The Diet Ledge
Well I have never really dieted and that lack of experience hit me square in the eye this week as I transitioned from the Standard American Diet of Sugar and Grains to Paleo. I was light headed and had headaches for the entire week. Adding to the pain, I just didn’t prep well enough for the type of withdrawals or cravings with proper snacks and options. Saturday night my feet were on the ledge and I was about to binge at 9pm at night and after 2 m&ms… I thought that isn’t very smart… she how you feel in the morning.
This video is an update on how great Sunday went and what I found for some great resources to energize me and even get me cooking!! Also I did NOTHING exercise wise last week outside of stretching and massage so I feel like my body had time to heal and come out of shock from Tuesday’s baseline at Crossfit. I got timed on the following workout:
50 pull ups assisted
100 push ups assisted
I made it about 1/2 way through in 15 minutes so now my “points” on 6/11 come from how much better I do over this baseline. I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO DIE! So I am training for the event just like a run so I can make it to the end and not be the last person to finish (I hope).
My savior and energizer this week was picking up this book, Everyday Paleo and reading the blog. Very practical recipes and now my fridge looks like this!
I am excited to see how the week of training and eating goes now that my body should be out of shock! How long has it taken you to get rid of a craving??
