Sunday Morning - One Month Into The Lifestyle Change
Weight: 205# (net loss of 8.4 pounds)
BP: 121/71 (down almost 10mmHG on average. wow.)
Diet: Now that I've gone one month, I think I'd give myself only a C+ or B- on the diet front. Generally speaking, I've been faithful to the Paleo diet at least 2 out of 3 meals a day, but far too frequently I break down at dinner, or I have a snack that isn't on the approved list. I think I'm getting more diligent, but it's been surprisingly difficult to make the full conversion to a paleo/primal diet. i think the biggest reason why this is so is all the processed white starchy food that my wife and son have in the house, and how hard it is to resist indulging in some of the hashbrowns my wife likes to make, or having a toasted tortilla when I see my son making one for a snack.
Exercise: I'd give myself a B- on this front, too, but mostly because of the effect business trips have had on my ability/willingness to exercise before or after a long work day. When I'm home, it's much, much easier to walk, lift, and do push-ups and pull-ups.
It's hard to see in the monthly embarrassing (and hairy!) photos, below, but I'm definitely toning up, plus my clothes are fitting a little better.
