  1. Hey Mark! I'm still here. Just literally going in a million different directions. We are in the process of buying a house. And if it's not one thing , it's 10 others. I am thankful to thinking clearly here on Whole30, but man, not being able to relax and have a drink or two at the end of the day or on the weekends is TOUGH for me. Joe's not doing Whole 30 with me. And I'm fine with that. It's my choice. But it's definitely harder when your partner isn't. Watching him "enjoy" the weekend was hard. Not sure why "enjoy" is synonymous with eat & drink, but it is. Trying to really evaluate
  2. Morning everyone!! (aka Mark. Lol) Well...we're on to day 9. Almost a 1/3 of the way there. The next couple days will be challenging. Dinner out with Joe's family tonight b/c his brother's in town from Miami. (Joe's 49th birthday is Halloween - we are going to see a play at a theatre I work at and make a yummy Whole 30 meal on Friday. His brother's 50th birthday is Friday.) I plan to eat salad at the restaurant tonight and drink tea. I packed a bunch of extra food today so I won't be hungry at that time. Tomorrow is dinner at Joe's mom's. That will be even more of a struggle. They don't r
  3. Mark: Happy Saturday! Hope you and the fam are having a wonderful weekend. Yesterday was chaos. My daughter got hurt in her post season soccer game, so we were off to the Dr. last night. But my son was there b/c he goes to college near by, so it actually ended up being a nice evening b/c we went out for dinner after. She's OK. Torn ligaments in her hip. She'll be out a week or more, so tournament next weekend, but life goes on. We're on the home stretch (she's a senior) & she's committed to a College for next year. We just need to get her there healthy. Lol the dinner place my son cho
  4. Welcome Suzy72! I'm telling you...the hardest part is committing. Once you do, the rest will come. Take tomorrow to shop and meal prep and join us on Monday. You will be SOOOOOO glad you did. I'm 6 days in and feeling good. My skin is starting to look better...I actually slept through the night last night. And it will just keep getting better. But stay on this thread and share ur thoughts with us. We're here to answer any questions or offer support. You CAN DO IT!!! Anissa
  5. Welcome Cathy! I honestly don't have a big sweet tooth. Sorry. I do really like raw cashews. So hard to find roasted nuts that don't use peanut oil. I like seedless clementines from time to time. And if I'm REALLY jonesing for a sweet (which is pretty rare), I like a frozen banana sprinkled with 100% cacao powder. I DO, however, DEFINITELY miss a drink in the evening. Or on the weekend with friends/watching football, etc. But obviously, I've done that too much, or I wouldn't be where I'm at. Lol Glad to have another person on this thread. Was just Irishboy and I for awhile there. Although
  6. Guess not. I hear crickets. Lol Long day. Just heading to bed. A little tough watching football tonight and not having a drink. Chamomile tea's not the same. What was your diet like before Whole30? They say the "worse" it was, the more you suffer the 1st few days. I've never really felt a lot of the things on the timeline, although I'm not gonna lie...I am pretty gassy the last couple days. Lol. (TMI - I know.) Hope its my gut digestion getting back on track. And I'm always moody, ask my teens. Hahahha. My boyfriend is sensitive to gluten, dairy, eggs and peanuts, s
  7. That's great, Irishboy! Love it when it all works out. Day 3 is in the books. I'm feeling good. Worked out with a personal trainer today (good friend of mine), and went shopping for a few home gym things b/t clients. I love her and she's teaching me great stuff, but I won't do it forever. Just need to get a solid foundation for lifting and strength training. I've really only ever run before this, and I know I need to do more with strength, especially as I age. Plus, I just don't have it in me to train for a marathon anymore. Love all the food I'm eating. No more meal prep or cleaning them
  8. Good morning, Irishboy! Your omelette sounds delicious. Isn't that always the way?! Lol I'm sure you'll be fine on the 9th. Hell....we'll be 1/2 way through by that point. I feel like it gets easier once you have a little more time invested to say no to temptations. Good luck at work today & hopefully they have some good choices at dinner. How's everyone else doing on here?? Welcome to Day 2, folks!!
  9. Hope everyone had a wonderful day 1! Sitting here with a cup of chamomile tea, watching the Patriots SPANK the Jets (neither are my team) and getting ready to head to bed. The week back after vacation is always exhausting. Gonna make sure I take extra care of myself this week. G'night everyone!!
  10. Same for me. And I agree, nights and weekends are definitely way harder. Welcome Irishboy!! My go-to Whole30 breakfast is 1/2 a sweet potato, 2-3 ounces of steak or ground pork, sauteed kale, 2 eggs over easy and 1/2 andavocado. That keeps me going all day until I can get to lunch. So delicious!!
  11. OK, folks! I'm back, I'm prepped, and I'm ready to go!! I hope this thread gets going... we're doing this tomorrow, and I need all the help/motivation/support I can get! Let's DO this. I want to hear from everyone on this thread tomorrow. Sweet dreams!!! Anissa
  12. Hello! I also starting on the 21st. My name is Anissa. My boyfriend and I are currently in the Dominican having an AMAZING time, but I can already tell I need a reset when I get home. Joe has done a Whole30 with my before. He's choosing not to this time, and I'm OK with that. He is still super supportive. He has a lot of dietary restrictions anyway, which is why he did one before. So we eat fairly "Whole30" anyway. This will be my 3rd Whole30. Always resets my body and my thinking. I've never actually done the reintroduction portion. Which seems kind of nuts. I don't think I have m
