Day 3 is feeling better…still not easy
Headache is better than yesterday… My energy is already better throughout the day but wake up some tired in the morning!!! Like I can’t get enough sleep… (I usually get up without the alarm…)
Did do a Zumba class last night and thought I was going to pass out near the end… Very light headed…
My energy level was extremely high since I started the challenge, until today and last night..I had a huge headache and muscle soreness. Looking in my book maybe those are partly due to dehydration .. Only drank a bottle of water or two a day so far this week.. My weakness that I have to work on 😉
People were talking about the brownies again today … so here’s the recipe. They are so easy that even I can make them. Browse around the site too…. Lots of paleo recipes for you!
Primal Almond Butter Brownies
Here’s another great site from a Crossfitting mom …..
Jeff, did you use squash or pumpkin when you made the brownies?
I used canned pumpkin. I think Heather said she used squash.
I think it safe to say that this challenge is what I will keep on doing. I love it!
Not feeling crapy like after eating junk food and that for me is super. Also I have a much better felling of well being, faster recuperation time from whatever, and am not hungry like I use to be after eating lots.
Keep on Paleoing!
Day 4… I am missing my Coke Zero! Other than that no cravings so far..
Lots of Water or Sleep, what is more important? Is sleeping optional?
What goes in, must come out and has no perfect timing hehehe
You want to consume more water in the morning so you’re not waking up all night going to the bathroom. Stop drinking water 3 hours before bed.
I will do my best, get very dry after the 6:30 WOD.
Allison :Jeff, did you use squash or pumpkin when you made the brownies?
Allison, I make these all the time and throw in a 1/2 cup of ground walnuts and pecans…really good. I have only ever used canned pumpkin mostly because I am too lazy to discect a squash 🙂
i’m feeling good so far, got a few new PRs and matching old PRs that i hadn’t hit in a while, and energy and sleep are good.
but i’m REALLY hungry! is it from a lack of ‘fuller carbs’? i didn’t eat alot of carbs (i don’t think anyway, maybe 1, 2 servings a day) prior to the challenge – would that be the culprit?
Bring your journal in and let’s take a look.
will bring it in tomorrow morning.
eat more meat and nuts, be sure to have banana’s as you might be needing the potassium….
Those “brownies” look decent dont know if I like pumpkin have never had it
Gabrielle can you post the recipe for those bars Kevin has talked about
i made the brownies last night.. yummy!!!
Nighttime is usually when I’m having a headache. I just blocked all the light from the bedroom hopefully this will affect my sleep quality. Thanks to everyone for the great recepies, keep them coming 😉
Made it through my first big challenge day… PD where the meal was provided (I brought my own…) and a dinner party tonight… warned the host before hand and she was very accomodating 🙂
Today is the first day that I’m really craving BAD foods. Yesterday I felt tired, but my energy level is up today. I just wish I could have some chips, chocolate and maybe some fast food, but instead I will eat chicken, carrots, almonds and lots of fruit. This weekend will be my biggest challenge, although I do have my cheat meal tomorrow… watch out Pizza Delight:)
I would kill for a drink of wine! This weekend is going to be a huge challenge! I am seeing Bret Michaels tonight (the biggest challenge will be to not jump on stage!) in Halifax, then going to a wedding tomorrow in Fredericton, then thanksgiving in Miramichi. Long road trip so I packed the car with nuts, fruit, and paleo muffins to help. The food won’t be the problem for me this weekend, it’ll be the wine!!!!!!
Still missing my coke zero.. what are the coffee drinkers doing? having one and marking it or none at all?? I don’t drink coffee or tea so I guess my coke zero a day is like everyone missing coffee…
I’m with you Angela. Has anybody done any research that conclusively points to evidence that Grok didn’t have any Moose Light or a cask of merlot tucked away at the back of the cave? Really, it’s Friday night for crying out freakin’ loud. So uncivilized!
As for the coffee cravings, I am a coffee drinker, but haven’t really missed it much. I’ve been content with hot lemon & hot mint water…who knew?
I’m with Heidi on the coffee drinking. I’ve been going with hot water and lemon in the mornings. Though I’m missing the caffeine I have to say that I’m not missing the mood swings. Though I always like to dismiss the fact that I have them, the constancy of no caffeine or blood sugar peaks and troughs has left me quite relaxed. First three days this week I was a walking zombie though. Brain dead is how I sum up my Monday without coffee.
As for the alcohol, I’ve been a tea toater (sp?) since for the last five years since the kids came along and there’s been a child permanently attached to Shelley’s breast. No fun drinking alone.
Anybody know if Grok had the means to make that corn he picked and dried into Popcorn?
Happy Cheat day! um I mean Turkey day… this will be my cheat meal.. going to try to eat okay so I dont feel so bad about the cheesecake… Just to note for anyone trying to lose lbs. with paleo.. it works.. down 6lbs… 🙂
Great job keitha a whole 6 pounds ..impressive!!
Thanks! lots more to go but its a start! 🙂
so I blew it this weekend with the wine…one mildly lame wedding and 2 turkey dinners and a Bret Michaels’ concert…..may have consumed a few bottles or so 🙂 As far as food, I did fairly well, a piece of wedding cake and some pie with the turkey dinners…….back on track tomorrow. I miss CF the most – haven’t been able to go since Wed….can’t wait to get back at it tomorrow.
Great job on the weight loss Keitha 🙂
