Paleo challenge: day 29

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:

Throughout this month I’ve been trying to limit fruit to the morning. I’m a fruit addict so cutting it out would never be an option for me but I was trying to eat it early in the day rather than later. I failed at that today when pineapples were $1 at the store and sounded like a good way to jazz up the carnitas I’ve been eating non-stop since Friday. I also ordered bathing suits online today for my upcoming trip to the Dominican Republic and had to measure myself for sizing. I didn’t take before measurements at the beginning of this month but I know my waist, hips (and chest) have never been so small before. That was just the pick me up I needed to finish these last 3 days because I’m getting restless over here for really simple things like almond milk, a piece of cheese and a slice of ezekiel bread with my eggs.
