Well, the last two weeks have been a challenge to say the least. Having a sick baby is no joke, and of course that translates into very little sleep!
So, what better way to get through a tough time than getting back to basics. Small workouts to keep my adrenaline up and paleo to keep my diet simple and straightforward. When all else fails, keep it simple, right? Right.
I stuck with Paleo for almost a year before I got pregnant. I think it’s one of the few “diets” that actually feels like a lifestyle change instead of just a phase or a fad. I lost about 20 lbs last time, and this time things are a bit different since I’m bf’ing and my metabolism seems a hint faster, so we’ll see how things go!
This week’s menu is:
Breakfast: – Butternut Squash Hash with Corned Beef and Fried Eggs & Banana, Coffee, Almond Butter Smoothie
Snack: Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding with Sliced Almonds and a Sliced Half Banana
Lunch: Paleo Chicken Fingers with Roasted Garlic Cauliflower
Dinner: Turkey Bubba Burgers with Side Salad
Dessert: Almond Butter “Blondie” with Chocolate Chips
I am definitely a banana and almonds girl, which is obviously reflected in what I’m eating this week, but what better way to get back on track than to eat what you love?
Tomorrow I’ll talk about my new fitness routine 🙂 Happy Monday!
