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!
