    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 cook it on the skewers described in the recipe.  What should've been a reasonably easy process ended up taking 1 1/2 hours to cook and a complete mess on my countertop.  I should have stuck to my original plan.  Once I got to enjoy the chicken, it was very tasty.  Next time, I'll definitely use the rotisserie.
    Breakfast - Eggs over-easy, W30 bacon, strawberries, black coffee, collagen peptides
    Lunch - ghee roasted potato, chicken shawarma on greens with red onion, tomato and homemade garlic tahini dressing
    Dinner - 1/2 roasted cornish hen, brussel sprouts with ghee and lemon, pan roasted carrots
    Snack - Chomp's stick, cherry pie larabar

    I don't remember tbh, veg and smoked pork still I'd imagine, as we only just finished the last of the pork today.
     
    18th Jan - Day 11
    M1 - Fresh veg from the garden sautéed in ghee, with a fried egg and some cherry tomatoes
    M2 - Probably nothing - It rained all day, I drank a lot of coffee
    M3 - Rissoles (Paleo Running Momma's salisbury meatballs) with a sautéed veg mix same as the morning (Noodle Beans, Kohlrabi, new potatoes, beetroot, carrot, zucchini)

    Day 13, Monday January 18, 2021
    M1: shepherd's pie
    11:00am snack: pecans and dates
    M2: tomato veg hamburger soup from the freezer
    3pm snack: pineapple, dates, pecans
    5:30pm snack: Larabar
    M3: marinara sauced ground beef on top of spaghetti squash
    I had insomnia again last night.  Sigh.
    NSV: My belly is less fat than it was two weeks ago and I feel like I've lost a bit of weight.
    I was hungry at 11:00am, so I had a snack.  I was super hungry at 5:30 so snacked again.  The 3pm snack was just habit.
    I spent time today moving much of the excess and non-compliant food from the kitchen pantry to the new shelving unit in the basement.  Now I can see what I have.  I also cleaned the pantry shelves and one wall of cabinet doors.  
    I cleaned and took stock of the fridges, the second time since I began W30.  Knowing exactly how much food I have will help curb any unnecessary trips to the grocery store, or buying food that I already have but forgot about.  
    I'm hoping Tiger Blood kicks in soon.
    Not really loving spaghetti squash this round.  I have another half in the fridge (3 servings), hoping that I will enjoy it when I cook it up later this week.

    What a morning ... nothing terrible, just one little thing after another. Woke up late, faucet handle broke in my hand, didn't have time for breakfast, hair decided today was a good day to be frizzy, no staff parking spots left ...
    But, rather than stop for a double-chocolate muffin I brought a little extra food in my lunch - today is my weird double mini lunch day so I'll have lunch one a little early and make lunch two a little more substantial. But it would be nice if today would just calm down a little. 
    I was going to do a chicken stir fry last night but wasn't in the mood, so instead I breaded the cut up chicken pieces with almond flour and fried them. I wasn't sure it would be crunchy, but it was. (Last time I attempted such a thing the almond flour turned out to have expired two years ago and the result was a sort of soggy almond mush. Not recommended.) 
    This evening I'll fix the now-leaking faucet. Ordinarily before attempting anything plumbing-related I would get fast food so I wouldn't have to bother with cooking or cleaning the kitchen. Today I'll first have the supper I planned, clean up the kitchen, and then see what I can get done. If I end up not having energy the faucet can just leak for a few more days. (A faucet should be simple but I've found with plumbing, it's never simple.)

