    Cold sores?

    As a mom working full-time who tends to take on too much, yeah... stress is a given.

    Cold sores?

    I have been eating an apple with almond butter maybe every other day. Other than that, no nuts! (this time)

    Cold sores?

    A while back, I spent several months battling cold sores that would go away and then come back a week or so later. (During this time, I completed my 5th W30 in June - saw no change in the cold sore occurrences during that.) In early August, the cold sores finally went away and seemed to be gone for good. I was still eating mostly W30, but with some kind of sugary indulgence most nights, damn that dragon. And maybe 1-2 SAD meals a week. Now I have started the Sept. W30. (I'm a day behind, so today is day 8 for me.) On the 4th day or so the cold sores came back! What's up with that? Is my body revolting against me taking away all the junk?
  4. Such a sad day. "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life."

    The crazy things people say

    You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...

    When you realize meeting local chicken small-farmers in random places in town to buy eggs feels a LOT like doing drug deals.

    Changes in Menstrual Cycle

    Ummm. I did my first Whole 30 in September 2012 and didn't get my period again for 3 MONTHS. (I went back to eating bad food almost immediately after the 30 days were up. I'm 30 yrs old today.) It wasn't any inconvenience then as I wasn't sexually active so I had no worries. But now I want to do another whole 30 in January (and hopefully the good habits will stick!) and I'm sexually active, and while I'll of course take precautions, I don't want to constantly be worried I could be pregnant. Is there anything I can do to keep my monthly pal around?
