Jan 2 was the start of my Paleo Diet. I have to say this is the best diet I’ve ever tried. I haven’t felt deprived at all. Surprisingly! The basic concept is to eat until you full of organic veggies, lean grass feed and free range meats. I’ve been drinking unsweetened tea and water.
Here is a quick chart of my meals this week:
|Monday||Bacon & eggs||Chicken w/salad||Nuts & raisonsPickle spear||Slow cooker chicken and rice|
|Tuesday||None||Chicken w/broccoli||None||Slow cooker chicken and kale soup|
|Wednesday||Apple & bacon||Salad w/chicken||Sweet potato||Slow cooker Beef stew|
|Thursday||Apple w/ egg and sausage bake||Salad w/ tuna||Bacon||Slow cooker beef stew|
|Friday||Apple w/ egg and sausage bake||Slow cooker beef stew||sweet potato||Slow cooker meatballs and sauce w/ broccoli|
|Saturday||apple w/egg and sausage bake||salad bar w/balsamic dressing||almonds||buffalo snack wings w/broccoli|
|Sunday||apple w/egg and sausage bake||sweet potato||sweet potato||buffalo snack wings w/broccoli|
I was sick with cold on Monday and Tuesday i stayed home to sleep and get better. I’ve been trying to cut out all added sugars but who knew that cough drops and cold medicines had so much sugar in them?!
I also ended the week sick, the cold came back with a vengence. I spent half the day Saturday and all day Sunday curled up in the bed with chills and cold sweat. Not fun! But I was able to stick with the Paleo plan, even though I wasn’t very hungry and didn’t eat very much. through all of this I was able to lose 11 pounds. Down to 236.5 on my weigh in Jan 9!
The next step is to add exercise into my routine. The last time I worked out to a video on exercise tv, the site is now defunct but luckily I found the video on youtube.
One of my coworkers asked me to walk with her in the mornings. Friday was our first day. I took a half hour from my planning time and we walked around the gym too many time to count. I did break a light sweat.
I plan to begin the boot camp video on Monday. Why don’t you join me? What are some of your favorite exercise videos? Let me know in the comments!