    Day 14-18
    Good Morning!
    Feeling really good today so far. I slept like a rock last night, for over 8 hours. I've been sleeping pretty terribly for over a week, so this is really good news. I generally don't have problems sleeping, but with the pandemic, I started waking up in the middle of night earlier this year, and started taking broad spectrum CBD oil before bed, which really helps with my sleep, anxiety, and general feeling of well-being. I decided to try giving up CBD, and all THC products, with this round of Whole30, so where I could get with managing my sleep and anxiety through eating whole foods. Things were going okay, but then this week I would seriously struggle to fall asleep, then wake up like clockwork at 3 AM every night, and lay awake for hours. Obviously, this really affected basically everything about my days, so I took a lot of steps to improve my sleep hygiene. I beefed up my nighttime routine, set limits on screen time before bed, and started adding lavender oil to my humidifier. These steps worked to help me fall asleep, but not with sleeping through the night. So, on Friday, I decided to take CBD (the oil I use is just hemp oil, nothing added). This helped me fall asleep, and stay asleep, so I was able to get a lot done this weekend after some good sleep. I didn't take CBD Saturday night, but yesterday at around 5 PM I started feeling intense, generalized anxiety - I couldn't pinpoint a specific cause. I took a long walk, did yoga, all my normal stress management go-tos, but I couldn't calm myself. I just sort of vegged out last night, and we ordered takeout. The takeout ordering process - deciding what to get - was arduous. I was very tempted to just get something offplan, that I knew would be emotional comforting. But we held strong, and got some compliant salads, raw veggies, and baba ghanoush from a Mediterranean restaurant. I took CBD again, and fell asleep before 10 PM.
    I'm feeling much better this morning, which is great. I did my normal morning routine - reading, journaling, breakfast, skincare, some light housework. I felt much more calm and focused this morning. I'm hoping that continues through the day, and the rest of the week. 
    So I wrote last week about my lack of appetite - I think it's been mostly resolved. Yesterday night I was ravenous at dinner time, even after eating a full breakfast and lunch. I'm getting more interested in food, too. 
    I'm hoping to get myself organized and get a meal plan in place for this week - we have some ideas, but nothing as firm as we've had the past few days.

    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 decorating with royal icing this week. I've got those cookies spoken for so, because I'm gifting them, it'll be easy to not eat them.
    We're getting ready to start phase two off our home renovations, and we spent a good chunk of the day messing with that. Cravings were a little better today but I'm getting cranky and the headaches are annoying, so I welcome the distraction. Still fatigued but again still battling a little intermittent insomnia. Hoping it'll start to pass this week.
    Breakfast - scrambled eggs, sliced pear, black coffee, collagen peptides
    Lunch - W30 chicken tenders, mixed veggies
    Dinner - dinner salad with pulled pork and homemade barbeque ranch dressing

    Day 12, Sunday January 17, 2021
    M1: l/o spaghetti squash; kale; onion; l/o south-west pork; egg; salsa
    M2: l/o potatoes & onions fried in ghee, green beans, 1/4 bratwurst, walnuts and raisins
    M3: veggie confetti cauli-rice with sauteed chicken strips
    M1 was uninteresting except that I felt pleased to be using up healthy leftovers rather than throwing them out.  I took solace in knowing that my next meal was not far off and would taste better.  I'm wondering how I ever came to think that every meal must be a gastronomical feast fit for royalty.  
    My stomach was feeling uneasy at lunch so I had a small lunch which happened to also not taste great.  Maybe I have a stomach bug but I hope its just my gut flora adapting to the elimination of short chain carbs and the huge increase in vegetables.  I'll have soup for supper if this continues through the day.
    My energy level is still not great but I did spend a few hours this morning cleaning around and under the fridge and stove and it feels much better to me now.  This continues my kitchen cleaning streak this week.
    NSV: I slept 8 hours without insomnia. Unfortunately I didn't wake up feeling very rested.  
    NSV: I didn't snack between meals today, I didn't even feel drawn to snacking.
    NSV: I haven't had any major food cravings since I began this Whole30.  
    Pasta sauce for dinner tomorrow night is prepared and I made a 4-portion shepherd's pie for myself to eat over the next four days (nobody else in my house eats it willingly).  I also have a serving of soup thawing in the fridge so I can rest easily knowing tomorrow's meals are already prepared.  Dinner is the only meal that I cook for my husband and grown daughter, they sort their own breakfast and lunch.  This is the time in my W30's that I usually struggle with food boredom, so having a plan will help get me through this.

