Paleo challenge: day 2

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

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:

Finally went to the doctor for my wrist which hasn’t gotten any better in 2 weeks with ample rest. Verdict? A mild case of De Quervain tendonitis. Which is exactly what I thought it was when I researched it after the injury. Too bad google doesn’t give cortisone shots and wrist braces otherwise I’d have saved myself about $200 and already been healed instead of waiting 3 weeks to see an orthopedic hand surgeon. This will be a long 2 weeks and to say I’m pissed that I’m missing half the month at CrossFit during the paleo challenge is an understatement. Fingers crossed the doc’s promises of being fully healed in 14 days are legit because that’s about all the patience I have left for this dumb injury.

[...] a bit of a rough patch with CrossFit. It probably wasn’t obvious to anyone but myself, but with a wrist injury that sort of healed, sort of didn’t (and still isn’t 100% right), I felt kind of bummed and [...]

I hate injuries. They are the worst! I have a question about your paleo diet. Is a Paleo diet ultimately a reduced carb diet?

Thanks, Reba

you could probably say that to some extent but dairy and legumes are also cut out so it's a bit more specific. If you google paleo, you'll find plenty of info on it explaining in much more detail though.

Question - how did you cook your steak? I'm good with the grill but need to be better at cooking meats inside. Would love to know how you did it, it looks really good!

I have a cast iron grill pan that I heat over med-high heat on the stove top, greased with olive oil. I just seasoned the steak with s&p and grilled it on each side for about 3-4 minutes for med-rare.
