BonnieStP Posted August 3, 2016 Share Posted August 3, 2016 Hello! I am enthusiastic, motivated and excited about the Whole30, and have discovered that some of my local friends have done this, so have great support from them and other friends that I've also told what I'm doing. However, it's Day 2, and I feel like I'm constantly rushing to keep up with the next meal, even with reading in advance and following the suggested first week plan in the Whole30 30 Day Guide. THREE meals per day requiring planning, chopping, mixing, etc. No box mixes, side pastas, short-cut pre-made marinades and flavor enhancers. And constant clean up after. It's an adjustment! I feel an obligation to make every meal something tasty and satisfying, for my husband is doing the program with me and I feel he can benefit even more than the goals I have for myself (his is medical with prescription meds, mine is more to break a sugar addiction and stop snacking, keep weight off after losing it). I want HIM to stay motivated too, and not get bored with the foods. I realize this will get better with practice, have created sauces (mayonnaise, roasted red pepper... tomorrow... adding pesto) and fats (clarified butter and ghee, ground beef fat in a jar) that can hold me over for a few more meals, and that I'll also streamline with advanced prep for pieces of multiple meals, to stop feeling like I'm running just ahead of the next meal. Others must have experienced this bit of overwhelm in the beginning? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
