  1. Day 11 Meal 1: chicken curry w/ spinach, mushrooms, cauli rice Meal 2: 2 Applegate hot dogs w/ mustard mayo, broccoli, macadamias Meal 3: pork chop, green beans w/ ghee, sweet potato w/ ghee and pecan butter I keep forgetting to post my meals but have been staying compliant. In the past few days I've gotten over the hump of cravings for sweet things and have been feeling good in workouts, so it feels like smooth sailing now. I do have at least one work lunch coming up but should be manageable.
  2. Day 6 Meal 1: shakshuka w/ 2 eggs Post WO: roasted chicken Meal 2: 2 Applegate hot dogs w/ mustard mayo, roasted brussels sprouts Snack: hb egg w/ mustard mayo, Rx bar Snack: couple spoonfuls of almond butter, chai tea made w/ coconut milk Workout: Crossfit, 1 hr dance class My schedule got hectic this evening and I didn't have time for a proper meal before rushing to dance class, and when I got home it was so late I didn't want to eat much, so ended up with a couple of snacks instead of a Meal 3.
  3. Day 5 Meal 1: roasted chicken, butternut squash soup w/ extra coconut milk Meal 2: 2 Applegate hot dogs w/ mustard mayo, green beans w/ ghee Snack: hb egg w/ mustard mayo, macadamias Meal 3: salmon cake w/ caper-dill mayo, small portion green beans w/ ghee, apple w/ almond butter Workout: none
  4. Day 3 Meal 1: roasted chicken, cauli rice, almond sauce Meal 2: hb egg w/ mustard mayo, zoodles, ground beef, tomato sauce, few macadamias Snack: 2 hb eggs w/ mustard mayo, macadamias Meal 3: salmon cakes w/ caper-dill mayo, green beans w/ ghee Workout: Crossfit. Day 4 Meal 1: roasted chicken, butternut squash soup w/ extra coconut milk Meal 2: 2 Applegate hot dogs w/ mustard mayo, green beans w/ ghee Snack: 2 hb egg w/ mustard mayo, macadamias Meal 3: salmon cakes w/ caper-dill mayo, green beans w/ ghee Workout: none Ha
  5. Day 2 Meal 1: roasted chicken, cauli rice, almond sauce Meal 2: hb egg w/ mustard mayo, zoodles, ground beef, tomato sauce, few macadamias Snack: 2 hb eggs w/ mustard mayo, macadamias Meal 3: salmon cake w/ caper-dill mayo, green beans w/ ghee Workout: 2 hrs dance class Definitely missing my dark chocolate habit today... but I've learned those frustrations are confirmation that I need to get back on track.
  6. Day 1 Meal 1: roasted chicken, cauli rice, almond sauce Meal 2/Snack: coconut flakes, macadamia nuts, hb egg w/ mustard mayo Meal 3: salmon cake w/ caper-dill mayo, green beans w/ ghee, spoonful of pecan butter Starting another round (my 5th?). Got a late start today and was doing lots of prep so Meal 2 was more of a cobbled-together snack.
