Paleo Trek: The Next Generation
Real Food: The Final Frontier
These are the musings of the CrossFitter M^2 and her 30 Day Paleo Challenge: to explore strange new recipes that do not include wheat, legumes, dairy, sugars and/or processed foods.
To seek out new opportunities to learn about her body, eat clean/train dirty, understand a food processor, and boldly go where she has never gone before: her very own kitchen

I smell the donuts that they brought in this morning. Dunkin’ Donuts. The Walgreens of the sugar set, i.e. one on every corner. They brought them for a work meet and greet, and they smell DIVINE. Knowing that donuts (Glazed!! Pumpkin!! Chocolate Glazed!!!) was the meal of choice this morning, I pre-emptively ate my sweet potato hash browns and red bell pepper, sausage and bacon egg frittata; with a side of tea (no sugar, no honey, just lemon).
It worked! I smelled it, but was not tempted to eat it. After only four days on Paleo, I already see and feel a difference in my body and clothes. My belly fat, though not excessive, seems less; abs are making an appearance. My waist, already small, seems to be getting smaller; at least judging by my belt and pants.
I’ve been in this situation before; on the precipice of the body that I know that I can have and I’ve frittered it away on pepperoni pizza and chocolate cake. II want to ride this train to the end, but I have a baby shower to go to this weekend.
Will I be able to resist frosted cakes and pizza?
