all new, all fresh

with 2 comments

so i’m in the middle of a phase where i’m just changing a bunch of things.  out with the old, in with the new.  here are some of the things:

– started paleo

– new iphone (my first smartphone ever!  can you believe i haven’t renewed my contract in 9 years?  9 YEARS?!?!?)

– new job opportunities (i can expand on that one at a later time)

– new jobs

– new motivation

i mean, that’s a lot of stuff.  especially for a guy who likes things to stay consistent.  so far, it’s been a good feeling doing these new things.  i really do feel like  new person.  i especially can’t believe what i’ve been missing out on without a smart phone.  i now know how people can spend so much time on their phone.  i never understood that.

so here’s to new things.  a new journey.  and hopefully new results.

paleo roadtrip

with 2 comments

don’t worry, my blog is not going all nutritional.  that’s what this blog is for.  this is a one-entry thing (unless something cool happens)

recently i have started the paleo lifestyle.  it was tough to start, but it is getting easier as time goes on.  if you’re unfamiliar with paleo, click here.  if you’re too lazy, it’s essentially called the “caveman diet.”  only natural foods like meats, nuts, veggies, and fruits.  nothing processed.  it’s been going well so far.  i’ve lost 16 pounds and still losing 🙂

i’m currently in raleigh, nc for  a wedding.  one of my worries was how i was going to make the 6.5 hour drive without stopping for fast food or snacks.   here’s how i made it with no trouble at all:

i packed my own lunch – steamed broccoli, grilled zucchini, steamed chicken, some baked tofu

and some snacks – hard boiled eggs,

and these delicious friends from trader joes:

 

with their help, i made it the whole trip without stopping for fast food (although i could so go for some qdoba or bojangles).

my next challenge is how to make it through a wedding weekend going paleo (and then another wedding weekend next week).

then my next challenge will be how to make the trip back to atlanta without having prepared food before hand.  maybe i’ll just snack it until i get home.
