  1. R3D8 was a fairly decent day despite the nasty headache. I was hoping this part of the W30 would be past by now, but it's not and it's frustrating. They are hitting me about the same time everyday and, to be honest, I'm not sure what's causing them. I check my water intake to make sure I am getting that, and that doesn't seem to be the issue. Hopefully they will pass soon. I have noticed my joint pain is improving and I am starting to sleep better. The chicken shawarma did not go as expected. I had planned to do it in the rotisserie, but I changed my mind last minute and decided to
  2. R3D7 is done and Week One is in the bag!! I feel like making it these past 7 days is an NSV in itself. It's been a challenge for me not falling back in to automatic routines of eating. Because of the cravings, my husband did the grocery shopping for me today. He's so awesome! I slow roasted a pork shoulder all day, made some more ghee, prepared some homemade spice blends, and made the chicken shawarma marinade. The chicken will marinate overnight and I'll skewer it in the rotisserie tomorrow. Everything is ready for the week! I also made some sugar cookie dough so I can practice decorati
  3. Kudos to you for not "sampling"!! Those fritters sound amazing!!
  4. R3D5 and R3D6 have been a challenge. I'm in to the EATT "eat all the things" phase. Cravings are wicked out of whack, and I'm having to be ultra careful right now. Headaches are intermittent, and I'm getting fatigued during the day with bouts of insomnia at night. I know this will pass, but it sucks right now. Friday kept me busy during the work day, so that was good and kept my cravings distracted. After work, my DIL and I went for mani/pedi, and that was some good girl time. We ended up being the only two folks there, which was extra nice, and that distraction also kept my cravings at
  5. Definitely hope you are feeling better! And if you have a link to your website, I would love to see more of your food pics.
  6. I agree with what Shadow said; your meals sound delicious! I also keep forgetting to ask you the name of that soup place in ATL with the Whole 30 compliant soups. I have been craving some yummy soup, and if there's a good place in the area, I would love to try it!
  7. R3D4 was a very busy day. Conference call after conference call, and calls from home office co-workers freaking out about our new partners. I don't mind being a sounding board but it was a lot today, and this is the type of day that would totally throw me in to destructive eating habits. Food prep saved me today, and I was very grateful to myself for having done it this past weekend. Otherwise, today could've seriously derailed me. I had scheduled a facial late in the day, which I desperately needed and that actually got me to relax. I let the family deal with leftovers so I could have my
  8. R3D3: Man, am I tired, and it's making me feel discombobulated. I was completely distracted during my conference calls today, I had to ask my co-worker to repeat herself and my momentum (what I had of it) was gone after lunch. The headaches have stopped and the cravings are getting a little better, but because I'm sort of feeling "out of it", I'm catching myself as I start going through the motions of my non-Whole 30 habits. Like stopping myself from grabbing the french onion dip and chips for a snack. I'm not being hard on myself because I understand I'm just at the beginning of my 30 days, b
  9. Congratulations on your engagement!! My son just got married in December. It was very small with family and just a few friends, and it was just such a good time. Have fun with all the planning; so very happy for you!!
  10. This statement absolutely spoke to my heart. I struggle with this daily and do feel like W30 is what I need to help me learn a better reward/comfort outlet.
  11. R3D2: Day 1 restarted well. I had appointments out all day and didn't get back home until dinner time, so I was just completely exhausted. The appointments didn't run as expected, so I wasn't able to get back home for lunch, but thanks to food prep, I was able to grab something quick and get back out in traffic. Day 2 has been nice and quiet. I got a lot of work done both for home and office, and I liked not feeling rushed at meal time. My stomach finally feels like I've gotten past the soybean oil incident of last week. I am feeling tired and have a little headache, but overall not too
  12. R3D0: Today has been a good prep day. I got my menu planned for the week, made ghee and got my lunches packed up in the refrigerator. Spice pantry is now cleaned out of any non-compliant ingredients, and I was very happy to have my husband's help with this project. He helped me when I got sick from the soybean oil the other day, so he felt vested in the project. He also found out one of my vitamins had soybean oil in it, and I had NO idea. I had told my doc a while back about how the Vitamin D3 supplement upset my stomach, but he felt the benefits outweighed the side effects, but now we're goi
  13. Thank you! I didn't take in to account the NSV aspect of yesterday; I was just so ticked off, lol. I really appreciate you bringing that in to focus for me!
  14. R3D4 - I am so dang mad at myself this morning. I woke up this morning feeling not so great with stomach bloating and discomfort, and I immediately recognized the signs. So I went to the kitchen and checked the spices from last night's dinner and, dammit. there is soybean oil in the curry powder. I thought I had gone through my spice pantry and checked all of the spices I use and replaced those ones that had non-compliant ingredients; apparently not. I feel like absolute crap; soybean oil is a major inflammatory trigger for my body and gives me horrible upset stomach and pain. I am
  15. The pumpkin souffle sounds delicious!! Do you have a recipe you can post? I would love to try this!!
