Green Smoothy Is Back!
I woke up sleepy, feeling groggy this morning. Work and life stress have been getting to me this week. I miss my old routine of working out early in the morning–it seems to help me manage my stress better and I sleep better. I hope to reset things next week!
On the bright side my eating all week has pretty much been aligned with my version of Primal/Paleo. I broke my fast at around 12:30pm with bacon, eggs, a potato and used my Vitamix to whip up an amazing green smoothy. Late dinner included leftover Italian beef made into a Paleo sandwich using portobello mushroom caps for “bread,” with buttered broccoli and a baked potato. The Vitamix got used again to make a strawberry smoothy for dessert. Seems like my body craved carbohydrate, probably due to a decent workout from 7:30pm until 9:00pm. My estimated carb intake was right at 200g, but I’d be willing to bet my body stayed in a ketogenic state (due to the weight lifting and good quality of the carbs)–I can’t wait to get my new Ketonix Sport so I can resume my daily tests!
The weekend is rapidly approaching, yay! As always…
Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
