``Consider The Inner Cavewoman Released! (rosalynS Journal)
SO I'm not sure about this whole journal thing, however, when I try new things I like to give them a fair chance and put 110% in because that's the only way to go when trying new things, or at least for myself. Starting it off, I'm a 20yr old female, first year nursing student, and that whole "freshman fifteen" that everyone is talking about, ya I don't think so, not on my watch anyways! SO in september when I started to I became a gym junkie (eating carbs because, my gosh, I needed the fuel from them :S, you can guess how well that worked for me..) and on a serious note, what university student has time to hit the gym for 2+ hours a night to avoid the freshmen 15.. sure if i wan't to be a christmas graduate. Low and behold, one day during lecture I became obsessed with pintrest (I had to stay awake somehow), came across a paleo recipe site which led me here anndd I think I'm hooked or at least I hope! AKA - here goes nothing!
Day Numero Uno of Primal Eating (starting it off with a bang, or at least that's what I'm working towards ha)
B - two egg omelette with some peppers, and zucchini
S - Smoothie (spinach, berries, half a banana, tablespoon hemp seeds, half a tablespoon flax seed, one drop of peppermint essential oil, looovee the added "refreshing aftertaste of the oil" and a tablespoon of coconut oil
L - spinach salad with half a can of salmon, and various veggies, oil and balsamic vinegar dressing
S - apple, and some nuts
D - baked sweet potato, spinach salad, piece of steak
I have been trying for about a month now to cut out wheat because, well i feel like straight out sh*t when I eat it, scuze my language! Anywho, being a nursing student living at home with family members whom are not doing the whole primal diet may pose some difficulty, but I am pretty motivated to stick to it because I want to sleep through the night and wake up in the morning and look in the morning and be like "BAM good morning you toned, muscular cavewoman you!" not sluggishly press snooze three times then drag myself to get ready, also considering I don't want to live my life hiding in my house in stretchy pants(girl's you all know what I mean with the "stretchy pants", for you boys just think as far from tight as possible.. cute huh NAAAT so much, but hey I'm working on it here people!!) because I ate pasta, bread etc. because lets be truthful here, carbs are good but they are not thaaatt good. And plus I find when I eat wheat products and dairy my face breaks out.. bad. Seriously hoping this clears it up, so any advice anyone can give me is more the welcome!!
