I decided that after Christmas and all that holiday eating (even if it was mostly paleo, there were still far too many treats for me that month) I needed a jump start, so I started a 21 day challenge on January 2nd. I made it about 12 days before I caved and had some popcorn w/ the family on movie night. So, in an attempt to actually go 21 days with 100% clean eating, I started another 21 day challenge. I finished it this past Friday night, two days short of 21 days and once again derailed by popcorn. (I'm beginning to think I may have a problem!). Despite the fact that I didn't quite get 21 days in either time, I am feeling so much better with my diet being cleaned up as much as it is. It's amazing what a little tweaking will do! So, I'll probably start another 21 day challenge
But, just so you know, I haven't felt deprived at all during those 21 days. Yes, I caved to popcorn but I blame it on hormones. Seriously, though, I wasn't hungry or counting any kind calories or serving size during this time. I was just focused on eating good clean food and lifting heavy stuff. I can't say I've lost any weight cuz I don't weigh myself anymore, but I feel great and that's what matters right now.
So, here's some of the yummy food I've eaten over the past 21ish days...
Fajita Bowls. Fajita fixin's in a bowl over lettuce. Add some avocado and salsa and yum!
Frittata with mushrooms, bacon and some guacamole on the side.
PW's "Marlboro Man Sandwich" meat and onions, sans bread. Some carrots and celery.
Coffee w/ heavy cream, a chicken apple sausage, fried eggs and 1/2 grapefruit
Stir fried veggies and Ham and Egg cups from Paleo Comfort Foods.
