Notes:

All in all it wasn't a bad day after having a pretty bad two two day. Unfortunately I have been so busy lately journaling kind of took a back seat. Had an impromptu necessary road trip over the weekend. Went in to it trying to eat clean and surprised myself on Saturday of sticking to things pretty well. Being stuck in a snowstorm in middle of nowhere on Sunday though made things pretty unmanageable. Glad to be back on things though and will be journaling from now on!

Again, pretty clean, but the (natural) sugars are where I keep slipping up. Also, sorry that I have been so terrible at journaling.

Apple

Lunch:
Chicken thigh
Roasted kale, beets, garlic

Snack:
Small piece of turkey meatloaf (Turkey, carrots, celery, spices)

Notes:

Prepping on Sunday helped out a bunch. When I prep stuff ahead of time I don't have to rely on as many stop gaps. On an earlier schedule this week with my wife starting a new job, so hope the prep keeps up and I can get enough sleep adjusting to a new bed time.

05/02/2014: Gourmet Club

by Megan!!!!! || [comment_count post_id=776]
Food:

6:40am Banana
7:00am Crossfit
8:30am Sweet potato/protein/banana/chia smoothie + roasted kale, beets, chard and garlic
10:30am Apple with almond butter
12:00pm Chicken curry
7:00pm Guacamole with plantain chips, lamb and veggie kabobs, asparagus
8:30pm 1/2 slice of flourless, dairy-free chocolate cake

Sleep:7 hours
Notes:

So I know the chocolate cake should go. The good thing was there was no dairy, flour or added sugar. It was pretty much 100% cacao, eggs and coconut milk. So that was my little treat, although it left me wanting more chocolate so I learned my lesson.

We had gourmet group with 2 other couples on Friday so I was a bit nervous about it at first but luckily there wasn't even a non-paleo thing on the menu! The couple preparing the main dishes are also Crossfitters from another gym so it was nice to have support of people not even participating in the challenge, still eating well even during fun, weekend events.
