Today is day 3 of following a primal/paleo lifestyle. So far so good. I am still eating some dairy. Mostly cottage cheese, string cheese sticks and yogurt, but I only eat that a couple times a week. I'm trying to phase it out. No grains has been way easier than I thought it would be!
I guess I am committed to this lifestyle right now. Most of my dreams last night revolved around food which I think is hilarious. Especially the dream where I was in a car with DH and I was eating a go cup full of dry cereal. I looked at the cereal and said "What the hell?! Why do I have this? I don't eat this crap!"
It reminded me of the smoking dreams I used to have when I first stopped smoking. I woke up feeling like this must be the right choice for me if after 3 days of no grains I'm dreaming about them. (kinda weird too, that I really never was much of a cereal eater, but oh well lol) Dreamt about bacon and avocado too. mmmm.
I haven't weighed myself and I won't until my normal weigh day on Saturday. I don't feel like I've lost any weight but I don't have all the bloat that I'm used to and I like that. I'm also noticing that my knees don't hurt as much as they usually do. I hope that continues.
I really think I'm going to like this way of eating/living. It makes sense to me, but it's very scary to let go of all the "conventional wisdom" to just see what happens. And that's exactly what I'm doing - seeing what happens. If it turns out I'm wrong, I can always go back
No harm. No foul.
