This has been a very exhausting and busy week. Early mornings. Late nights. Lots going on. So three days worth of Paleo project blogging…and…Go.
This week is pretty much summed up with “I ate out, and I managed to stick to the Paleo diet.” But I’ll go into some detail.
Tuesday (Day 27) was my birthday. The big 3-1. I started it off with a smoothie and turkey bacon, followed by a morning meeting at Starbucks and a grande bold. For lunch, Ben took me out to Moes where I got a salad with steak and veggies. For supper, I grilled a steak and microwaved a sweet potato. I probably had a snack of nuts and maybe an apple. I can’t really remember everything I ate, but I know I’ve stuck to the Paleo diet so I’m good. I did have some dark chocolate because my sweet sis-in-law surprised me while I was teaching at the college. She brought the class cupcakes and me a mix of nuts and dark chocolate (along with flowers and a balloon).
On Wednesday (Day 28), I had a smoothie and bacon for breakfast. (That’s my pretty standard breakfast these days). I didn’t grocery shop over the weekend, so I have very little food around to have for lunch and dinner. I had to run to church during my lunch break to film the announcements, so my sister-in-law and I went out to Crispers afterwards. I had their trio of small dishes – a garden salad (no dressing), a lean turkey burger and a beef patty (both on lettuce instead of buns). I had some almonds and cashews for a snack. For supper, hubs and I went out for a private little birthday dinner. We went to Chilis and I had the steak fajitas without all of the stuff I can’t have. Just meat, peppers, onion and pico. We also got some Starbucks afterwards.
Today (Day 29) started off with more turkey bacon and another smoothie. For lunch, I had a salad with some turkey, veggies and olive oil on it. I had a pack of almonds for lunch. For supper, we had my family birthday dinner at Outback. I had the Victoria’s filet with grilled asparagus and sweet potato fries.
I can’t believe that tomorrow is Day 30 already! It really did go by fast. I still feel phenomenal. My stomach hasn’t bothered me in weeks. My skin is better. My seasonal allergies are pretty much gone. I’ve lost 11 pounds. My energy level is up. I don’t go from starving to hungry to starving to hungry all day long…my blood sugar is very level. My mood has been much better. Really, everything is.
At this point, my plan is to continue doing what I’m doing. I’m not going to add anything back in right away. And when I do, the first thing I’m adding is a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks!
