Day 3

Hey! So far today has been good. I had lunch with some friends ( I got a cobb salad minus the cheese & croutons- see pic). This is the recipe I plan on making tonight http://www.health-bent.com/beef/paleo-hawaiian-barbecue-bacon-burgers. I will let you know how they turn out and post some pics!

I am also going to make some Paleo bars!! YUM. Right now. I will take some pictures of all the things I am making and I will let everyone know how it goes.

Here is pics of the Paleo Bars and of the Burgers. They were delicious. I added extra garlic to ours (like usual) and they were awesome!
We ate these burgers with guacamole and plantain chips.

Day 2

Day 2! The Rosemary Chicken turned out yummy last night. I just used a big pack of chicken from Trader Joes. First I put some salt & pepper on the chicken and then fresh rosemary. I used some olive oil and threw the chicken in the oven at 400 degrees for around 30-40 minutes. I used a bag of broccoli and cauliflower from Trader Joes as a quick veggie side. Just threw some Kerry Gold butter, salt, pepper and garlic salt. Yum.
The dinner plans for tonight have changed. At CrossFit last night we did the WOD called Angie. Which involves 100 pull ups. And this is what happened to my poor hands.  
                                     
Needless to say the last thing I want to do tonight is mix raw ground beef to make burgers. Gross. So We will have those tomorrow instead (hopefully). So today I had a banana for breakfast, leftovers for lunch (with brussel sprouts instead of cauli/broc mix). And tonight for dinner we will have Turkey Cabbage :) Matt's favorite. The recipe can be found here: Turkey Cabbage

Last night Matt and I also went over some of our goals for this challenge. This is what I want to accomplish in this challenge: 

- Paleo for 30 days straight 
- CrossFit 4-5 x a week 
- Cardio 3x a week 
- Lose 10 lbs in this month 
- Wake up every weekday by 8:30 AM 
- Drink at least 100 ounces water a day ( I think this is reasonable but may not be..so this is what I will shoot for but may not reach everyday) 

I may add a few more later, but so far I think these are good goals to shoot for. 

So here are the parameters of my 30 day Challenge: 
- no processed food 
- no dairy 
- no wheat 
- no grain 
- no soy 
- no peanuts 

Basically regular old Paleo BUT I will allow myself SOME dark chocolate. Not a ton. But I like it on my Paleo bars. And my friend Brooke just sent me an awesome recipe for some chocolate chip cookies that may need to make an appearance sometime during this month. 

2 Days down (almost) and 28 to go!!

DAY 1!

And the challenge begins!! Today I woke up and had an apple. Then Matt came home for lunch and we had eggs with a lot of Paleo snacks (plantain chips, salsa and nuts). We had this for lunch because we were literally out of everything! So after lunch I went to Trader Joes and bought lotssssss of groceries. I also made a list of what we will have for dinner the next 3 days. Tonight we are having Roasted Rosemary Chicken with some Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower. Tomorrow we are going to have some BBQ Burgers with Pineapple Slices and Wednesday we're having our Turkey Cabbage. Matt and I decided today we are making our goals for the challenge. I have been thinking about mine this weekend and today. So the plan is CrossFit, cook, goals and bed!! So as for day 1- so far I feel tired and hungry lol. So I might grab a quick nap and snack and will write more later.
