  1. Alright, so back to the beginning! My birthday was this weekend and so was the fourth! I ate 100% compliant foods on my birthday and the fourth, but I did have cocktails. Then yesterday, I had greek food. I don't think I went completely off the rails because the meal was healthy, but it did have some pita and hummus/ tzatziki which is obviously not whole 30.

I am still proud of the fact that on my birthday I turned down lobster mac and cheese, shrimp and gritz, birthday cak

Day 10: - Breakfast: roasted potatoes, scrambled egg with tomatoes, chicken sausage, and green onion - Lunch: smoothie - Dinner: Lettuce wraps with bacon, hard boiled egg, cucumber, tomato and homemade ranch Can't even believe how little I think about food! Before embarking on whole 30 I gave frequent thought to what I would be eating next. I found myself snacking often and over-eating because most meals involved "food with no brakes". Now I eat WHEN I am hungry, not before I am hungry. I stop when I am full, not when my plate is clean.
