Paleo & CrossFit

Sup Homies. That was pretty gangsta of me huh? Fashizzle. That's the way I roll......

Speaking of rolls. I'm not allowed to eat them anymore. I'm on day 4 of a 30 day Paleo Challenge. I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to give my CrossFit workouts a "boost"so I went "Paleo" when I got back from Mississippi. I know alot of you try different diets and meal plans from time to time so I thought I would start adding this to my blog over the next few weeks. First of all Paleo is not that difficult to follow. I'm not going to break down all the rules for you but here it is in it's most basic form.
Meats, vegetables, nuts & seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. Anyone can follow that right? Ummmm I dunno. I already miss sugar. I'll be honest. While I was on vacation I was drinking sweet tea LIKE A BOSS! I had so much I am pretty sure Mississippi ran out. I also loaded up on sweets. It was a big mistake. Once I cut the sugar out cold turkey, I spent two days with a headache so bad I wouldn't have sex with myself. The last 2 days have been better but I am REALLY sleepy from the change in carb intake. We'll see where everything ends up but I can tell you that after 4 days I don't feel bloated and I went all beast mode on my pillow last night. I haven't slept that good in a long time. I'm excited to see what changes can be made in my body and if it helps my performance at the gym.

More to come....
