Keep on keeping on

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.

Happy Halloween!

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

Wings! Wings!

After not grocery shopping for quite a while the past two weeks, I found that I barely had anything to eat in my apartment! I ended up ordering wings for today, and I’m getting up early to go to the farmers’ market tomorrow. It feels good to be back on track.

Two eggs (Breakfast).

Lemon-pepper wings (Lunch).

Just a quick before/after

I need to get myself re-motivated after a month-long hiatus (too much vacation time? I think so). School starts again tomorrow and I have to avoid all that naughty junk food. THUS: PICS!

Before!

After!

Okay so I’m not looking as nice as my lower picture atm. I need motivation to get back to exercising and eating healthily. I might start food blogging and calorie counting again. /sigh I wish it were just easy to ignore all the yummy pastas and easy prepackaged foods while on vacation.

I’m starting back up again tomorrow. I’m promising myself that! Words of motivation would be super, super appreciated yall!

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!

Morning Eggs!

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).

Totals Day 6

Until tomorrow,

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
