Paleo Challenge: Day #1

So, it's official today and what a wonderful day to start this whole endeavor. So, here are the official rules of the challenge.

5 pts each day for eating strict Paleo; 1 point for each meal you eat and 1 point for each snack you eat.

3 pts each day you work out at Crossfit - with a maximum of 12 pts a week.

2 pts each day for sleeping at least 8 hours at night.

The gym is closed today due to the Labor Day holiday, so I don't plan on doing a WOD today, but I do have plans to go four times this week. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday will be my workout days this week.

So, here's the rundown of today:

Last night I slept 8+ hours: 2 points

Breakfast: 1 point

3 oz Turkey Breast
1 cup Green Grapes
1/4 cup Red Raspberries

Lunch: 1 point

Lunch consisted of a salad so yummy that it didn't need dressing. I started with a plate of romaine lesson and shredded carrots and then topped it with chicken breast, almonds, cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms and strawberries. It was truly beautiful and if I posted pictures on my blog, it would be worthy.

Snack #1: 1 point

1 large peach
A small handful of Almonds

Dinner: 1 point

About a cup of Spaghetti Squash topped with a stir fry. The stir fry consisted of a little olive oil, chicken breast, red peppers and sliced mushrooms.
1 cup Papaya

Snack #2: 1 point

Small handful of Pecans
Two slices Turkey Deli Meat
3/4 cup green grapes

Point total for today: 7 pts.
