I was doing pretty good last week, I kept the diet consistent all throughout the week…. that is …. until the weekend came. Tun Tun Tunnnnnnn
Day 5 consisted of a protein plate for breakfast, lunch I went to Ghengis Grill and had Turkey with carrots, celery and onions. I added Bean Sprouts insteas of pasta.
I had a rehearsal dinner to attend that evening for my lovely friends Sarah and Greg. The dinner was held at Fralo’s pizzeria in Boerne, Tx. I ate some absolutely delicious pizza and fried zucchini which is NOT at all Paleo. Sometimes, when you are hungry you end up justifying the meal by saing… “oh its only one day!” That One day though is the gateway to day 2 and 3, which is exactly what happened to me =(
Day 6: Breakfast- 2 Ham and egg tacos on corn tortillas, Lunch: Egg salad sandwich, Dinner: Pan-crusted chicken, grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes.
MIMOSA’s and vodka waters followed suit at the wedding reception
Day 7: Breakfast- Grilled Chicken with bell peppers and onions and a Tecate michelada, Lunch- Guacamole salad, Beef Fajita meet with lime juice.
When I came back to work on Monday I was feeling a little down that I had cheated on my Paleo diet. I had a long week ahead of me with work and I knew the time consumption to create my own meals was going to be a challenge.
Day 8: Breakfast- Coffee and protein plate, Lunch- Turkey, Brisket, and Sausage from Rudy’s, Dinner- White Fish Ceviche, Tilapia with Tomatillo sauce and a guacamole salad from Aldaco’s. I also had a Michelada with dinner. (Note to self…. Quit drinking beer!)
Day 9: Breakfast- Coffee and protein plate, Lunch- Tuna Salad (tuna, pico de gallo, and an avocado) Dinner: Lemon Pepper Chicken, grilled asparagus and corn.
When I was driving home from work, i decided that my lack of time was not enough of an excuse to eat badly. So, I went to check out a place that my friend Jenna was talking about during the wedding this past weekend.
Its called My Fit Foods: Fresh Food, Preservative Free and Never Frozen!!! These meals are prepared for you on the go. You can stock up your weekly meals and not have to worry about portioning them out because they are done for you. I bought 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches so that I could try them out for the rest of the week. So far, I like what I have tasted!
Day 10: Breakfast- My Fit Foods Good Morning Sunshine (Turkey, Egg Whites and Pico deGallo) Lunch- My Fit Foods Killuh Green Chicken (Boiled chicken, cubed and then boiled in a tomatillo/cilantro sauce. This dish is served on a bed of quinoa.) Snack: PB Oatmega3 bar
Day 10 is looking up for me…. I hope I can finally get my energy back. These My Fit Food meals also have options that are in line with the Paleo Diet. I am going to focus on eating as healthy as possible without giving myself a million limitations. I need to remain sane!
