The transformation of a short fat girl

Month – November 2011

Paleo Challenge Report

Well I made it through the first day and am happy to say, I did not falter at all; in fact, I stuck to the plan verbatim. My biggest hurdle so far is the coffee. Oh I can drink coffee; I just can’t drink it with my Splenda and low fat french vanilla creamer. I tried drinking it with 100% coconut milk, but could only get about a half of a cup down. The result of not having my coffee is my energy level is really low. I’m pretty sure I am going through caffeine withdraws.

On the positive side, I was surprisingly not hungry for the most part of the day. I felt like I ate a lot, but when I pretty much eliminated most of my carbs, the amount of calories I consumed weren’t as bad as I thought. The one saving grace was at my 3:00 snack. Because most Larabars are Paleo friendly, they make a great afternoon snack and held me over until dinner.

When I came home from work , Kristy had dinner waiting for me. She made an awesome Paleo Taco Salad which was absolutely delicious. In it was, lean ground turkey browned, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, olives, and cilantro. Not only was the meal tasty, it was also very filling. And, just as the recipe reads, there was enough left over for me to bring to lunch the next day.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Operation Boot Camp’s  Whole9 Challenge

 

Month 8 With A Twist

I’m proud to say that yesterday, I stared my eighth month of Operation Boot Camp. This month will not be like any other month, however. This month, we have been given a challenge.

For the next two and a half weeks we will earn points for the healthy things we do and lose point for the unhealthy things we do. At the end of the two weeks, who ever has the most points, wins.

This challenge basically focuses on living a healthier lifestyle with proper diet, exercise, and sleep. The challenge follows the Whole9 30 Program which follows Paleo Diet. Hopefully, not to my regret, I have accepted this challenge and will be one of the hardest thing I have ever done.

The basics of the diet consists of grass-fed pasture raised meats, fish, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, sugar, and processed oils and any other process foods. Oh yeah, no alcohol either.

I will be posting updates on how I am doing on the plan so keep checking back for updates.
