Well, it's over. It's really, really over. It's so good to be eating REAL food again. Not that what I was eating wasn't real. It just wasn't ideal. Now I can eat things that are green, and red, and blue, and yellow!
I didn't post yesterday due to work and school, and a hectic schedule in general, but I sure did eat well! Luckily it fell on my rest day so instead of going to the gym, I got up and went to the grocery store before going to work, and I bought plenty of food for the day- most of which was eaten in one meal at lunch time.
2 pound bag of sugar snap peas
A harvest salad (greens, dried cranberries and apricots, walnuts, bleu cheese crumbles, apples, etc.)
A red bell pepper
A pint of blueberries
1 delicious bar of Green & Black's 85% chocolate
(And a pound of pork ribs from the freezer.)
I ate about 1/3 of the peas through the morning at work. Those things are surprisingly filling! At lunch I feasted (and I mean FEASTED) on the salad, pepper, and ribs. I didn't know my gut could hold that much food, but it was SO GOOD! I ate some of the blueberries but saved the rest of them, along with the chocolate bar for my math class- which I desperately needed to keep me distracted from the inane yammering of the professor. Can't I just study, take the final, and call it good? No, Instead I'm stuck with a gopher-like impersonation of Kevin James for three hours.
Grocery shopping happened tonight. I had a few odds n ends to pick up for the next couple of days, and some supplies for my Imbolc potluck on Saturday. I'm going to have a friendly little get together of local Pagans to celebrate the changing of seasons, even if Phil did predict another 6 weeks of winter. With any luck it'll be as pleasant as the last few months. The remainder of the grocery shopping will happen this weekend no doubt, as I resume normal Primal eating.
Today I picked up (not counting party foods):
1 Red pear
Today's eats were fantastic. Ribs and the remainder of the peas (about a pound, if not more) for breakfast, and a Porterhouse steak with roasted Brussels sprouts and kale for dinner, and a red pear for dessert.
I was considering attempting a $20 per week grocery limit challenge for the month of February, but I've decided to give myself at least a month of normal Primalhood before playing with my food budget. I am, however, going to participate in the 1000 squat challenge that a friend posted on Facebook. Being that February is a short month, that means more squats per day will have to happen. I'll keep a running tally as I post.
Day 2: Total Squats = 60
And this is what a Primal feast looks like. This is how I said "Goodbye" to Winter Stores and "Hello!" to spring.
