Day 2: It's Great!

I'd like to report that it's the end of Day 2 and it's going great!  I am eating a lot of food (thanks veggies) and I am pretty full all the time, despite aiming for 1200 calories.  After this post, I'm going to have an evening snack of a satsuma while I drink a pot of tea.

Today was upper body day.  I hate getting spaghetti arms at the gym, but that happened.  lol   I don't feel like I over did it.  I just haven't done all of those exercises, all at once, for a while.  I am looking forward to my day off tomorrow and the next two days of working out.

Food-wise, I put on a beef-pumpkin chili this morning.  I make a pretty fierce no-bean chili.  I think it's one of my top favorite paleo meals.  You can find a few versions of the recipe under the RECIPES tab, up top.

For anyone who is curious as to my personal macros: 120g Protein, 40g Fat, 90g Carbs.

I'm keeping my carbs restricted to grain-free, potato-free, legume-free, low sugar/low starch fruits and veggies.  Yikes, right?!  My body does not like any kind of potato (even sweet potato) - so I'm okay with that.  No grains?  I hate it when people ask if that means "gluten free".  No.  It means "no fucking grains" and includes: wheat, barley, corn, rice, quinoa, and all the other grains of the world.  I also am not supposed to eat legumes, such as: peanuts, all beans, soy, lentils, and peas.  For the most part I'm cool with it, but I tend to cheat when it comes to Mexican restaurants.