    Man. Grinding away over here. I wish my cravings were not as gnarly as they are, here on Day 19. I've really been honoring the program. Usually my cravings have been crippled by this point. And okay, watching Gilmore Girls this month has probably not helped my situation. That show is a serious junk food extravaganza. The pizzas! The Chinese take-out! The platters of burgers and fries at Luke's Diner! I hold Lorelai personally responsible for these cravings.

    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 bay. Leftovers for dinner was nice and easy, but afterwards, the cravings were brutal. I drank some hot herbal tea, and that helped a little, but the cravings made me cranky, so I just went to bed.
    Today started okay, and then my son brought home doughnuts. And not just any doughnuts, but these amazing doughnuts from this little artisan bakery near the house. He brought me a black coffee and when he realized I wasn't going to eat any b/c Whole 30, he felt bad. I wasn't upset with him, but I thanked him for the coffee and left the room. The cravings were just horrible after that. The hubs played golf, so I spent the day menu planning and binge watching one of my shows. After breakfast, I wasn't physically hungry, but my brain wanted to eat everything in sight. Ice water helped a little, and it was still a tough day, but I did it! I hung in there and didn't cave. And I got my water in! Here's to hoping the cravings and EATT are almost over.

    M1- Salad from the garden with some boiled eggs and garlic confit mayo and roasted tomato relish.
    M2 - I smoked a big rolled pork leg in the smoker, I take the crackle and fat off it before smoking and I do big trays of potatoes with the fat/crackle on top low and slow in the oven, that way the lard is rendered (and I keep it in a jar for cooking) and we get crackle and potatoes for eating, I just picked at that for lunch.
    M3 - Smoked Pork with potatoes and veg.
     
    16th Jan - Day 9
    M1 - Leftover pork with veg from the garden and Tomato Relish
    M2 - I think the same as Breakfast ( I may not have eaten again )

    M2: romaine salad with avocado, green grapes, chicken, PK gg dressing
    5pm snack: cashews and dates 
    M3: mashed skin-on potatoes, carrots, green beans, gehaktballen
    My energy was low today, same as yesterday and I had insomnia last night.  Hoping for better sleep and increased energy soon.  
    I made it through most of the afternoon without having to snack.  I did grab a snack at 5pm as I was wondering what I was going to cook for dinner.  I think that if I'd had a plan, it would have been easier for me to power through to 6pm dinner without snacking.
    NSV: M1 and M3 were a bit smaller than what I was eating up to this point.  I hope I'm settling in to a better pattern.
    Day 11, done.

    Today may have been the first time I've ever prepared a dish that made the taster physically step back and say, "Oh my GOD" in awe. Such was the feedback from ye olde boyfriend on the NYTimes' coconut chicken curry. With compatible oil and compatible rice/noodles, it's totally Whole 30! Cool!
    (Truly, I'm not sure if it was "Oh my GOD" worthy. It was good.... but for some reason, he really liked it.)
    Also, I just realized that yesterday's Day 17 passed without incident. For some reason, Day 17 is the point at which my enthusiasm wanes and my motivation goes missing. Day 18 feels so much farther along than Day 17, go figure.

    How we roll - apparently I am doing this every other day now - okaaay then. It doesn't really serve a purpose does it?
    This weekend, we've spent more than healthy amounts of time doomscrolling the sitch happening in our big brother's house next door. Stay sane my lovely American friends and neighbours! I don't get that involved - it gets me adrenalin up to overdrive and I can't fall asleep at night. This is a good time to be doing a W30 as at least I'm not anxious - just super SUPER revved up. 2:30AM I'm still wide (wild?) eyed and too ready for a good fight rather than sleep.
    I am also revved up because we're about to put an offer in on an ocean beach front summer home that will be our retirement home. We've been looking at retirement options for a few years and this is making it more real . So that also kept me up last night - we have found our ideal place and we have our fingers crossed. Hubs negotiates for a living so I am just on the sideliens cheering him on but MAN I want that house!
    SO - foodwise - meh - who am I kidding? It's all good! Day 10 almost in the bag.

    Hey everyone, I've found inspiration and accountability by reading others journals, so I hope to add that in too!
    Hubby and I have decided to do a whole30, he has chronic reflux and congestion and has gained a lot of weight in his 40+ spread, it is impacting his knees and back and joints, I have a bunch of chronic health issues including Trigeminal Neuralgia and psoriasis, with some other things thrown in, so we both want to see if anything food wise is the culprit for flares if we can.

    We live off grid in Australia with 6 kiddos, I only shop monthly (I travel 3.5 hours each way once a month to do a big shop) but we do have a small town 30mins away that we visit once or twice a week for animal feed/post office etc.  My kiddos are CMPI so they don't have dairy already so I'm feeding them very similarly to us, but I do make them sourdough, milk kefir smoothies/overnight oats and homemade pasta for their bolognese etc.  They also consume a fair amount of peanut butter lol, and I do make them treats like sourdough pancakes with blueberries etc, I am very good at abstaining, hubby not so much, but I just don't serve him those foods.
    I shopped on Thursday the 7th, so that evening was our first compliant meal, something we eat regularly anyway, nom nom paleo's cracklin chicken thighs with mashed potato and Brocollini sautéed in the chicken fat/ghee.
    I spend the next few days meal prepping all the meat that I bought.  I got a great deal on a 15kg box of chicken breasts so, I smoked 18 large chicken breasts in a compliant dry rub and then sliced them all up and vacuum sealed them and froze them for later, I also diced up half of the rest and filleted the other half and froze that in portions for meals later on.
    I made burger patties (mince, diced mushroom, bacon) for dinner and we had the leftovers the next day as well, I will make 4kg of compliant meatballs to snap freeze and then portion out and freeze vacuum sealed and I am making 2 of the bacon wrapped meatloaves with mushroom gravy tonight for today and tomorrow as well.  I also have a boston but and a huge rolled leg roast of pork that I will use throughout this month, and some prawns in the freezer   I also bought massive amounts of garlic and made garlic confit to make my sauces/mayo's out of
     
    So 8th of Jan
    M1 Sauteed Veg Bowl, we have a large vegetable garden which is going to help enormously with our veg intake.

    Yep, food boredom is real. And yet I'm glad to be selecting from a limited menu. Today was an seriously bonkers day, with a doctor visit, work deadlines, conference calls, and unexpected errands. Oh, and the people in the apartment above mine are re-doing their floors. Apparently a lot of hammers are involved. I was harried all day but still felt great.

    NSV: I woke up this morning feeling totally refreshed.  Slept 11:30 - 7:30 straight through, 8 hours of solid sleep.  This is just the beginning of improved sleep quality - yay! ...YAAAAY!
    I took stock of my kitchen freezer again this morning and am feeling pleased with the change-over of foods this week, even if it was just a few things out (some f & v) and a few things in (hamburger soup).  The assorted shredded cheeses have been taken to the basement freezer because there is no sense in having them handy for at least the next three weeks while I finish this W30.
    Today is the first day of a four week Provincially mandated "Stay At Home" order in what is the latest attempt to curb the rising cases of coVid.  Only essential outings are allowed, and visitors are not allowed into our homes.  I'm feeling hopeful that I can stick to this W30 especially now without the distractions that this order removes.
    I continue to feel drawn to snack between meals.  I believe it's due to boredom, although sometimes I genuinely feel a bit hungry.  However, I will not allow myself to feel shame about this.  My snacks are healthy and that's a big win for me.  Losing the desire to snack will happen soon enough.  For now I'm keeping my focus on eating well.  
    A snow storm is expected overnight Saturday to Sunday.  I need more fresh vegetables.  I know we can survive for a long time with all the food that is in this house, but too much of it is just not compliant.  I continue to struggle with meal planning and with buying too much food.  My anxiety ramps up when I think we'll run out of stuff.  When I go to the grocery store(s) tomorrow or Saturday morning, I will try my best to keep to the list.  This really is a challenge for me and I'm noting it here to try to get an understanding of this problem I have.
