Paleo challenge: day 9

From Jan 1 – 31 I’m doing a strict paleo (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:

I think I literally sat for 99.8% of my day whether it was in my car or the most uncomfortable conference room chairs in the universe. My legs are itching to run and yet my body is exhausted from the long day + little sleep. Even though I ate well, I feel like the definition of unhealthy today. Very happy I put in the 15 minutes last night to prep my own breakfast because if I had relied on the conference center’s choices I would’ve ended up with fruit and a carb fest of sugary pastries.

    Hi, I absolutely adore your blog and would love to ask you questions about food and stuff. Do you or have you ever counted calories /? I am very limited in exercise/activity because normally I am only a walker, but since I live in a place where snowstorms occur every 2 days (literally, home-bound storms atrocious) I have days of just…sitting. You’d think I could exercise, BUT I can’t. Live in a box of an apartment with a very older lady who would freak out any kinda noise. So….in meantime, I eat because I have an “emotional” attachment to food. Seriously. Added to this is that I have very bad digestive issues…I believe I need to try out an elimination diet, but very unsure. I am curretnly “kind” of eating paleo…not really, but kindof. And STILL feel like crap. I heard of this book “The Plan” that makes sense and about a 2 day detox type of regime, etc. My goals? Not to lose weight, but to be healthy and not gain “fat” weight. So how do I do this in this situation….what matters most? : calories in and out (how much does one need to SIT all day cause I’m there , but I’m eating things out of control admittedly) , or the foods eaten, or the exercise. I’m so worried and tired of this kind of cycle. Thanks for any emails to me. SUPER appreciated. YUMMY food.
