Primal Journal - Nicole K
Ok, I admit it....I've gradually been slipping over the past month and a half.
80/20 has become 60/40 at best and I can totally feel it. Bleh! I want to feel amazing again. Luckily I realized I needed to push the reset button before major damage was done! WHew! Thank you for posting another 21-day challenge!! I'm rollin solo and would love to use this forum to aide in my challenge. My Enemy= SUGAR. Let the battle begin....
Day 1 Grub:
B: Small handfull raw almonds, coffee with tbls whey powder and tbls cream.
L: Bison meatballs with cooked spinach, egg whites, and salsa verde. Lemon water.
S: Salad: kale, mixed greens, broccoli, beets, Castleventrano olives (MY LOVE), red pepper, avocado, roasted garlic, tuna. Balsamic vinegar dressing. Lemon water. Cinnamon gum.
D: 2 hard boiled eggs. Sweet potato in coconut oil, sea salt, cinnamon, nutmeg. Aqua con limon
Cross fit WOD -- squat press, pushups, situps, wall balls
Zumba with a friend then sauna (I consider this play)
B: Almonds and coffee with tsp cream
L: Bison meatballs with cherry tomatoes, olives, cooked spinach, and butternut squash cubes.
S: Other half of butternut squash with 2 TJ's Italian Chicken Sausages. Coffee.
D: Tiny portion of salmon w/ broccoli and carrots. 1/2 small banana mashed and heated with cinnamon, almonds, walnuts and vanilla extract. 2 ounces 85% dark chocolate. Almond milk.
Def was feelin that sweet tooth last evening but managed to hold off and use alternatives. I also feel like I stopped hydrating in the PM...sometimes I think my body cant tell the difference between thirst and hunger. I'm going to try to drink more before my meals to help my brain chemistry.
AND....YAY!! I managed to get my sister on board to do this with me! Greek Sisters gone Paleo
The battle continues....
B: Almonds, plain whey shake with almond milk and stevia, coffee.
L: 2 eggs sunnyside up over green peppers and egg whites with salsa verde. Cooked broccoli and carrots with 1 TJ chicken sausage and olives.
D: Grilled salmon and mixed veggies with Tamari. Match stick cut sweet potato with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and seal salt.
S: 85% dark chocolate
Lots of lemon water and coffee today. Need to drink less coffee. The bitterness helps kill my post meal sweettooth but I need to cut down my total ounces. I usually use cinnamon or peppermint gum but they are all artificially sweetened. Xylitol gum (SPRY brand) is good for like 30 seconds then it's NASTY. Any other suggestions?
Rode bike to work (7 miles) and home (7 miles).
Quickie Cross fit WOD and 45 min yoga.
Have a great weekend out there forum peeps!
I totally hear you about the grey-shaded 80/20 rule, the same thing happened to me! And sugar is definitely a major vice. In a lovely little cafe today some homemade, gluten-free chocolate chip cookies were singing their siren song to me. I could hear them from within their clear cookie jar prison, I swear. Homemade cookies are my ultimate achilles heel. But! I denied them and watched them weep chocolate tears.
You can do it! Have you tried sweet-ish raw veggies after a meal? Carrots and jicama come to mind. Or a spoonful of sunflower seed butter usually does it for me.
Nice recipe dear i love it . I will make it sure . It would be better for me if you would give me more tips here.
