31 Days of Adulting: Day 1
Today is the first day of the 31 Days of Adulting Challenge. I woke up at 6:20 to my first alarm (wahoo!), popped up out of bed and immediately got in the shower. Then I did my hair, moisturized and got dressed before the kids were even done with breakfast. I dropped them off at school fully dressed for the day! Then I came home and took the dog for a walk (good for us both).
Weighing in on day one, I am 167.6 lbs. Ouch. I’ll be honest: I don’t actually have a goal weight. I’m resistant to change and if I don’t drop a few pounds, I’m going to have to get new clothes. It’s too much. I like most of my clothes and I like everything right where it is. Ain’t nobody got time for clothes shopping.
So, the diet plan is Paleo. I love the theory of Paleo and I really believe in it. Even if I don’t drop any weight, I’d like to give it a try and see how I feel. It makes sense to me that your body would be at it’s best if it’s eating naturally.
Breakfast was 2 hard boiled eggs and 3 slices of tomato. Morning snack was an apple. Lunch was nitrate-free meats, and an avocado slice, wrapped in lettuce. Afternoon snack was a spoonful (okay, two spoonfuls) of almond butter (nom nom nom) and dinner was salmon, carrots and broccoli. Everything was really good and I surprisingly didn’t feel hungry throughout the day.
I didn’t have any coffee and was wiped out early in the evening. I was dead asleep by 10:30.
Day one, a success. If the next thirty can go like this, I’m in good shape.
