Day 1 Paleo

And so it begins.  Another week, another chance to do right by ourselves.  I've got a plan.  Hubby and I spent yesterday planning out our food for the week and did some grocery shopping.  So meal plan for today.

Morning coffee with sugar and cream.
Breakfast:  Crustless Frittata
Lunch:  Tuna salad with tomato slices
Snack:  Nuts
Dinner: Chicken fajitas minus tortillas

I'm tracking my food and exercise on my fitness pal so that may help with accountability.  I sure hope so.  This week is all about the food my friends.  Detoxing my body of all the processed junk.  Next week, I'll incorporate the exercise.  I'm not aiming for perfection...80/20 rule still applies but I'm knuckling down.

Weekend was good.  The girls had a play date Saturday morning so it was good to get them out of the house and playing with some other kids in the neighborhood.  Saturday afternoon, we cleaned bathrooms and had lunch (exciting stuff).  Then at the last minute,  Hubby and I had our niece come to babysit and we saw the Avengers movie and went out to dinner.  It was nice to see a movie when it first comes out as opposed to months later for a change and this movie (if you like the comic hero movies) was AWESOME.  Truly enjoyed it.

Sunday, we did the grocery shopping, picked up some odds and ends at Target, tried to find something new for me at Kohl's (struck out) and then hung out at home.  Really wasn't ready to come back to work today but tis life.

I have yet to have my engagement and wedding bands resized and don't plan to until I know I am done losing weight which I'm assuming will be when I hit goal.  Luckily, it fits on my right hand but it still makes my left hand feel bare.  So for the last week or so, I've started wearing a ring that used to belong to my grandmother on my left hand.  I think it looks pretty good.  I have no idea if the diamonds are real (it's definitely NOT a silver or gold band) but it's sparkly and will be a good place holder until I have my rings resized.

So that's all I got this Monday morning.  I'm about to log my coffee in mfp to get started with that.  Special thanks to Angie and Andrea who friended me on there to show support.  It is definitely appreciated!

We went to the Avengers as well, it was the only comic book I liked as a kid and I think the movie was AWESOME!

I am excited to see how the Paleo goes, in my head I think how great it would be. Then I think about cutting out processed stuff and I get scared, I am a total wimp! I need you to scout out the area for me and prove that I won't die with a lack of preservatives in my diet. :)
