How is the Paleo Challenge going, you ask? I can describe it in two words. I. SUCK. Seriously. I think I am eating worse during this challenge than before I was trying to eat paleo. I crave things I don’t usually crave (cough Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls cough) and since I do not have self control when it comes to sweets, I eat EVERYTHING. Yesterday, may have been my worst day so far (besides last Saturday when I was hungover and ate bagels and chocolate cake). I decided to just try to go back to eating the way I used to; counting calories and making healthy eating choices.
Well, that backfired. Below is the menu a la Ritsa circa yesterday.
Juice/Smoothie (spinach, pineapple, strawberries, grapes, kiwi, and banana).. so far so good
Paleo Custom Fit Meal of Triple B Burger… still going strong.
Slice of Bertucci’s margarita pizza… first FAIL.
Whole grain bagel with butter and jelly… going downhill.
Stacy’s Pita Chips with hummus.. double FAIL.
Graze Summer Pudding (dried berries, sponge pieces, yogurt seeds)… UGH
Piece of Cake with frosting.. Seriously, I finished the CrossFit WOD, walked over to the fridge for a bottle of water, and grabbed a leftover piece of cake instead. REALLY??
2 1/2 pieces of pizza
French fries with ketchup.. no words.
Swiss Cake Rolls.. these are so amazing, I have no regrets.
So, there you have it. What NOT to eat during a Paleo Challenge… or during any day of real life EVER if you don’t want to end up in a diabetic coma.
