I have made a point to go and swim everyday at the Y. I'm up to 12 laps, if you are counting getting from one side to the other as a lap. If you are counting a lap as from one side to the other then back.. I'm up to 6 laps. I read that it's from one side to another.. so with that I happy I've gotten 12 laps in. Today I want to add four laps in with a kick board. To really work those leg muscles. It seems my arms and shoulders are getting a lot of the workout. I can also feel it in my core. After getting these laps down, I'll start integrating some basic floor routines before hitting the gym. It's been a LONG time since I have swam laps & I'm loving it!
My husband & I started our new diet. It's been an adjustment for sure. I haven't been as faithful as he has but I can already start to tell a difference in both of us. For the past week we have both been on the Paleo diet. It's so simple! Last night, because of dental work, I had a banana, strawberry's and pineapple.. it was so good and I was full! My husband had a lettuce tuna wrap and he said he was stuffed! He has lost almost 20 pounds this week and I have lost 5.
While I'm in a complete agreeance to rid my body of any whole grain items. I do believe I can stick to a meat, veggie and fruit diet for a while. I can't find any information where grains are bad for you, but according to the caveman diet .. agriculture didn't exist so neither did wheat. The bigger issue is removing the soda's and coffee from my diet that I've grown to love and depend on so much. Although I keep reading that coffee is good for you.. hopefully I can at least just take it with cream. Again I can stick to the meat, veggies, fruits and nuts. I think it will be more cost effective AND if we can shed a couple of pounds from it.. I'm happy.
Have you tried the Paleo diet? What did you think about it? What kind of results did you see?
