Paleo check-in

Day 15 on the Paleo diet

Starting weight: 203.5
Today's weight: 194.4
Pounds lost: 9.1
Number of workouts this week: 1 derby practice and a 10k yesterday


Lost a little less this week, but that usually happens on a diet - lose a lot at first, and then your body evens out. Still, losing is better than gaining :) 


Definitely feeling great, and I think my body looks different too. I'm down a notch in my belt (and could even cinch it two notches tighter if I wanted to, but I don't like feeling too constricted). 


Had my first and only non-self-cooked meal the other night - went to CPK with my parents. Didn't order pizza, of course - I ordered the field greens salad: field greens, grilled shrimp (no butter), bosc pairs, hold the candied walnuts, dijon balsamic vinaigrette (the only questionable item, since I didn't know what was in it - in hindsight, I should've gotten it on the side or not at all). My mouth was itchy and swelling within half an hour after! Who knows what caused it? I still blame the dressing.


This weekend I made the most FABULOUS carnitas. It was seriously awesome. We finished it before the end of the weekend.


I have to say, I THOUGHT I was a "food lover" before, when I was eating anything and everything, but now I feel like I have a much deeper appreciation for food and cooking, now that my tastebuds aren't drowned in sugar and salt all the time and I'm discovering new flavors and recipes!

  1. Branching out and trying new things is always fabulous (with a few misses along the way usually). I am glad that it is working for you so far. It sounds like you are doing a great job of sticking with it! You should post some recipes :)
