ginsinnot Posted August 22, 2014 Share Posted August 22, 2014 In the interests of accountability, I'm going to log this Whole 30. I've been off track the last few months and not feeling very happy about it. Recently had a scare where I thought my Crohn's Disease was flaring but turns out to have been an inflammatory reaction to an infection. But it scared me enough to be ready to really commit to getting back on track. I'm starting my W30 on Monday, August 25th. I think this will be my 3rd or 4th? I live with my husband and he'll be compliant when he's home, because I do all the cooking and shopping:) Today I'm treating myself to an order from Tessemae's and Penzey's spices, to start things off on a tasty and easy note. I'll be doing some batch cooking tonight and over the weekend to get some ready to go food into the freezer and fridge so I have no excuses. On the menu: breakfast meatballs (I'll be modifying a breakfast meatball recipe from PaleOMG, cutting out the bacon and maple syrup to make it W30 compliant), ground beef in tomato sauce with mushrooms to be served over zoodles, taco-seasoned ground beef for taco salads, and a big batch of cauli-rice (I'm going to try freezing it so it's ready to go). I'll be stocking up on La Croix sparkling waters because I've been drinking soda and that's often a tough one for me. I'll be focusing a lot on crock-pot meals and batch cooking with freezing. Because I work a regular Monday-Friday job and I'll be hitting the gym after work with my best girlfriend. She's getting married next year and starting an exercise program in prep for trying on dresses in about a month. We've talked a lot and she's going to be a big support and motivator. We've been having a few too many ladies nights focused on food and drinks. I'm lucky to have a great group of friends. So we're planning a series of Sunday Fundays where we get together (spouses, significant others, kids, friends) and play games. We already had a great time playing kickball in the rain a few weeks ago. We've got dodgeball and another kickball game coming up. I'm looking forward to feeling happier and healthier:) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
