Day 11 of the 45 Day Paleo Challenge
I woke up, tired, but was determined to exercise and push through my day. I did well for a few hours and was productive in the morning. By the afternoon I was exhausted and battling a nearly crippling headache.
I worked out — it was Testing Thursday!! Remember the 4 sets of exercises I did last week and I wanted to better my time?? Well, I “tested” again this week. My results are as follows:
Work out lasted 5 minutes:
10 – Chair squats
10 – Jumping Jacks
10 – reverse chair crunches (Be Strong Be Free offers a good video on YouTube: http://youtu.be/qolmJa4jq1s)
10 – High Knees (count 1-2-3-1)
I completed this series as many times as I could in 5 minutes. I was only able to complete 3 sets in 4mins.
But in the last minute I substituted in:
50 inner leg lifts left
50 inner leg lifts right
AND because I’m awesome — I also added 10push-ups (this put me over 5min)
I drank water all day and with all the meals.Snack: sliced apples and cinnamon
Breakfast: reheated spinach and egg white scramble
Lunch: Meatballs — I wasn’t feeling too well by this point
Snack: handful of cashews
Dinner: celery sticks and hickory smoked chicken breast.
I really hope tomorrow is better. Pretty sure the headache came on because I waiting too long to eat between snack and breakfast. But by the time I had the opportunity to eat again food wasn’t going to help the headache — I was too far gone.
Today also consisted of this awesome moment: The moment you realize your child needs his “cultural food” to be brought to school tomorrow — and you haven’t made it. Worse? Not having buttermilk OR the ingredients for an alternative. 730p run to the grocery store!
I did sneak a taste of the bread to make sure I wasn’t sending him to school with something that tasted like dirt!! It was soooo freakin’ amazing. Saving that recipe for sure!!
