I’m starting today. May 9, 2012. Actually, I’ll start the eating part tomorrow. Today is preparation day. I stopped by the grocery store after this morning’s CrossFit workout and picked up a ton of veggies and meat. “Me now eat like Caveman.” Now I have to clear the cupboards (via my mouth) of all treats.
My thoughts about giving Paleo (or a version of it) a shot again are this:
Observation #1: Cavemen ate all their food cooked over an open fire (grill) and now that it’s practically summer, we (Coy) will be grilling every night. Conclusion: Paleo means less cooking for me!
Observation #2: If we actually eat like cavemen, we will be using our hands more often. (Think chicken legs and wings.) Conclusion: Paleo means less dishes for me!
Observation #3: The kids always hang outside with daddy when he grills. Conclusion: Paleo means I can catch up with the Housewives of Orange County while Coy cooks AND watches the kids at the same time!
Observation #4: Preparing tons of meat and veggies everyday requires lots of washing, peeling and chopping. Conclusion: Paleo means my fingers and wrists will be so skinny AND Coy will most likely have to buy me new jewelry because of it.
I love clean out the fridge of junk food the day before I start a diet days. Yummy. You want to know what’s different about this diet this time? Well, I’m being crazy and starting a diet on a THURSDAY! I mean, who does that? I’ll probably be wildly successful and will have to write a book about why you should never start a diet on a Monday. My book list is getting longer!
