Thanks CG thats somewhat reassuring - did you get to your target weight doing Paleo? Or did you switch to Paleo to maintain?
Ive just planned out my meals for the next week - Im doing the Whole30. I figure im "pretty much" doing it anyway and theres no time like the present, plus Feb is a quiet month.
Its going to be hard without my honey and the odd wrap/sprinkling of cheese but Ive gone from eating junk - to healthy - to whole 30 so its not going to be a HUGE wrench.
Im going shopping tonight for a weeks worth of food - I think im going to keep it really simple and make a huge batch of chicken soup (using real stock, veg and chicken) - for lunches. Hopefully this is allowed?
Im also going to a boot camp session tommorrow - now this IS daunting as I friggin hate excersize but its exactley what I need to shift some kilos.
Well, today is the first day of whole30 and im feeling ok.
Last night I made THREE soups (butternut squash, chicken and tomato) - then portioned & froze them fo lunches for the next 2 weeks. Im pretty sure disorganisation will be my downfall - so im not leaving anything to chance.
Today Im having:
- Ground Beef & 1/2 a sweet potato
-Tomato soup - large portion but made with all natural ingredients
- 2/3 chicken drumsticks (seasoned) with a mountain of steamed veg
I also have a medium handful of pecans and walnuts - I wouldnt usually eat these types of nuts but Im doing bootcamp tonight so need the energy lol.
So did bootcamp last night - wow - will be going back on thursday but I hate excersize sooo much. Its just SO hard! As soon as ive started i want to stop, its mental. There are women 3 times my size at the group - kicking absolute BUTT - I should be ashamed of my fitness levels. Hopefully I will see a decent loss on the scales now though, as this will be the first time ive incorporated excersize into my life.
Today its more ground beef & 1/2 sweet potato
Lunch is tomato soup again, and tea is same as last night. I might try and just do some yoga later - nothing cardio or strenuous as I have bootcamp tommorrow.
Have a great day all
You'll get used to it hun!!! Keep at it!!! X
Exercise is hard at the start but you'll soon get the buzz and be addicted doesn't take long
Think its 21 times...... Do something 21 times and it becomes a habit!!!
hehe thanks ladies! - tonights my second time at bootcamp!
Last night I ate a gorgeous meal, coconut oil & tumeric chicken drumsticks, with mushrooms & green beans.
I deffo feel slimmer - I also watched the biggest loser which spurs me on! Im going to weigh myself probably on sunday morning, and then leave it for 2 weeks before my next one.
I love the biggest loser... Anything like that!!!! Lol supersize v super skinny is my fave!!!! X
Well that is string being able to go 2 weeks before you weigh.
I love all those programs and I love the operation one can't think what it's called but they do gastric bands and stuff and the people lose such massive amounts of weight. I once thought about having a gastric band when I was at my heaviest of 20 stone.
Love all those programs got lots on record :-)
Such motivation dont you think? x
Yes they are it makes you feel your not alone in this struggle with our weight.
I dont think i will ever not have to keep an eye on it!!!
I like food too much.... Or rather i like naughty food too much lol....
I LOVE LOVE supersize vs superskinny...and biggest loser...and anything else about weight loss hehe.
I will admit 2 weeks without weighing is very hard - however because i only have a stone to lose and im new to excersizing, I dont lose much on the scales and it really de-motivates me when I see a low number. At least if I leave it 2 weeks I can see a bigger change which spurs me on!
I hear what your saying about the gastric bands, I watched a Spersize vs sperskiny last night and one of the american guys they visited had actually had the surgery, lost 12 stone, then put it all back on and more. I think your head has to be in the right place before you take that kind of action.
Anyway today is friday and its a long weekend here in Aus as australia day is on saturday so monday is a public holiday - dont ask me - no idea why - but im not complaining
So tonight Im gonna swing by the supermarket and buy some tasty paleo food for the weekend.
Me & my OH have been invited to the in-laws for a BBQ on saturday, I told OH that I didnt fancy it & that he should go on his own - mainly because I just cant face the constant questions about why im not eating this and that. There will be nothing paleo friendly salad wise, and I know that if I just put some meat on my plate everyone will start commenting & I just CBA.
Its a bit sad to miss out on social things because of the 30 days challenge but thats exactley what it is = 30 days. I am happy to give up a BBQ to keep me on track - Ive got all the time in the world to enjoy social events after the challenge is over & i go back to the 80-20 rule.
I so agree with this..... There'e no doubt gastric bands save live.... but if you dont change whats going on in your head you will still 'abuse' food!!!
