#30DayPaleoChallenge - Day 1
Now I feel like I'm prepared to hit the grocery store for me! What is my plan? I'm only going to buy milk, bread and orange juice for the kids for the next thirty days. Everything else that I buy will be on the Paleo list of things we can all eat. My kids are freaking out! I think there is enough stuff in the house for them to deal with for thirty days. They need to change up their menu just as much as I do. However, I think that by not bringing more stuff in the house and calling it "for the kids" will be less tempting for me and there will be more success with the challenge.
Here are the guidelines:
Breakfast - Scrambled eggs & a banana.
(Went to Chiropractor for traction, grabbed peppermint candy from bowl while I was waiting, should have just blew off the curiosity of bad breath!) 3 point penalty! &*^%
Lunch - Came home from work out husband ate my "Paleo" lunch! Grabbed banana and headed to Whole Foods for nuts. Total waste of my time! Too expensive, too far to drive, ate some pecans on the way home but still hungry! Headed to HEB to get more food.
Dinner - pork chops, carrots, cantaloup (Noticed that the seasoning I was going to use had sugar in it!) Then cleaning out the spices occurred.
Gee - I've been working out for two years and I'm still not dropping weight! Could it be that 95% of the stuff in your house contains sugar or is processed? Just curious. Well for the next 29 days I'm going in and if I earn points along the way so be it, but changes in food consumption really need to occur. I need to arm myself with a heck of a lot more recipes.
Major problem: Most of the recipes have some sort of nut (almond, coconut, etc..) ingredient in them and my son has a peanut/tree nut allergy. I'm just going to have to do more research! The days is almost over and I'm so glad. My head really hurts. I feel full but not satisfied if that makes any sense at all. Stay tuned....
We will be weighing in and taking measurements so we have some sort of idea how this is going.
