9 Week Paleo Challenge Starts Today!

So I started a Paleo challenge with a group at South Tahoe Crossfit and also 6,500 other people nationwide.  Here is a little more info:  I have done a few shorter challenges based solely on nutrition but this one is a little different incorporating benchmark work outs along with pictures and body measurements to track progress over the 9 weeks.  Instead of spamming my facebook with pictures of food I decided to track my meals here so that interested parties can check it out at their leisure :)  So here goes...

I woke up pretty bloated and not at all hungry thanks to pre-challenge ice cream & chips before bed last night.  So breakfast consisted of iced coffee and a couple strawberries.  I packed up the kiddos and headed to Carson City this morning to hit up Trader Joe's and Costco.  I realized it was after 1pm and I hadn't really eaten anything yet so I went through the McDonald's drive-thru on the way home to get a side salad and topped it with a can of sardines.


Sorry if that is not at all appetizing to some of you, but its really not bad and a super easy meal when you are in a rush.  I buy sardines packed in olive oil at Costco & always keep them around for a snack or meal addition in a pinch :)

Dinner was a little more traditional:

I cooked a whole chicken in a rotisserie machine (thanks Dad!), steamed some broccoli and threw together a salad topped with Paleo Ranch Dressing.  And that is all I will be eating today, drinking some water and heading to bed.  Tomorrow I will be doing the first of three benchmark workouts.  It is called "Randy" and consists of 75 Power Snatches for time (55lbs).  Wish me luck :)
