A couple of weeks ago, I told you how Spouse and I were embarking on a 30-day dietary shift. We are ten days in, and I thought I’d give you a report on how we’re doing.

I am still sick.

Two weeks ago, I was just starting this awful crapgasm of illness. Last night my head stuffed up like someone had poured snot into it, and my ears feel like I took a bicycle pump to them. I need to go back to the doctor, stat. Persistent cough, achy muscles, I feel like I’m just getting sick all over again. Just when I was starting to get better.

I have lost about a full size. (So has Spouse.)

We’re not weighing ourselves, but my trousers are fitting looser, and I feel smaller. We’ll see in a couple weeks.

Spouse is bored with our food.

Which means we need to bump up the creativity if we’re going to be eating this way for another 20 days. Tonight we’re having pork chops and ratatouille. That should be a nice switcheroo.

That’s it for now. If you have any menu ideas that fit the Whole 30 guidelines (no dairy, grains, legumes, or added sugar), let me know!
