Day 27.... I Can see the finish line..... Really craving some carbs today. That flatbread would be nice right about now. ... But I'll wait.

Tonight's dinner is a crockpot chicken that has been smothered in mustard and coconut aminos..... Sides are Cauliflower rice and onions and steamed Asparagus.

What's everyone doing for Superbowl Sunday?

Hey 1Day.... The recipe you posted is almost identical,to the one I remember cooking. But we use arrowroot instead of tapioca starch. I'm going to make your recipe first thing off whole30. THANKS!!

Busy day babysitting Berkeley (dog). I was having mad cravings for sugar, but instead heated up the rest of the roast chicken I had left, and treated myself to some mashed potatoes made with Kerrygold butter. Very good and I shared the chicken with Berk... he loved it!

I am having a battle inside my head over donuts. I just found out I have a lot of work to do on the state licensing website for my profession. In the past, since I was employed by an approved agency, I just checked a box, and I was done. Now, I have to complete goals, set up a learning plan, and then find all the continuing education credits I have collected since September 2013. This is complex, and I am anxious. Anyway, I know that if I get a good sleep, and then have a pot of coffee and a couple of donuts in the morning... I will be focused and energized for about 3 hours. Sugar and caffeine have always been my go to when I studied in the past or had to complete intense projects that were computer based.
The part of me that has been pretty much sugar free for a while now is scared to indulge, because I realize it is hard for me to have a cheat day and then get right back to eating well. LDT: How did you do it when you ate birthday cake? Didn't it set off cravings or thoughts for the next several days? Any thoughts are appreciated.

1Day...... I was very disciplined with the Bday cheat..... I knew going in that it could only be ONE day..... I ate Mardi gras king cake all day long. That was my preferred birthday cake. Interestingly, the next day I THOUGHT I would want more, but I didn't. And if I did, I just stopped the thought......surfed the urge.....It really wasn't a problem. Having said that, I'm not encouraging you ( or anyone ) to have a cheat day. But if you do, have a finite end in sight and stick,to it. I seem to be able to do that with most things..... except alcohol. No moderation there for me.

Hi LDT:
Thank you for sharing your game plan. I did not do the donut thing today, but also I did not get on the state website either.

I think allowing yourself a whole cheat day may have satisfied the cravings. By allowing myself 2 donuts instead of a whole cheat day, I may be intensifying cravings. I need to make sure what is my rational mind talking, and what is my addictive voice talking. But in no way are you "encouraging" me to cheat... trust me, I have had sugar many times in the past after making a commitment to abstain, no one but myself puts the idea in my head and the food in my mouth!

Eggs & cheddar cheese for breakfast today with hazelnut coffee & milk. We made a mushroom, spinach and garlic pizza late last night and there were a few pieces left over to go with the eggs.

LDT, not sure yet what our Super Bowl plans are, but we might go to our friend's house. He has a huge tv.

LDT you're almost there! Yay! Your meals always sound so delicious as do SoberJennie's.

One egg cooked without oil or butter, avocado and hummus for breakfast with a cup of caffeinated (very rare for me these days) chocolate flavored coffee and sugar free peppermint mocha creamer. Sounds so decadent!

A salad with butter lettuce, peppers, red onion, broccoli, tofu and a bit of goat cheese along with shitake dressing for lunch. So good!

I love this thread! Just discovered it. I love the meal ideas. I am battling a terrible sugar addiction and already read some good stuff here. I think it really kicked in when I quit drinking almost a year ago and my body craved the decrease sugar intake . I fed into it with lots of sweets to combat urges to drink. Now I've got to get a grip. I think I'll set a date and cut out sweets...and then least the obvious like candy, etc. I'm also going to rejoin my gym. It's time to get serious about my health. I can't use quitting drinking as an excuse any more. ..I'll have a year on February 8th. *****. Ok-thanks for being here.

Welcome, HappyandFree! Congrats on 11 3/4 months sober!!

I actually got on the state website this afternoon and did a lot of work, without the need for donuts or caffeine... it was a Higher Power thing!

I had a grilled cheese sandwich with seltzer water for lunch and that provided the mental energy to begin the process of attacking this task!

Feb 1 here in Melbourne and I'm looking to some new health initiatives to carry on with my reasonable tradition.
Thanks for all the recipes and stuff
I'm round 90% vego, v/light on red meat.
Tracked down a great vegan cafe (loving Hut) and incorporate some of their stuff...
As it's still summer here. still pushing salads too!

Nutrition is certainly complex; trying to mix animal care, yumminess, and good for health all into one packet....an interesting hobby.

I've also got some roasted butternut squash soup simmering in the crockpot as I type.

Day 29...... Whole30 Super Bowl Cooking about to begin.

At the risk of being redundant..... I'm going an extra day on this 30 to make up for my birthday. I will be done for the dinner meal on Tuesday....The meal my family has decided will be my first one off W30 is lasagna....We have not made, nor eaten a lasagna in longer than I can remember. Hope I don't kill myself.

Started the day with a tasty green smoothie: handfuls of organic spring greens; coconut water; pineapple; banana; vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt for protein... yummy!

Hi, Heaters.

It's me. With my tail between my legs)

I screwed up epically this week. It actually started last week when I cheated on Whole 30, and then it was like a train wreck.

I ended up with a 3-day binge of potato chips (!!! Haven't had then in almost 2 years!), bread and cheese sandwiches, and on 3-d day I crowned it all with cookies and ice-cream.

I can't even describe how crappy I felt all these day. Like I've been having a constant hangover. I've been sleepy. Crippling headache all day long. Been skipping workout partially because felt no energy, partially because put on weight and was so bloated that was just ashamed to show up there.

It's been a very stressful week for me, and somewhere I just broke.

Now I am back to my normal again. Finally made it to the gym again.

Hope I will get myself together soon.

Best wishes to all the heaters.

Love you all)

Ghostly I totally agree ! If you're going to do it do it well !no point in feeling like shittt. I got home from work yesterday after a 6 week holiday. Was ravenous.

I stopped off at the bakery & knew I was gonna have bread. Haven't been eating it for 3 months. Got 2 mini wholemeal roles & had them with butter & ( yes LDT vegemite ! )

I also ate a finger bun & a dozen kfc nuggets & I enjoyed every single bite.

Today I'm back to lots of water & my Isagenix programme & shall live on that indulging memory for a while.

I think once a week we should give ourselves permission to eat whatever we like albeit in moderation.

Eating is living & enjoyment , I won't be doing 2 shakes a day much longer but I'm thrilled with the 14 kgs I've lost 30lb

Feeling fit and dangerous xxx

I hope you are all doing well
