Day 7 - Sunday

7:00am - banana and almond butter

7:30 - Golds gym - work on pushups, pullups, and double unders. 10 minutes on hydromassager (tired today, not much energy - legs still dead)

9:00am - breakfast - protein shake with pumpkin and an apple, turkey breast

12:15pm - lunch - salad with rotisserie chicken, spinach, asparagus, tomato, avacado, carrots, pecans - asian vinagrette , 1 clementine orange

4:30pm - 2 crab cakes - melissa's recipe - YUMMMM! I served with trader joe's garlic mustard aioli - it was awesome! carrots and red peppers with guacamole

7:30pm - lean ground beef burger on roasted portabella mushroom cap with guac on top and butternut squash fries - again melissa I think? Even better than sweet potato fries. I seasoned with garam masala and they were perfect. Great superbowl eating and all paleo. Getting used to carrying my water bottle around all day and just refilling - going on 3 weeks now without diet coke - longest run ever.

For the most part this was a good week. I am enjoying all the cooking and the great variety of good quality foods. Energy level was not good for the weekend run but other than that have felt ok for weekday workouts. Hand calluses really hurting today - my hands are definitely becoming more caveman like:) If anyone is reading this I would love to hear about everyone else's first week.


  1. Hi! I'm reading : ) I just completed my 4th week. The first three days of this past week I felt awful. I had a stomach ache and was nauseous, which is not something I'd experienced. Thankfully, that has passed. I went to TJ's today and got the aioli mustard I read about on your blog. It's really good. I'm having some of it with a portobello 'shroom and some other goodies tomorrow~thanks for the ideas! I made coconut chicken curry tonight and coconut & walnut macaroons. Yes, I like coconut. Since I bailed on the Super Bowl party, I thought I would treat myself and the macaroons hit the spot!. I've sent the recipes to Dan. Have a great week!
