  1. It’s day 31! I’m down 9.2 pounds, which is cool. I definitely feel less puffy. My sugar cravings are super manageable, which is a big deal. I don’t think I ever quite hit tiger blood. I think I’m still just not eating enough or sleeping enough. Today is cheese day. There are a lot of things I’m just not going to bother reintroducing because I don’t miss them. Like beans, and milk, and surprisingly bread. I mean sure I miss cake and cookies and brownies, but I really haven’t missed pasta or toast or sandwich wraps. So I’m going with the theory that if I don’t miss it, why reintroduce it?
  2. I’m still going, life has just gotten crazy! It’s day 19, and I don’t feel as awesome as I have on previous Whole30’s. I think I’m not eating enough. My depression is definitely greatly improved, but it still shows up. Pre-whole 30, it showed up as, “Ugh, I need to eat. I don’t want to move. I’ll just order something.” Half the time, I wasn’t even excited about what I was ordering, it was just something to eat that I didn’t have to do anything for. Now, it’s showing up as, “Ugh, I need to eat. I don’t want to move. Eh, I just won’t eat.” It’s sneaky though. For example, yesterday I got u
  3. Based on other people’s posts I think I’m doing this right (replying to my topic to continue the log). I’m in the midst of trying to reset my sleep cycle. I’m a major night owl (so naturally I’ve chosen a profession that requires me to up and at work by 7:30 am, smart) and working from home has allowed me to get really crazy with my sleep pattern. I had gotten to a point where normal bedtime was between 2 and 3 am and then I would sleep until noon. I’ve been physically going to bed earlier, but having a terrible time actually falling asleep. Usually, I listen to an audiobook and pl
  4. I think a lot of people’s typical junk food patterns got wildly out of wack during quarantine. Sounds you’re doing an awesome job refocusing and getting ready for Whole30!
  5. Yay compliant day! I struggle with food logging, too. My little rebel heart needs rules to break, so I’m happy to let it feel like it’s getting away with something.
  6. Totally jealous that you’re going virtual! Based on the school committee meeting today, I think we’re going to stumble through a hot mess hybrid until we inevitably go remote again anyway. Sigh. Ah, the joys of public school.
  7. Hello! I’m on day 6 of my 5th or 6th Whole30 and I’m doing it differently this time. One of the things that entails is being active in the forum, so hello! I guess on this first post I’m just going to dive right into the psychology, since meal prepping and staying on plan aren’t the struggle anymore. I know I can do that part. I know my blog title might earn me a few side eyes, but 1. It’s a reference to the band Fatboy Slim and a nod to college nostalgia and 2. I’ve always identified as a fat girl, even before I actually was one. I’m 5’9” and I’ve been 5’9” since the 6th grade
  8. Your doctor’s suggestion is surprising to me, too. I’m surprised they would even do it for that little weight. I’m also about to get back on the C25K bandwagon! I just finished assembling my new elliptical this afternoon.
  9. Hi! I’m winding down the end of my 6th day of Whole30, but this is not my first rodeo. This is the... 4th? Possibly even the 5th or 6th Whole30 I’ve done over the past six years. I’ve basically treated it like a crash diet, ignoring the re-introduction phase and never engaging with the community (as you are repeatedly encouraged to do). Not surprisingly, none of the habits have stuck longer than a moth or two and my weight has steadily inclined while my overall health and well-being decline. I do feel amazing on the Whole30 and I know a mostly paleo diet works really well for me. And yet... Re
