Paleo-lite: Two days down.

Okay, that may be a stretch, but a dumbed down version of the Paleo diet is really the best way to describe what’s been going down. The past two days haven’t been too hard. The hardest part was not having a cookie after my salad last night at our weekly post-gymnastics Subway dinner.

I’ve definitely noticed that I don’t stay full as long. I’m weaker, crankier, and more tired than normal. That could be due to the new work out routine (had my 3rd On Ramp class this morning!) or some kind of sugar/processed food withdrawl. I hope my energy goes up in a few days. I think my husband does too! Last night I went to bed before 9pm.

I’ve been drinking a TON of water, a Vita Coco coconut water a day, and tea. And a cup of milk in the morning. No coffee thus far, mostly because I just can’t do it without sugar! I have been peeing more than when I was pregnant, it feels!

Here a pictures of a couple meals/snacks:

kiwi, sausage links, hardboiled egg, milk

Two hard-boiled eggs, two sausage links, one kiwi and a glass of milk. I was was too full after this and definitely missing my regular breakfast of toast w/ almond butter and sliced banana.
