Happy Monday everyone!
This weekend was great. Got an amazing round of golf in on Saturday, which totally made the rest of my weekend seem extraordinarily better.
Food wise, I got myself back on track pretty well. I ate a LOT but it was all primal so I'm thinking I did pretty well. Well, I am not counting the beer that I drank on the golf course, but I walked that off and had no bad side affects from the wheat/gluten.
Today I am fasting with my bulletproof coffee and trying to get back into a good pattern of behavior. I got up late this morning and rushed out to my exercise class. I arrived just in time to see my class running outside. I had a fleeting thought that I could still escape if I really wanted to. But I didn't listen to myself and ran to catch up. It was INSANE! We had to run a half mile to the bottom of a hill and then do hill sprints. It was seriously killer. But I felt soooo good after all the pain! Also, today is the first day that I have been able to do 30 second planks in a row. She broke it up for us because we were all about dead from the workout. I'm not positive that I could have held it a whole minute, but I'm getting close. This in itself was enough proof that I made the right choice in going. I love all of these life changes!!
Tonight I will be eating leftover steak with sautéed spinach and onions. I will probably throw some blue cheese on top to add some calories. After that workout I think I need to go a little bit heavier than normal. Possibly a half of a sweet potato with butter.
Something that I have noticed over the past couple of weeks is that my production at work has significantly improved. I am a high producer and I handle a LOT of details with what I do. I never really thought I needed improvement. But now I feel like I have laser focus and things are just feeling very clear now. I am happy to say that I can only attribute it to this diet and the exercise. I feel so GOOD!!
PS My husband mentioned on Saturday that he feels really good since starting to cut out the wheat. Now, he said this as he had about 4 lbs. of spaghetti on his plate, but I have to admit he is trying. Taking the approach of not bugging him and just leading by example seems to really be working. After all, he can't argue with the way I am looking. Yay!
