Some thoughts on Paleo

It seems like the word paleo is becoming more and more popular.  It’s always intrigued me but I have never really seen it as a possibility.  Paleo has always seemd like a lot of work and preparation. But ever since I tried crossfit I’ve wanted to actually try eating paleo for at least a week (or maybe a few days).

The last few weeks I’ve made Skillet Sweet Potato, Sausage, and Spinach Hash for lunches.  It was easy and by making it on Sunday night I was able to eat it for lunch until Thursday.  I have one meal down so all I need to do is focus on is breakfast and dinner.  I think I’ll be able to do it…but since next week is Thanksgiving I’m going to make it my goal for the following week.  It’ll be perfect for one of my goals for Best Body Boot Camp!  Eating Paleo for a week will also make me plan meals before going grocery shopping..which I’m usually not very good at.

Have you tried the paleo diet? If you have a favorite recipe or paleo website let me know! I’m a little excited to go on this adventure for a week, who knows maybe it will last longer.

Wednesday Workout

Bicep/Tricep workout – I did Cleans on Sunday and my wrists were a little sore when I was doing any bicep movement.  Hopefully it’s just sore and nothing that will last a long time.

Row 1,000 m – rowing is not easy!  I try to jump onto the row machine at the gym every once and awhile though because it is an excellent workout!

Stairmaster – 30 min

Healthy lunch!

Just a quick post to say how proud of myself I am right now. (I promise I’m not trying to brag…I just wanted to tell someone!)

Today we are having a team lunch meeting and everyone ordered Portillos.  Even though most of my co-workers are ordering the chopped salad (yum…) I resisted and decided to stick with my lunch I brought from home. A spinach salad with chicken breath, tomato, and some avocado. (I should’ve taken a picture before I shook it up with dressing)

Resisting junk food and desserts has always been my downfall. I haven’t been happy with how I look and feel lately and I’m pretty sure my diet has a lot to do with it. 

This week I really wanted to focus on a cleaner diet and skipping out on Portillos was a pretty good first step.
