I'm blogging about yesterday late because yesterday was one of those days where there simply wasn't a spare minute to breath, let alone blog. But I have some important things to share, so I didn't want to skip it altogether.
First, tada! Before pictures. Granted they were taken at the end of day three before I left for yoga, but close enough. I did not retouch or do anything to these photos. That's me as I am today.
Second, the hangover hit. When I woke up in the morning I had a wicked headache -- the kind that wraps your whole skull in a wad of cotton and then pushes from the inside out. I can only assume this is the carb detox or "carb flu" I've been warned about. I am happy to report, however, that once I ate my breakfast and drank my coffee and noon rolled around, the headache was mostly gone and I did feel more human.
Third, I discovered my new favorite shrimp recipe -- Ginger Lime Grilled Shrimp. Even if you're not following a Paleo diet, this is a delicious one to introduce into your repertoire Fresh lime juice, ginger, garlic, cilantro, seasoning, and olive oil. What's not to love?
Lunch - scrumptious spinach salad topped with fresh cut veggies and 2 hard-boiled eggs lightly dressed with 1/2 a lemon and 1/2 a tablespoon of olive oil, 1/2 a grapefruit
Dinner - Ginger Lime Grilled Shrimp paired with sautéed garlic lemon green beans
Yesterday I definitely felt like my appetite was better during meals, which hopefully means I'm starting to adjust to eating differently.
