I don’t mind Monday too much, at this point, its just like any other day on this Whole30.  I had some energy today before and after work so that’s a good thing.  I’m missing “good” food though for sure.  Monday is my Pho Soup day, I do dream of Pho Soup.. I just did a quick search on line to see if there are any recipes that would be Paleo or Whole 30 Compliant, I think I’m in luck and will make this recipe from Paleo Cupboard try to make something to appease this craving. I’ve never tried Kelp noodles.. but it’s 100% raw, so I’ll give this a try maybe next weekend when I’m home from Florida.

I started this project with two very cool people, Lily and Jan, two very active people who I seriously look up to, both of these women are athletes who want to improve their health and are motivated by challenges just like I am,  I have a great respect for both of them.    I also had a message from Margaret in New York who found the blog on line and also started the same day, I look forward to hearing about her progress.  Robyn joined in 3 days after and is doing a slightly different program and maybe even more challenging, because she doesn’t eat meat.    So, that’s 4 of us on the same program, I love it.  What’s been fun is the compilation of information that flows in each day, new recipes, new webpages and even notes asking how we’re feeling throughout the day, what a great support system.  It’s been so wonderful I’m very grateful for these ladies. THANK YOU!!



Challenge: not weighing myself..  As I continue on in this challenge, I’d like to actually see the number.. I WANT TO KNOW..

Triumph: I overcame my desire.. today.  Tomorrow’s a different day. I’ll try not to cave and get on the scale.. something is changing.. My clothes are fitting better?… but i have this crazy fear that is constantly lingering in my brain that what if I do all of this, complete my Whole30 and there’s no change on that scale??? Boy will I be pissed!
