  1. I need some TLC… thought I would have an easy week ahead, meal planned and went grocery shopping etc… but yesterday broke or sprained (they had a doubt at the ER) my wrist while out skiing for the day. :-( so my left arm is in a cast… no whole30 compatible pre-packaged meals here in France and I didn’t get a lot of meal prep done (except for a batch of chicken-vegetable soup that should keep me going for about 2 days). Boohoo. of course it’s also cycle day 1 today so I’m feeling quite sorry for myself. Thanks all for letting me vent!

  3. Great to read all the posts, gives a little boost on this 2nd day dealing with an upset bowel… (I’m on W30 day 17) I’m not sure what caused it, but I might have overeaten on (chinese 5 spice) cashews… or it were the marinated mushrooms..?

  5. I loved this one: But it's probably more something to do on the weekend, as it requires quite some time.
  6. I guess they were right saying day 10 and 11 are the hardest! Feeling low on energy this morning, not inspired to make breakfast (I did anyway). No real cravings, just feeling lethargic...
  7. Hi all, late to the thread, but I also started my first Whole30 on January 3rd. Reasons for joining: trying to get rid of frequent belly cramps, difficult bowel movements (sorry, TMI), itch on back that's sometimes popping up, continued shoulder pain (despite gaining back mobility almost completely after breaking collarbone in November 2020). Oh, and I wouldn't mind losing 2-3 kg either. :-) Never done a Whole30 before but have been thinking about it for quite some time. Did a 6-week detox with my gym in 2017 which changed my life, before that I was a huge sugar addict. I managed to
