    Weekend Problems

    It's not that I am on the go per se, it's more just a change in schedule in routine. I am going to try and stick with a good breakfast and keep the nuts out of my house. And I love the idea about a running list!! Thanks!

    Weekend Problems

    Good morning all, I don't know about you, but I have a much harder time complying with The Whole30 meal plan during the weekend rather than the regular week. During the week I have a schedule and I am more or less able to eat around my set schedule. On the weekend however, I'm always running around and things change so often. Therefore my eating habits are different as well. As a result I eat tons of Whole30 junk food like nuts and fruit. This is my 20th day into the program and I feel like I am not see the full results, because even though I am sticking to compliant foods, I am not making the most of the 30 days. How do you all get through the weekend? I would really love any tips or advice that anyone has!

    I eat a template meal based for breakfast and lunch. those meals are usually between 8-9 am and noon.

    Timing Meals Around Planned Events

    OK... so maybe like a chicken breast, tahini (sp?) sauce, and 2 handfuls of random veggies? Also, could I eat this before I even get hungry? I am thiking if I wait til 5 I my appetite might really perk up and it will be hard to limit myself to a mini-meal. But if I eat it at 4:30, before I really get hungry, it might stave off my appetite until dinner later?
  7. Hi Guys, I am having a really big problem with one particular part of W30. Before I launch into it, I'll just say that I have completed a W30 before, with other W7s, 9s, 21s, etc. OK, this is my dilema: Every Friday night I have a Shabbat diner with my family . The timing of this meal depends on sundown, so for week dinner is probably around 8 o'clock or so. This is a really important and sacred tradition that I cannot give up. My problem is that even when I make all compliant food, I still totally overeat and it messes me up entirely! This is because I am used to eating dinner around 530 or 6 during the week. The timing of this meal is non-negotiable. So...I could try to eat a snack earlier? Or try to eat a meal earlier, and only eat a little bit during Sabbath dinner? Any and all advice is appreciated! I really want to crush this W30 but I keep getting hung up on this one night! Ah!

    Struggling with 'failure'

    I am so glad I found this topic because I am going through the same thing. Since I have had my baby I've had a W24, W13, W9... but I've never made it to 30. I'm proud at the fact that I've been eating all of this compliant food but mostly disappointed that I have been so unsuccessful. These feelings are really bogging me down. I'm trying to tell myself to learn from mistakes. So, for example, I have learned to pack more food to bring with me at work, to make sure not to put off meals, because that just leads to gorging myself on whatever is available, and to get enough sleep (which is really hard to come by since I have a 4 month old!). That being said, my W30 is very difficult to complete because I have so much going on in my life. I need to forgive myself and move on. Dawnski-- You have a very full and complicated life, just like the rest of us. Doing this program completely changes things, and as a result it is totally understandable that you slipped up. It is really difficult to challenge for every scenario in our lives, whether it be a physical or emotional one. Be patient. You have done amazing things for yourself in 22 days. That is over 3 weeks! That is awesome!! How many people do you know can say, "I haven't had any sugar or processed foods in 3 weeks."? Whatever you decide to do - do it with intention. You will intentionally get back on, or intentionally get back off. I personally would love to correspond with you through this journey. Keep it real!

    Trader Joes and Whole Foods both sell almond butter as well.

    Cross Fit from Home?

    Thanks for the info! It's never too late to learn about awesome workouts.
  12. Maybe what you can do as follows: continue doing what you are doing, and do some research into local places to find out what is W30 compliant. Then in a week or so start a really strict W30. W30 isnt' the type of thing you can go into unprepared. WIth those of us with kitchens, that means stocking up on pantry items and cooked compliant food. For you, this might mean making a list of places who have W30 compliant menu items. Hope this helps!
