  • drink seltzer with lime wedge - it looks cool, but no one has to know it's alcohol-free. sip it, so you always have it in hand if someone offers you another drink: you already have one.

    • But I LIKE to drink, the pressure is from myself I guess, not others. I have successfully done what you said sometimes but most times I want a drink. I have given up beer (sigh, my FAVORITE) but can't seem to give up the rest of it. boy, that sounds like I have a bigger problem doesn't it? hmm.

        you can make hard-boiled eggs in the micro. you can bring or get a few bowls for making salads and veggies. canned fish works well, since it stays fresh until you open it. maybe find or make beef jerky to take along, and go shopping for fresh foods when you arrive. bring a can opener, too!

        I would agree that your husband has it way harder than you in regard to remaining primal. He can't go shopping and select his own foods - he's fed what the Army feeds him, and from experience, while it's better than some options, it's certainly not primal! I feel for him - both b/c he's overseas away from family in a danger zone, but also b/c he cannot easily feed his body the way he wants to. Kudos to him for even attempting!

        • The weekend is behind us! What amazes me is that in the past, I would struggle with weekends. I'd do amazingly well during the week and then totally fall off the wagon on the weekends and run to catch up come Monday and finally catch up come Wednesday, only to fall off again come Friday.

          This hasn't happened but maybe 2 times since switching to the Primal Blueprint March 5... It has happened once since doing the Whole30. Lost my bearings, ate cupcakes, cookies and boneless buffalo wings. Paid the price too. Oy, was it bad.

          I love how easy it is to remain on track with this lifestyle. It's so easy!

          Today, the scale read 198. That's a 2 lb loss over the weekend alone. In my history, I would typically gain 2-3 lbs every weekend and spend most of the week losing them again. Not anymore. Now I can officially say that I LOSE WEIGHT over the weekend.

          I love it! I may actually keep my whole30 going into July. Haven't decided yet. I do miss my cheese.

              People do get pissy, don't they, when you don't eat their sugary treats! But good for you for sticking to what's working for you!

              • Had a horrible weekend...the antibiotics I'm taking makes me nauseous. I tried to eat whole30 but after not being able to hold anything down my hubby bought me crackers and ginger ale...after feeling better I began to eat whole30 again but it didn't last...I feel terrible but I know that I will need to finish out my antibiotics before I can continue back on whole30...In the mean time I will be doing 80/20 as much a possible...I hate to undue the good I've done...

                  What about bone broth? or soup made with bone broth? Broth is soothing to an upset tummy just as much as crackers and ginger ale, which allowing you to remain Whole30.

                    • wow, u guys could be in my head.. I feel the same about drinking alcohol, I absolutely lovedddd it, all kinds, but couldn't stop at 2 like most people, I wanted 5, too.. heehee So I finally gave it up completely. Also the weekend problem.. I had no worries sticking to any kind of diet during the work week, but let the weekend come and all hell was let loose. It was like work was over so let's party.. so I'd eff up any good I'd done watching every calorie/carb during the week.. so depressing come monday morning, plus most of the time I'd feel physically ill.

                      This whole 30 is so awesome, it's gotta be the fat that I used to watch so carefully, also the fruit allowed that atkins and low carbers always frown on, but the weight is coming off.. I haven't weighed but I know what pants I can zip now so I'm sure since reading Mark's book, starting the very next day, end of April, I've lost probably 18, maybe even 20 lbs. I'm doing Whole 30 again in July and going exactly by the book, which I loveee and highly recommend. By labor day I'd like to be at ideal weight, 145, the number my strict doctor told me to be, well, she said 150ish but 145 sounds better I'm 5'9" and always thought I was 'big boned' but she put her fingers around my wrist and said, no, you're 'average boned'.

                      Have got my swimming in today and did 2 miles on TM, will do 2 more at 8pm, makes me sleep greattt. Exercise is really helping me stay in a good mood and helping me stick with it. I think I'd feel deprived and would reach for one of those frozen dove bars in the freezer, instead I just reach for more frickin' water

                      • Love hearing all of your positive experiences! Keep it up! . I enjoy having a scheduled eating time during the week, so when it comes to the weekends I feel so unstructured! I'm a teacher, totally type A. With summer right around the corner I'm having anxiety about being home more and having tons of food accessible. I want to avoid snacking!!! I think I'll be fine though, But it's always in the back of my head.

                        I finally found some dates! OMG what have I been missing. I'll need to NOT keep those around over the summer

                        • You folks are all wonderful! I love the seltzer/lime drink idea when at a party.

                          Last night, I totally binged on junk food. Realized: A) Hagen Daaz vanilla is freaking phenomenal and B) store-bought cookies are yucky. (Ate them anyway.) Also had pretzels (tasted stale; ate them anyway) and chocolate chips on the ice cream (meh, could have done without it).

                          Today I'm eating better. I did have a number of rice cakes, as well as store-bought mayo instead of making my own, but other than that, I'm doing all right eating-wise. Emotionally, I'm up and down -- which is worlds better than down and sobbing. I kicked the hell out of my TKD bag earlier, and did a number of jabs to boot. I did 2 sets of beginner pull ups. And later, I'll get on my exercise bike for 30 minutes before doing Convict Conditioning. I may be a mess, but that's no reason not to exercise.

                          Thanks again for all your support, everyone. You all rock.

                          • Day 18: B: Bulletproof coffee - so yummy! a.m.: black coffee. L: Chicken salad, with onion and mayo. Fresh strawberries, tea. p.m. radishes. Supper: Boneless sirloin end pork chop, fried in ghee, brussel sprouts, also with ghee. Evening: tea, a few more of the lovely local strawberries.

                            Weight bounced up a little this morning, not sure why. Maybe too much of the short ribs? But they were soooooooo good! So I had the bulletproof coffee this morning to compensate. I like it a lot, and what an easy breakfast on a work day!
