Tomorrow officially begins the challenge. You know what the worst part is? I have to get my fat pinched. Measured. Yeah...not good. I will be going to the gym in the a.m. to get the fatness pinched and then do our first challenge which is something called Crossfit Total. It is the total (weight I'm guessing) of your one-rep max of each of the following: back squat, shoulder press, and deadlift. Considering I haven't worked out since the baby was born over 7 months ago, this should be interesting. It's great to have a starting point (and photos...don't forget the horrific "before" photos that must be taken) but honestly this won't really let me know how the Paleo diet affects my workouts since I'm starting it all at once! Haha! So I only have room to improve, right?
I went grocery shopping today. I got all of the food for our first week. Except almond milk. Not at Publix. Yes...I do realize they actually do sell almond milk there, however, read the ingredients. So much crap in those that there is no way it is Paleo. So I'll try the natural food store tomorrow while we're downtown. We are still allowing our son to eat cheese but we're not buying anymore milk for the 30 days. We'll slowly wean him off dairy since he ate so much of it.
Here's what he thought of the new and improved fridge contents:
Haha, just kidding. He wanted to take a silly photo and this is what I got. Just happened to be as I was putting the groceries away! :) Seriously, after our last challenge, he started eating more of the vegetables he'd gotten away from. Now he sword fights me with asparagus spears before we eat them. That was one food he used to love and then after we let too many crackers, bread, etc. come into play, he has started losing his taste for veggies. Slowly but surely we are bringing it back!
Well...off to have my last cup of coffee full of yummy cream and milk. For 30 days at least!
