Final Day!

Final Day!

Post  Patti on Thu Mar 31, 2011 11:54 am

Wow, I can't believe we are at the final day. It seems a little anti-climactic unless of course you were planning a big binge on ice cream cake...no names mentioned here!

I thought it would be interesting to see what people think are their Top 5 Lessons Learned while on the challenge so I will kick it off

1. Lots of variety is key
2. Flavour matters
3. Paleo muffins do not consititue a nutrient dense meal
4. Not weighing myself every week was good for my psyche
5. Popeye is easily distracted with good food!

Usual lemon water with fish oil chaser

Breakfast: Turkey and egg frittata, avocado, nuts
Snack: 2 paleo muffins
Lunch: Ground bison, blueberries, salad, nuts
Snack: Salmon, peppers, oliveoil
Supper: Seafood salad, avocado,

It seems kinda bizzare that I won't be making time in my day to contiue posting my meals. Plus reading about what everyone is eating was fun too.

Looking forward to celebrating on Saturday.

Good morning Paleo friends !!!


This is the last day and your last chance to be really nice to me now, as we all know I'm the one deciding the winner, I will forward anyone my "wish list", and my home address for deliveries since i wont be at the gym tonight to pick up my gifts or food. (this is not a joke!!!) ha...

No but seriously really proud of you all for staying on this, all your great input and recipes, and all the people that have stayed on this, I can defiantly see and have talk to many of you,that you feel better, have lost weight and performance has gone up. Makes me HAPPPPPPPY !!!
Hopefully many of you continue eating this way as it's not a diet its a healthy way to eat and live. Good job COP paleo crew !!! It's going to be hard to choose just 1 winner as you all have defiantly earned it.

3 lesson and goals onward

1. Going to still eat like this 95% of the time, with a few cheats here and there
2. Always have food on me
3. I love cooking with coconut milk


Breakfast: 1 chicken sausage/ 1 black coffee
snack: salmon pepperoni/ coconut shake- with straw/1/2 banana/ cinnamon/super greens powder
Lunch- going to be a salmon salad.
Snack-apple/avocado
Dinner- Bison/yams/salad



I will check on you all later Very Happy

Good afternoon COP peeps,

30 days has gone by extremely fast!
One observation I have re: Paleo challenge is that our gym seems more connected and cohesive creating an awesome vibe!! and I'm not talking about the use of groove shark for the WOD tunes. LOL Some days there was more talk about what recipes people were trying versus the upcoming workout. I thought that was really cool! Or as my "A Dawg" (you know who you are right Alexi) would say that is really sic!!! Enough jabber.... here is the eats!

Morning drink - f.oil, lemon water
Breakfast: Turkey and egg frittata, avocado, nuts, green tea, apple
Snack: porkloin, olive oil, apple
Lunch- sweet potato, bison, roasted cauliflower, pesto
Snack-

Much Luv C.O.P .
Very pleased with everyone's will power, and participation level.cheers

Lessons learned...
1. Eating healthy is not hard or inconvenient. (Just an excuse)
2. Home cooked meals are much tastier.
3. Have much more cooking ideas in my tool box.
4. Learned how to streamline food prep.
5. Nutrition accountability.

I will continue to eat this way 90% of the time, and when/if the need arises to have a cheat meal, I will (balance is key).
Very pleased with my cortisol site dropping done from 12.4 to 9.2 and bodyweight didn't lower (slight increase in muscle mass, decrease in bodyfat), performance feels way better, recovery is better.... not bad for 30 days.

That went fast! Yowza! Things I learned:
a) Its pretty easy. There were a few things I missed like wine but overall I didn't find I had big cravings
b) consistency is pretty key. I used to eat Paleo 5 days a week and then gorge on the weekend. It was like starting new every week and I didn't get the consistent energy levels like I did without the weekend binges. So I am going to have cheats once in a while but not go crazy (except of course this weekend:)
c) It helps to have people to through it with!

Last meal post:
Breakie: no food in the house - 3 slices of back bacon, orange
Lunch: chili
Snack: more chili and orange
Dinner: talapia, asparagus (and a few sneaky bites of the ice cream I bought for tomorrow - teehee).

I've really enjoyed this challenge. It was the excuse I needed to get my eating back on track. I've also enjoyed posting here and reading what everyone else is eating. Great motivation and ideas for food.

Things learned and/or discovered:

1) I like paleo muffins better than real muffins cheers
2) Just because you're eating "healthy" food 100% doesn't mean you'll lose weight. Calories are calories.
3) I feel better with less fruit and nuts (only discovered this in the past 4 days)
4) I can make damn good paleo breaded chicken
5) I prefer putting in that extra time and effort to make a healthy meal at home than eat out because I feel better and I know it's better for me. Eating out has gone from 6 days a week pre-paleo challenge, to once a week.


Intermittent fasted until 4pm.

Broke fast at 4:30pm with 2 fritattas (cupcake size), and 1 muffin

6pm) small handful cashews (it had been 4 days since I had nuts!)

9pm) paleo breaded chicken, chard, collard, mushrooms, celery, sweet potato, poached pears in coconut milk.
