  1. @A_banana, My first thought was that you could set your watch to your home time zone. It's what I've always done when I traveled. As for meals, think in terms of meal 1, meal 2 and meal 3 rather than breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tinned foods should be okay thru customs. Hope someone else has suggestions for you. Welcome aboard.
  2. Artificial Flavor in Coffee?

    I'm drinking much less coffee these days so I am buying more exotic coffee that I don't to add anything to. My gift list included coffee from small roasters.
  3. Breakfast sugestions?

    I have always eaten leftovers in the morning. Even as a child.
  4. Joining the community and starting on Jan. 1 2018

    Mireille, Good for you! I don't do fancy. Just meat/chicken and veggies plus healthy fats.
  5. Starting January 1, 2018

    Not on your own by a long shot. I'm starting the 1st as well.
  6. January 1st restart

    I keep restarting but I take at least a few of the good habits with me. A lot has changed in my mindset and I know I can do this. Lydia Jo
  7. Restart, Reset, Regain control

    @GabiPatricia I've gone down this road several times but seem to get derailed. Each time I learn more about myself. I've done away with the focus issue by having 6-10 pre cooked meals in the freezer. Because I often work from up to 16 hours, I always take 2 meals with me to work. You know the what to do, focus on the why.
  8. Underwhelmed and frustrated

    Wow, that is a lot of negative stuff. Maybe it's not about what you have left out of your diet but what you have added. Have you been eating new foods or larger amounts of some foods since going Whole 30?
  9. Woo Hoo! Day 30 is Here!

    Congratulations on the improved you. You and your family did a great job.
  10. starting over again

    @kirbz Thanks
  11. starting over again

    I'm just back from a 5 day cruise. I did make choices which were not on plan. As such I am starting over this weekend.
  12. Looking for an Over 50 Group to blog with

    Carla, All things considered, I think you did great. Next time you go out with people or to places your not sure of, eat first. My Aunt was always a picky eater. If she didn't care for the food where we were eating, that's what she did. She could always order a chef salad or steamed veggies or coffee and enjoy the company.

    HUGs. My daughter has a good friend that has had to evacuate. Stay safe and dry.
  14. #SeptemberWhole30

    I wish I could cook ahead. My freezer is on the small side. I have stocked up on frozen veggies. Hard boiled eggs. I did make spicy tuna cakes for work tomorrow and the next day dinner.
