    Yeah Day 20! Nice of you to join us Carrick. I too am not hungry until late afternoon. Sarah, just take it one day at a time as long as you complete the Whole 30 and then do the reintro properly. Plus there is no deadline, so you can always start again and do a 90 later if the time frame is tight right now. Just focus on doing this one right since you are already 2/3's through. Sharyn...glad you enjoyed your presentation, but you probably still should have had a little something once you got home since you didn't eat dinner. Sorry you didn't sleep well. Oh Happy Belated Birthday! Enjoy the bike. My son just learned how to ride his bike so I am hope the weather clears up soon so we can take a little bike ride trip together. I'm off to the doc to give him an update on my Lyme symptoms then off to the personal trainer to get my butt in shape. Baked salmon, butternutt squash and cauliflower is what I have had so far today. I have been skipping breakfast the past few days. Just not hungry at all. I know I need to start shoving something in even though I am not hungry..I will tomorrow. With AIP and no eggs or nuts...I am finding it a little difficult to eat steak or chicken or fish every morning...just a little phase I am going through. Blah blah blah.. Have a great Day 20!!

    LadyM, that helps a lot knowing that I am not the only one that has been ill during their first Whole30 " detox". Sorry you had it rough, but it seems you have emerged much stronger. Thanks! This is the first lifestyle diet that actually seems to be working for me. I've tried Atkins and Dukan and other low carb to semi paleo diets and I still had the cravings, hungry all the time and feeling deprived. Eventually giving up in them. I don't have any of these feels on this. Loving it!

    Awesome job Racemom, hope you hang out with a little longer after the first 30 :-) I love this not feeling hungry. I eat, the portions are much smaller then they were before, and then I'm done. No raiding the kitchen or constant thinking about food..when they talk about freedom in the book, they are right. I feel like I have gained freedom from my obsession with food. Yah! Day 19! Kinding of feeling like the world is against me at the moment, not with the diet, but with my household not being able to kick these colds that keep coming. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.....it is getting really old. I know that our illnesses are not serious and there are others in the world that have it much worse than us. I am just feeling a little annoyed at the moment and needed to vent. Both kids were home from school again today and I have caught their sore throat and I have pain in my ear. Just as things were starting to get better for me...I had such a better day yesterday. I was looking forward to have another personal trainer hour today (she was nice enough to let me schedule an extra hour this week since I have missed so much) and I had to cancel it today! Grrr.. Oh well I'll see her tomorrow. Loving my sore stomach muscles....there is a six pack under there somewhere... This is a journey...I am going to feel good, I am going to get better. Ok..now I have to get my butt up and clean the living room! Hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday...11 more days left for the first Whole 30!!!!! Go March firsters!!!!!!!

    Sharyn, all that food sounds so good. I think I will try to make some homemade mayo tomorrow. I baked some salmon for tomorrow. Happy to see you back EmayPA! Keep up the good work. LadyM hope you got that nap in. What show are you working on, may I ask? My work out with the trainer today was awesome!!!!! 3 supersets, rowing...It felt so great to have energy! I wasn't dizzy at all, some minor aches and pains, but nothing I couldn't push through. No headaches today. Bathrooms are clean, mopped the floors, kids clothes are washed and put away....Best day out of the 18 so far. Hoping I am even stronger and have more energy tomorrow.

    Got another walk in yesterday! Two days in a row. I have my personal trainer appointment today and I am excited about going since I am finally up and about and my aches and pains are minor. I have missed two weeks of appointments with her! What a waste, but not focusing on the negative...So..Day 18 of Whole 30 nr1 (Day 8 AIP). My walk in the rain last night...(22.45-23.55) was fantastic. Kept doing deep breathes of fresh clean air. I did 6.7kms in about an hour. Felt really good. Woke up this morning with a little pep in my step, but then this little cold that someone brought in to the house was bothering me (drainage down the back of my throat). I needed to rest. Thought I'd lay down for an hour and then tons of stuff done around the house..3.5 hours later I slowly emerge from my coffin. I guess I really needed to rest. The throat thing is almost away... Laundry is going. Off to clean bathrooms....I only have two more days after today until I'm thrown back into reality...(I have to go back to work!)

