Starting to see things move in the right direction. One pound down and down a little in my measurements. Glad to see it. 


If you're interested in detailed tracking of what foods I'm eating, etc you can find my daily Going Paleo vlogs here.

I am starting to realize that Paleo means a lot of different things to different people. Not wildly different, but it can get a little tough when looking for what exactly to tweak to get better results. I'm thinking I should have picked a specific book (I'm liking Robb Wolf's best) to follow for this month. For instance fruit, there are differing opinions on how much someone trying to lose weight on Paleo should eat. The same with nuts and even fats. Depending where you look you will find something different. 

So, I am just going to take in all the information and then try to go with what I think is best for my body.

My workouts were a little less frequent than I'm used to. Mostly because they were much more effective and I was SORE. After the impromptu workout I did while watching my boys play I was seriously sore for three days! Boosted my confidence that I do know what to do and don't always have to rely on a DVD or something else. I definitely pushed myself harder than I have for a while.


I still feel fantastic. So fantastic that I don't think I will roam too far from this way of eating. I'm planning to 'go Primal' for September. Then I will probably settle on some version of Paleo/Primal to stick with. Oh no, will I have to rename my blog?! ;)
