My Paleo eats (week 4)

paleo foods

Made a little image for the paleo challenge series. Hee hee. See what I ate during week 1 and two and three.

Overall I’m feeling great. I feel like my body hasn’t really changed in the last week and a half. Sort of staying where it’s at. My performance at CrossFit still feels the same. I don’t feel immediately stronger nor did the “magic” happen where I got all powerful. To be honest, I’m pretty weak in some cases at CrossFit. Front Squats and wall balls? My enemy. I do not and will always have a hard time upping my shoulder strength. I do love cleans though. I know this is probably jibber-jabber for those who do not understand the lingo.

My birthday is on Tuesday and I thought I’d have to go all day Paleo on my Birthday. But the coaches sent out an e-mail where we could get measured yesterday (no thanks – I’m not done the 30 days yet!!) or come in on Tuesday, or Wednesday. So – I’m taking a really late lunch and heading over on Tuesday to get my weigh-in and measurements taken. Then it’s PIG OUT TIME. I’m half serious. I have a list of things I’ve been dying to eat since I have not cheated on this challenge.

Believe it or not I’m not going for the sugar as soon as I come off. I want to have a ciabatta bun sandwich filled with chicken, lettuce and veg. For supper, we’re going to grab Smoke Poutinery! I hope I don’t vomit.

I do want to keep up the paleo lifestyle somewhat. Not as strict as I’ll be doing. I may end up posting my food on a daily basis, but not EVERYTHING I eat (because holy that’s time consuming as I take pictures with my Blackberry. E-mail them to myself. Download, then upload to instagram.)

Alright. Onto what I ate for the week…

  1. Nancy! Your food looks awesome! good for you to try such a whole food diet, and for 30 days ( no cheating!). It would be tough to keep it up for an entire lifestyle change… as im sure the pre planning is alot, and the grocery shopping is often ( with so many fresh foods)
    But you look fab, and you’ve proven to your self “you have what it takes”
    You should be proud.
    PS… Did i mention your food looks delicious! i mean REALLY!
    Yeah, poutine after 30 days clean eats… bring a paper bag with you just in case *wink*

  2. Your meals look so good, and I love how you condensed them and put them on one post. I am doing the Whole 30 right now, and I am about like you. I haven’t noticed a huge change (week 2) physically or during my workouts. The thing I am missing the most is Greek yogurt with berries. I don’t crave sugar as much as I did which is really nice though! I can’t wait to read about your measurements, and I am glad I found your blog! :)

  3. I have been so intrigued by the Paleo lifestyle. This seems like a great way to try it out without being totally overwhelmed by the commitment. Congrats in not cheating!
