3 Things on Friday
- I think my skin is getting better from Paleo (What’s Paleo?). A quick Internet search will tell you that eating Paleo is known to help skin, and as one gets rid of all dairy, processed food, sugar, and grains (wahoo for me!) while eating Paleo, it kinda makes sense. Although… I should note that my face skin care regime is simply water on my face in the shower, and I usually don’t worry too much about it, but I’m THIS CERTAIN it’s smoother, and THIS CERTAIN there are not as many blackheads to find under my constant magnifying glare (which actually makes me kinda sad. Hmm blackheads. TMI? Deal.)
- I admit, I am getting lazier with Paleo. If one was to take a gander at my My Fitness Pal account they’d quite quickly see I am simply grabbing fruit for breakfast. THIS IS BAD. THIS WILL NOT DO. I need to put effort in and cook eggs and bacon and make Paleo Life delicious. Last night’s dinner was simply leftover veggies on kabobs + bacon. AND. The scale has gone up the last three days and this makes me really sad as I’ve been so perfect.
- I think telling everybody is the key to making sure Paleo is a success (or at least a 12-day success - as that’s all I can claim so far). This was the first weight loss endeavour I set for myself that I announced on The Facebook. The Instagram. The Twitter. The EVERYBODY IN MY WORLD. To be honest, the Sunday night before I started Paleo I was REALLY nervous of attempting it, but I think the fact I’ve told everybody has kept me on track (the peeps in my office would be all like, “SAY WHAT?!” if they saw me sneaking a cookie from the jar 4 feet away from me). The above photo (bottom, right) is this morning’s morning tea. I whipped up these Paleohmygod Chocolate Coffee Bars from my absolute favourite Paleo Recipe website, Paleomg.com. They were super delicious, but a b*tch to make - seperate post will have to come on that.
Over ‘n out. 3 hours until the weekend. CrossFit after work. And then dinner with a friend.
