We just finished day 21!!! So excited to see how my cholesterol check goes tomorrow, I am hoping my egg heavy breakfasts don't set me back. DW and I went to the state fair this past weekend, we were surrounded by all the food and beer temptations you would expect at the event. We made it through without a fail, though we were famished when we got home 6 hours later. We had planned to try our first "eating out while on the Whole 30" when those plans fell apart. I learned to pack a lunch if away from home that long!
9 days to go, I'm starting to decide what I might try first, DW is only going to add rice and maybe beans back eventually, she is enjoying being allergy free.
How did it go with your cholesterol check? I'm be curious! I really wish I had gotten a full physical and bloodwork done before I did my first round so I had those benchmarks, but it is a pain to get in to see my doc and it's in a different city, and I am lazy :)
Can you update us a little more on your wife's progress? You said she's enjoying being allergy free, but what symptoms have alleviated for her? Have you guys noticed anything different in energy levels and/or sleep quality?Mom22boys
- good to hear from you! That is a lot of travel! I have found that if I can hit up a grocery store in each new city I'm at when I arrive, (or just know what is close by, it really helps!) Although I was trying to find anywhere in the Airport that had almond milk for my coffee in several airports in the Southern US and had zero luck. Well I did find one place, but when I got my coffee it was chunky like yougurt. Almond milk doesn't generally curdle like that...Screwit
- How are you doing? everything okay with the minor operation and life? Planning to still start again on Friday?M.Darcy
- It is awesome that you have a plan and goals! With your fruit intake and exercise - just be really aware of your body, especially at the beginning. Your energy levels may dip, you may be detoxing and adjusting to a different way of eating, so you might not have the energy initially for strenuous workouts. Listen to your body and don't push it, or you will be more miserable. When people update, can you let us know which day you are on?
I want to help celebrate your successes and track where on the timeline everyone roughly is, but I am keeping track of too many people all starting at different times both on the forums and IRL so that would be a huge help!
My best friend, and her husband, and I are on day 5. My mom and sister are starting another round on Monday, my Cousin-in law is starting on the weekend.
For fun, I tried on my wedding dress this morning. It's been three years to the day, and I was at my heaviest weight ever when I got married. It's a corset style dress, and it doesn't stay up on me anywhere now, actually I look rather like I'm wearing a tent. Never been happier, or healthier :)
