    You most certainly can. Also remember that you can't always trust your hunger signals while things adjust. But if you just can't eat anymore saving it and eating it as a mini meal is a great option. Your body will adjust.

    I am! I think one more would tip the ship. I remember reading in something Melissa posted that Dallas can hold more eggs when he is very hungry though.

    We as moderators see a lot of confusion around here on what constitutes a serving of eggs when eggs are your primary protein source. We tell you as many as you can hold in your hand without dropping but I still don't think people actually try this. So I thought I'd post a visual for you folks. It would be fun if other people added their own pictures too. Try the experiment.

    Yes that is correct. Just to further clarify on day 4 legumes is the only non-Whole30 item you have. On day 7 alcohol is the only non-Whole30 item you have. In other words you don't have dairy (or legumes or alcohol) again (even if you are fine with it) until all your reintroductions are complete.

    Before you give up maybe give this one a try. 
     
    The only time I've had it fail on me was when I had the blender on too high a setting. You want to use the lowest possible setting.

    The point is to test things as isolated from each other as possible. On the flip side if you have an extreme reaction to something you might want to add more than 2 days of compliance before you introduce something again to ensure you are feeling as good as you were when you started. You really want the best data possible so you can make well informed decisions in your post Whole30 world. Also for many that don't have immediate reactions there can be a build up over time reaction. Take me for example. I had no obvious physical issues to anything I introduced (except when I've accidentally had soy - makes me angry). However I know that if I were to put gluten back in my diet on a regular basis I would start feeling foggy in the afternoons again. I also have found out that eating non-gluten grains regularly makes me feel pudgy and sluggish after a while. Knowing these things helps me decide if something I might eat is worth it or not.

    Well you are allowed to have 2 servings of protein if you need it. This would be a question for the top dogs in all seriousness. I'd be scared I'd drop one of my very expensive pastured eggs trying to build a pyramid. And my floors are not really clean right now...and I would scoop it up and eat it anyway.

    Immersion  is the way to go.. No need for room temp egg..  I use a wide mouth mason jar.. Leave the immersion blender on the bottom for a little bit then slowly pull it up… You can watch it coming together..  Doesn't take long at all… Takes longer to wash the stick blender than it does to make the mayo

    So, the morning after the night before Avocado and I got it on again....

    And I hate to say this but I think Avocado and I might be so over we need a new word for over......   

    Today should have been a quiet day at the office. A chance for me to get caught up on a shed-load of work that's been pushed to one side due to other priorities, and yes, that meant that my breakfast was interrupted on more than one occasion, resulting in me eating it in a number of sittings. Not ideal, but probably a fair enough way for my stomach to deal with the offending item, and yet, even when I did eventually finish the meal it felt like it was just so not worth it.

    What is it I say to all my friends again? "Don't look back, you're not going in that direction..."? Yeah, well maybe I should heed my own advice.

    Anyway, we're on a break. Again. A two day break. Plenty of time to re-evaluate what we both want from this relationship, then we'll touch base again one last time, and see where we want to take it from there.

    In other news my boys went to their Dad's yesterday. I may not be married to the guy anymore, but unlike many divorced couples we are fortunate enough to still live in the same town, and have developed a really strong friendship. We're even more fortunate that most of his holidays coincide with theirs so he steps up to the mark and gives both sets of grandparents a break from the school runs when he can - and the boys a break from the early starts they'd be subjected to if they stayed with me during their holidays - and in turn it gives me a break too.

    They're staying there until Thursday and this used to mean me pretty much moving myself into the gym - training morning & night, every day, then rushing home to get two sets of fresh gym gear ready for the next day along with a packed breakfast and lunch, a quick bite to eat for tea, a quick empty of the washing machine, and off to bed. Then I'd probably foolishly end up cramming in the chores when the boys got back home... Or selfishly maybe - I can see that for what it was now.

    Through Whole9 I learned that happiness doesn't come from over-training, inner peace doesn't come from getting stressed, study doesn't get done when our minds are racing, friendships don't thrive when we put them on the back-burner. Over exertion of any kind results in stress of all kinds. Life should be about balance.

    So this time I'm training each morning before work, leaving my evenings free to do those chores before the kids return, leaving me time to study a little, plan some outings for the weekend ahead, and to put together an itinerary for our road trip next week.

    This time it's about order. And with order comes peace of mind.
