Day 10 and I feel noticeably more energetic when I wake up. I think partly it’s because the dinner last night was so satisfying. It really gave me a boost, and helped take me away from the what-kind-of-bread-can-I-eat thoughts that have been with me, pretty constantly, since I started this challenge.
Another thing that played a role in my mood, no doubt, was another slight drop in weight. 1 whole pound less, so 3 pounds lighter in 10 days. How ironic is that, when I wasn’t even looking to lose any weight? I think about all those times over the years I desperately wanted to lose some weight, just a couple of pounds. If only I had realized it could be done effortlessly, as if by magic, by giving up grains. Very cool.
I figure I’m on a roll, so today I’m starting my quest to find a good Paleo bread recipe. I’m hoping this isn’t an oxymoron. It’s been over a week of either eggs or fruit for breakfast, and while the (very much needed) break in my breakfast routine is refreshing, there must be a way to work some toast in with my morning americano. Right?
