Well...I did it! I finished my first official 5K. I did not go back and check my time because I don't want to know just how poorly I did considering I was one of the last to finish. That's ok though...I still ran it and got the first one under my belt. I am planning on doing plenty more and training harder. I think this could become an obsession for me...but a very good obsession none the less. My quads and bottom hurt so bad during the run. In fact it has taken me longer to do anything today just because of the pain. Even peeing takes twice the time because I have to coax myself down on the seat. When I got home from the run I took a 4 hour nap. I was exhausted!
Breakfast: 2 eggs, apple, almond butter
lunch: lobster tail, squash, and zucchini
diner: Ready for my story? So we had a cook off today which a group of our friends does once a month. Today's cook off was burgers. No big deal right? Wrong! Well...first I tried to tell Rob that I would just watch and not participate because I did not want all that non Paleo food in my body, but Rob gave me a hard time about it. So I decided to take small mouse bites of the burgers and a few of them I took off the buns on my mouse bite. I even convinced one of the participants to give me a Paleo burger (just the patty with tomato and bacon). He earned extra points on my score card because he catered to me. So, after beating myself up over my mouse bites the whole way home, I have finally convinced Rob to let me just watch the next time and bring my own Paleo food.
2 Paleo cocktails. I am really beginning to enjoy this tequila. That can only mean trouble!
So I am down 5 pounds (and I even weighed myself after I ate). This is good news! I have decided that I enjoy the way I feel so much while eating Paleo that I am going to continue eating this way long after the challenge is over.
