    Since I am eating real, whole, healthy nutritious foods that promote health, happiness, and overall good feelings, whatever weight or other measurements my body naturally falls into will be the healthiest weight and size for me, and because I am eating to fuel my body and eating as many calories as my body needs to function and thrive, whatever weight and size I fall into will be naturally sustainable and maintainable by simply continuing to live the Whole 30 way. So, instead of stressing about how many calories I think I'm taking in (I am not actually counting) and whether I may be gaining or losing weight, I am going to work on being happy with my food choices, and be happy with whatever weight, size, and measurements my body naturally falls into by following this lifestyle.

    You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...

    You know someone is doing a Whole 30 when they want to make mayonnaise with an immersion blender but they don't want to wake up their husband who is sleeping in the apartment bedroom adjacent to the kitchen, so they go to the second bedroom, close the door, then go into the bathroom, close the door, and make their loud mayonnaise within the confines of the bathroom. I may have just done this... What! I needed a mayo fix!

    Plan a Whole30 dream vacation

    I love this. I just built my Whole 30 Dream Vacation in my mind and I felt like I was almost there. Since a Whole 30 vacation is not about traveling to get local foods (like pasta from Italy, Navajo tacos from the Midwest USA, or pizza/bagels/cheesecake from NYC), I am focusing my vacation on other factors. It's strange--usually one of the first things I think of when planning a vacation is food, and I plan what restaurants I want to visit. But, with this exercise, I am focusing on other things besides food. How refreshing! Where I would go: a resort on a beautiful beach, either in the Virgin Islands or Hawaii, with my husband What I would eat: --Breakfast would be a huge omelet with lots of veggies and ghee with a side of roasted butternut squash or sweet potato with crio Bru to drink, and possibly some fresh fruit --Then after about 1-2 hours, I would go on a long run --I may or may not have a post-WO snack...if I did, it would be lean protein and a starchy veggie --Lunch would be a protein-packed salad with either salmon, chicken, steak, or some other protein and lots of fresh veggies with 1/2 an avocado and a serving of walnuts with olive oil and balsamic vinegar --Dinner would be either grilled chicken or fish or a steak with sautéed and perfectly seasoned veggies on the side --And of course all of this would be cooked for me! Breakfast would be served to my room, where I can eat on the balcony, overlooking the ocean. Lunch would either be served to me on a lounge chair on the beach or at a cafe bistro restaurant, and dinner would be at a nice date night style restaurant where my husband and I can have a romantic date. What I would focus on: --Stress Management: I would sleep until I woke up naturally, I would lounge on the beach or by the pool, I would take a nap whenever I pleased, and I would not worry about anything. --Exercise: I would go on a long run after breakfast, and participate in yoga classes by the beach because of course they would have yoga on the beach in my dreams. --Most importantly, Fun & time with my husband: we would spend quite a large amount of time with each other during the day, but occasionally do our own thing. We would, however, always be together for a romantic date night for dinner every night. Sigh, a girl can dream...

    Profile Image Issues

    Is this the reason why pictures can also not be posted in post replies, too? I started having an issue with this yesterday out of the blue.
