Okay. Paleo is hard, people. Like, really hard. I am entirely too used to eating bread and pastas. I don’t feel fulfilled with it. But I think it has to do with not being prepared for meals. You can’t do this on the fly. Everything needs to be planned out. Here’s what happened. I did it for about a week. Then, I fell off the wagon. I ran 11 miles and got RUNGRY, y’all. I started eating everything in sight. I think I actually scared Philly with the amount of food I was consuming. He questioned if I was pregnant I was eating so much. (Duh! He knows my first sign is lightheadedness and extreme sleepiness.) So, I went back to eating normal.. AKA complete crap. And guess what? Operation EAT ALL THE THINGS persisted into Halloween candy and I have successfully put on 5 lbs in the past 2 weeks. FIVE POUNDS.
So, I am currently on the MyFitnessPal app again, watching my calorie intake. But again.. I am facing the decision of pushing on with Paleo or just trying to decrease the amount of pastas, grains, and breads and trying to choose better options for food and snacks. The good news is, the new job will be better as far as prepping my lunch. I will have actual time to do it and I will only get 30 minutes, so running out to eat isn’t really an option. Plus, I’m on my feet all day and not snacking at my desk– something I was doing at my previous job.
