    Hello everyone! Day 9. Sorry to hear about some peoples family problems! Sending light and strength your way! I'm still plugging along, survived some bbqs and family get togethers this weekend. Had a very hard time at a BBQ Saturday. I felt uncomfortable with this group of people and was tempted to have a drink to take the edge off and lighten up but I decided "nope! I'm going home!" Haha. So we left. This is my 2nd whole 30 and in a way I'm reflecting on other parts of my life that need improvement. I'm trying to connect with my kids in more meaningful ways and teach them better habits. We've been trying to sit down to meals together and maybe this sounds silly but it's even easier to do than what I had been doing which was feed the toddler whatever he wants, whenever he wants it while I cook my compliant food. He wanders off to the living room and makes a mess... It's been so enjoyable to sit and chat with him. And then he helps me clean up the table. This might be "parenting 101" but I didn't take that class and am learning the hard way.

    Thanks!! I'm really proud of all the rest of you who stayed strong! Corny as that sounds. I know what some of my triggers are too, we're at the BBQ yesterday and I get stressed because I'm not very comfortable with my husbands friends and so I have a drink to busy myself and take the edge off. Not the best situation but I guess I'm learning.

    Thanks! I'm actually brewing my own kombucha! I love it! Sometimes the forum seems to glitch when I quote people, I'm on my phone so I don't know. Thank you again.

    Well despite all the support, I caved. And I'm telling you all to stay accountable, I guess. I kept my food clean, but totally gave in on some champagne. So I'm going to start again tomorrow, today I'm going to keep it clean but I'm going to do all the day 0 stuff I didn't do last time, write down my goals, etc. this WILL BE my 2nd whole 30. Thanks again.

    I can't seem to quote people. Thanks all! I guess I just need a reminder.

    Thank you. I *know* that and when you say it, it seems so obvious. Haha. I'm taking my la croix and some fruit salad so that will be easy. Tastes great, looks fancy, no one asks where my drink is or if I'm pregnant. Thanks again!

    I'm struggling today. We're going to a BBQ and I don't care about the food, I want a drink. Our friends are all drinkers and there will be alcohol. I keep telling myself the only thing I'm missing is the hangover.

    If anyone is posting their "journey" or whatever you call it on Instagram and want to share, will you post a link here? I'm going to document my foods and feeeeeelings there if you want to follow me. No idea how to do the link... Username: charisseeats

    I am so ready! Been doing a lot of compliant meals since I finished up my whole 30 in May but I've also been enjoying my wine and a few other things. I never did a proper reintro so I'm going to try that this time, but we do have a wedding to attend early August so we shall see.

    Yes! Having a support group helped me last time!

    Ok. I'm officially in!! I finished my first whole 30 in May, been trying to remain compliant, but haven't really. I didn't do my reintroducing properly either. So I WILL do it this time!! I decided the only thing I would be missing over the holiday is alcohol and really, I always get a hangover and regret drinking so, if all I'm really missing is the hangover, what's to miss??

    There's an official group starting up on the first... I'm trying to psyche myself up to join yall! It's hard thinking about the 4th of July though!!

    May 20th reintro starts

    So I decided to jump right back into another 30 and do the reintro properly then. I went off the rails. Was drinking beer when my neighbor offered me spaghetti and ate the heck out of that. Had a hangover, made bad choices, felt awful, decided to start over. I'm on day 4.
