I survived my first week of eating strictly paleo!! Wahoo!!! I have to say it went a lot smoother than I thought. Except for Tuesday…it was just an unprepared and unorganized mess. But each day after that got easier and easier. I am still reading and researching about it all. Learning what I should and shouldn’t eat. Why some things are on the no-no list. If I know the reason or the science behind something it makes it easier for me to digest. Get it? Digest? Ha!! Anywho, I did give myself a cheat day…which backfired on me. An instant headache and nausea were my parting gift. Ummmm no thanks!
I have felt amazing!!! Before I started this I was constantly exhausted, sluggish, moody, with daily headaches. This week I have woken up feeling refreshed and the ONLY headache I had was after my cheat meal. I’m not as moody…except when helping with the kiddos’ math work. But that is enough to make anyone go nuts. But overall I have felt better than ever. Now if that don’t tell ya something I don’t know what will!!
So what have I eaten? Well…meat, fruit, and veggies. Lots of them!! Although I need to work on eating more veggies. As I sit here typing this…there is brisket in the crockpot. The crockpot has been my saving grace on days I work. Nothing is more frustrating than working 12 hours and coming home hungry with nothing cooked. Before I would just come home and have a bowl of cereal or peanut butter sandwich. My biggest challenge though is planning what to eat when I am at work. The food in the hospital cafeteria is subpar to say the least. Even the salad bar. But this week I am super prepared!!
In case yall are thinking I am just eating chicken and broccoli. Think again. Take a gander at these bright plates of food. Nothing plain and bland about em!
Just kidding…I didn’t eat quail eggs!! But I could if I wanted to…but I don’t.
Week 2 has started out even better. I have lots of recipes pinned and am hoping to add more good eats to my menu. I will update again next week. Do you all have any good recipes to share? What healthy changes did you make this week?
