It begins . . .

Day 1 of the Paleo challenge is off to a good start!  I got up at 5:30 this morning, drank my water, and did the mini workout (calf raises).

After I got Liam off to football, I exercised.  I just did my slim and 6 DVD because I know it's a good work out for me (cardio and strength).  But I'm excited to hear what you guys think of the workouts she provided, if you do them.  And thanks for that GREAT list of workout options that you just posted Carrie!!!  I'm sure I'll try a few if them as well!

The breakfast was super yummy, and the perfect amount (I did the eggs, avocado, and bacon).  I'm curious to see how you like the breakfast quiches, Taryn.  I think it's a great thing to be able to grab on busy mornings.

I've already drank 32 oz of water, and it's not even 9am yet.  So I'm feeling really good about that, because I'm not the best at remembering to drink water throughout my day.

Anyway, I can't wait to hear your updates!  I'm really excited about this . . . And actually feel like it's going to be sustainable, and work for me!  I love that I can sneak my work out in after Liam leaves, and before I wake the other kids up!  That's been such an issue over the last several years . . . Just finding a consistent spot in my day for excercise.  I like the fact that I don't have to wake up to excercise . . . I'm waking up for something else, and can just slip it in there so nicely.   :)

I'm excited!

Love you all, and good luck!  :)

Oh . . . P. S.  I made the eggplant bruschetta last night and it was really yummy!  :)


  1. yea! good job kjirst! i'm eating the same breakfast right now and it is perfect. i'm excited to hear more updates from everyone!

  2. Wow! So impressed that you are able to wake up and stay up! I hope to get back to that. Right now I just let my kids wake me up :)
