I was one of the lucky ones who had a three-day weekend this past weekend (thank you government). My weekend was full of moving around but not very Paleo eating habits. Sat I got a 4.2 mile run in and an hour-long yoga class. Yoga was awesome this weekend, my teacher was super high energy and we were sweating!! I have also found that when I run to yoga I’m warmed up, more flexible, and able to get more out of class. I took Sunday off from running but did get in a 2+ mile walk. I’m really happy with work outs last week, I started using dailymile again and I moved a cumulative 26 miles and clocked 8 hours of running, lifting, soccer, and other activities. Not too shabby! I took advantage of having Monday off and went hiking for the day and also had a soccer game. Lots of movement! Here is some quick food porn of the non Paleo eats I ended up with… then we can have a quick chat about flourescent lights in changing rooms.From top to bottom: 1) Chicken wing sauce demo class, my two favorites were the two shown in this picture, buffalo bleu cheese and peach bourbon. I typically hate bleu cheese but I sucked it up and tried these wings and holy heck were they amazing. 2) Jumbo slice, I place it next to my clutch for a size comparison, note that it takes two paper plates to move this baby, I did split it though! 3) Beef Souvlaki pita, tried a new Mediterranean place that was awesome and got some pitas!
After all this food to say I was feeling slightly lethargic is an understatement. I went grocery shopping and picked up a few veggies and made a massive pot of vegetable and shredded chicken soup to live off of for lunches / possibly dinner for the week. A little re-set to the system if you will. With the holidays coming up I need to quit these horrendous weekend eating habits. I have proposed a few side dishes for my dad to make for Thanksgiving dinner that are all Paleo friendly and he is being a good sport about it : )
Flourescent Lights: I went to Old Navy on Sunday to try on some work out gear because I had a buy one get one 75% off coupon (amazing right) and I really like the Active line at the store. Well going into this dressing room and the mirror and the lights, oye. I had quite the moment that ruined a few hours of my day. I know I am not fat by any means but those lights!??! Has this ever happened to you? I mean I just went on a strenuous hike I had been super active all week and it took 5 minutes in that dressing room for my confidence to plummet. WHYYYY.
Q: Do changing rooms ever crush your soul a little too?
Q: What do you do when you have one of these moments?!
