  1. @Tiffy Squidwell…. Sadly, despite doing countless whole30s I have never nailed the reintro. I always mess it up. So I have never done one right. Major fail. I only know that eggs give me headaches. I’m oblivious to all other food items. Except I also wake up with a headache if I drink a soda too close to bedtime. That however is knowledge I obtained without the Whole30. Did Melissa introduce a plant based Whole30 because she now is against meat? Or just because it was for popular demand? I seen that it happened but didn’t read up on it.
  2. I am literally the worst at reintro. I mess it up every time. bad bad bad weekend. Plans…. Heading back to Whole30 for an unknown amount of time. Maybe two weeks, maybe 30 days, maybe longer. Then I REALLY need to do a proper reintro. Good luck to all of you Rikki
  3. I don’t know what I was thinking…. Clearly I was in a post Night Shift fog and NOT thinking. A co-worker and I grabbed breakfast together on our way home from the hospital. I made the decision that I would intro gluten/flour. So I got a breakfast sandwich that was grilled chicken on a biscuit. No cheese. No sauce. Nothing else. Just chicken and a biscuit. I didn’t even add egg because I already know those can give me headaches. I felt good about my decision. Enjoyed breakfast and the company. Went to bed feeling fine. Woke up this afternoon to head back to work and sudden
  4. Congrats on the blood pressure and weight loss!! That’s awesome!!
  5. Still no reintro for me yet. I am now thinking I might skip the ice cream, aka dairy reintro, and go for sushi on Monday instead. Pretty sure doing sushi I can trial rice but keep everything else out? I will just need to be mindful of any breaded shrimp in the mix of the sushi rolls. Thoughts? I honeslty don’t know too much about what’s in Sushi. I just know I enjoy eating it
  6. Glad I didn’t reintro anything other than sugar yesterday. I woke go with a wicked headache which was right on course with my typical period headaches. They tend to peek on day two or three. Sooo yup if I had eaten anything other than sugar, even knowing my headache cycles I would t have triple questioned the food. reintro should be able to start in another two days or so. For now I have a bunch of meat in the Sous Vide cooker and veggies ready to go too. Meal prep made easy. Gonna lay off the sugar again too. Just because I can. @Aliem999 sorry you got
  7. I did not stop and get me an icecream today as I had planned. Since I am still having menstrual cramps I didn’t want to question any discomfort. I did have a little sugar though in the way of a bite sized unreal brand coconut chocolate bar. The ingredients are not too crazy and it was pretty good …. Organic Coconut, Organic Cassava Syrup, Dark Chocolate (Chocolate Liquor, Cane Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Vanilla) didn’t seem to upset my gut. So we shall see how I feel tomorrow. Hoping my cramps go away soon. I really want ice cream.
  8. I actually started my period today. Tomorrow is day 31 and I was just thinking….. maybe I should extend it until I wake up not feeling bloated and crampy. Otherwise….. is it cramps? Or my gut doesn’t like dairy. way to screw up my plans of getting icecream tomorrow stupid body!
  9. I’m not extending because I want ice cream!! It is the only thing I have felt deprived of So Wednesday, day 31 for me, I’m getting a vanilla icecream from somewhere! I will keep it plain vanilla to test out the dairy. Won’t include any toppings or other mixings Other than that though, I don’t really have a desire to add anything back in for a while. I will most likely stay away from everything else, mostly grains and still super limited dairy in the way of an occasional ice cream, but I will be sure to do a proper reintro when I do add something else back in.
  10. CONGRATS on the dresses!!! That’s awesome!!! Obnoxiously I’m feeling extra bloated today. I can’t figure out why? My period isn’t for another week or a little longer. Didn’t add anything new to my diet?? Soooo who knows. Sadly I broke the scale rule yesterday. I joined an 8 week fitness challenge at my gym and I had to weigh in on their equipment. It was an electronic scale that I had to enter a bunch of info into so I couldn’t avoid looking at the numbers. I am down 10lbs though sooo YAY!!!
  11. I’m still around and definitely with you all on the food boredom!!! Plus boredom in general with being in quarantine for covid has made it even worse. I know two things about myself without a doubt ….. I am an emotional eater and a bored eater. So the fact that I have stuck with this whole thing while being out with covid is amazing!! I am not exactly sure how i will work my reintroduction just yet. I feel like sugars have already been reintroduced with the cold meds and cough drops I used on the worst days of my covid but I’m trying really hard to not count those against me. I do th
  12. What do you ladies think I should do? I did take both DayQuil once and Nyquil once yesterday which are pure sugar, and I know Melisa said it was okay to do in that article I found, but now I feel like I cheated the plan. Do I still keep going and claim I completed a Whole30 at the end? Or do I just accept defeat with being sick? The meds and cough drops are the only things that don’t fit but still. Thanks in advance oh and other update … I am feeling okay overall today. I was up about every two hours overnight with wicked coughing fits but my sore throat is a bit better. I do s
  13. Well Shyte. The hospital made me retest yesterday and my covid came back positive. So much for me getting to feel the tigers blood since it coincides with me getting covid. Lame
  14. Too funny. After my post last night about not touching my comfort foods while sick…. This was the daily Whole30 text I received. It's Day 17, and by now, you've hit a bump or two. You've been anxious, lonely, or scared, and tempted to comfort yourself with something sweet and instantly gratifying (AKA numbing). A gentle reminder from me (and from Past You, who came to the Whole30 in part for this specific reason): Food won't make it better. It won't make it easier. It won't make you happier. It doesn't fill the hole. It doesn't fix what's wrong. Connection, support, love, and reass
  15. Can I just pat myself on the back for a second I am a HUGE comfort eater!! Being sick is one of those times I WANT/NEED comfort food!! I don’t have an appetite right now per say but I have killer cravings and habits calling to me big time!! I want sugary sprite, I want cold ice cream, I want warm, homemade, thick noodled, chicken noodle soup and saltine crackers. I want my dads chocolate chip cookies and I want my grandma to bring me orange popsicles. I want all of those things to make me feel better! And you know what….. I haven’t touched any of them. I’m in my emotionally weak pl
