First Day of Paleo

My first day of paleo went pretty well! Drank a lot of water and ate to my heart’s content. I only felt hungry when I was hungry, but because I’ve been foodblogging I’ve sure noticed how many times I get up to grab a snack.

Breakfast – 6 egg white scramble

Snacks throughout the day – banana, orange, dates, raisins, cranberries, almonds

Dinner – Oregano and curry dusted salmon with 2 red potatoes, mashed (no additives)

End of the night: Green tea and an orange

I’m trying to get back into resistance training during this marathon recovery period, so I fired up my GAINfitness application and set up a 45-minute, 3-4 sessions a week plan. Here’s the circuit I completed:

  • 1 set of Jumping Jacks Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 1 set of Trunk Rotations Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 1 set of Seal Jumps Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 1 set of Heel Walks Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 1 set of Seal Jumps Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.

  • 1 set of Ankle Circles Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 1 set of Trunk Rotations Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 1 set of Squat Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 1 set of Side Lateral Raise Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 3 sets of Squat Max reps 12, max weight 14 lbs.
  • 2 sets of Ab Twist Max reps 12, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 4 sets of Lunge Max reps 13, max weight 0 lbs.

  • 2 sets of Lying Quad Stretch Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 2 sets of Ab Twist Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 2 sets of Standing Groin Stretch Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.

  • 1 set of Downward Dog Pose Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.
  • 1 set of Wide-Legged Forward Bend Max reps 0, max weight 0 lbs.

So far, so good! I’m heading into a full day of design and school so I’m prepping my food now. My class was curious about Green Vibrance so I’m bringing a canister for everyone to try it out. 🙂 I plan on squeezing in another workout this morning, but my lower body is so sore…maybe I can just focus on my upper body. Hope I can stay on track!
