So we’ve made it to day 4. I don’t know about you, but I’m kinda sore today. Not sore bad, but sore like my muscles actually got used yesterday. I feel FANTASTIC!
Today’s challenges are really neat and #1 is something that I’ve kind of learned to do since becoming a Paleo life-styler. I don’t eat at normal “intervals” during the day anymore, I eat when the hunger strikes. Some days that means all day long. Others that means just breakfast and dinner. It’s absolutely fantastic to not feel “pressure” to eat at noon just because the rest of the world eats lunch at that time.
So what are today’s challenges?
- Honor Hunger: Don’t eat just because the clock tells you you have to eat. Eat when hunger guides you. Eat until you’re full, not until all of the food on your plate is gone. You will be amazed at the surge of energy eating for fuel, as opposed to eating for emotion, gives you.
- Exercise: Aerobic Adventure. Try something new today. Borrow your friend’s bike, take your dusty snow shoes out for a spin, go cross country skiing, or go surfing. Make sure your heart rate is in the 55-75 percent range, max. Make this an “extended” period of time. Extended can mean whatever you want it to mean; 30 minutes, an hour, or 2 hours. Whatever.
- Lifestyle: Stand-up work station. I’m blessed to not have a “normal” job so I am up and doing chores much of the day but if you work in an office environment, GET UP! Elevate your computer on boxes and do your work standing up. If you can, remove your shoes for the best effect.
How was Day 3 for you?
I surprised myself last night and got some really great weight training in. Like predicted, I could not do a single pull-up but I WAS able to do 100 sit-ups, 75 squats, 2 minutes of planks, and 30 push-ups.
I look forward to checking in with you tomorrow! I’ll have RESOLUTION : Paleo week 4 up later this afternoon. In the mean time, I have to go clean my house and fold some laundry. FUN!
