Day 8

Day 8 of my Whole 30 and it is going very well. Things got crazy and stressful but I did not outside of my plan! Foods have been pretty much the same. Breakfast is two hard boiled eggs. Lunch is a salad with grilled chicken. Dinner is the only thing that changes. Either chicken or beef with some kind of vegetable or salad with an avocado side.

My mother is still in the hospital. The clot seems to be slowly dissolving and they are letting her out of bed now. It's the blood sugar that isn't getting better. Well, it has gotten a little better, from 609 high to the four hundreds. In the morning it is high 100s and gets increasingly higher as day goes. They are trying to find the right doses of the various insulins she is on. It's crazy. And I'm still not sure she really understands how serious all of this is. Unfortunately, when I've gone to visit there have always been other people there so I haven't had a chance to have a serious discussion with her.

My oldest is graduating college on Saturday so it's back home for her. That usually causes drama and problems with the balance of the household. The little girls get so excited to see her they want to be right up her ass. She finds them exceedingly annoying (more than they really are) and has zero tolerance for them. So that means yelling (from the 22 year old) and tears (from the 10 year old) and more yelling (from the 5 year old, who takes no shit from nobody). Going to be fun.

Hope everyone is rocking their chosen plan!


  1. Oh, the Estrogen Overload... ;)

    Sorry to hear that your mom's sugar situation is still such a mess. Hoping they get it under control and she gets the message that it ain't no joke.

    You are rockin' the hell out of the Whole 30 , my dear. :)

  2. I know how frustrating it can be when you want some one on one time with your mom but visitors make that difficult. On the other hand, it's nice that there are people there...never easy. :(

    Good luck this weekend with your kids.....and awesome job with the whole30!

  3. Your five year old sounds like a riot.

    Congrats on your weight loss so far and for doing well on the Whole30. I plan to follow this plan about 95% or more. I've read the materials and their book, so I know that they would rather you just do the program 100% and not try and make it work for you. I tried that earlier this year and failed. I'm fine with starting at 95% on plan and working to do better. Giving up diet soda and sugar is going to have a huge impact on my life. I can't wait to see some results. Good luck on the program.

  4. Hope everything stabilizes with your mom.
    Congrats to your daughter for graduating - good luck having your 3 daughters under one roof.
    Keep up the terrific work on the Whole30!

  5. Enjoying the Whole30 too, glad you're doing well!

  6. Just saying hi. Sorry to see you stopped blogging.
