PaleoKim’s 21 Day Sugar Detox Journal Entry – DAY 10

21DSD-cover-draft

FINALLY – double digits and almost halfway there! Good bye snow and hello rain! Got up and went to my Ashtanga yoga class. Did I mention I am starting a yoga instructor course? Yea me!…! The only hard thing I think will be the time commitment (it takes over an entire weekend – Friday 4 – 9 night and Saturday and Sunday from 9-4). Other than that I am totally stoked to do this – I can see myself teaching yoga long after I retire from my main job. Even Non-Paleo Mark seems to be okay with me doing it. It will allow him to spend more time in bed on the weekends without feeling guilty I think. Awww – that’s not fair – he is still working hard on Saturdays even though its freakin’ cold outside.

KIM’S BREAKFAST: After yoga, I came home and shoveled warm-up sausage and kale mix.

KIM’S LUNCH: Went to eat a pepperette stick again mid-afternoon and noticed some mold on a couple of them. GROSS! I ate one yesterday and it really makes me want to throw up now. UGGHHH… Had a salad and since we decided to check out the new THOR movie I packed some sliced cucumber, yellow pepper and radishes to bring with me along with a couple of medjool dates and some banola. I still cannot go to a movie without snacking. Made Non-Paleo Mark stop off at Tim Horton’s and grabbed two XL Peppermint teas. Needless to say I had to pee at all of the great parts in the movie but I stuck it out like a trooper much to my kidneys’ chagrin. BTW Chris Hemsworth really does have the body of a God. I would seriously pray to him (no offence to my religious peeps).

 

KIM’S SUPPER: I had made some marinated chicken yesterday from Nom Nom Paleo’s iPad app – it is called Fiona’s Phenomenal Green Chicken  so when I got back from the movie I popped that in the oven then quickly ate three chicken thighs. It was great and hot and crispy.

 

SNACK: Ate the remainder of the banola I had packed for the movie and watched Walking Dead. OMG such a good show!!

 

Paleo Kim’s Introduction

Hi everyone,This is Passion for Paleo’s sister Kim – Keri has asked me to come on a post in order to make me more social about my Paleo and my efforts involved to be all “Paleoy”. Since I started a 21 day sugar detox and I am doing the plank challenge as well and because misery loves company, I agreed to post once a day if I could (or felt like it – I am the older sister you know so I refuse to give her what she …wants).

Here is some simple addition that results in me:
Add the following: Always relatively active (scuba instructor in my twenties / went to the gym once in a while ) + Quit smoking twice + Hate cooking so quick and convenient meals for me and the family it is = a 43 year old woman who never thought she would have weight issues but realizes she needs to do SOMETHING!
Over the last 10 years I went on weight watchers and never really seemed to lose – I tried Herbal Magic which did work until I stopped buying their ridiculously expensive pills. Fast forward to last March when I started my Paleo diet (scratch that – life style change) to lose 50 – 60 lbs. It was easier than I thought even though neither my husband or son eats that way (I now make two meals most nights!) but I am down almost 40 lbs.
Everyone I know tells me I look great and I am vain enough to want to keep hearing it but what truly makes me feel great about myself is that I refound my love for yoga (Ashtanga especially) and I am stronger and more fit than I have been since before I met my husband (some of it is still hiding under a bit of fat but the muscles are there)! If you want to follow along on my 21 day journey (or better yet – join me!) please read my posts and comment!
