Every morning I start with a Spark and a Meal Replacement Shake from AdvoCare. Now hardcore paleos will tell you this is not paleo, but AdvoCare keeps paleo easy and manageable for me. And so it is part of my paleo diet. And AdvoCare supplements are tested by Informed Choice so I know exactly what I'm putting into my body. If you are supplementing.....which everybody should be because soil/air pollution have stripped our food supply from most of the original nutritional value...FIND OUT WHERE YOUR SUPPLEMENT is being MADE. It's scary what's going on in the industry. This sums it up pretty nicely:
Sorry I got distracted.....I aim to keep my carbs under 50g a day. The shake has 25g of carbs and 25g predigested protein. I also happen to be on an Herbal Cleanse this week, we do one every 90days....It's like a oil change for the body. Plus we get to eat, unlike a lot of the weird cleanses that people do. Otherwise I would be taking my regular vitamin system called MNS ( metabolic nutrition system).
Omega3s that come from deep sea fish, hold the mercury thank you. Again, where is yours coming from?
Then I headed out to meet my lulu girls at College Park Yoga.
For lunch I made Stuffed Avocados I got the idea from Everyday Paleo an awesome source for paleo recipes.
Sam helped clean the tuna cans. Speaking a can tuna, I would have loved to have something with less mercury, like the Trader Joe's brand....but we don't have any here in the south. So for this time the regular canned tuna in water had to do.
Catalyst and Arginine and it was time for CrossFit Evolution. I power cleaned a personal record (PR) of 110lbs and did 9+9 in death by push-ups.
BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal): I completed my pregnancy 90% paleo (one cheat day per week) and continued to do CrossFit at least 3 times a week, Jere and I both blogged about our experiences and we co-partnered with Robb Wolf, Sarah from Everyday Paleo, Diane from Balanced Bites and Andrea from Crossfit Mom to publish the first Paleo/CrossFit Pregnancy reference book that's written in story format using our blog as an outline and their research as the reference portion.
Once I do more research and actually get pregnant I will reach out to each of these individuals. I will be the guinea pig to their research. They will provide the research and I will provide the story/testimony. Plus it will be really awesome to have the male perspective from Jere.
I will complete a pull-up 9 months pregnant:
