  1. UPDATE copied from my own Facebook page on 1st October 2019: Okay so Whole30 turned into Whole27.I fell off the wagon for a chip butty! Lots of butter on white bread and a big squirt of tomato sauce!!! Wtf. I didnt even enjoy it and I got indigestion afterwards.I'm not beaten though as now I understand the pull that food had on me. I no longer need to have a biscuit every time I have a cup of tea. I enjoy coffee without milk and sugar.I know now that cooking wasnt an issue it was my own laziness. I need to prep meals so that I have healthy emergency food on standby. I can drive past the
  2. oh really?? but I was going by the recipe that says you need to use it within a few days. I'll start r
  3. oh really?? but I was going by the recipe that says you need to use it within a few days. I'll start writing the egg expiry date on the jars instead then. COOL. Thanks for that tip.
  4. Yeah, I thought the same as Pandora Black but now that you've explained it differently Jihanna, that makes sense. :-)
  5. its the early morning of DAY 6 for me (6.14 am NZ time Saturday 7th Sept as I start to write) I haven't slept much at all. Tossed and turned again for most of the night with indegistion and gas - sorry Its the second night in a row and now I'm not sure if its coconut milk that doesn't agrees with me... Heck I hope not!! Last night I had a portion of quick curry which I made using up the half can of Coconut milk leftover from the Shepherds Pie recipe the night before. I'm really struggling with breakfasts - have I mentioned that before? Its the main thing on my mind these days.... I
  6. Thanks HEAPS Emma. It will be a whole different ball game this coming week when I am back at work! LOL
  7. I'm on DAY 4 - OMG I'm doing this! Heck I am soooo glad I took this week off from work though. How you people with young families cope I just don't know. I only have a husband to contend to (the kids are now full grown and have left the nest). Trying to get into a routine when there is only MYSELF to look after (hubby can fend for himself) this week has still been daunting - hence why I haven't been back here for a few days. When I'm back at work next week, I'll have to do this at the end of the day, probably on a daily basis to keep up with it. Well, first day of Spring came and it was
  8. Oh. That's a good idea about bookmarking. I'm a methodical person ya need to keep it in order. Lol thankyou.
  9. Oh yep...I see the @names now. Thanks. Appreciate it.
  10. QUESTION: To keep adding pages to my Own Personal Log do I just go to the bottom add a "reply" and keep writing? Or do I have to click somewhere specific? Are the responses to my log separate comments that I can respond to, but my personal log separate? Or are they one and the same thing? I'm getting confused.
  11. LOLOLOL thats sooo funny. I'm chuckling to myself reading your comment here. THis forum is soo good, but honestly I could sit here all day reading and not get off the couch. I'm still trying to work out how to use it all (the forums, the likes, the favourites, the following, and what to do next)..... Its like I'm getting a network of new friends. Loving it, coz we are all thinking and going through similar things. :-)
  12. Now you've got me looking a running websites LOL. The way my knees are these days, not sure if I could, but hey anything is possible.
  13. Ive decided I'm dropping the scales off at my mums for her to hide them, she can look after them for the next 30 days. (it feels like I'm leaving the kids at Grandma's - and that doesn't happen these days coz my "kids" are all grown up). LOL Its great how our men support us on these experiments .
  14. I really appreciate everyone's feedback. I don't know why I do this to myself but I really do freak out at the thought of all that prep/cooking etc. There are just soooooo many recipes out there. At the moment I feel I am constantly looking at Whole30 books, re-reading and thinking about it. I signed up to "Real Plans" too, to try to take the guess work out of planning and I think I've overloaded my brain again coz now Im even more daunted. HAHA So I've booked the first week of September as annual leave so that I can concentrate solely on the start to this experiment. 1st Sept is the fir
  15. I FAILED!!!!! - I FAILED before I'd even begun and I was so gutted!! LadyWolf, Emma and Beckha thank you sooooo much for replying to my very first log. I just hope I'm replying to you all in the right place and continuing on with my saga in the right place too! So....on the Sunday night before my actual start date, I started off with the Tomato Sauce (working through the 7 Day Meal Plan) and whilst that was simmering (for an hour?!?! wow that long??) I moved on to my first ever Mayo, flipping back and for to the recipe, to make sure I was doing it properly. Once done, I gave a little chu
  16. This if my very first ever log/blog and I've feeling really nervous and excited and a little overwhelmed to say the least. I've updated my Facebook page to alert everyone to my very first Whole30 which starts tomorrow 19th August. (we're in the future here - a full day ahead of most of you in U.S.) Six weeks ago I received three of the Whole30 books in the mail and armed with highlighter pens and stickers I've gone through them like someone studying for a University Degree (which I don't have). Nonetheless I'm ready for this (I hope). A colleague at work is starting with me so its great
  17. I'll keep it short and sweet. I live in Auckland New Zealand and was introduced to Whole30 by a work colleague. I'm changing my life from 19th August 2019, and my work buddy is doing it with me. I've armed myself with three of the books (including Day By Day), a pack of highlighter pens, stickers, and downloaded as much stuff as I could. I'm feeling anxious and excited all at the same time but knowing that there are going to be some massive changes to me and my lifestyle with so much support around me is AWESOME. So, watch this they say....
