Paleo Diet, Day 13

oh nuts

oh nuts

First an update on what I’ve been up to: looking for a house, buying a house, moving into that house, planning a wedding, playing in a band.  These things (along with a day job) can make it quite difficult to find time to blog.

I’ve also been continuing to do CrossFit– I even convinced my beautiful fiancee to get into it.  Starting Tuesday July 14th, however, I decided to kick things up a notch.

Every once in a while, my gym throws down challenges, or lockdown challenges.  The first of these was simply to follow the CrossFit HQ workout scheulde to the T for around a month.  That means performing  the Workout of the Day posted on the HQ website in the perscribed intervals: 3 days on, one day off.  It’s great motivation to help you focus on working out for a little while.

Then the challenges moved on to include diet, and this challenge is no exception.  CrossFit’s succinct dietary recommendation is: “eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar.”  That description is also often referred to as the Paleo Diet.  Since the 14th, that’s the diet I’ve been trying to follow.

I’ve actually got lots of commentary on how the first two weeks have gone (including lots of pictures), but for now, I’ll just leave it at that.  Let this post whet your appetite, and I’ll deliver on the pics and the stories soon…
