Rest Day!

So as I previously posted, I started a 30 day Paleo Challenge yesterday. I am on day 2, and I must say, I’m craving complex carbs like a mo’fo. I’m not sure if the craving is physical or mental. So far I’ve been good, although I did have 1 oz of dark chocolate after class/workout today. For the most part, I’ve been holding up pretty well on the diet aspect. A trip to Trader Joe’s on Sunday solved my grocery needs. I do see a problem with the Paleo diet at this point, and that is my total aversion to vegetables. The only Paleo vegetable that I actually can stand eating is salad, so I’ve been getting most of my carbs from fruit. I’ve read that this is not the best way to go if your primary concern is weight loss, but I really hate vegetables.

So, it looks like I have two choices: learn to eat vegetables or eat a ton of salad. 🙂 We’ll see how it goes.
