    I so sympathise with the vertigo! Chronic unremitting vertigo was why I started W30 in January 2019. What causes yours? Mine turned out to be vestibular migraine caused by food intolerances. I slipped back into old ways of eating late last year and now I'm back on round, because it came back and was getting more persistent. I truly hope it lets up on you!

    Mine is part of my Post-viral Syndrome (ME), and flares up, usually when I come down with a sinus/ears-related virus. This one's been a really long haul!

  2. Yesterday lunch: fruit and nuts

    Yesterday dinner: steak and salad, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar

    So, although it was a good first day, food-wise, by mid-afternoon it was clear that I'd caught the head-cold that's doing the rounds. I am sick, which is going to make things very difficult, especially with the sore throat. Trying not to take anything might be a fail.

    Still, I did manage breakfast this morning.

    Breakfast: my go-to

    If the cold gets too hard to deal with, I may have to restart this W30 in a few days.

  3. 2019 Was a huge year for transitions in our family. Although it was mostly in good ways, I got to the point where I was using too many "spoons" per day and not stopping to even try to recover. I had an ME crash in early November. In addition to all the usual symptoms of my chronic illness flaring madly, I gained 10 pounds in about 10 weeks and my digestive system has slowed to a crawl. Now it's time to care for my body properly again.

    Breakfast: 2 eggs, fried in coconut oil, with a mound of spinach - quick, easy, and I can make myself eat it when I don't want to eat. 1 cup coffee, straight up. Remember to eat within an hour of getting up. This is a good start for me, as I hardly want to move for the first 2-3 hours of the day.

    Goal: Hard-boil 6 eggs to have on hand.

  4. I did the Whole 30 in 2013, with great success. I've been living with a chronic illness for nearly 16 years, and gaining control of my digestive issues really helped me manage and cope with my illness. This past November I crashed. Doing too much and not looking after myself properly. I'm starting to come out of that severe symptom flare-up now, and I'm hopeful that another Whole 30 will help me regain my "balance" and settle down my digestive system once again. My body needs a break, and today I have started that break by starting a Whole 30.
