Well so far my blog is keeping me pretty much true to my word. Last week I lost 8 pounds on paleo so hopefully this weekend i will lose another one or two pounds I don’t expect big weight loss because last weekend I lost so much. I’m still enjoying the food but I really want some pork chops hopefully I’ll get some this weekend and some weight loss news on Sunday for weigh in day. Work is stressful, grad school is stressful but I’m really enjoying my apples in my almonds they make me smile at the end of the day. Fingers crossed I didn’t gain any weight this week.
Ok I admit it I may have a fruity pebble problem that I’m not ready to give up yet. Yes I had it for breakfast again. And really if cereal is the one bad thing I eat it will be ok. Lol
Lunch was great though I had left overs from last night. I chopped a hamburger up and added broccoli sprouts, edamame, cilantro, and lettuce. I also took half an avacado it it was amazing!!!!
I did pack to much with the apple, carrots and melon. But that’s ok maybe I will try something new and eat them for breakfast instead of cereal lol…..
Yes I took a picture of the bottom of the salad so you can see how pretty real food is. 🙂
Just a note keep the seed with the avacado to keep it from turning brown.
I will say I went a little over board for dinner. I made a shrimp boil with corn and potatoes and paleo sausage. Again yes I know corn is not paleo but I have an over stock of fresh corn from the season so I have to use it.
It was nice to have a little bit of a fancy meal. Lol. Oh I almost forgot I put old bay in the boil.
How can you not like that. The steam made it a little blurry, sorry.
I know people don’t care about what I eat for dinner but I am using this to hold myself accountable. When I weigh in on Sunday I guess it will show if its working or not. Happy Friday Everyone!!!!
So some how I forgot about dinner in the other post. I had a burger with no bun. Then I decided to fill out my dinner with all the fixings. I had lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli sprouts, avacado, edamame and grilled onion. It was very tasty and very light so Im not going to bed on a full stomach. I think I have a new love affair with broccoli sprouts lol.
And another angle lol. …
I started today a little slow with a migraine that never went away. No I didn’t start the day out great with my bowl of fruity pebbles but I turned it around with lunch and snacks.
For lunch I had a salad with bibb lettuce, broccoli sprouts, corn (left over from yesterday), tomatoes and edamame. So yummy!
For snacks I had grapes that I ended up eating with lunch. My morning snack was raw almonds, dried cranberries and raw coca covered acai berries (I didn’t eat it all). I even packed an apple in case I needed a little more something sweet since I was taking those doughnuts to my class today. (So excited I resisted the temptation to eat one.)
Oh yeah I also packed carrots that I didn’t eat. They were suppose to go with lunch.
I’m feeling stronger and less depressed since going back paleo. Maybe this time since I can tell the difference in the way I feel I will be able to make it a perminate change. 🙂
So…. I promised my core 3 Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
I went to the store and bought 3 dozen doughnuts for my class. I really really wanted one but I decided I was just thirsty and ordered a water instead if eating a doughnut.
I was a little skeptical but the water did the trick. I did not eat a doughnut. 🙂 It was another great healthy day. I had eggs for breakfast, a salad with chicken and grapes for lunch and tilapia with corn for dinner (and yes I know corn is not paleo but it is organic and fresh)
Hopefully the junk food with drawl will end in the next few weeks. 🙂 keeping the faith.
Most people love summer. They look forward to it. I am not a fan of summer. I am a teacher I love to work and stay busy, it’s who I am. This summer was the most horrible summer I have ever had. I usually get depressed but for some reason it was really bad this year. I did not get out of bed or leave the house except for about 5 times in the 60 days that I had off work. Because I was so depressed I looked to food for comfort and gained alot of weight back. I am back to work now and I am not as depressed as I was in the summer. I am getting busy again and enjoying every minute of the chaos. I have decide to go back paleo and this time John has decided to do it with me.
Yesterday I had eggs paleo sausage and strawberries for breakfast.
For my lunch yesterday I had a salad with steak. (Sorry no picture) for my snack I had raw almonds, dried cranberries, and dark chocolate covered berries.
And for dinner I had a hamburger patty with tomato and lettuce. (Sorry no picture). It was all so yummy. I almost for got how pretty real food is. 🙂 hopefully I will be back to myself soon. In the mean time I will enjoy my amazing real food and being busy.
So many of you know that since Christmas I have been on and off with the Paleo thing. For those of you that do not know, on Christmas night I fell outside my house and “sprained” my ankle. I waited through the night so I could go to my family doctor instead of paying for a hospital bill. The family doctor said that it was just a very bad sprain, and I was ok with this. I figured I could stay on my diet and just try to stay off of my foot. This worked for about a week, then I felt the need to go to the gym. I decided I would go to the gym and only do my arms and abs. I was happy with this for about a day, I missed running. The next day I called my family doctor and asked when I would be able to run again. Then the nurse said the most awful thing ever…………….She was glad I called because my second set of x-rays came back and they actually showed it was fractured. After that phone call I became very depressed, I stopped working out completely, cried everyday (pretended like everything was ok at home) and even started eating like crap again. It was like summer had returned and I was at my lowest point again. Then on Friday (A work day because of snow) I sat down and talked to some amazing friends and coworkers. we talked about our goals, and supporting each other. This helped be get the jump start I needed, yes my ankle is still messed up. But I think I finally found some exercises I can do and stay on track. Is it running? No, but I have my motivation back. It took me talking to an old friend to realize why I am doing this. Yes I am loosing the weight for me to be healthy and happy with myself but It is also to get revenge on everyone that made fun of me , left me or just plain made me mad. I have this, I can do it and I WILL FINISH STRONG! To my sole sisters out there (the ladies I run with) I will be back soon and I am coming with a vengeance. I dare people to tell me I cant do it, because I will prove them wrong, it will fuel my fire. Thank you for helping me find my motivation. My limits are as follows.
1) Dairy once a day
2) Cheat day once a month
3) Coffee with sugar and cream once a day
4) Exercise EVERYDAY
