    CALLING ALL JANUARY 1ST WHOLE30ERS!

    Started today but didn't get out of bed until 11am because I got home at 2am. So I had brunch and dinner today. Brunch: 2 eggs, scrambled with mushrooms, applegate chicken apple sausage, and a cup or so of grape tomatoes. Kombucha. Dinner: Zoodles, ground turkey with marinara sauce, and pomegranate seeds. I drizzled olive oil on the marinara for more fat. It's early so I might have some sort of veg as a snack. Drinking lacroix for dinner.

    Has anyone found coconut milk is a carton that is compliant. I thought I had one but it has carrageenan in it which is not approved. It's so much easier to pour out of a carton that a can.

    I'm Shea and this is my second whole30. I did my first in September. I was pretty good until 2 weeks ago and the lack of schedule (I'm a teacher) and a stressful parent visit had me drinking more and eating more. Looking forward to getting back on track. The hardest thing for me is going to be my birthday in 2 weeks. I'll have fruit instead of alcohol. Oh and I have Hashimoto's disease so I'm already gluten free and mostly grain free.

    I had to pop in and say I was at lunch with a friend today and Melissa Hartwig was there. She was drinking white wine so of course I ordered some also.

    Still here. I decided that I want to have one cheat meal/week. This weekend it was GF pizza...but then I ate a bag of chips. Oh well. I'm back on track. Cooked a crockpot full of carnitas last night and that will be lunches all week. I'm making chili tonight. Our weather has not really been cooling off so chili doesn't sound great but it's what I planned so it's getting made.

    I hear you! I was busy on Monday and I thought about getting a GF pizza but instead came home and made some egg drop soup which took about 10 minutes.

    I'm still here just busy at work. We have parent teacher conferences this week. I had a blowout weekend but I'm back on track. I'm 95% compliant and still paleo. I think my bacon has organic honey in it. I realize I have to eat this way or else I start grabbing some tortilla chips at night or a glass of wine. I realized I'm a snacker. I just made a batch of chocolate chili that will hopefully last for a few lunches. I kind of felt like I as getting some energy right at the end so I'm going to stick with things and hope that keeps on happening.

    Well I reintroduced alcohol last night at my fire pit/bbq party I hosted and I won't be doing that again. I can handle a drink or two but I think I had quite a bit of wine and some champagne. Alcohol is not my friend and I will be limiting that. I also had some chips but didn't even eat a lot. Usually I'd finish off the bag.

    Had my first drink last night. One shot of vodka in a lacroix. I drank it over 3 hours because I had to take my daughter to soccer. I don't think I miss drinking as much as I thought I did. Last night it seemed to make me irritable. I'm out of food at home so I'll have to eat out for lunch but I'm keeping it whole30.

    I LOVE CHIPS! I'll be getting some of these for my BBQ this weekend.

    I had to laugh at something that happened today. My coworker was going to the grocery store during a break so I asked her to pick me up some pico for my salad. She brought me pico salsa. I looked at the mile long ingredients and cringed. It had cane sugar among a bunch of other things. Fortunately it's day 31 so I put about a teaspoon on my salad, so she didn't feel bad. This has made me much more aware of hidden sugar in things. I also don't want to eat crap like that anymore unless it's my choice.

    Day 31. Nothing much different today. Tomorrow we are going out and I'm going to have a glass of wine! YAY!

    Starting September 1 - Who's with me?

    I'm spending my last day home in bed. I feel much better than I did at 3am but still called for a sub. I'm in the not weighing section. I haven't weighed myself in years and I suffer from mild body dysmorphia, so weighing is a trigger. I love that whole30 has broken my calorie counting addiction and I feel my relationship with food is better than it's been in years. My snacking problem is also under control. It seemed like I was always eating and now I can manage with 3 meals a day. I'll be doing another strict whole30 in March before we go to Hawaii in April but I'm keeping paleo and mostly whole30 for now.

    I haven't thought much past wine with my reintroduction. I've been GF for 3 years so I won't be adding that. I'm pretty much done with dairy for good so that isn't an issue either. I might have some corn in the way of tortilla chips. I'm planning on continuing with Paleo as much as possible.Oh I will be having some fries now and then. I miss social drinking. :/

    It's the basil garlic. They don't have the meatballs on the website but it has the same ingredients as the basil garlic sausage. The only thing different is organic sun dried tomatoes.
