Snack?

Lunch - Broccoli w/ Tomato Sauce - YUMMY

Snack?

Dinner - Broiled Grouper w/ lemon, olive oil and spices.... as a side it's still up in the air

I accomplished 75! squats this morning... I am almost there!
Good job KM on the squats. Woefully behind here And just sloppy too. Forgetting to put something out to thaw for dinner, missed items at grocery store, etc. To be fair, I've been snowed under with "stuff" that needs to be done. Will make next week stricter. Holy Week anyway...gotta do better. Squat, 1, squat 2....

Good recipe for tonite: Time for that meatball party I
Add a fab chopped salad and ooh mama! Yum!

I'm almost done with my squat challenge. I am going to try to wrap it up today.
I'm happy to report that my garden is growing nicely. The only thing that hasn't sprouted yet are the chives. I replanted them, too, and still nada. Maybe I got a bad batch.

I went over to Sprout's today and got some quinoa (finally), coconut oil, almond flour and lots of nuts and seeds to make nut & seed bars and sesame crackers out of. I found a couple of really cool items, Coconut Dream unsweetened beverage and Spectrum coconut oil cooking spray! When I got it home I looked at the ingredient list more carefully, and it also said "soy" I will still use it, but probably won't buy it again.

woot woot! I completed the 500 squat challenge! It's amazing how a few squats a day have tightened up my muscles in such a short period of time. And how quickly my endurance increased. yay!

Speck!Good for you! Had a not-bad, but bizzy week but should have done more squats. I'm going to be inspired by you and re-up my commitment to doing more (and more) of them. I was ssssoooo sloppy this week. I knew I needed to slow down and take time for well...squats among other things. Trying to pace myself this week since it's another big church week *I'm the flower coordinator* and I can't really wait till it's all over.

Weather here is beautiful and we have actually had rain. Our scorched earth is healing. Been gardening with a vengeance but that is only real exercise I've had. Need to write up on my challenge which is ending next Friday. I will miss it a bit but can't think of anything I want to go run out and buy...except maybe some good goat cheese, and Republic of China Peach T$a oh and am running out of good (read:EXPENSIVE) olive oil. Have to have a cheapie week cuz this last one was sloppy *there's that word again*.

I was busy in the kitchen today. I cooked up a big batch of paleo meatballs, some seed and nut bars and a batch of primal sunflower sesame seed crackers. They're still in the oven, and this is my first crack at them, so I'll let you know how they are later.
... Ok, I'm back. I love these crackers! I love the taste and texture. They will be awesome with spreads and dips. I think I like them better than almond crackers, which are also awesome.

I fell 75 short... due to deciding to go to the beach with DD to catch some rays and get myself into this century and go get an I phone! I downloaded the MDA App - YEAH what a GREAT tool! I also did a cheat :-( Went to red lobster and had a Cheddar Bay Biscuit... Boy oh Boy did I suffer! My old panic attacks came right back into full force.. interesting.... Anyway I am back on track today and excited about my lunch =) I brough a nice avocado and some procutto to wrap around it... yummy! Dinner will be a fast to get rid of the Nasty Wheat that is still hanging around in my system!

I need to lose 2.5 lbs by Thursday... don't think I am gonna make it but hey I am close!

****note the new challenge in my siggy line****

I see that challenge, Missy. I'm back to attempting 500. Speck doing good on hers. I decided that every time I enter kitchen I will do 5 squats. Now, to get into that habit.

Prosciutto, huh? Drooling over here. Lenten challenge ends Friday. Prosciutto on menu Saturday

Kim it sounds like you had a major gluten and/or insulin reaction to that bread. Bummer.

I will take that challenge, but I'm going to be majorly busy the next week so might not post it until next weekend.

I'm still here. The kids are on spring break this week. (which means 4-6 hours of practice/work out a day, but no school they do have today and the weekend completely off)

I am still mostly eating okay. I did eat junk food with the kids one day this past week and woke up feeling like garbage the next day. Maybe that is a good thing to remind me before the Easter Bunny shows up.

Yes, we are also on spring break. I just got back from being out of town last night. I didn't do soooo bad, but did indulge in some chips with home-made salsa and a couple of Easter themed sugar cookies. And some other assorted junk food while traveling. Glad to be home and get back to normal.

Not really because of the wheat and soy and other undesirable ingredients. I would suggest a flax wrap instead, as in here Wheat Belly Flaxseed Wrap Recipe
They are really good. I suggest adding some salt to the recipe.

Challenge Over

The Lenten Primal Challenge Begins..NOW


Whew. It's over. Only so-so about it. Don't know what I would do differently. I guess we did better than 80% each day, at least 90% of the time

Doing some re-evaluating on some pantry items. When I ran out of chocolate, I ran out and that was it. Bought some yesterday. I had to--It's easter FGS.Oh, and gotta go get a handful of trail mix.

Which reminds me--Have a lovely day and Happy Passover *should that apply*.

I finished my Lenten Challenge last week...did ok. But I'm trying to jumpstart my weight loss. Have been in stall and decided to commit to JUDD for at least two weeks. I will be staying as paleo/primal on my Up Days. A little harder on Down Days but the two diets seem to work well together. I still will be grain free, sugar free, white rice, pasta and potato free, etc. as all give me raging heartburn sssssoooo...Hopefully this will give me the push I need to get to goal (155-about 15-20lbs) and can come back and maintain by eating paleo/primal.

No problems over holidays. Ate lots of shrimp and crawfish. Avoided the potatoes and corn.

I'm not any good at fasting. Tried and failed too many times. I "do" nuts by way of my paleo trail mix--one serving *1.25 oz* is 170 calories and 3 carbs. Of course I only get to do that every other day now.

I ran out of trail mix in the middle of my Lenten Challenge and didn't have any for nearly 3 weeks. Did not gain, but did not lose either. STALL.

I find JUDDD down days easier to do primal than up days. I cave too often on up days because I can eat whatever I want on JUDDD. It's usually only the weekends I do this though. Guess that's not too bad. JUDDD works when I work it right. But I've been slacking.

Speck you are doing AWESOME on your Squats! Are you feeling a difference yet? I don't think I am going to make the 1,000 but I hope to be more than the 500 from last month.

hey, Kim, thanks! Yah, I do feel a difference. I've worked up from 25 to 50 with no problems and everything in my legs and behind is firmer. It's amazing how quickly they work. I've been doing pushups, too. Still on my knees, but very challenging for me nonetheless. Anyway, I've worked my way up from being able to do just 5 to 10. My biceps are already noticeably firmer. Now I just need to work in planks, sprints and get a pull up bar

The sprints are suppose to make a HUGE difference in appetite... Not sure why... and it's suppose to kill the sweet tooth craving(that's me!)

Tomorrow at 7:00 (on my day off) I am hitting the Farmers Market for Organic Produce and Fresh eggs (not for human consumption - hahaha) DD is spending the night at a friends house so that free's my morning up! Maybe I will try sprinting... my Pepsi tooth is back STRONG!
