Is Garden of Life’s Raw Meal considered Paleo?

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve brought this to work.

I wonder if its Paleo?

0512-3

It’s gluten-free and dairy-free – should be Paleo? The ingredients they use are all sprouted grains and vegetables. Sprouted grains means the grains have evolved into vegetables isn’t it? I did some research online and Mark’s Daily AppleΒ tells me that they shouldn’t be any problem.

Alright then! I had a scoop of this with almond milk plus a banana at 9am when i reached office and i am still full (it’s 11am now). Great πŸ™‚ I badly need to get back to Paleo and today shall be the day! Lunch will be the same thing as well, but i will bring along 2 hard boiled eggs to my driving lesson later.

I am sleepy man. Didnt have a good sleep 😦 need my coffee fix later if not i’ll drive badly lol.

Oh and i am wearing new heels today! Will review them soon πŸ™‚

I feel GOOD (ta da ta da ta da da)

I just finished my lunch – B U R P.

lunch2

I finished every single bit of it, including the salmon and veg juice/ gravy. Brussel sprouts are so nice and sweet!

and this was my breakfast!

breakfast2

i think my food is beginning to look nicer eh? More colourful hahaha. So what’s the plan for tomorrow’s Paleo meals?

According to the plan i made, breakfast is diced red bell pepper omelette (what a freaking mouthful) for breakfast, and stir-fry chicken with celery and brussel sprouts for lunch. maybe I’ll add some mushrooms to the chicken for contrast of colours? Heehee.

And, does red bell pepper go well with eggs? I will find out and let u know LOL. i think it will look funny haha. Maybe add some prawns? πŸ˜›

My weight has remained constant at 57.6kg for the past 3 days, despite the fact that I’ve been eating more. I wonder if it’s intending to spring a nasty surprise on me tomorrow. Let’s hope today’s body combat will help a bit. I wore my new shoes to body combat today. It really gave me more stability during the lunges (or did the past few days’ regular squats help in that too?) compared to the Reebok shoes I normally wear. But this new pair is more spacious hence it gives the feeling that its quite loose. think i need some time getting used to it. Tomorrow I’ll be doing Elliptical Interval Training – argh i don’t really like it but i think the more i don’t like it, the better results it give!

 

Paleo Diet Day 1

I’ve officially started πŸ™‚

I took a quick walk to NTUC to get my breakfast before work.

Del Cabo USDA Organic Cherry Tomatoes! Not my favourite, but it’ll have to do. I had about half a box this morning, the other half shall be tomorrow’s breakfast.

I’m surprised that tomatoes are super low in calories! 6 of them – about 30 calories? And I was about to burst already!

bf2

Don’t they just look AWESOME! REAL FOOD PEOPLE!

I had the tomatoes at about 930am and at 12pm, I was hungry. haha. Since I wasn’t going for gym today (I had to make a phone call during lunch), I decided to heat up my lunch!

steamer1

I lugged this device to work today, in the pouring rain. It’s a portable steamer!

and my Paleo lunch was ready in 15minutes πŸ™‚ piping hot. I had this at abt 1230pm. YUMMY. and I was full after this – chicken breast, prawns, mushrooms and an egg. Seasonings added to my chicken were a few dashes of Thai fish sauce and a generous spill of pepper πŸ™‚ and it’s super nice. Wanted to add dark soya sauce to my egg but nah, less salt is good!

So I made a shopping list of food to buy this Saturday morning at NTUC – for my next week’s meals. I need healthy snacks in my office!

YAY. I am starting to love preparing my meals πŸ™‚

Tonight I will be preparing prawn omelette and stir-fried mushrooms & carrots for tomorrow’s lunch. Pics will be up tonight!

Just in time for Body Combat

AΒ long search request came in before lunch and I managed to clear it at 1250pm. I was thinking – cannot make it for body combat liao…usually attendance is quite good for body combat so i was quite sad that i couldnt make it today.

When i reached the gym, i went to the registration form and there were only maybe 12 names, much to my glee!! I quickly scribbled my name down and went to change.

So so glad i went, coz today’s class was INTENSE! it was a replacement instructor and he just went on and on and on. Great 45min spent!! And tomorrow is RPM cycling class – looking forward πŸ™‚

Yesterday was a tiring day – and it made me really feel like binging. I had granola with low fat milk for breakfast, 3 tiny bananas for lunch and granola again for dinner at 530pm. At about 9pm, i was already thinking what I should snack on..

and i ended up eating a big piece of seaweed – it’s only 13 calories….

This morning I weighed myself.

weight3

Cool – i am back to 59.1 πŸ™‚ So glad I did not take out those spicy fish sticks to munch on.. :X

I’ve decided to have wholemeal bread for this week, coz my emmental cheese slices are still in the fridge untouched! Bought a loaf of gardenia wholemeal bread (its made of 50% wholemeal flour though zzz) – cheap and nice with the cheese!

Start of a new CLEAN week!

Being in office is good coz I get to have a more predictable and structured day in terms of diet and exercise.

I just had my Raw Meal Protein Shake. Finally finishing my Vanilla powder, will be opening my second andΒ last tin (unflavoured)Β very soon yay! After I finish the second tin (God knows when, it’s such a gigantic tin) i will stick to Naturade.

rawmeal1

I put in 350ml rice milk (a bit more today coz this will be my only carbo intake for the day) and 1.5 scoops of powder (instead of the recommended 2) coz Raw Meal powder turns gooey very quickly after i mix it 😦 I drank it at 11am and my next protein shake (Naturade) will be after my body combat class at 2 plus pm.

This week onwards, my driving lessons will be only once a week, so it means for this week, I will be in office from Mon to Thur i.e. I am able to go gym 4 days!Β I will eat my muesli (need carbo for gym workouts!) at about 11am, then protein shake at 3pm. Wonder if it will help me achieve 58kg by friday?

weight2

didn’t lose much over the weekend coz it WAS THE WEEKEND. bleah..Β  BUTTTT being a brand new week today onwards, I shall BUCK UP and FIGHT!! *bloodcurdling pirate scream*

JUST 1.5 more kg TO 58KG!!!!!!

Short Friday for me! :)

Measurement yesterday: 63.5kg.
Measurement today : 63.0kg.

Today is going to be challenging. We are celebrating Al’s birthday tonight at Din Tai Fung and hence I’ll be eating a rather huge dinner. So I am wondering if I should skip lunch so as not to add to the calories??

If I skip, I may over-eat during dinner.. But knowing me, whether I feel hungry (if I have a lunch) or over-hungry (if I skip lunch), I will eat the same amount during dinner.. So I think I will skip lunch, so I don’t add to the daily amount of calories. I hope tomorrow’s measurement will be kind to me.. :S

I will be spending 2 hours at the driving centre today from 2-4pm, doing trial online tests for Final Theory. And next Friday is the actual test – I need all of your prayers badly!!

Can’t wait to start practical lessons >:)

So, despite my sore achy body, i went gym during lunch. Just got back actually.. and I worked out for 40 min! New record yay!

I am actually starting to find it not so dreadful. Jus absent-mindedly step on and on and on lor. Time seems to pass by faster too heehee. Weight loss aside, exercise is good for health too. *pats me own back*
