Week 4 Cleanse

1 month down!

Another great week, feeling awesome, energy great, loving food having no "control" over me! This was the first week that I am actually starting to feel "lean" and see a difference in my body when I look in the mirror, how my clothes fit and, most importantly to me, how I feel when running the trails. Will be doing a 150 minute trail run tomorrow, gonna test again how little calories I can take in before the run and during, wish me luck.

As of 1/30/2010:

Wt loss this week: 1.2lbs
Total since 1/1/2010: 8lbs

Some solutions to eating out on this plan (let's call it modified "Paleo").....

Example of a few things I had to do this week, very busy at work with 2 nighttime presentations:

1. At my first presentation they had a buffet with salad and various deli sandwiches. First of all I ate some eggs and fruit before I went so I was not too hungry. Then I took the turkey and cheese off of 3 sandwiches and put it on a salad, no problem, easy and yummy.

2. One day I ran out of protein at work so I drove through Arby's, got the roast beef sandwich, threw away the bread and ate just the meat and an apple (high in sodium and fat, but not bad in a pinch)

3. Heather and I went out to a "dinner" at the Lobster Bar at Chops with a gift cert friends bought us - since we are on a pretty tight budget, we had already used most of this gift cert last week at the fish market, we had about $30 left. We had one drink, they brought the bread and butter and we were both starving and decided a little cheat was worth it, fantastic bread and free :-) We then shared 2 appetizers and were fine. Still cost about $40 but well worth the $10!

4. Friday night I created a new cocktail, Captain's Morgan and Coke Zero (very good and would be even better with Lime) - no sugar or added calories!

5. Making the pancakes tonight for dinner, adding protein powder to make them even better!

Talk to you all next week, GET THAT SUGAR OUT OF YOUR DIET, IT IS AWESOME, TRUST ME!
