Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.
It’s funny… I talk to people all the time that say they can’t stick to a diet lifestyle like Paleo because… they crave different kinds of foods, they couldn’t live without bread, and eating the same thing everyday sounds boring. Well let me tell you, as much as you like to think of your body as some hard to figure out, choosing machine, it’s not.
I guarantee that if you stick to the Paleo diet for 6 months, you won’t crave things, you will never care about eating bread (or grains), and you’ll feel WAY better than you do now, with way more energy.
I forgot to mention… if you need to loss weight, you probably won’t have that problem anymore either.
Your body is actually a machine, but you have to cleanse yourself of the junk and stimulations that you’ve been getting for the last (who knows how many) years of your life.
Feeling Great!! 5K training
Running and crossfit felt great
Beth’s CrossFit Weight Loss Challenge stats:
Weight lost: 34lbs. Beth had a bit of a rough time and gained 6 pounds, but bounced right back by losing 5 pounds. We all have tough times, and progress is never linear (no matter how much we want it to be).
This week’s CrossFit workouts
A. 2 mins of jump rope (post total)
B. 3 rounds for time of:
20 lunges (10 each leg)
3 rounds for time of:
10 modified handstand push-ups
20 sumo deadlift high pulls w/20 pound backpack
30 second plank
Run 2 miles for time
50 bench dips
50 single under jump ropes (or attempts)
Meals from last week
Paleo meatballs and spaghetti squash.
Paleo brownie. Even though this is Paleo, it’s still a cheat food. Making something Paleo doesn’t automatically make it a free food.
Pork omelette and bacon.
Salad with onions, tomato, mushrooms, vege burger, couple of croutons, and some dressing.
Salad with onions, tomato, mushrooms, trader joe chicken salad,croutons, and artichokes.
Trying coconut milk this week in my coffee.
