Paleo challenge: day 23

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:

With 8 days left in this challenge, I booked a trip to the Dominican Republic in mid-February and decided I’m keeping up the strict paleo thing until then (not blogging it…this is getting tedious, but just eating that way). Why the heck not look as good as possible in that bathing suit? Which I totally need to go shopping for now…

8.5 hours

Workout:

25 minute run: .5 mile warm up run | 8x200m sprints w/ 100m recovery | .5 mile cool down

I don't blame you for not recording the daily eats if you continue with paleo until your vacay. Um, by the way....I'm rather envious of your vacation. Just sayin'. I want to escape the cold so badly!

seriously, i can't take this cold. It was -1 today. It's probably even colder by you. Why do people live in the north?? Every year at this time I want to slap myself for moving back here from Florida. SO STUPID.
