Mac family Posted August 22, 2014 Share Posted August 22, 2014 I know white potatoes are allowed now. But why do they feel so wrong?? I'm on day 5 and I've had some kind of potato every day but one. Part of that reason is because of my husband, who is a meat and potatoes guy and begrudgingly participating in this program to support me, so I want to cook things he likes. I'm also pretty active chasing around a toddler and exercising 4 times a week, plus long walks with the dog 2-3 times a week. Today I felt great. Not too hungry, energy is up. Meal 1- sweet potato hash with 2 fried eggs and a half a cup of a compliant green smoothie (I know you're not supposed to do do smoothies, but at least this one was packed with spinach and other green goodness) Coffee with coconut milk Meal 2- leftover roast beef + 2 turkey meatballs, more potato hash, sautéed spinach in EVOO and a handful of cherries Rooibos unsweetened strawberry lemonade iced tea with frozen strawberries 4pm snack- monkey salad Meal 3- (shared with husband) Nom nom Paleo's Cracklin' chicken with roasted potatoes, carrots, and a mixed greens salad I wore my workout clothes all day but never made it to the gym. I'll burn extra calories tomorrow to try to make up for it. Should I feel guilty about all those delicious potatoes?? And oh man, that chicken was outstanding! http://nomnompaleo.com/post/74180911762/cracklin-chicken I guess I should mention- I'm about 5 pounds overweight. I have 10 pounds to lose to get to pre-baby weight and 15-20 to get to my goal weight. I'm hoping this program will help me jump start healthier eating habits and kick my snacking/sugar cravings.
