Paleo challenge: day 19

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:

Remember how yesterday I said I wasn’t craving pasta whatsoever? Yeah, well that was before going out to dinner and Ulysses ordering gruyere & bacon mac ‘n cheese. Passing up a few bites of that just wasn’t happening. Saturday nights seem to be my “cheat” (<—I seriously hate that word) night since it’s the one night a week my husband and I get to actually 1. see each other and 2. go out. So in that context, I’m fine with it. I also have no idea what the wings were fried in and there was gorgonzola on my salad. Cue the Whole30 gasps…

      we get an extra point for anything over 8 hours during this challenge so you can bet I’m taking full advantage! I’m a serious bitch though without at least 8 and even that is too low. I have a high need for sleep ;)
