Left side before CrossFit, Right Side 6 months into CrossFit. Taken one year apart.
So today begins a month long challenge of a sugar detox paleo challenge. I am limiting my sugar intake to natural sugars that are already in fruits and limiting that to one serving a day.
I decided to start my day off by sleeping in. I think I needed it! I actually slept in til about 9:00am! That never happens! Nice way to spend a Friday off of work and volunteering. Since I still have yet to set up my internet at my apartment I made a little trek down to a local place called ThymeSquare Cafe. Definitely a local gem… I love it. They support local farms by purchasing their produce from them. As well as local meat farmers and they even smoke/cure their own meat! Pretty much paleo, and I don’t have to cook. I like to treat myself to the leisure of someone cooking for me once in a while.
I begin my day with the Two Egg breakfast.
2 eggs scrambled w/ onion and green pepper
side of bacon
side of fruit
side of potatoes as well, will be running and working out tonight. As well as doing a 5K run tomorrow morning. I think I will need a lil carbs.
So I did well on my sleeping and breakfast. A good way to kick off the day and the paleo challenge. This will be a difficult month, but I will be strong. I just have to remind myself how great I feel when eating clean!
Food just arrived. Fill you in a little later on the rest of the day.
