Week nine of the Paleo diet begins and I haven’t lost another pound, maybe its because of Fathers Day and the need to stuff my face!

  • Font size: Larger Smaller

I haven’t lost a pound in the last week. I bet it was because I ate like a little piggy over the weekend. For a day or so I went from the Paleo diet to the seefood diet, I saw it, I ate it.

 

The day started with a long 3-hour drive to Los Angeles to see Mayra’s family and a few hours later to my parent’s house in Bakersfield. As usual, with any family get together the food was overflowing. In Los Angeles it was meat, rice, beans and of course tortilla’s. My parents had shredded beef, and a bunch of other stuff like deviled eggs, and seven-layered dip. Needless to say the temptation was too great and I caved. Long drives, little to no sleep and great food are all enemies to my waistline.
I would have thought my gluttony had ended on Sunday evening but I was wrong. Late Monday night we got a call that Mayra’s sister in law had gone into labor, so we did the midnight express and drove to Los Angeles arriving at 3:00 a.m. I had great intentions for the drive. I packed a banana and some almonds, which hit the spot on the drive. Yet when I arrived at the hospital completely exhausted I was tempted with “Anyone want something from Jack in the Box”? My mind raced, yep I did, tacos and the rest was history.

Anyway, I felt pretty horrible after backsliding but I’m back on track. Damn, holidays are the worst; they tempt you in every way. In my defense I didn’t have one sugary drink, which is miraculous considering all the stuff, which was lying around. I realized early on when starting Paleo that the sugar-laden drinks were one of my biggest problems. Not sodas, but iced tea, lemonade and fruit punch (all prepackaged powdered mixes) and of course chocolate milk. Pre-Paleo I would put this stuff away, easily three to four very large glasses of the powdered drinks every day and then follow it up with at least two large glasses of chocolate milk a night before bed. *Chocolate milk and chocolate shakes are my addiction, the first step is admitting you have a problem and I have one.

 

Luckily though I didn’t gain any weight even though I pigged out. This week I have been strictly sticking to the diet.

 

 

 

My stamina.

 

The combination of weight loss and diet has led to an obvious increase in my cardio fitness. Although the workouts still kill me and my lungs are begging for relief at the end of each WOD, it takes me quite a lot longer to reach my drop dead point. Plus when I do begin to feel fatigued, my body allows me to continue where it wouldn’t do so before. The big test though is to see if I do better on the rower or during runs.

 

My first real test might be this weekend when I try and break a personal record on a 2K meter row. My last go at it had me sitting at around 8:45 if I remember correctly. I would really love to smash that record and get it lower to around the low 8 min mark or even the high 7’s but we’ll see. The long rows kick my butt pretty bad so I don’t do them that often. I have no problem doing a thousand, but when I go above that everything begins to hurt. As for the running, which I hate, I’m gonna take it easy and gradually increase my distance. I really, really dislike it that much. God bless those who love to do it cause I sure as heck don’t.

 

Gym addition

 

We plan on landscaping the backyard soon, which means outdoor pull-up bars and other fun stuff, but that all depends on my employment status and other business ventures. Were waiting to see how things are gonna be for us in the near future financially before making a decision to drop money into a house that we might be selling. Well that’s it for the week, the games a quickly approaching and talk to you next week.

 

 

 

See you in the hills.
