Day 2

Day 2 went great!  I am on the last day of my 4 days off work so that definately helps.  I had time to prepare my meals and take my time eating them too.  I go back tomorrow so we will see how that goes.  I have made some things ahead of time though.  I made some egg cups that I froze.  I got the recipe on Pinterest but basically you just make scrambled eggs with various sauted veggies (I put zucchini, mushrooms, peppers, onions and fresh spinach in mine) and put it in greased muffin tins.  Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes at 350 F and that's it!  Great to have some quick breakfasts for those days I'm in a hurry.  Today's breakfast was eggs with mushrooms, zucchini and spinach and a Cara Cara orange (my favorite!).  I ended up having my coffee black.  Didn't love it, but it was ok.

After breakfast I ran on the treadmill.  I have not done much running in the New Year.  I was sick with a rotten virus on New Years Eve that lasted a few weeks.  Since I'm planning on running a 10 K in June I better get moving!  

Lunch was a salad with Kale, brussel spouts, cabbage, broccoli, almonds, chicken and strawberries with a olive oil / balsamic vinegar dressing.  It was delicious!

I did some housework in the afternoon and then picked up a few things at the grocery store as I planned to make Paleo Spicy Pineapple Chili for supper.  The only time today that I did feel hungry was when I was preparing the chili.  I had some raw veggies with a few almonds to take the edge off.  The recipe for the chili is on thehealthydynamicduo.com site.  You have to scroll down a bit to find it.  Lots of great recipes there!  It turned out great.  My son Brett loved it too.  And you know what?  I really didn't miss the beans.

I have lots left over so I'm going to freeze some in small portions so I will have meals for when I'm in a hurry or if the family wants something not on my plan.  Good thinking Kim!  Planning ahead is going to really help me in the next 28 days.  Just a disclaimer here, this diet plan sounds crazy I know but I'm not trying to push it on anybody I'm just trying it for me.  I have an extremely bad addiction to sugar and carbs that I need to work on and this plan seemed to be a good one to try.  Do what works for you.

I've just started Paleo -- or really semi-paleo -- and I'm really liking it. Bought coconut flour tonight and lots of fruits and veggies. Made paleo pancakes and had a cara-cara orange for dessert. I love no tracking and not being hungry.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm really not that hungry either. Just right before supper. I am addicted to the scale so not weighing for a month is going to kill me! But maybe it's for the best.
