30 Day Paleo Challenge - Day 4

30 Day Paleo Challenge – Day 4
Weight Loss: -3.6

I. Feel. Like. Crap.

Nauseous, shaky, grumpy, restless, weak, tired. Massive headache. 

I think this is the part known as the sugar/splenda/processed food detox.

I’m an absolute treat to be around right now. Just ask Matt. 

It hit me around noon yesterday. The hard-boiled egg whites I packed for lunch? Nope. Didn’t happen. I took one look at them and wanted to throw up. All I ended up eating for lunch was my plain grilled burger and my nectarine, and that was plenty. Plus lots of water. LOTS of water.

I don’t even like eggs, and I don’t know why I try to force it. They are officially off the menu, starting now.

Food just has no appeal at all right now. I know I have to eat to get through the day and for my workouts, but it all just seems so gross.

However, I’m craving the most ridiculous things, like Crystal Light pink lemonade. Pure chemicals, but oh so sweet and tasty. Cookies don’t sound good, neither does pizza. But man, I could go for some Crystal Light. How weird am I?

Don’t answer that.

But I'm not going to give in. Hold me to it.

My burger/nectarine lunch ended up settling well yesterday, so Matt grilled some extras for me last night to last the rest of the week. He also ate my last nectarine. Good thing he’s cute or he’d get a punch in the face.

That’s the shakes talking. I’d never punch him in the face. Maybe.

He did replace the nectarines with a watermelon the size of a toddler, so guess what’s going to be all over my menus for the next ten years?

Plan for today:

Breakfast - I don't feel like eating anything. Anything. Nothing sounds good at all. But I know I'll be hungry later, so I'm pre-making a couple slices of bacon and taking a banana to work. I have meetings this morning, and I usually get snacky in the middle of it. We'll see. Ugh. 

  • Plain grilled hamburger
  • Watermelon
  • Cucumber slices
  • Grilled pork or chicken, whatever thaws out first.
  • Beasty BBQ Sauce for the meat – interested to see how homemade BBQ sauce turns out.
  • Steamed veggies – There’s a mix in the freezer of mushrooms, water chestnuts, asparagus and carrots. Love me some asparagus and water chestnuts!
  • Apple with almond butter, of course.
WOD: - If I go. Wednesdays are typically my rest day, meaning I go out and run 3-4 miles after work instead of going out and lifting heavy things. We’ll see how I feel at 5:00 tonight. 60 wall balls is intimidating. I hate wall balls!!!

5×1 power clean of box (above knee)
5×1 rack jerk (behind neck, use racks)

For time -
100 m Prowler push 90/50
60 wall balls 20/14
30 clean & jerk 135/95

Midline -
3 sets of -
10 GHD sit-ups
10 glute-ham raises

Totally understand the Crystal Light craving! I have so many packets in my pantry, but I refuse to make them because of all the crap. :( Sorry about your head! I had a massive headache yesterday too! I blame the weather. You're doing wonderful, Addie! Keep it up!
