Life After 30: Week 1 Recap

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:

  Breakfast Lunch Snack Dinner
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!
