I have been trying to get gung-ho about eating paleo for awhile now, but today I am deciding to be gung-ho or else. Why? Because I found a pair of size 6 pants that fit before I got pregnant and I would really like them to fit again. I was hoping I could talk a certain somebody into being hardcore with me for a month, because I know if I cheated before he did that he'll make fun of me for the next 10 years, but he declined. So I've decided that you, Internet, are going to be volunteered to keep me accountable. If I mess up, you get to hold it over my head forever. Or at least until something else cool happens online. I do have one disclaimer up front. I do not know how many days it is until Thanksgiving and I am too lazy to look, but I think it's less than 30. Regardless, my 30 day challenge will end on Thanksgiving. Because it's Thanksgiving. Other than that, no exceptions or cheats! Here are the guidelines:
No dairy, except cheese. Strict paleo usually has no dairy, but most cheese has no carbs and makes food so delightful!
No soda, no candy, no ice cream
Very little added sugar
Two fruits a day max - one at breakfast and one for dessert after dinner if I'm craving something
Exercise at least 3x a week in some form or fashion
For any good accountability, we need records! So here's a small sampling of my stats:
Starting weight: 168.7 lbs
Starting waist size: 39.5 inches
Starting hip size: 43.0 inches
Starting waist to hip ratio: .93 (bad - you really want .81 or below)
I'm keeping more stats on my computer, so we'll see how I do. Internet, you've been officially volunteered. Let's do this.
