The past week has been hellish. Between getting mugged, taking the GRE, and getting mugged, I haven’t been very good to my own body in terms of eating correctly (I’m talking Taco Bell, Steak & Shake milkshake, and popcorn all last night). I’m going to turn it around next week, and try not to be angry with myself for my lapse. It really makes me feel awful—stomach cramps, diarrhea, and sluggishness—I don’t know why I do it to myself. Either way, I have a new determination to keep on fighting the good fight.

But I promise I’ve been good! Have some paleo food porn to keep you going.
Pats all around for everyone who avoided post-Halloween candy giveaways! Crossfit starts next week. Wooooooo! Continue reading
We ended up giving out berries and apples to the neighborhood chicklets. I kind of felt like my neighborhood orthodontist who would pass out toothbrushes in vain when I was a kid, but at least you can eat apples! These masked kiddies’ parents should be thanking us.
Overall, today was a bit high carb. I didn’t have time to make a good breakfast, which meant I got a fruit smoothie at work. Fruit smoothies are not terrible, but they still have 68 carbs (or at least the one I got). I think that so long as it’s not a regular thing, indulging in the occasional smoothie isn’t detrimental to paleo. Continue reading
