, leftover cauli-mash, egg + ham frittata, black coffee Lunch: Taco mince, leftover cauli-mash, sweet potato, iced tea Dinner: Leftover beef curry and cauli-mash; poached eggs Reflections: Tonight I am taking my daughter to "Wicked." Our normal pattern for going out is to have dinner at a restaurant, then go to the show, and at intermission buy a cookie. Y'all. That is obviously not going to work for today. So, dinner at home, and I'll still buy my daughter a cookie at intermission. I'll give myself permission for fizzy water if there are any available at the theatre.

    I wouldn't even hesitate to keep going. Go enjoy yourself.

    I have MCAS and a known latex allergy. Any fruits that have a similar protein profile to latex need to be avoided. This includes bananas, tropical citrus fruits (pineapple, kiwi, mango, passion fruit, papaya), avocados, strawberries, figs, apples, every type of melon. I also react poorly to tomatoes, carrots, celery, and soy. I also have birch-fruit allergy, which means no almonds or hazelnuts, or any stone fruits (apricot, cherry, peach, plum, pear).

    I FEEL THIS SO MUCH. I'm sad they weren't able to just be supportive of people handling their circumstances. I'd have politely shared with them that my physicians recommended this process to me.

    Reflections on Yesterday: Yesterday sucked from start to finish. It ended with me getting all my steps in during a sleet/snow storm. Basically the only way yesterday could have ended. At least it is over. Day 11: Today is a better day Breakfast: leftover beef curry with herbed cauli-hash; black coffee; fizzy water Lunch: Leftover chicken + kale soup with newly added ground beef; more fizzy water Dinner: Roasted dijon (not actually dijon) chicken & green beans; MORE fizzy water Reflections: I am going to allow yesterday to exist as it did - horribly - and move forward with today. I am able to eat about half of the portion sizes dictated by the program without hunger between meals, and I am choosing to let that be a thing. I used to struggle with binge eating, and am unwilling to try to force food into my face. If I prepare a meal and cannot finish it, the remnants wait. If I get hungry before the next meal, those remnants are the snack option available to me. This is working for me. I'm on day four of craving a banana with peanut butter, or a banana with almond butter, or a banana with literally any nut butter please gods so delicious. I'm not supposed to eat bananas, peanuts, any form of tree nut (except coconut) and very few seeds, if any. So basically this craving is a nice pile of Nope. But seriously?! Day FOUR of this craving?? I'd love to not have this craving anymore. Crave a chicken wing or something. Denying myself pseudo-healthy food seems ridiculous. I'm really excited for this winter storm to go away. I'm very hopeful this is the last one for the season.

    Thanks for the support, y'all. Today is already a much, much better day.

    I'm not even trying to eat out. We have friends over to our house so that I can sponsor dinner which works for my needs, without having to henpeck food arrangements. I don't think I'd survive walking into a restaurant. I have to hold my breath and skitter past the deli section at the grocery store, where they are selling freshly baked pizzas and calzones, and nice fat rotisserie chickens... There may be restaurants that advertise being Whole30 compliant, or having Whole30 compliant menu items?

    My daughter has a phone, but it's restricted (she cannot download apps without permission). She bikes to school, and has for several years, so the phone is an essential function. It's about 4 mile one way to her school via bike. Her laptop access is equally restricted. Possibly it's easier for me to maintain control because there has never been free-access to her technology. I have a deep distrust of other humans. She would be fine; but other people suck. I think when it comes to technology there are no right answers, and no easy answers.

    Day 4,573 of my captivity: I hate everything and everything sucks and there is no such thing as joy ever again. Breakfast: coffee with coconut cream; two egg & ham frittatas, leftover greens Lunch: fizzy water; one egg & ham frittata, leftover greens, sweet potato coated in bacon fat Dinner: Paleo Indian Beef Curry with Herbed Cauli-hash Thoughts & Reflections: Today sucks. I'm 99% it's hormonal, but that knowledge helps exactly none. I am grouchy, and feel like a malevolent cloud just waiting to unleash Armageddon on an unsuspecting victim. Maybe it's the final winter storm that's currently coating everything in frigid rain. Maybe it's the snow forecast for tomorrow. Maybe it's the fact that there's a thing of muffins sitting on the kitchen counter that I have to continue not eating every single time I walk past them. Who knows. But today? Not the best day. I am now 30% complete with this experiment. I thought for a brief moment I could stop on Memorial day, instead, but that is only 28 days, rather than 30 (decidedly fewer than my self-prescribed 33). Sigh. So. Since Memorial Day wouldn't let me finish at 30 days I may as well continue. Annoying. I am very hopeful that tomorrow is a better mental health space than today.
