Day 1 Paleo Challenge

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.

How cliche, I will call this my “First Post” =)

Tuesday October 29th, 2013

This is going to be basically a food and wellness journal. I am going to be documenting all of the food/fluids I intake daily, sleeping habits, workouts and anything that may have a positive or negative effect on my health. 

Here are some of the goals I have set for myself to live a healthy lifestyle:

-64 oz. of H2O daily

-Strict Paleo (85-95%) paleo (no dairy, gluten, limited amounts of sugars)

-Exercise 3-5 times a week

-mobilize daily

-8 hrs sleep

-reduce or quit smoking

So…. as for my first entry…. I may have just put blinders on for the day. 

Sleep: 6.5 Hours

Water: 12oz X 2 Thus far

Breakfast: Tall Mocha from Starbucks and Bacon Gouda sandwhich

Lunch: Bowl of Chili w/ Cheese and Onion

Snack: Fun Size candy bar =( Temptation at work looming in front of me.

Dinner, have not got there yet.

Smoke: 2 @ 7:00am, 1 @ noon, 1 @ 6:00pm

Mobility w/ mobility ball for 30 min.

Since I recently moved I have yet to get my internet set up. That means my posts may be sporadic for a little while.  

Feel free to comment, share recipes ect. maybe even “yell” at me for stupid choices.  

This will be a learning journey for me!
