  1. Love your goal setting!! I hadn't done that and now am wishing I had. Feel like I'm pulling teeth right now, so I'm going to take a page from your planning book and set those out for myself this weekend. Good job, Amy! You got this girl!
  2. R2D3: Three days down, twenty-eight to go **insert sarcastic two thumbs up**. My son has hit the KATT phase a little early, so he's a 'gem' to be around I'm feeling a little grumpy myself, but that could also be work stress. I'm such an emotional eater that sticking to W30 right now is just so freaking hard with all the external stress. Meal planning and prep is crucial to my success, and I'm slipping a little more than I'd like in that area right now. I'd planned to do more food prep this afternoon when I got home from work, but I was so tired that I just fell asleep when I sat dow
  3. R2D2: Good day today! Much better and the refrigerator is fixed. Yay! I'm starting to get sluggish, so I know I'm on the right track. Slept really well last night, so I'm hoping I can get back to sleeping soundly (consistently) like I was during R1 soon! Fingers crossed! Meetings tomorrow, so I've got my meals planned and ready to go. So easy to get knocked off track with all the traveling right now. And cravings have kicked in, so I'm battling that. My son is hanging in there and doing pretty well. He started getting headaches today, and we're working through that. Gave him some of my
  4. Thanks! M3 really was! Here the chicken recipe I made sure the balsamic vinegar was compliant. Super easy and family gave it two thumbs up! M1 and M2 were technically compliant but definitely not to template. Sort of a mish-mash of what I could put my hands on that didn't knock me off course, and since my first round, I have compliant meals often. Thank goodness for leftovers!
  5. R2D1: First day back, and from the word "go", it seemed like everything threatened to derail my restart. I forgot to thaw the chorizo I made for breakfast, I accidentally left the london broil on the counter overnight and then the refrigerator decided to leak water all over the kitchen. Twice. I still had lunches to pack to get the family out of the house, and my meetings were supposed to start at 10 AM. I honestly thought about putting off my restart another day, but I sucked it up, got my husband to help and by 8:30, everything was mostly back in hand. I'm happy I stuck to my guns, and in s
  6. Here we go!! Went through R1 last August, did great, love the program and completed "slow roll" reintroduction after the holidays. Had amazing results, terrific NSV's and, frankly, was a little scared of reintroduction. What we found out is that my dietary lifestyle changes will have to incorporate Whole 30 rules most of the time. I'm actually very okay with that. Reintroduction was a huge eye opener as to what was wreaking havoc on my body and causing systemic inflammation. Through trial and error, we reintroduced foods individually and then in combinations. Some were so bad, I ended up
  7. @Emma, okay....the wraps were good but yeah.... not SWYPO (lol) They were very pliable, and I get why they're linked to the rule, but I don't see these becoming something I can't stop eating. You can definitely taste the coconut, which for me is fine; I'm looking forward to trying them for lunch this week. Rule aside, I do like the fact they're made with all compliant ingredients, tho. Should work well! @Amura, yes.... the two breads I tried were wheat based. Honestly, I'm not really missing bread that much (except naan - I miss naan), so I'm not sure what I'll try next. I do like rye, bu
  8. Awww, thx @Emma!! I do miss you guys xx Unfortunately, I think the coconut wraps are SWYPO. Pretty sure it falls in with that "Do not consume baked goods, junk foods, or treats with "approved" ingredients" rule, and it specifically mentions tortillas (this emoji should be sobbing, btw). I'm going to try one for lunch and make a BLT wrap. I cooked up some uncured, sugar-free bacon yesterday and have a wonderful batch of greens and tomatoes from the garden. Yum! I'll definitely let you know **thumbs up**
  9. Right?? **insert barf emoji** Also, just got these from Amazon. Definitely SWYPO on round, but since I've discovered bread gives me headaches and makes me lethargic, I thought I'd give these a go for reintro. Found them courtesy of my BFF, and they're made with coconut meat, coconut water and virgin coconut oil. What do you think?
  10. We had a blast @Amura!! And you're absolutely right on the food. I could've eaten sushi (the healthier option), but something about sushi in a stadium just screams "trip to the hospital"; so cheeseburger it was! Feeling a tad "off" today. Sluggish, headache, achy, tummy feels "meh"..... pretty much what I expected. The kids and my husband were passing M&M's back and forth last night. Normally, I would've had a few but I had no problem passing them up. I knew exactly how they'd make me feel. I'm starting to understand food freedom, and like Jihanna said before, it's going to take time.
  11. Recap..... Braves won!! Great game AND a bonus concert after the game with Steve Aoki So. Much. Fun!! It was a really long set, and he did play Boneless (which made me uber-happy)! I got up and danced in the stands with my son and his GF, and I haven't danced in years! It was a great time! Dinner was a bit of an ordeal. We got to the stadium, and there just wasn't anything compliant, so I just went ahead and had a cheeseburger and curly fries. It tasted so good, but I'm not feeling all that great. Got a little heartburn going on. My hubs is a little worried I'll be hurting tomorrow, but
  12. Sunday Funday!!! Yay!! It's been a few days, so pardon the long post. Braves baseball game today at 5:00! I'm really looking forward to it too! They're playing the Chicago White Sox, who we would go to see play when we lived in Chi-town. My husband and I talked about it yesterday; he's worried I won't be able to find anything to eat. We tried to look up the Infiniti Club menu online, but it's not listing any specific foods. We'll figure it out, but he had some great ideas on how I can avoid some off the processed and fried foods and still have a great meal. He's seen me feel great over th
  13. @KiwiKendra it's so true! Getting the scale out of my line of sight was the best thing I could've done. I'm not running to it every day, or even weekly, anymore. That's HUGE for me, but I did feel like I was letting my best friend go when my husband hid it from me. I had anxiety for two days, but I got busy and was able to refocus and now I just don't run to it anymore. It's liberating!
  14. I get you! 100%!! What I don't get is why we don't have a hug emoji cuz I'd sent you one of those @Jihanna I totally understood where you were leading me, and I LOVE your guidance! And you're right (again) of course. Once I start feeling better in a week or so, I'm going to want to try something else. Today? I just want to hide under the covers and burn this candle lol
  15. @Emma thank you! It was a nice meal and Mom was excited about how delicious everything was. Dad didn't understand why there were things considered non-compliant because "well, it's very lean", but Mom got it! She said yesterday she's still savoring the lemongrass sauce I served with the pork chops. I love her!
