Fruit Salad (Day 6)

Had a lovely meal with Aaron’s parents last night. They brought over fruit dessert! I’m finding that I’m going to have to be more careful with how much fruit I eat; I’m eating too many carbs right now.

Morning Bacon!

Salad with nova, raspberries, mangos, and homemade dressing (Lunch).

Banana (Lunch).

Spicy tilapia with olives and tomatoes & salad with balsamic vinegar (Dinner).

Fruit salad (Dessert).

Still Getting Back Into It (Day 5)

I’m finding it difficult to not cheat here and there and everywhere with paleo. I’m used to falling back on my cheat day, and that would keep me strong during the week. What am I endlessly allured to?

Those fruity, delicious summer drinks.

Yes, in the past few days, I’ve had shots, beers, and piña coladas. Fellow dieters, alcohol is possibly the best way to undermine your diet and travel down a dangerously delectable path to obesity and beyond. I have to stave myself off.

To be clear, no, I’m not drinking alone. I’m a 20-something in the summertime. There is temptation everywhere.

I need to get out of the mindset that alcohol is something I can have whenever I want. I mean I can, but my body can’t handle it. Oh Miss Colada. I will miss you.

I have been without consistent internet for the past few days, but I’ve been pretty good with keeping paleo. I would say I’m 90% there. Okay. Eighty if you count the alcohol. Maybe 75%. But today was especially good. Pictures!  Continue reading

So Much Better than 4HB (Day 2)

This diet is so easy compared to 4 Hour Body. Tomorrow I’m spoiling myself and running off to Whole Foods for some simple organic gluten and dairy free paleo snacks! Delicious! Suggestions? Tomorrow I intend to go out with some friends for a birthday, so I will definitely cheat a little. We will see how it goes :).  Continue reading

Here We Go Again (Day 1)

I am so in love with how many options are available on this diet!! I am currently sitting here next to my sloth of a boyfriend, who is eating Walmart-sized marshmallows. Frankly, I’m happy that I stuck with my baked apples with cinnamon. Yum!

Day 1 wasn’t so terrible ya’ll. I am much happier in this lifestyle.  Continue reading

It’s Been 2 Months

Hey 4HB folks!

It’s been 2 months since I threw down my last bean and screamed, “I’ve had enough!” I left the 4HB project, swearing to never look at another taco salad or stir fry ever again, and hoping for a new beginning. I had hit 124.4 lbs, and hoped to keep it there.

Now, two months (or 57 days later), I have gained 5lbs. Not horrible, not unmanageable, but after realizing it takes three weeks to lose just 5lbs, it’s still somewhat depressing. I don’t want to continue gaining weight, but 4HB is not sustainable for me. I need something new. Before I go into the paleo diet, I first want to highlight what I have kept from 4HB that likely has slowed the weight gain.

  1. High protein breakfasts within the first hour of waking. Okay, they are perhaps not as high as they should be. I eat two whole eggs and an egg white every morning, which is about 18g protein, as opposed to the prescribed 20g-30g. Clearly, I need more bacon.  Continue reading
