Back on the wagon...
WOW! Regionals was incredible! So great that the week after I completely feel off the paleo/zone wagon. It was pretty bad. All of my meals were fine, small and healthy. I just added so much extra shit it was unbelievable. Margaritas....chips/salsa....2 tons of beef jerky...burgers and fries....ugh..i feel nasty even typing it right now.
WELL---its over. I am back on the wagon and only 3 days into STRICT paleo/zone I feel great. We have our friends staying with us right now. Its a true torture test to watch them eat chips and salsa with margaritas...and just sit there with my mouth watering while I choke down wonderful broccoli and a peach. However, the next morning when I am headed to the gym at 545 their butts are sleeping I just smile as I go knock out a great workout.
Even though I was pretty bad for a week or so, I did keep myself honest and write down everything that I consumed. All I have to do is go back and look in my log and just be disgusted with myself for 30 seconds...and the craving for extra sugar is gone! Is that weird? I don't care if it is. In the last three months I have surprised myself everyday at the gym. If it works, it works. No matter how silly or weird I have to be.
So I will keep weighing my protein...even with the laughs behind my back as I do it. Please...its swimsuit season...and I have work to do. We will see who is laughing at the river next month!! ( Evil laugh )
