Monday, I'm a slacker.....

Was at Crossfit Naperville this weekend getting certified in Crossfit Endurance.
It was awesome!! But, I do apologize for the hiatus from posting... Blogger was down Thursday and Friday, and wouldn't let me post. Saturday and Sunday I was just lazy.

Day 4, It's Wednesday already!

So Dani and I have already "cheated" and gone off of the Whole 30 program. We are switching to Paleo. She is going to incorporate small amounts of dairy, as it does not effect her G.I. system. And I am going to use protein powder and am craving Paleo pancakes, both of which aren't allowed by the Whole 30.
One big announcement!!! My "Everyday Paleo" cookbook just arrived in the mail today.. Wooooot!!!
Lots of great recipes and simple ideas.
Tomorrow we are having Paleo Blueberry Pancakes for breakfast..

Day 3, now we're getting some momentum..

I've been pretty hungry all day, and have been craving something different. So, I stayed up late and made the Meatball and Marinara post from the Facebook event site. If you missed it, here you go.

Marinara has been simmering for an hour and is really light and flavorful. Meatballs have a half hour. Probably going to eat these for lunch and dinner tomorrow..

Day 2, this is easy...

Way to get your clean on people! Day 1 is in the books.
With clean foods you may need to eat a bit more than you think to meet the demands of your active lifestyle. Here's a great list of Clean foods and recipes
I won't mention any names, but someone eh hem Matt, texted me today stating that they were a bit light headed and fainty because they'd not eaten very much.
During my first Paleo challenge, I had a similar experience. The next day the portions were larger for every meal. For lunch that day I filled a popcorn bowl half way with spinach leafs, the rest with chopped up veggies then topped it with chicken and some olive oil. Took me a half hour to find the bottom. But it did the trick.
So, don't be afraid to feed your body.. If it's clean and lean and full of nutrients, you'll be doing yourself a favor.
Here's a good link for you endurance athletes out there..