  7. Done! Day 30 was 2/28. I've done reintroductions twice previously with no major issues so decided not to go through the reintro process again this time. I've had small quantities of gluten/grains, dairy, and added sugar over the past couple days (as well as soy, I'm sure), but haven't had any desserts or sweets and most meals have still been W30. I weighed myself yesterday and lost 4 lbs, which is a drop in the bucket right now but I'm still very pleased. It helps to know that all the hormonal disruption I had over the previous year was affecting my ability to lose (or just not gain) weight an
  8. Day 19... almost 2/3 there! Staying compliant has been pretty easy - from previous experience I already have my go-to recipes (and I realized this is actually round 4 for me, not 3!). I'm not feeling a lot of changes in body composition, but my expectations are low in that regard, my main focus is getting out of bad eating habits. I've been having some dates and dried mango that I already had on hand, but I try to eat them at the beginning or middle of a meal so that it doesn't feel dessert-like. So far I haven't noticed that they're creating sugar cravings but I don't plan to buy any more onc
  9. Back again, R3D7 now... the health issues I was dealing with this time last year were more serious than I knew at the time, and the symptoms and side effects over the past year resulted in quite a bit of weight gain as well as poor diet choices. But I had surgery two months ago and should be getting back to normal, so I felt like another W30 would be a good way to snap myself out of the bad food habits. I started on Jan. 30 so that I'd finish on the last day of February, but am just now starting my log again. I know this round will be different - I've lost so much muscle mass that I expect res
  10. Thank you! My eating habits had gone pretty far off the rails by the end of last year, so W30 was definitely a change. I suspect the main problem is that, due to the health issues I've mentioned, I've gone back on the Pill for the first time in almost 15 years. I'm having some other negative side effects as well, and I'm hoping I can work with my doctor to get off of it! I weighed myself this morning and I gained half a pound from my starting weight
  11. Woohoo!! Almost forgot to log Day 30! Meal 1: chicken tikka w/ cauli rice Meal 2: taco seasoned beef, tomatoes, pico, mango salsa, guacamole, clementine, pistachios PreWO: hot dog w/ mustard mayo Meal 3: haddock baked w/ ghee, hash browns, spinach, 2 slices prosciutto, coconut butter Workout: Crossfit I'm excited to be finished and moving on to reintroductions, but I'm also a little disappointed - the changes in my body have been much less significant than my first round. I know I have other health stuff going on right now that probably contribu
  12. Day 29 Meal 1: chicken tikka w/ cauli rice Snack: Epic bites Meal 2: taco seasoned beef, tomatoes, pico, mango salsa, guacamole, clementine Snack: Rx bar Meal 3: 2 Applegate hot dogs, 3 slices prosciutto, roasted broccoli and fennel, mustard mayo, coconut butter Workout: none Had the same issue this morning with my stomach being 'off' and didn't feel very hungry for breakfast, so I ended up hungry for a morning snack and still hungry for lunch too. After I posted yesterday about not doing reintroductions, I thought more about it and decided it's worthwhi
  13. Day 28 Meal 1: 2 turkey/prosciutto/lettuce rollups Meal 2: broccoli, spaghetti squash, ground beef, tomato sauce, Larabar Snack: turkey/prosciutto/lettuce rollup, Epic bites Meal 3: broccoli, spaghetti squash, ground beef, tomato sauce, chicken tikka w/ cauli rice, coconut butter Workout: none My stomach still wasn't feeling great this morning, so went in late to work and breakfast was smaller and later than usual. The broccoli and spaghetti squash wasn't doing it for me at lunch, and I was craving something bland and carb-y that would be easy on my stomach, so I
  14. Day 27 Meal 1: chicken tikka w/ cauli rice Meal 2: broccoli, spaghetti squash, ground beef, tomato sauce, blueberries Snack: Epic bites, pistachios Meal 3: 2 Applegate hot dogs, cauliflower/carrot soup, coconut butter Workout: none I started feeling sick to my stomach before dinner, so I wasn't super hungry and just ate what sounded good. I'm afraid I've overdosed on the pistachios the past few days and that may be the culprit Only 3 more days to go! I'm feeling better, less bloated and my stomach definitely feels flatter. I'm anxious for more/better results
  15. Day 26 (yesterday should have been 25...) Meal 1: turkey/prosciutto/lettuce rollups, cauliflower/carrot soup Snack: Epic bites, pistachios Meal 2: broccoli, spaghetti squash, ground beef, tomato sauce, blueberries preWO: 1/2 turkey/prosciutto/lettuce rollup, pistachios Meal 3: pork chop, roasted broccoli and fennel, mustard mayo, coconut butter Workout: Crossfit I decided to try a quick breakfast with the rollups but they definitely were not substantial enough to hold me until lunch, hence the morning snack.
