WOW! I made it half way! Fricken awesome.

What’s super cool about this point in the strict Paleo March, Whole 30, whatever, is that I have SLAYED THE SUGAR DRAGON!!!

A DRAGON OF SUGAR!

It’s a dragon… literally made of sugar. And yes, I slayed it!

I have to admit, I was having some on and off sweets/carb cravings over the past 2 weeks. It doesn’t help that Easter is on the way and there’s chocolate bunnies and eggs left right and center BUT I was often having 2 servings of fruit a day, a treat after dinner (Almond butter banana cups, coconut + cocoa macaroons, applesauce etc). I do love my sweets, but I’m at a point right now where I don’t crave them AND don’t feel deprived.

It’s an accomplishment I think! Better to allow myself those types of treats once in a while rather than most evenings :). There’s a 21 Day Sugar Detox a lot of Paleo minded folks tackle too if you want to check that out, some awesome recipes there too!

Day 14 (Thursday)

Breakfast: Chorizo Fritatta

Lunch: Leftover Butter Chicken

Dinner: Beef and veggie soup, half a pork chop

Day 15 (Friday)

Breakfast: Little piece of Chorizo Fritatta, hard boiled egg + coffee with coconut milk

*I have coffee with coconut milk most days, however today I put a pretty healthy dose coconut milk in my mug today, more than usual, so I’m counting it as part of brekky*

Lunch: Leftover Butter Chicken

Snack: Veggie plate (cauliflower, avocado, carrots, broccoli) Pepperoni stick, handful of nuts.

Also had a Vanilla Rooibos Tea from Starbucks today when Future Husband and I went to visit an old friend from college (BCIT). It has this natural sweetness to it, mmmm I love it! I’m going to pick some vanilla rooibos tea up from Superstore next time I shop, hopefully it will have a similar flavor.

Dinner; Leftover Italian Chicken, Roasted Asparagus with Beets and Leeks!

Roasted Asparagus etc

My roasted veggies over the leftover Italian Chicken.

Halfway Mark reflections:

I am feeling good! I feel a little silly that I’ve strayed away from Robb’s set out “PLAN”, but this is my path to a Paleo March! I have been using his recipes just in different order, and often modified to my tastes, what’s on hand, etc. This is what real life is about anyway! You don’t always have someone to lay out what you should eat, you need to figure a lot out on your own.

Successes: Drinking more water, No Sweets, VERY limited fruit, Varied Breakfasts

Things to Work On: Watch how many nuts I eat, making sure my meals are big enough

It is very tempting to jump on the scale or measure myself but I won’t! I’m confident there will be some good changes at the end of the month :)

Tomorrow will be interesting since I’m eating out a bit, I will let you know how it turns out.
