Today's Weigh-In: 208.8

So, my Paleo challenge is just about half-way done. I got pretty sick last week with the flu, but I ended up losing a big chunk of weight. Still nursing a cough, but I'm easing back into working out this week and hope to be back (or close) to full speed next week. I haven't been 100% strict during the challenge, but pretty dang close, and I think that's helping with my weight loss.

I started a new job this week. In the past this would be something that would probably cause me to change my eating habits for the worse, but I've been pretty solid. We have a big file cabinet full of treats (candy bars, chips, cookies, nuts, etc.) but I've been sticking to only helping myself to some of the cashews and beef jerky. The other stuff just doesn't even tempt me any more (except for snickers, those are a weakness). I'm still rocking homemade lunches on most days, and just eating healthy if I do go out. It just took a change in mindset that going out doesn't necessarily mean you get to eat crap. So I eschew frech fries and soda, and get my burgers wrapped in lettuce, or my Chipotle done as a burrito bowl, or just stick with meat and veggies as much as possible. It's not hard, and I'm liking the results.
