Paleo Weekend with Family

Posted by cavewomanrunner on November 10, 2008

So it’s been 22 days on my new Paleo lifestyle. I don’t think I’m going to track every single meal, every single day. It has been good to provide me information on what I’m eating. I may revert back to the method in the future, but for now I will probably just report when I fall off the Paleo wagon, so to speak!

This weekend was a challenge. I had family in town and I was also working most of the weekend. Family + crazy work schedule usually = bad eating. But I didn’t have any problems this weekend. Before work I would grab eggs or fish. I avoided eating out so I could eat my own cooked meals. Even over at my brother’s house, they had fresh fruit from a party the night before, so I was able to get some great food in me! I still find I’m eating lots of nuts, but again I think this is ok. It doesn’t hurt my tummy and I’m still getting lots of protein and other veggies.

I was also able to get in two runs – 6 miles on Sunday and 5 miles early Monday morning. The 6 miles I added in several strides and felt great. I was a bit tired for the 5 miles the next morning, but got through it and feel better afterwards. I’m also finding that if I only work out for an hour or so, I don’t feel depleted and like I need extra carbs or sugar.

However, this week was also my “rest week” so to speak – only 27 miles total. Next week I start building again (31, 32 and then 34). We’ll see how I do on the longer runs (up to 20 miles).

I will keep using this blog as a record of my progress. I would like to check in after a full month of Paleo has passed, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be more of the same praises!
