    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 instead...it'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, so as a general rule, we steer clear of most of that stuff. Well...he does totally. I do mostly out of solidarity and b/c I generally eat lower carb b/c of my family's genetic predisposition to diabetes. 
    Have you ever run a full marathon before? I've done 2. I think I'm done. I just don't have it in my to run that far anymore. I've considered triathlons in the past. I have a bike, but haven't ridden in years, and I'm not a strong swimmer. Plus, I loathe cold water. Lol. But it honestly does sound intriguing. I run with a group of 6-8 women. We do all sorts of stuff together. If ONE of them would do it with me, I'd try...once. 7 of us run this race each year called Seneca7. It's a 77.7 mile relay race around Seneca Lake. It take about 12 hours. It's a crazy day, but super fun. We plan to do it 7x, each of us taking a different leg each time. That way we will all have effectively run around the entire lake ourselves. This April will be our 5th time.
    Anyway, I'm rambling. Off to bed. Hope you have a good day tomorrow. With NO headache! Day 4 done. 
    Onward we go!

    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!!!

    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 really even get Joe's good issues, but they try. I have to work late that day, so I'm hoping to just show up, hang for a bit, then go home and eat my own food. It's really about seeing family, not eating anyway. hopefully they will understand. Not everyone does, which can be frustrating. Anywho... positive thoughts.
    I haven't worked out much this week. Always busy with work, and just a little more tired than normal. Trying to listen to my body. The most important thing is Whole 30 at this point. I do have a session with my trainer friend Wednesday & Friday this week. Maybe I'll try and hit the gym with Joe this weekend.
    I love WhatsApp. My mom is in Spain right now and is sending me the coolest pics!
    Congrats on getting some runs in. I'm glad you're feeling good.
    Off to get ready for the day! Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday.

    Hello! I’m wanting to start whole 30, but am currently struggling with committing to it. My plan is to begin Monday the 28th.

    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!!

    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 normal, honestly, with all of Joe's dietary restrictions. It does get expensive, though. Which is frustrating. Why is the most healthy food to put into our bodies also the most expensive?? It makes it almost inaccessible to those on a budget, or who don't prioritize it (although that's not always true.) Anyway, rant over.
    Still not sleeping amazing, though I rarely do. So hard.to turn my head off at night. But hopefully that will come. I definitely feel less "puffy", especially since coming back from vacation and all the eating/drinking shenanigans that went on there. Lol
    Glad to be getting back on track and looking forward to a very busy (work mostly) yet smooth Whole 30 weekend. Hope everyone is doing well in their first week. Would love to hear how everyone's making out!
    G'night!!

    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!!

    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!!

    Hi Sewdarncrafty, I'd love to start next Mon, the 21st.  Well, "love" is a strong word.  I know already that I need an accountability partner to stay on Whole30.  I will just treat this Whole30, my third, as my initial one.  I just bought an InstaPot, so will be experimenting with that.  The reason I'm heading back to Whole30 I'm just hitting the carbs too heavy!
