    Good point. Getting him to eat breakfast (per the Whole30 plan) and maybe dinner with me, without snacking/drinking in the evening will definitely be better for us both.

      I have truly fabulous coworkers. They found out about my current diet plans and have started teasing me... They are celebrating birthdays this afternoon (a different department so I wouldn't normally be involved anyway) with cake and ice cream. Another coworker is apparently selling candy bars for a fundraiser. My neighbors (in the other dept) are teasing me about going and looking at what is available. I offered to buy one for them. Lol

      Seriously people! Way to support your coworker and friend. Haha.

      Truth is I know they support me.

      I do wonder if I can use this torture for my defense.

        Yeah my cooworkers are similar, since I gave up all sugar this month. It's constant 'omg you're too healthy' etc etc. But you can tell there is some envy involved because they can't stop shovelling donuts in their faces and are overweight. There are some people in the office though that gave me props for the whole 30 when they found out what it entailed.

        Dates - yeah I've never frozen them, but I bet it would be good! You could freeze them whole or cut them up. Then blend them into protein shakes/smoothies as an when you want them. Or as a snack it would be good because it would take so much longer to eat.

        Good luck on the hubby - I plied mine with heaps of tasty PB fare at dinner (so he didn't even realise he was eating PB) and plenty of bacon, eggs and sweet potato. A way to a man's heart....

          Yeah we'll see how it goes with the hubby. Hopeful anyway.

          Day 4 yesterday ended well, though I did feel a bit more rundown than usual. Had pumpkin pudding after dinner also. Half portions each time so total of one for the day

          Started this morning with coffee as usual. Really hungry though. Had lamb and carrots for breakfast. Hungry again a few minutes ago so had one ounce of macadamia nuts. Been drinking water and tea all morning.

          BAS for lunch. Not sure about dinner yet...

            Craving sugar. Definitely not hungry though. One more hour until I can leave work.
            Maybe some tea will help. Water isn't cutting it.

              Hi Zee,

              I read this thread because I want to do Whole30 next month. You're doing great!

              I lived in Spokane from 1998-2001 and loved it. I interviewed for a job there last year and was heartbroken when I didn't get it.

                Hi Violet, thanks for stopping by and providing encouragement. I have lived in Spokane since 1985, minus about six months when we moved to the Seattle area. Its such a great place to raise a family.

                Day 4 is just about over. I came home from work and finished my last workout for Stage 2 of NROLFW, which included HIIT. Showered then cooked up some turkey burgers in olive oil. No veggies... cup of tea to wash it down.

                Going out to lunch for my birthday tomorrow with coworkers. Mongolian. I should be able to stick to meat, veggies and ... Well, oils might be a little off plan. Going to another birthday lunch next week. I think that will be Mexican food and I'll have taco salad, without eating the shell.

                Tired now, will have to catch up on other journals this weekend

                  Curious if you've had cravings or how your hunger levels feel. Sounds like you're right on course!
                  Never argue for your limitations.

                    I was just in your journal mentioning my cravings - didn't even realize you'd posted here! Ha! As for my hunger levels, they've been a LOT better than pre-Whole30. Other than yesterday morning (which those macadamia nuts satisfied), I really haven't been hungry until mealtime. Even then, my hunger doesn't have the urgency it used to... and I don't turn into a raving ornery beast until I eat! I'm much happier.

                    My husband came home from work while I was eating my dinner last night. He had stopped by the store on the way home and picked up sausage for my breakfast at my request (are those okay on Whole30 or am I pushing it here...they sounded good). He also saw some sort of steak wrapped with bacon that he bought for me... "I'm not sure if you can have these but I saw them and thought maybe you'd like it". YES PLEASE! It's not organic or grass-fed but I'm okay with that.

                    It's Friday! My official schedule allows me to work a shorter day today, going in an hour later and leaving an hour earlier. With a major project in the works, I'm not sure how that's going to play out... and I'll likely have to work tomorrow. But, I'm going in at my usual, later time. That gives me extra time this morning to get some things done.

                    Breakfast this morning will be hazelnut coffee (black as usual this week), 3 eggs and 3 sausage links. Thinking... veggies. Hmm. I have trouble with veggies for breakfast, other than onions. Oh! I have fresh pea pods... that'll work!

                    Lunch as I said will be out for Mongolian. Dinner shall be steak and bacon wrapped yumminess, with steamed broccoli. Then I must purchase more veggies as I'll be out of options.

                    On to Day 6!!!

                      Since this is my journal (and not Facebook where all my friends and family are reading...yet anyway), I want to take a moment to say... I'm worried about my brother E. He's got medical issues going on right now, can't work because of a seriously high pain level yet no insurance. No money to speak of. Nothing. He's lying on a couch/bed all day and night, struggling just to breathe, with steroid meds from a lung dr but no pain meds other than ibuprofen... which he takes WAAAAY too many of to take the edge off. He's seriously wasting away because he isn't able to eat.

                      I just sent messages to his girlfriend again to MAKE that man eat... puddings, yogurt... drink protein shakes, milkshakes, chicken soup/broth... anything to get some nutrition in him. He's skin and bones right now.

                      We have some past issues that I'm truly mad at him for, and he knows it. He's made promises after promises, really ruined relationships with all of his siblings, nieces, nephews... his own daughter (who lives with her mom thousands of miles away from him right now). As I told coworkers yesterday, he's an ass. But he's still my brother. I still love him.

                      No one should have to live like he is right now....

                      I just don't know if there's anything more I can do to help him get the help he needs. I have to work full time, live half an hours drive from him and can't be his advocate as much as I'd like. I don't know if his GF is doing everything she can... I want to believe she is but it's so damn hard when I see him lying there.

                      I stopped by yesterday over my lunch hour (hour and a half...oops) just to bring him ibuprofen and TP that he asked for. And pumpkin pie. I hope he eats it.

                      And now I'm going to be late to work... gotta leave in 10, haven't dressed or had breakfast yet. Spent the past hour researching advocacy and free medical/whatever whatever assistance.

                      Happy Friday. Blah.

                          Thanks!!

                          So breakfast was actually 2 hard boiled eggs and the fresh pea pods. I'll have proper fried eggs and sausage tomorrow when I have more time. Lunch was Mongolian... lots of fresh veggies with beef and chicken, assorted oils and whatnot (not great choices maybe but okay). My bacon steaks are cooking now.

                          Then I'm going roller skating, where I'll meet up with my younger son's girlfriend. Also dragging my husband along. Play time!!

                                Hubby and I had fun skating. Sons gf didn't show until after we left. I knew she had a prior obligation so no worries. Next Friday maybe. I got new skates! Have to break them in. They're rather slippery at the moment. I had one whoops moment when I almost took down a 3-year-old. Luckily her mom had hold of her and I didn't hang on for long. Embarrassing moment of the day.

                                Can't wait until my son comes home to skate with me again.

                                Been thinking about getting a tattoo. Found the artist so now just have to pull the trigger. Have the design in mind already.

                                Time for some pumpkin pudding!! Going to watch Brave with my hubby and likely fall asleep on the couch.

                                Night!
