Day 6 of 45 Day Paleo Challenge
Well, I woke up with a headache — probably because I realized it was weigh in day. I also woke-up hungry. Which from the last couple days is an improvement — but I really only ate breakfast.
20 alternating leg lunges
50 L inner leg lifts
50 R inner leg lifts
I didn’t start to eat until very late in the day. This is not good for my metabolism; however, I drank lots of water, and took medication for my headache that was rapidly turning into a migraine.
Breakfast: Banana, 2 eggs in bell pepper flowers, butternut squash, 2 bacons. Water.
Rest of the day I grazed here and there. Trailmix, more bacon, 2 chicken and apple Aidell brand sausages, left over carrot fries. Green tea. I was still left with a feeling of being unsatisfied.
Today’s Weigh-in produced .8lbs loss and loss of 2″ in my body over all.
While these are results, good results, healthy results, and I’m headed in the right direction. I’m feeling frustrated because if I’m going to feel like crap — I want it to produce something! I know… “I’ll feel better soon” — “it will all be worth it.”
I was prepared for being miserable for the first 2weeks as my body detoxes and resets. Here is a sneak peek into the world of getting healthy — that no one wants to show you, admit to, or plan ol’ forgets how shitty it truly is in the beginning. Like how, no one really “remembers” how shitty giving birth to a baby was, “just the precious little bundle in the end is worth it.” All good intentions aside — Fuck off. That shit sucks and it isn’t called labor for nothing! Detoxing and resetting is like that. “Oh, you will feel soooo great! It’s worth it!” — mmmm, yea. I’ll remember that through my screaming headaches, constant urination, gas that could gag a maggot, choking down another glass of water, and while I’m pretty sure I’m not surviving on enough nutrients — I’ll remember, “it is sooo worth it!”
Only about 7-10 more days to before I’m out of the “I’m starving, someone please save me, don’t come near me, I’ll chew off your fucking arm” stage.
