Dirty 30 8/21 Start

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! A quick check in from South Carolina.  I did post on Sunday at the airport from my phone but LOST IT!  I have been taking Deb's advice to start in Word when I'm on the computer.

 

I thank everyone for their wisdom about letting Sam find his way. I've been stressed to be away this week - so much band stuff going on. But Sam has stepped up in an amazing way. He told me he fell asleep last night without doing math - woke up at midnight - and did his homework before going back to bed! A trooper for for sure!  Lynn I love that your son tried all kinds of new things when given the chance. I will have to keep that in mind!

 

Deb - no IODs since we're traveling, but pumpkin and apple for sure when we return!

 

Miki - If you're checking in I hope you're having fun!!

 

Higs - I wasn't quite clear. Is Thursday when you leave for the backpacking trip you've been training for? I hope you have a terrific (injury free) time!!

 

Rick and I really have gotten used to eating Whole 30 while traveling. We definitely miss drinking, though!  We were seeing clients yesterday evening. They sent an email and said "we'll be eating at the house - lasagna and garlic bread."  I FREAKED OUT!  (Those of you who shared my first Whole 30 will remember my #1 rule, "Do not try to eat Whole 30 at someone else's house!"  I picked up the phone and said - please let us take you to dinner. We're on a crazy food plan, and I would never subject someone else to it! LOL  They were very understanding. And I'm proud of myself for speaking up, not just eating what they prepared in an effort not to offend. Truth is, few people are offended by our choices when we're honest.

 

Triathlon is on SATURDAY!!!  Sunday I did a 25 mile bike and 5.5 mile run, so I feel I'm ready. Today Rick and I did an ocean swim - he did really great! It's mostly a rest week for me leading up to Saturday.  It's been 47 degrees in the morning in NJ lately - I wonder how could I'll be in a swim suit?  :huh:

As you begin to feel better......tell everyone! A positive outlook is going to be your best friend thru all of this. If you expect to fail...you will! Tell yourself .....(don't listen to anyone else)  that this is going to be different, this is going to work. You aren't drinking some shake that "melts away the fat", you aren't on the grapefruit diet, you aren't counting calories or "points". If you have done these in the past...they failed you because they never taught you how to eat healthy! THIS is going to be different! In 30 days you will have definitive proof that it worked. Until then, you might get better sleep, more energy, less acid reflux, better digestion, bowel health, better skin, relief from allergies, joint relief, loose fitting clothes, stronger nails and hair, (one girl from our last group got a better paying job but I don't want anyone to believe that is a normal benefit), and you have more self confidence. You will have succeeded where you had once failed.

Lynn-I removed my posts before I decided to change my display name. Not "trying" to be stealthy. (Although I swear my car has a cloaking device that engages every time I get inside to drive, illustrated by the number of other drivers that evidently don't see my car!)

Meadow-are those quotes from ISWF?

A couple of updates. I got lab results back. I don't know yet what all of the numbers equate to medically, but my overall cholesterol improved by 60 "points"!

And as far as being "done" with this round. I've decided that I am going to eat Whole30 the majority of the time, with an occasional day here and there off plan. I'm not going to plan the off days, but if something should come up (like an upcoming team lunch), I'm going to allow myself to go off plan that day, then go right back to my new normal.

It has been very quiet here lately.

Sissy, that's off-the-hook great.

At home now!     It is good to be back with my boys, but I am going to miss the farm life!   

 

Deb-  just by chance I had rutabaga today as part of a mix of root veggies!   That is the best I have ever done to check off the IOD.   I liked them-  slightly sweet- so I may need to add to my rotations for roasting. 

 

Sissy-  60 points!  60 points-   really truly amazing.  My brother in law has hereditary high cholesterol-  I talked a bit about the Whole30 to him, but you are like the walking example to share with him.   good for you!

 

good night friends.... sleep well!
