PatrickDickey Posted March 2, 2014 Share Posted March 2, 2014 I had originally set my start date to March 1, but wasn't ready to go. Since I work third shift, my "days and nights" are a bit messed up. So I'm going to try and start on March 2, but will definitely start on March 3. For me, it's a matter of prepping some meals, and getting the Day 0 things out of the way first (measurements, weight, pictures, pantry cleaning, etc). I can tell you that the hardest part for me will be these things: Prepping meals in advance. Flipping my eating schedule to reflect my work/sleep/life. Eating vegetables (I typically just cook a meat dish, and call it good. Then I wonder why I'm stopping for donuts in the morning). NOT stopping for my daily donuts and hot chocolate/Cappuccino. Also for me one other hard thing will be to find compliant foods. Even the coconut milk that I chose has sulfites in it. And the "Chicken broth" has non-compliant things in it. I did make some bone broth tonight (I'll see how that turns out in the morning). And even the organic things all have "sugar" in them, or so it seems. I don't have a Whole Foods or anything like that nearby. The closest that I have is a Vitamin Shoppe about 30 miles away. The closest Whole Foods is 130 miles away. I'm going to look into local butchers, but otherwise it's "Hy-Vee" (like Krogers) or Walmart. I haven't decided if I'll go from 7 p.m. to 10 a.m. (my "day") or midnight to midnight, for the daily emails. I guess I should find out if it matters when I click the link for whether or not I did good. Have a great day, and thanks for listening to my long, boring book. Patrick.
