    Shea74 got a reaction from Hawk in 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.

    The one I buy in the carton in Vancouver BC is called Real Thai... I don't see it on Amazon but here's a link to a photo/online shop http://www.londondrugs.com/real-thai-coconut-milk---1000ml/L8758807.htmlAroy-D in the carton is compliant as linked. Be sure if you're purchasing this in person that you read the ingredients... companies like this are notorious for having different formulas in different regions/at different times.

    I'm in with you all tomorrow. I've been toying with Paleo for a couple of years now and I've considered the Whole 30 a couple of times, but never seriously. My biggest challenge - by  far - will be no alcohol. I spent 18 years in the wine business and drinking every night is just what I've always done. I'm not a heavy drinker, but I do depend on my 1 or two glasses a night. Probably a sign that I need a break, huh? 
    My next biggest challenge will be bread/crackers. Not too worried about dairy and sugar. I generally eat a mostly whole foods diet and enjoy cooking. I've got the Whole30 cookbook, as well as Well Fed and Well Fed 2, so I've got tons of recipes. 
    My 12 year old daughter is (sort of) joining me. She is definitely starting to recognize the effects certain foods have on her body and moods, so this should be quite an interesting learning experience!

    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.

    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.

    Good for you with the veggies and MEAT!   I have been a popcorn eater for years. I let myself have some on Saturday night, air-popped with added butter, and it turns out I don't really like it much anymore. So I'm tossing the remaining seeds, and giving the popper to Goodwill since it's practically new. I don't ever need to go back to it, although if it was covered in caramel, it would be a struggle. But it would be a struggle I could successfully manage!!
     
    Today is day 1 for me on my second W30. I'm glad I have a bunch of stuff in my freezer to tide me over till I can get some cooking done. And I went to Costco yesterday to stock up on all kinds of good stuff. Bought avocado oil for the first time. Let's hope I like it, because you KNOW the Costco size bottle will last a while!

    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.
