Week five of the Paleo lifestyle is in the books! I really am starting to wonder why I did not follow this years ago. Feeling more energy, not as hungry and loving the food! I did decide not measure this week and instead, will begin checking every two weeks. As far as my training this week, I kept the same schedule but did some sprints on Wednesday. This was MUCH more painful than I thought. That pain in my back radiated when I ran, getting me to purchase a Groupon for three sessions of Cryotherapy. I’ve heard good things about it and figured the $40 was worth the try. As of today, I have gone twice but still have the pain. Fairly confident the third won’t make a huge impact but I will be going again this week and then a doctor.
So for the results…I am up 1.3 pounds. What the heck!! I was very tempted to measure just to check but I can tell my clothes are a litlle looser so I am attributing the higher number to a couple things. First, my wife and I went out to a GREAT steak dinner for her birthday the night before and shared a Creme Brulee for dessert. We DID manage to avoid bread and weren’t even tempted. But I have a feeling my large steak, the wine, bacon wrapped shrimp and dessert is one of the culprits. The other thing may be muscle weight. i have been staying on schedule with my workouts and have gone a little heavier on the weights as well. So, no discouragement in the weight gain and looking forward to next weeks weigh in.
