Starting August 20!

Recommended Posts

Hi All! 

Our starting August 4th Group has several of us starting the 20th or restarting then. If you all choose to come over to a larger group full of resources, you are more than welcome! Just thought I’d officially invite you. Either way be sure to be encouraged! You got this thing!

Blessings!

Re start on 20 Aug. Messed up this morning. After working 24 hours I went out to breakfast with the team. Lets just say you should never go out to eat when you are over tired.

I’m starting today also! I’d love to join your group! Feeling a bit like I’m on an island, as I live in France and I’m pretty sure no one here has ever heard of Whole30!

I restarted today and was doing good until I discovered my sunflower seeds had not only cornstarch but sugar too. So looks like I'm restarting again tomorrow.

How did everybody’s first day go? Is anyone else following the 7 day meal plan? I’m a teacher on my last few days of vacation, so I was able to make my frittata this morning. I had a meeting at church from 6:00-8:30 pm. I was annoyed that they scheduled it at dinner time, but a lot of participants are retirees, so I figured it was after their dinner time so I had a late lunch to prepare myself for a late dinner. I got there to find tables set and a spread of pizza and salad and a mountain of cookies. I didn’t even have salad or grapes since I didn’t have any protein or fat to go with it. It was late when I got home and I hadn’t made spaghetti squash yesterday so instead I spiralized some summer squash and sautéed it with salt and pepper and ate that with my meat sauce. I may never want pasta again! That was so good. Now I really want some fruit and I’m trying to fight it, but if I let my dinner settle and I’m still hungry, I may have a few cherries and cashews.

I stopped at Trader Joe’s  on my way home and found that they have single serve cups of apricots and almonds. I bought a package to keep one with me at all times in case I don’t have access to real foods. I may also buy some jars of baby food to keep at school. I carried baby food with me in grad school to boost my veggie consumption. People look at you strangely, but if it’s between weird looks and starting the plan over again, I’ll take the looks, thank you!

I feel optimistic and in control today. I hope your Day 1 went well, and wish you strength and the resolve to do this for yourself as we head into Day 2!

Peace!
Andrea

Hello Friends!  I started yesterday, too.  I've done a few successful Whole 30s, but it's been a couple of years.  It's always easier when you have a gang to check in with, so I'd like to join you for the month!  It will come with some challenges, my only son goes off to college Friday, and my husband and I are going on a cruise in early September. I figured that should be an easy place to eat well, since they will cater to every food need  - we'll see!

My latest prompting to do another Whole 30 is that I've had poison oak and poison ivy this summer that will not resolve.  Whole30 has really helped with other skin conditions in the past, and I'm hoping this will help me kick it.

Have a great day 2!

@CCLaymon,

My daughter is a senior this year. I'm so not ready for her to go off to college, Good eating on the cruise. You might want to take your own olive oil for your salads. Also, check with the cruise line and ask about the food prep.

OK if I join in with your group? I am officially starting on my first Whole 30 August 24th with my husband as that is when his vacation starts, but I have been mostly compliant since Friday. 

The headaches for the first 3 days were really something! I am noticing increased productivity, perhaps relating to no more wine with dinner. Anyone else experience this?

@LydiaJo thanks for the tip on planning ahead - very smart!

@Mandy612 I'm laughing about the wine - it's bound to make a difference!  I usually find that I get Tiger blood sometime in week 2 - wait until you get that coursing through you!

I purchased the Whole30 Day by Day book today. I like the idea of having an extra shot of motivation each day.  My day 2 went well, although I had some snacks cravings in the afternoon. 

How did everyone else do?

Greetings Fellow Whole30’ers!!

Whoot Whoot Day 3! I have a busy day but desperately need to get to the store for more supplies! What was that I read about being prepared before you start??? LOL!

Almost messed up Day 2 by being gone all day and ill prepared. I wasn’t counting on being gone all day. Prepare for the unexpected! Right??

This morning I’m sipping on some pure Earl Grey Tea. Had half an avocado, some leftover chicken, and veggies.

I’ve got my Whole30 book near me and Day By Day. I’ll read up and get a move on.

How is everyone else doing????

Be Encouraged!

Dianne

Isn't the Day by Day book the best? I normally write in the Five Minute Journal every day but Day by Day will replace that for the month. Love your breakfast @Hope4Overcomers !
