Okay so Day 1 complete today. I was actually at my own place the last two days, so I had a bit of time to myself, and a chance to be 100% primal for 2 days. It felt good and it made me feel re-engergized and ready to start my summer challenge!
Today has been successful in some ways, but rough in others - mostly, because I came home and my grandma had made blueberry perogies (we're Polish)!!! OMG! I love these things and I only ever get them like once a year - so this is normally a no guilt cheat. However, I feel really dedicated, SO... I only ate 4, AND after a pretty heavy workout. I consider that a success cuz I could seriously could eat like 10 of those in one sitting. So I seriously held back - not easy for me.
So as I said I do have "a plan". I've actually compiled a word document and listed the primal foods that are normally ready available at my parents' house. This way if I'm hungry I just whip out that list and find something that works. I also have some go-to's listed for sweets. This is my plan to deal with the times everyone around me is eating sweets (which is often) - I have a few go-to treats that are primal or pretty close - this way I can enjoy something without the guilt, or stomach pain and still feel "social" - since it seems food is such a social and family thing at my house. Breakfast/lunch are usually easy for me at my parents house. Bacon and eggs are always readily available- so that's a no fail go to. But it gets trickier for dinner and beyond as that's when the carbs come out and then the sweets and snacks.
Today was okay though.
Breakfast: Scrambled onions, ham and eggs. Tomatoes with sour cream and chives. (I also had 2 bites of market bread, but I decided to not eat the whole piece and gave it away. Go me!)
I was still hungry, so I had an apple with some cashew butter and cinnamon.
Had a killer workout with my sister. Hope I'm sore tomorrow Squats and pushups and planks, oh my!
Snack: Jasmine tea with some honey.
Dinner: Burgers. Just had the patty over a salad with romaine, tomatoes, avocados, onions and pickles with some ketchup and mustard.
Was still hungry after dinner (really could have eaten another patty... but oh well), so I made one of my quick easy "treats" for dessert to fill me up. Acorn squash, apples, butter and cinnamon heated in the microwave- it's like healthy apple pie! I used lots of butter and some heavy whipping cream with vanilla to top it off. Then I was happy. I also took my dog for a nice hour walk.
Finishing the evening with some camomile tea. Hope tomorrow goes well.
