30-day Challenge: Day 19

Friday, February 22, 2013


19 days DOWN! 11 more to CRUSH!

Somehow I have managed to last this long. Yes, I may have the occasional indulgence of soy milk or all-natural ice cream but if these are my new indulgences, then I think this change has already been successful! My desire to eat processed foods has decreased drastically, and only becomes an issue when I am running behind schedule and want something quick. My major goal to address this issue is to PLAN AHEAD! I have almonds pre-packed in sandwich baggies, but I need to do the same with all my fruits and veggies.

Deciding whether to continue with this plan is going to depend heavily on my budget allowances, because I have gone to Publix once a week versus my usual once a month. I tried to add up how much I have spent, but I threw away most of my receipts in a cleaning frenzy so these are based on my credit card statement:

Feb 1 219.67
Feb 4 32.45
Feb 11 22.50
Feb 17 26.31
Feb 19 64.07

Pre-Paleo my grocery budget was roughly $200 so I have almost doubled that without increasing my revenue.


CF is going well! I walk into the gym thinking there is no way I’ll complete the workout (WOD) but that I’ll try… by the second round I’m ready to collapse but one of the trainers is always there to say “PUSH THROUGH IT!” or “FINISH STRONG” and I’m able to squeeze the last bit of energy from my screaming muscles.

I skipped today (Wednesday) unintentionally because I forgot about an evening appointment. Anyways, my friend suggested I do today’s WOD “GI Jane” on Saturday since it’s open gym. I’m not going to kick myself too hard today because I did have a hectic schedule and on Saturday morning, I’ll remember never to miss a weekday again!

Oh! I finally saw a budge on the scale! It may only have been -0.4 but I was ecstatic! A small voice in my head is reminding me that it’ll probably be back tomorrow but I still have hope that whether it takes a month or three months to reach my goal weight… it will happen following this regime. Scientifically, it has to work!

How are you progressing this week?
What is going to keep you going strong through the weekend?

    Keep up the great work. I've heard great things about Paleo but I never knew it would be so expensive!
