Day 14: Done
Wanted to eat like everything today. But I was not hungry really at all. I just wanted to eat. Period started today. That could explain a lot…or it could just be an excuse for a lot.
The CrossFit gym I’ve been obsessively going to (didn’t go today, though) is starting a 2 month Paleo challenge beginning September 1st. And for some reason, I just got really interested in it the past two days. The actual challenge they are doing comes with some other stuffy-stuff and costs some $. You also get a body fat test and the person with the largest percentage decrease in body fat over the 2 months wins a cash prize. I love a competition. I’d love to try it. So, considering it. Tried a modified Paleo day. I still had my morning oatmeal (absolutely no grains on Paleo) and I had a raw brownie and sampled a raw cacao truffle at Erewhon today. But, other than that, I had salmon and mustard for lunch. I also had some turkey meatballs with chard and spinach, a green juice, a lot of astragulus, 2 figs, some currants (too many…), and sugar snap peas right now as I write this (which is way to close to bedtime to be eating, but period…right…good excuse for anything…) Oh and I also sampled the banana bread pudding at Whole Foods when I went there to get some ground turkey to possibly make my own turkey meatballs this week while I experiment out how I do Paleo-y.
Oh, I love making my life an experiment.
Very very shocked that I’m all ok with–and more than that, actually enthusiastic about–this Paleo thing. Especially since I was vegetarian for 5 years and most of my California life I’ve never eaten meat. And this doesn’t seem like a big thing to me. I think it’s because it is kind of tied with a competition and I thrive on that. And it is a new challenge for me and my body and I like challenging myself in very new ways. In fact that was a major reason why I went vegetarian that freshman year of college–I though it would be a challenge and I wanted to meet it.
Well, here’s the next one.
So, when not rehearsing or working on my character stuff for the next film I’m doing next month, I was researching the Paleo diet and Paleo-friendly recipes. Even planning on getting some bison at Rawsome on Wednesday since I couldn’t make it over there today.
I’ll still eat oatmeal, though.
