I’m officially on the Paleo bandwagon. A few weeks ago I blogged about wanting to try it …so wahlah, I’m doin’ it. And my roommate is joining me! Today is day one. But we’re starting out slow and just doing it Monday through Friday.
My biggest fear? Drinking black coffee. I’m the queen of cream and sugar. Of course there are alternatives to cream, but I was too lazy to go to the grocery store yesterday and that’s my own fault. And of course I can’t go without my coffee. So I manned up and drank it black this morning…not too shabby!
Lunch: I made egg cupcakes over the weekend and I had these for leftovers.
Dinner: Taco veggie lettuce cups. FYI these do NOT say in the cups. So I turned it into taco salad.
And boom. Just like that day one is in the books.
But this will not be easy. I’m realizing I have to plan my meals ahead of time. And I’ll have to make more frequent trips to the grocery store. And I have to give up my love for condiments. Ketchup is seriously my jam. Oh…and did you know a small package of almond flour is TEN DOLLARS? $10! What?! That’s just cray. I’m going to have to order this in bulk from Amazon.
My next struggle: It’s my brother’s birthday tomorrow and we’re going to a pizzeria for dinner and dessert. What am I supposed to eat at a pizzeria? And how do I say no to cake? Oh man.
Changing directions. Tomorrow is day one of my next half marathon training. I convinced a few of my best friends from college to do a half in Iowa City (our college town) on May 5th. They are all half marathon virgins (except Kristin ran the Chicago Marathon in ’09) so this is going to be F-U-N!
And lastly …In honor of Alabama Shakes getting rigged of the Best New Artist Grammy last night, enjoy:
