Cut my workout short a little bit because I still have a TON of hw to finish up before my semester ends. And I’m not even anywhere close to being done. I’ll be gone half the day tomorrow because of communion. So yeah. I’m on a huge time crunch. But I was almost not going to go to the gym. But I’m glad I did.
Workout was nice. Took it a slightly slower pace than yesterday because I didn’t want to go too hard two days in a row. Technically today should have been my recovery day. But I’ll let that slide.
My book is picking up more speed and intensity. I wasn’t really looking forward to reading it today. But now I definitely am. Especially because a new love interest has sprouted. Ooo la la ;)
I noticed that I’m hungrier today. THIS IS A GOOD THING!! Finally I have a bit more of an appetite than I’ve been having lately. My protein intake wasn’t too great today. A few grams shy of 100g… but I might eat some greek yogurt right now to pick that up. It was a weird eating day.
In fact, my eating habits are changing. I’m finding that I am no longer hungry in the mornings. I make coffee, and sip on that until about noon. Albeit, I use heavy whipping cream now along with milk, so it’s not flimsy calories. A good heaping of saturated fat goodness without the sugar! :) Then I make myself a big brunch. I’m finding that I usually eat between 12-8pm, with ~8pm being my last meal since I go to the gym in the evening, come home and go to sleep. I don’t really find a need to snack after my workout, unless I finish early. Not really sure if that’s ideal. But I’m going with it. I’m going to follow my gut and only eat when I’m hungry.
I’ve decided that once my final on Monday is over, I’m going to go paleo. I’m going to stick to ~50g carbs a day, no dairy, and no grains. I can do the no grains thing, easy. Dairy is going to be a little harder. Like, a lot harder. I can’t drink my coffee black, and I need coffee. Also, cutting out excess sugar will be the hardest probably. Mostly because there’s sugar creeping in the most random foods! I eat my meats with a lot of sauces (bbq, ketchup, salsa) and those contain at least a couple grams of sugar. So yeah. It’s going to be a challenge. But I want to do it. And 30 days won’t kill me. I’ve consumed dairy all my life, but I’m curious if I have any kind of intolerance nonetheless. This will be an interesting challenge. :) I’ll start it on July 5th as July 4th I’ll be stuffing my face with burgers, burger buns, hot dogs, insane amounts of watermelon, and probably some sweets. Perhaps it will be the last day I treat myself to some munchkins as well. hehehe :D
Tomorrow is my weigh in. I have no idea what to even expect as I haven’t weighed myself since last Sunday. eep. I actually felt super super bloated today. The kind of bloated where you can’t even suck in your stomach. LOL. I drank a lot of water. I’m hoping it goes down in the morning so I don’t look like a pregnant whale in my pencil skirt. But definitely not getting my hopes up, and definitely not anticipating a loss. Sorry to disappoint! k, I need to shower. :)
