The first week of paleo was challenging.
First, I did not have any paleo ingredients until halfway through the week. What does this mean, I lived off a flavorless chicken and carrots. Not to mention my constant craving for sugar.
Day 1: I spent most of the day with an excruciating headache and extreme drowsiness. I made paleo muffins to feel a little better (week 2 will be the week I break away from paleo substitutes). I went to CrossFit which helped me take my mind off of things.
Day 2: I felt better. I still ate a bland chicken. However, I found simple things to eat that were healthy and delicious.
Day 3: I went grocery shopping. Let me tell you, paleo ingredients are expensive! However, I paid the unreasonable prices. I made a delicious balsamic chicken recipe. I went to CrossFit feeling more energized.
Day 4: My diet consisted of balsamic chicken and ‘paleo muffins’. Nothing memorable happened today.
Day 5: I made spaghetti squash which was not so great. Note to self: do not expect substitute foods to taste like the original. Squash is a vegetable, not wheat. I made garlic mashed cauliflower. That was not good at all.
Day 6: I cheated a little today. I was at a party for my grandparents and felt obligated to cheat.
Day 7: I felt annoyed that I haven’t seen major results like some people have. I sulk as I eat my salad.
Times cheated: 1
Overall feeling: meh.
