    In my experience week three IS the hardest! It's not all shiny and new anymore and you might expect to see results by then but there's still a while to go. Hang in there!

    I started on the 28th of December but slipped up this weekend so I am starting AGAIN on the 19th. Welcome!

    So I went off plan on the weekend. I don't know what came over me but I decided I didn't care and had an "everything in moderation can't hurt" moment and "I'll just start again moment" I didnt go completely NUTS but I pretty much ate every food group/item we aren't supposed to include (bit of dairy, grains, peanuts, sugar..) I had the worst stomach ache/cramps yesterday and today I feel sick and hungover and bloated. I was getting frustrated with having to make so many decisions about food but the way I feel today proves to me it's not worth it to give up and reminds me that the reason I started was to figure out what specifically causes me digestive distress or if it's a combination of everything in excess (I usually don't have immediate reactions but a build up over time). Here's to day 1 again. I owe it to myself to do a full 30 days.

    I had a lot of issues with energy for runs during my last W30. It got better around the 3 week mark but nowhere near the same kind of energy as pre whole30. There are forums specifically for this kind of issue in the Whole30 for athletes section if you want to have a browse.

I'm getting my period which I think is contributing but all I wanna do is lie around the house right now. Forcing myself to go to the gym and do a strength session though as I'm starting night shift tonight and exercise makes it so much easier to deal with.

    Thanks GF Chris. I've been a bit under prepared this week/been hungrier than I expected so haven't had enough food on hand. Elaine-O I snack too much on fruit and nuts. Trying to avoid it. It's very SWYPO for me

    I need to come up with some more compliant mini meal ideas

    Just finished up day 12 here and I am finding it hard not to snack still. My morning snacks are okay but I'm finding it tough sometimes between lunch and dinner. Because my schedule is all over the place some days I am more hungry than others but I am finding my meals are making me really full but I am only staying satiated for maybe 4 hours - which is good but sometimes I need longer!

    Wow... yesterday, day 10, I truly experienced what KILL ALL THE THINGS really means. No, I didn't kill anyone. But my husband had to try and soothe me like a baby because I was so wound up and told the cat to get fucked and yelled at TV characters like they were real people (I'm watching Dexter - and for anyone who's seen it, I was swearing at Lieutenant Laguerta calling her a stupid b*tch and getting really worked up at how much of a cow she was being So funny. I just could NOT relax/de-anger myself. It was weird as well because I was feeling relatively Zen for most of the day then it all just hit me like a truck at once later in the afternoon. Feeling much better today.

    I.... I am not treating myself I guess. The other day I drank a glass of water and lemon in one of our fancy wine glasses just to make it feel a bit nicer and my hubby thought it was funny Someone randomly followed my blog today that I have not posted in since 2013. It was a journal of my SECOND W30 which I "failed" after day 12 but reading through it I had always failed because even though I was making huge changes, I wasn't overly compliant. Reading over it makes me realise how far I've come and how much of a learning curve this is.
  12. Ew! At least it keeps you honest!

    OMG I knew I shouldn't have bought dried figs! Bought them for a recipe later in the week but opened them and thought "I'll just have one" and have had about 20!!! Urrggghhh. Definite food without breaks. Shouldn't even be snacking on them at all.
  14. I'm a police officer and the added stress of being fit enough to do my job and at the right 'weight' makes it tough sometimes. I know how you feel! I could probably let myself go more than I have but ordering new uniform is an ordeal and a half so at least my work pants/shirt/belt keep me honest

    I've been looking through the Well Fed recipes and she uses them a lot for sauces and in recipes! I feel like I need them! But without knowing what it tastes like I don't know how to substitute. Ah well.
