I stepped on the scale and my jaw hit the floor!

Friday, April 19, 2013

Last night we went out to dinner to Kell's Irish Pub - I ordered a diet coke and looked over the menu. To stay on track I might have opted for the veggie wrap(tortilla=not Paleo) or hummus plate(pita,chickpeas=not Paleo) but since doing all this reading on Paleo I talked my BF into sharing the sweet potato fries and then I had the shepperd's pie for dinner (potatoes, ground beef, peas, carrots, onions, gravy). I'm pretty sure I stayed within my calories and it tasted great!

We came home and I probably would have not ran but we my BF and I had a small disagreement so I put on my shoes to run off some steam (he came out to the garage and stopped me after a couple minutes to give me a hug and make everything all better - I love him so much!!!) I finished my 4 miles, took a shower, and then pretty much feel asleep. I was wiped.

I woke up this morning, sore, and considered skipping my run since I ran the night before but I got up anyways. I was going to try another 4 miles but ended up cutting it short at 2.5, wiped and knowing that I'm going to want to do my long run (8 miles) tomorrow (or Sunday if I decide to rest Saturday instead).

But before I got on the treadmill I got on the scale - AND MY JAW DROPPED! Now, I was surprise to see a 144.0 yesterday... totally happy. This morning it was 142.2! I looked in the mirror and basically just didn't believe it. Wild. I wonder how much is cutting out grains and dairy? Plus I got my 500 monthly minutes trophy this morning - yay!

This morning there are bagels and cream cheese in the kitchen here at work - NO THANK YOU!!! I will be having strawberries again for breakfast - yum!

I'm so happy! Happy Friday Everyone!

    I really like how you succeeded with the challenge of eating out. It's totally motivating for us newbie Paleos. Way to go!

    Congrats! I cut out wheat and all sweets during lent and lost 8 pounds. I've since gained back a few since my mom passed away but back to no wheat and sweets next week and things will be back on track. Great job!

    Congrats! Good luck in your weight loss journey!

I've started losing weight again once I cut out gluten and cut way back on dairy products.