    Wow, LadyM..that is great. I missing running. I hope that this diet will help me get back to it. I ran two half marathons last year..I was going to run the Bergen Half at the end of April, but I have decided not too since I have not been able to run now for two months..I'll see how it goes and hopefully I can get to the Oslo one at the end of Sept. I too prefer eating sweet potatoes over white potatoes. Sarah, yeah I am happy that I will have someone else carrying on with AIP a little longer. Yes all the normal Paleo recipes look so inviting. At the moment, I try not to look at recipes of NON AIP. Racemom, I'm going to take a look at the Whole30 Log. Sounds like a good idea. I have kind of being using this thread as a log. Sharyn, glad you are back on track. Take care of your tum. Happy St. Patrick's Day. Day 17. Day 16 was one of the better days I have had. I finally went on a walk (5.3km trail around my neighborhood). I had some muscle spasms in my hip and shooting pain in my elbow afterward, but thankfully it only lasted a little over an hour. It felt so good to get out of the house and go for a walk. After resting and the kids were in bed. I tapped green foot prints in a trail to a pot of treasure (a small thing of candy). The leprechaun always stops to use the toilet. (footprints on the toilet seat and a few drops of green food coloring in the toilet bowl). My son always gets a kick out of that. Then I made sugar cookies in the shape of clovers with green frosting for his class. While making the cookies the sugar mix looked so tempting, then the more I worked with the cookies I started to get a headache. Not any of it touched my lips, but I think just working around it was making me ill. I had a pounding headache until almost 3am. So no more baking until Easter. Looking forward to another walk today :-)

    LadyM, thanks for the support and I'm not much of a party girl this month either. Good job on resisting the temptations at your social event. When I was craving wine on Friday, hubby was kind enough to drink beer instead of wine in front of me. Hahh hah..that kind of helped since I really didn't want beer, but still I was craving a drink...oh well. I can save the drink for our 10 year anniversary at the end of May and my brother's wedding at the end of June. :-)

    Sharyn...ahhh that is very sweet you and your man . Sorry you had a reaction to your lunch, but at least it was a learning experience. Keep moving forward.

    Megalinity, you are doing great. This is one of the hardest things, giving in to eating something because you don't want to hurt someone's feelings. I felt this way when I denied eating a special meal made by my father in-law... Yes my family loves pancakes and waffles..

    Yippie! Day 15!... Pancake day at my house was a little bit of torture today. I had broth while everyone enjoyed their allergy free ingredient pancakes with wild blueberries. Usually on Sundays but we didn't have them last weekend because I wasn't well. Oh..last night I was soooo craving a glass of wine. I usually would have a glass or two on Friday and/or Saturday evening. But I didn't and once I had a lovely steak, a spinach salad and a sweet potato I was fine.

    Sarah, wish you the best of luck on whatever you decide. Sorry to hear your baby girl is having a reaction to vaccines. That scares me to bits. My kids are allergy kids (8yr boy and 17month girl). They are allergic to milk, nuts, eggs, strawberries and bananas...I have a feeling this came from me... My kids have never had a shot because of their allergies. They are pretty healthy (except my daughter has caught Hand, Foot, & Mouth virus that is going around the daycare at the moment). They have never had an ear infection and I think my son has had a fever 2 or 3 times. If he gets a cold he is sick for a day maybe two. My son had the chicken poxes,but it was very mild and wasn't that big of a deal, thankfully.

    Sarah, that is fantastic. I'm going on vacation and to my brothers wedding at the end of June, so I am committing to staying AIP until then and then I will return again. So that is about 3.5 months of AIP. Glad things are going so well. If you have made up your mind then it shouldn't be a problem having guests around.

    Sharyn..sorry about your oat mishap.. If you have eaten all four bars than you have consumed 120g of bars..meaning that 24g of all those bars put together were oats ... Well I am on the Whole 90...AIP so you can hang out with me. Plus I like your food combinations and ideas. Good stuff.
