Paleo Challenge, Day #4

Weigh-in: 170.8! Yeah, buddy!

Note: check back later for full update (I just like to post my weight first thing in the morning).

I am dressed like a ninja.

Exercise: Ran 3.13 miles in 33 minutes. How come I’m so slow? Is it fair for me to blame the cold weather? I’ve lost 10 lbs over holidays, so it’s not weight gain. Oh well. Whatever. I’m outside running, in any case.

2 pieces of bacon, 2 eggs scrambled with spinach, chopped shallots, red, yellow & green peppers.

Breakfast: 2 pieces of bacon, another amazing 2-egg scramble– all scrambled in the bacon grease! YUM! I did scramble in a few potatoes & some tiny pieces of green bean (was trying to get rid of a bag of frozen stuff from Trader Joe’s). I’m not going to lose sleep over it.

Snack: my little trail mix baggy (pistachios, dried cranberries, pepitas, & almonds)

Lunch: some sweet potatoes mashed, some steamed vegetables & pulled pork.

Pulled pork, steamed veggies & sweet potatoes mashed from Rub BBQ.

Snack: (I was hungrier than normal): clementine & some pistachios.

Dinner: half a chicken. No lie. Flame-broiled chicken, no less & no more. No salt, no extras… but still… that’s a lot of bird.

I’m really full. Overdid the eating today.

Had 2 glasses of red win at book club tonight.  It was delicious. The company excellent.

Oh, hey. It’s 2011.

New Year’s Resolution: write more shit. That’s a classy way of saying I mean to write in this blog frequently, whether or not I feel like it. Whether or not I feel clever or literate. So there.

2011= Big Changes. And not just because I’m really excited about HBO’s “Game of Thrones” or what’s next for my favorite Chicago-area wizard, Harry Dresden (of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files book series).

2011 will be major, I’ve decided. I’ve been testing out the Paleo lifestyle (check out Robb Wolf’s The Paleo Solution) for past month & plan to get serious with in on Jan. 3rd. I’ll try to blog about my triumphs & setbacks. Or not. I’ll see how it goes.

Also, I really want to do the Detroit Free Press 1/2 Marathon in October, so I’ll keep this thing updated (via Daily Mile) with my progress. I’m registering for Chicago’s Shamrock Shuffle (April 20) & I really want to do at least one Warrior Dash this spring/summer (…mainly for the helmets & beer).

Also, I want to lose 20 lbs before winter turns to spring– there are dresses I need to be wearing. I’m too young and attractive to be so frumpy. I’m 30 & I’ve only got a few years before I reach my peak in aesthetic appeal… then the big decline.

To boot, I’m dating someone terrific & three months in– we’re still having loads of fun. I think so, anyway.

2011. Big things.

BRING IT.
