Day 6

Hello, my paleotastic friends!

I’ve completed another day in the Whole 30 challenge, and that means I am one fifth of the way in! I understand I don’t post complex recipes or foods that are a paleo recreation of normal foods, and that is simply because the lifestyle stresses eating as simply and with as little production as possible. So, if you’re planning on taking the challenge on, or if you are already doing it, I strongly recommend you don’t try to recreate the bad foods (e.g. Caramel Macchiatos, chocolate cake etc.) that got you into this state to begin with!

Breakfast:
I one again stuffed myself to the brim with watermelon and I’m beggining to think this is affecting the results, because their so full of fructose.  Even though these sugars are completely natural, I still think I should only be eating them in moderation so in the next few days I’m planning on cutting down my fruit intake a bit.

Lunch:
Lunch was absolutely delicious: Grilled fillet steak, boiled vegetables and (of course) sweet potatoes.

Dinner:
I had a really busy day and wasn’t in the mood to make a huge dinner, so I simply had 2 boiled eggs with some carrots and cucumber.

I also had time to practice yoga yesterday with my yoga buddy and we ended up taking some cool photos aside from working out! Headstand anyone?

The Start is Always Daunting

Hey lovely people!

So following a mid-examination period stress-related breakdown, I’ve decided I need to treat my body properly, filling it only with real, good food and appreciating it the way I should.  The Whole30 challenge, or the caveman diet, is a way for me to say thank you to my body for all the stress I put it under and also (hopefully) to lose the few pounds I’ve put on through stress eating and get the body I’ve always wanted!

In order to create a sense of accountability and to trap myself into completing the challenge properly, I’m going to be sharing my journey with you, updating you on my daily meals, workouts and Paleo recipes and tracking the changes I see in my body.  It is therefore, regretfully, my duty to post my before photo (note the sad face) and hopefully at the end of the journey, there will be a jaw dropping after photo (with a happy face!)

I’d like for this page to be a beacon of positivity and happiness, hopefully with you commenting your tips and sharing your own pages for me to check in on! Here’s to a wonderful 30 days!
