I ended up washing, chopping and prepping my meals for a few hours yesterday. I was on my feet in the kitchen for what seemed like forever. But I ended up making some meals ahead of time so in the morning I can pop these egg omelet things in the microwave so I have no excuse to skip breakfast.
Gotta be honest. I’m not all gung-ho about paleo because it IS restricting whether or not you like it. We’re living in 2013 here people, and of course food is going to be drastically different than the caveman days. The caveman also had different dental structure and ate friggen’ raw meat and organs. I ain’t about to be doing that shiznit. I get grossed out when cooked chicken has fat on the edges. It gets cut-off by my friendly fork ‘n knife, thankyouverymuch.
Paleo is such a touchy subject that I am almost hesitant on blogging about my experience. So many people can be so pushy and sensitive about it all. Me? Before I even started this process, IÂ don’t think this is a way for ME to live all the time. I love milk and I don’t even eat that much bread but when I have it, it’s soo delicious. Ace bakery anyone? I also have some medical issues (“dangerously” low iron, annoying eczema, and a bit of asthma which requires an inhaler when I exercise) but who knows maybe paleo is a miracle and will clear all my ailments and I’ll want to stay on it forever. Regardless of it all, I’m going to do it and you can skip over the blog if you don’t want to read about it.
Â My meal plan isn’t interesting yet. I’m going to go through the first week and see how I like it. It’s hard coming up with snack ideas besides TUNA. Jeeze. Gimmie some of those chocolate covered almonds!
I’ve told every one that I’m doing this 30 day challenge. Even my co-workers are ready for me. In fact, their exact words were: If Nancy has a stick up her ass next week, we’ll know why. Another co-worker said after that comment:Â Maybe we should send an e-mail out to everyone telling them that Nancy is going off the sugar!!! I kid you not. Oh lunch time humor. It is true though. I hope I don’t “detox” too hard and become a stick in the mud, or my ass….
Follow me along, won’t you? :)
