    Hi @Hope4Overcomers!
    I am on my 6th day today and feeling so much better than the first few days! I am pretty proud of myself actually after my crazy weekend. I went to a party on Saturday and brought my own food and didn't consume any alcohol. On Sunday I went out on a boat with friends and brought snacks for myself and when we had lunch I got a turkey burger with a salad and used hot sauce as dressing as I didn't know if any of the restaurant dressings were compliant. I feel like I have finally got over the hump of craving sugar and bread ect. and now crave all the good Whole 30 approved food I have been eating. By the way one of my favorite go to foods has been the curry chicken salad lettuce wraps from the Fast & Easy book. This book has been a life saver with working full time because the meals are so easy and quick to whip up.
    Hope everyone is doing well too! Stay strong  
    Meg

    LOL. I've been eating burgers practically every day except for today. I am totally burned out at this point. Going to bow out of that one. 
    I have Well Fed 1 and 2 but just haven't tried a lot of the recipes yet. Will have to dig into those soon.

    I'm eating way too much bacon!
    I've eaten seven meals since starting Whole30 on Saturday... And I've eaten bacon with four of those meals. Yikes! I need to lay off the bacon and eat more greens! LOL.

    Starting August 1st! The stakes are big for me as I signed up for Healthy Wage, and Whole30 is going to be an essential part of what gets me to my goal! I can't afford to throw away so much money, so I have a huge motivator to keep me from cheating! I have a 2 month old baby who doesn't like to sleep much along with three teenagers and a full time job so I need the energy and improved cognitive function that whole30 has given me in the past! I don't have a ton of spare time for all of the pretty whole 30 recipes and I am pretty domestically challenged anyways so I'll be going with pretty simple foods. I AM all about keeping things fun, though! So I'm looking forward to doing this alongside others!
