Paleo challenge: day 6

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:

I haven’t been eating a ton on Sundays since Ulysses started the police academy. He leaves to go back between 5-6pm so we eat an early dinner and between that and waking up later than weekdays, I’m never hungry enough for 3 full meals.  The trick is to get to bed before hunger for a 4th meal kicks in though. Also, short ribs. I can’t believe I‘d never made them before today. Unbelievable meal.

Sleep:

7 hours (party animals last night buying diesel in 5 gallon increments at the gas station at midnight since I totally effed up the oil delivery and we ran out. Sadly, this isn’t the first time I’ve done this.)

Workout:

rest day
