WEEK 3!!! One more week to go (and then reintroduction for 10 days)…and THEN whatever we want to do!
The Parks have gone Paleo now for 3 weeks. For 3 weeks on the Whole30, we’ve avoided all:
- Sugar of any kind (honey, stevia, agave nectars included)
- Alcohol (not even for cooking)
- Grains (including corn)
- Carrageenan, MSG or sulfites
Sooo, how’s it going?
week 3 cons
- Saying no | We’ve had to say no to invites to certain parties, rehearsal dinners, and what not because we know the food has been prefixed and we can’t get our meals customized. So sad.
- Occasional tummy issues| Not as bad as 2nd week but occasionally we’ve discovered our stomachs react funky when we experiment with new spices here and there
- We miss snacking | Saw a big difference when we stopped nighttime snacking – does that make stopping snacking any easier? Nope.
- Dreaming of Whole30 being over | David is having dreams of eating anything he wants. We’re just about one week or more away from that…and his subconscious is breaking.
- Recurrence of certain health issues | Certain symptoms that disappeared have returned, not as full force as they used to – and I’m told it’s a Whole30, not Whole14 or 17 or what not so wait it all out. I’m willing to wait. The pros have outweighed the cons.
- Dishes | Dishes suck. Timesaver tips – please send them my way 🙂

ONE MORE WEEK ’til reintroduction period!!! Then 10 days ’til we’re done. What will we do?!
