Paleo Journey

Happy Mothers Day beautiful people! You may have noticed a small gap in my journal this past week.  Sorry for that, but my dear grandfather passed away.  So you might guess that my blog has not been my top priority. This is another very real, but sad part of rolling with my diet.  I did however lose 6 more pounds this week, so I didn’t fall completely off the wagon.  I have has some great meals, some ok meals and some oh-not-so-paleo-meals!  That being said, I learned a few things. 

I am liking our cross fit workouts.
Low carb pasta makes my tummy hurt!!!
Red velvet waffles are super delicious, and they also hurt my tummy 😦
I am sick of asparagus!

Hope these things are helpful, amusing!

Back with the paleo journal tomorrow.

Paleo Food Journal-Day 2

Day two was an exciting day around our house, and not in a good way. Little M, my 15 month old had a pretty severe allergic reaction and we spent most of the afternoon at the pediatric office and emergency room. This morning, he is much better, thank god. I am also happy to report that I didn’t fall off the paleo wagon. Now let me branch off for a second and say that my intent is not to be unrealistic in my goals for a healthy body, sometimes you have to just roll with it and do the best you can. Ok, so now to the journal part.

Breakfast:
2 eggs fried in ghee
Coffee

Cross fit style workout at home with my hot hubby! (In the rain, that counts as being extra bad a$$, right?)

Dinner:
Pork roast with baby carrots and kale
I had a small portion because I didn’t get to eat until after we got home, and I was exhausted.

Calories were kinda low for the day, but my focus is not calories, but instead just eating real food! Here is the macro breakdown.

That covers day 2. I am thrilled with my progress thus far, gonna push on with my motivation.
