Children think they know.. but they have noooo idea!

2 week weigh in

Happy Friday! TGIF! Yay for the weekend!

I am 2 weeks into Paleo. Once again I was on that scale this morning. The numbers went down again!

I happened to have a doctor’s appointment this morning, when Doc asked about my diet “Are you getting enough fruits and veggies?” I chuckled. That is all I’m eating! Not really, I’m eating eggs and meat too.. She asked about my calcium intake… “uhhhhhmmmm It could be better..?”

I did get turned on to the brand SO Delicious, which is dairy free. Coconut milk, almond milk, yogurt, ice cream, and coffee creamer! I’ve only tried the coconut milk, coconut milk yogurt, and the coconut milk creamers. I’ve become a fan! Doc said that the coconut milk should have enough calcium in it, especially the yogurt. She recommended that I take multivitamins, along with additional vitamin D. I said “Yep, I do every day!” I’m a really good patient 🙂

So now that I have been granted a clean bill of health and the scale doesn’t moan when I step on it, I am going to enjoy my Starbucks triple shot SOY latte. Oh the happiness of dieting rewards 🙂

Have a GREAT weekend! And don’t forget to take your vitamins!

I think I can I think I can

After some discussion with co-workers and contemplating giving up coffee, I have come to the conclusion of trying out the Paleo diet! I will be giving up bread, dairy, refined sugar, cereal grains, potatoes, and processed food!
TALK ABOUT A CHALLENGE!

My goal is to go ONE MONTH. I will be surviving on grass-produced meats, fish, seafood, fruit, veggies, eggs, nuts and seeds. It looks scary, but I enjoy my fruits and veggies. I am going to miss my yogurt, peanut butter, cream cheese and bagels 😦

I usually bring my lunch with me to work, so today I packed a banana, apple, tomato, pear, strawberries, raspberries, and 2 hard-boiled eggs. Dinner is going to be the challenge. But I am up for it!

If I make it a month, I will shoot for 2 🙂

Looking forwards to a better me and better wallet! 🙂

(I added a rule that I am allowed to drink coffee. I just have to limit it and make up for it by drinking extra water)
