SouthernBeth Posted February 2, 2013 Share Posted February 2, 2013 Today is W30 -3. My husband and I had a VERY successful Whole30 experience. Seriously, it was amaze. I posted my Success Story earlier today and I'm really proud of what we've accomplished. Now, on to the hard part: Life after W30! We had decided together that we would be staying mostly W30 compliant even after we finished. We so enjoy the energy and how we feel and we don't want to give it up. That being said, wem iss being as social as we used to, and after reading Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution, I figured we could lean over to Paleo more when we're out being social. Sounds totally legit, right?? Yesterday, we tested the theory. I went out for post-work drink with some other teachers (drinking early- big pro if you drink at all on paleo: won't disturb your sleep) and ordered a NorCal Margarita (which is highly recommended in TPS). It was delicious. I was nervous and yet excited-- I was imbibing again with friends! Like a real person! I had one and about a third of a drink, which was more than enough and I ate some guacamole (with a fork, like a boss). When I met up with my husband, he was finishing off a bloody mary he'd been nursing for the better part of two hours. We were proud. We grabbed some take-out Indian on the way home (no rice or naan, extra vegetables), only to find that the veggies was mostly peas and potatoes. Sad face. Today I woke up with a KILLER headache. No hangover or anything (I never got drunk), but oh, lordy, was I hurting. I suffered through it all day until a couple of hours ago when I gave in and took some ibprofen. I thought maybe a workout would help, to no avail. Maybe I was dehydrated? Not so. I was guzzling water last night and from the moment I awoke. I wasn't all that excited to drink, anyhow, so I can just chalk it up to having a poor reaction and go back to the club soda and lime that I love. We've been W30 compliant all day today and will be bringing our own chili to tomorrow's SuperBowl festivities, plus additional snacks. Evidently in the South it isn't kosher to bring a veggie tray, so we'll also have to provide those on our own. We'll share! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
