It’s Been 8 Years…

The paleo challenge has come to an end, and I couldn’t be more excited about my results. I feel absolutely amazing, and I have lost 14 pounds in just over 5 weeks. My energy levels are great, I feel strong, and have really been progressing in my workouts. Perfect timing before the open. It has…

Sober Bowl!

Super Bowl 50 was a couple of days ago and the Broncos won it! The big game happened during the paleo challenge. What a bummer! I had to miss out on tons of delicious food..and BEER! Not drinking beer while watching football is just un-American! What am I, Al Qaeda?! Even Peyton Manning loves beer…or…

Whoah, we’re half way there!

Howdy!!! Sooo it’s been a while. I miss you??….. It’s been a while since my last post, so I’m going to play a little bit of catch up. Life has kept me busy, but I am still 100% on my points. Wooo!! Week Two – 1/18-1/24 Not gonna lie, the second week was pretty rough…

It’s a Slow Road

I tried to get out of bed to work out this morning, but that didn’t happen. I woke up feeling exhausted, so I decided to sleep in. I was pretty tired throughout the first half of the day, but started to feel better throughout the afternoon. I got a lot of stuff done throughout the…

Short Week Started off Right

I got lots of sleep last night and woke up feeling fresh. Started the day off with a small breakfast and coffee then hit the gym. After getting warmed up, I had lots of energy and was ready to take on the workout. The strength portion of the workout went really well. I feel like…

Free Breadsticks and Jello Shots

It’s been a while since my last post, but I’m just over a week in and am still cheat free! Don’t believe it, check out my food log. Boooyah!! Overall, I definitely have had ups and downs throughout this thing so far. I’ve struggled with cravings for cake, but the biggest thing that has gotten…

Feeling Good – Day 4

Today I woke up naturally before my alarm went off and I felt great! I was pretty excited to do the workout, so that helped me get motivated. I had my usual breakfast then hit the gym at 8. The workout was pretty darn good. It was a long burner with some heavy deadlifts. I…

Skipping breakfast was a bad choice

I slept way too much last night. I was in bed for over 10 hours and kept snoozing my alarms. Instead of getting up to eat breakfast like I should have, I stayed in bed until the last possible minute. On my way to the office, I was still half asleep and driving on auto-pilot….

Cake!!! – Day Two

Getting out of bed was a struggle today. I must’ve woke up in the middle of a REM cycle, because I was out of it. Somehow, I managed to drag my ass out of bed to hit the gym by 8:00. Before hitting the gym, I had a quick breakfast and brought my coffee to…

Getting Started

Today I started a six week paleo/primal/zone challenge alongside other members of my gym. Why? I chose to join this challenge, because I have been eating somewhat unhealthy for a while, so I decided it was time to clean up my act a bit. I have tried out a primal diet a few times. The…
