Last week my schedule was back to normal. I went in an hour later and worked later 2 days, but for the most part everything was normal.
I was able to stay strictly paleo all work week. Friday night I went out to dinner with my family. I managed to eat paleo out at dinner. That made me really happy because I was worried that going out would mean an automatic fail. I ordered a steak, and substituted veggies for the sides. I also got a salad bar.
Saturday we went out with friends, and at first we were going to an asain place, and I knew there was no way I would be paleo there, because I really don't like much asain food. But, luckily we ended up at an american place, and I had the best rotisserie chicken and carrots.
All weekend I was fighting a bad cold/sore throat deal. Sunday it struck with full force and I really didn't get out of bed. I had zero appetite and when I did finally decide I wanted to eat, the thought of meat and veggies made me sick. I had some chicken soup and Matt made me mac and cheese. It was exactly what I wanted. Even if it wasn't paleo. Did it make me feel gross and blah? No idea, because I already felt horrible, there was no place to go but up!
Today is the first day of the Whole30 challenge with a bunch of girls I met through Jenna @ Paleo Project. It will be nice to have a group of people doing the same thing with me. Matt has also been great. When I complain about craving something he reminds me that this is good for me. He also points out when I am talking about eating something, that it is not paleo. He also hasn't complained once about the lack of grains in our dinners and is trying the new recipes I find without complaint.
As for energy. Up until getting sick, I had a ton! I was staying up later all week because of school work and other things, and getting up at my normal time, but I felt great. This weekend I did a lot of sleeping and laying around, but that is what being sick will do to you.
When I weighed myself this am, I was down 2 more lbs. For a grand total of 7 for the 2 weeks. It might have been lower if I hadn't have indulged on the comfort of the blue box. :-D
This week I hope to stick to it, and since I have a bunch of new friends doing it too, I hope it will be easier.
30 days of Paleo starts today :-D
