On death row…

Week 1: Weekly Update

It’s been 1 week since I started this journey. Here’s an update…

My weight has dropped from 213 to 209. Which is great for a week :).

My energy level/mood has drastically improved.

For some reason the sinus troubles that have plagued me for quite some long time have mostly gone away. I am, at this point, attributing this to the removal of gluten from my diet.

I ended my 2nd intermittent fast this morning. It was a bit more difficult this time. It was not hunger pangs so much as I could feel my blood sugar drop at certain points in the day. When this happened I got tired and irritated. I think this is because my body is so used to an eating schedule and it produces insulin at those times. Today I woke up feeling great. I wasn’t hungry. I knocked out my workout and had a great breakfast.

I discovered I am terrible at creating paleo waffles or crepes.

Lastly, it has been 1 month since my last drink of alcohol. I am not sure I’ll ever go back to drinking as much as I used to.
