    Changes in Menstrual Cycle

    Mine was about 20 days late during my W30 and it was always right on schedule. I still had some cramping but my period only lasted about 4 days....it used to go on for 6-8 days! If my body follows the 30 day schedule, I should be starting today or tomorrow so we will see how not being on a strict W30 affects me now...

    Spending way too much $$ on groceries!

    Spending way too much $$ on groceries!

    I find myself buying meats/chicken/fish on sale when my freezer is already full too! Since my husband and I eat separate meals, I keep my stuff in the kitchen freezer while he has allof the stuff I can no longer eat plus his foods in a big freezer in the basement. Beef Broth Bones found their way into his freezer because I didn't have room in mine!

    Spending way too much $$ on groceries!

    I am on Day 28 and decided to see how much I have spent compared to the previous month of eating out and my normal grocery shopping. Turns out that it was about $100 more this month but that can be explained with buying staples such as coconut oil more EVOO than normal, Coconut Amino, Coconut Flour...and other stuff to have around since I am cooking all the time. A lot of the stuff won't need to be bought again for awhile. My husband and I don't have any kids and make decent money so we don't have to worry about keeping a tight budget, or at least I don't! Eating this way has definitely made some differences in how I feel and for the better so it's worth spending a little more than normal. I am looking forward to more veggie and fruit options at the farmer's market that are typically cheaper than at the stores. I do find myself trying to stretch meals out over a few days so I don't waste anything. There's no telling how much food I threw away because it didn't get eaten due to going out to eat so I know I wasted a ton of money there! After I finish the 30 days, I will continue with a few re-introductions but I will also work on finding ways to save money too. After all, I'll have to buy new clothes to go with my new body, right??

    Plan a Whole30 dream vacation

    I was all ready to post my Whole30 dream vacation and decided to read through everyone else's posts first. I got as far as Melissa's post and "What the heck???" She posted my dream vacation down the to location, what I would eat, and what I would do! Saves me some typing! Thanks Melissa!
