Paleo challenge: day 22

From Jan 1 – 31 I’m doing a strict paleo (slightly modified Whole30) challenge with my CrossFit box. I decided to journal the month in food on here (in addition to normal posting) after getting a huge positive response on my Facebook page. I’m also going to detail the amount of sleep I got, the workout for the day and any other relevant notes. I’ll only detail drinks when it’s something other than water or tea, but note that I typically drink 80-100 ounces of water a day. I’ll link to recipes (either mine or other people’s) when applicable, but I don’t usually cook from recipes for myself so if you leave a comment asking for the recipe for something, there is none unless otherwise noted.

Notes for the day:

Guys, I did pull ups today for the first time in about 7 weeks and I’ve never been so happy to hang from that damn bar. The wod called for 10 rounds of 20 pull ups but I only did 5 and then subbed in 15 kettle bell swings in an attempt to not be stupid and rush back into things with 200 reps, 50 seemed like a better starting point. It was also the first time I’ve swung a kettle bell (with 2 hands at least) in the same amount of time but that doesn’t excite me nearly as much as the pull ups. They might be my favorite thing ever. It just feels bad ass doing them. No pain at all afterwards, just a ravenous appetite hence my dinner plate below and post wod snacks.

      I feel good, the biggest thing for me is I have absolutely no bloating going on since starting this. it’s awesome. I’m going to do a recap post of the whole month at the end with a way more in-depth summary of my thoughts.
