Day 5/36

B - 2 eggs, 2 slices of bacon, 5 strawberries, 1/2 c cooked spinach, 1 tomato, pecans
S - 2.5 oz tuna, 1/2 small banana, almond butter cup of McAlister's unsweetened tea
L - Honey Pecan Pork chop 12 asparagus

Did really well today and felt really good! The pork chop is delish, but uses a lot of honey, so it's an every so often treat!

Day 4/36

I got up this morning with the urge to create!! So I made "pancakes" and pumpkin lasagna! So yummy!

Here's how I did the Lasagna:

1 lb ground beef
1/2 roll of Natural sausage
3/4 - 1 cup spaghetti sauce (no sugar)
salt, pepper, italian seasoning, basil, oregano

1 - "sugar" pumpkin, halved, gutted, and sliced into crescents

Brown beef, sausage and onion together; drain.
Mix together spaghetti sauce, spices and meat mixture.

Saute the crescent pumpkin slices in olive oil

Layer, pumpkin and meat mixture in a baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!

Almond Flour Pancakes
1 c almond meal/flour
3 eggs
1/8 t cinnamon
1/8 t vanilla
pecans (optional)
wild Maine blueberries (optional)

Mix all ingredients together and spoon onto a hot oiled pan. They won't get fluffy like other pancakes. Flip and cook the other side. Serve with a drizzle of raw honey and topped with sliced bananas or berries.

I was waiting for a Craigslist person to show up and buy something but of course they didn't come. So I didn't get to workout, but I am going after work!

Day 1 Paleo Challege

Ok, with a few months of posting hiatus, I am ready to post daily! Today is the first day of the paleo challenge. It was a rough start when I realized I couldn't eat lunch meat or fruit (I know, I know, moderation), but I've overcome that and here we go!

50 m walking lunge
25 sit-ups

Push press 3x3

5 PP @ 45#

I am coming off of a week of illness and injury. My back is still sore, so I couldn't do the lunge/sit-up wod, so PP instead.

3 whole eggs
3 pieces bacon
1 red pepper
earl grey tea, no sugar :(

Dinner/Very Late Lunch:

For dinner/very late lunch my Mom (also doing the challenge Edie T) ate at Chedder's:
8 oz sirloin steak (ate like 5 oz of it)
1 side salad with no dressing
2 orders of steamed broccoli with garlic
unsweetened tea
