Attempted paleo diet: relative success. My diet looked like this:
Breakfast: 3-4 eggs + vegetables of some sort + a handful of almonds + black coffee
Lunch: Small sandwich (thin wheat bread with flax seeds, turkey breast, spinach/baby lettuce, thick slice of tomato and spicy brown mustard) + veggie + almonds and/or pumpkin seeds + green tea
Dinner: Homemade paleo tacos! (See earlier post for recipe) + veggie + ice water with lemon + some fruit for dessert, mostly green grapes.
Last night I caved and got tacos from Chipotle for 3 reasons; a) every fiber of my body was screaming audibly for carbs with my punished glutes leading the charge. I compromised, but I’m not sorry because b) I still have a gift card with >$50 left on it and c) it’s delicious comfort food and I was feeling a bit blue yesterday.
As for workouts, here’s what was up this week:
Monday - 4 rounds of the following for time: 20 jump squat touch downs, 15 skaters/leg, 20 side-to-side plank crunches, 20 side hop kicks
Tuesday - 2 rounds HIIT, 10 seconds rest/50 seconds working of this shiznit: kettlebell swings, cross-legged burpees, turkish get-ups, crab on balance ball, foot elevated sandbag squat (L and R), skaters, mountain climbers, sandbag squat/lunge combo, full body combo with balance ball. This one was intense.
Wednesday - 60 minute spin class. Goofed around with ab work at home before bed on the balance ball and my dip station.
Thursday (today) - 6 rounds of 10s/50s HIIT: High knees with jump rope, sandbag squat, knee raises on dip station.
