    Good to hear! I thought my energy would even out more by now but I am still feeling very tired. This started about day 2-3 and hasn't let up. I haven't done a regular work out in weeks because i was having back issues, which resolved but I also have not been able to get myself up out of bed any earlier to get back into my regular routine. Please tell me this too shall pass.

    how did everyone's weekend go? Mine was pretty solid....except that after a long day of interior painting yesterday, I walked with my partner to the liquor store across the street because he wanted a nice cold tasty beverage. It was easy for me not to be tempted, but I felt like I deserved a "treat" too. They only thing I could get was a small bottle of 100% pure orange juice and I only drank a little bit...I know you're not supposed to have fruit juice unless you add it to a recipe for sweetener...but I don't feel like this threw me off in any way and I am saving the rest of it for carnitas this week. I don't have to start all over do I????

    I'm doing great! Thankfully, I cooked so much this weekend I am good for a few more days. Guess I should start planning what to make next so I am ready to cook again on Saturday! I am really digging the slow cooker BBQ shredded chicken with sweet potato "buns" recipe....I used New Primal hot sauce and BBQ sauce and it is literally the BEST chicken I have ever made!

    I use Primal Kitchen mayo as my go to if you don't have time to make your own (plus its messy clean up IMO). They have several flavors that are compliant and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tasty!

    hello! First-timer here...although, I have done many paleo "resets" as I call them, and a handful of 21 DSD's in the past several years. I'm super excited for this though! ...In the beginning of COVID I was adamant about keeping my immune system as good as it could be, but after all the months have gone by....I've not been so kind to my body. I've had inflammatory back issues, decreased energy and lability in mood. AND my jeans are getting really uncomfortable. I feel so bloated all the time! I'm confident it won't be too difficult for me since I feel like a veteran for these sorts of programs and I already don't eat gluten or dairy other than a bite here and there because I'm intolerant to both. Starting out strong today....We got this!!!
