First week post Paleo-challenge food log

I finished the Paleo challenge food log Saturday and ate crap on Sat night and Sunday. Now I'm getting back on the wagon. I want to knock out 10 more lbs before I try to start just maintaining. I got up this morning and was saying to myself, as I ate breakfast "5 slices of salami, 3 tsp of almond butter..." and wondering if I was ahead or behind on calories for the day.  So I'm going to try to keep doing my food log.

Monday, 10/29
7am mobility with Steve
Breakfast - 5 slices of summer sausage, 3 tsp of almond butter
Lunch - spinach and mixed greens salad with sweet potato, feta, onions, peppers, herb vinaigrette and 4oz steelhead salmon
Snack - 12 almonds
Dinner - chicken curry made with curry sauce from a bottle. The main ingredient in the sauce was coconut milk which made it about 80% fat (yay!)
Also had some salad with goat cheese.

After dinner, went to personal training with Steve. Started out by rolling my pecs with a lax ball but I'm not too good at it. We spent the rest of the time doing snatch-grip deadlifts, bent over rows and butterfly sit-ups. The first two were to strengthen my mid-back, and the sit ups were to isolate the abs and take the hip flexors out of the exercise.
I was going to stay for Steve's 8:00 class but between the pt and the mobility class this morning I was pretty wiped out.

Tuesday, 10/30
Woke up sore this morning and decided I'd take the morning off of crossfit. I rolled my lats for 10-15 minutes and did some thoracic extension and rotation exercises. Made a]three egg omelet/scramble this morning with 1/2 an onion, 1/2 a pepper, and some salsa. It was cooked in Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
Strangely, I was only able to finish half of it. I guess it's good if my body doesn't need so much fuel.

Lunch was steak fajitas with veggies and guac, hold the tortillas, beans, rice, and dairy.
Dinner - 5 Deviled eggs, 2tsp almond butter and 2 oz beef jerky

Wednesday, 10/31

Caught a cold or something, so skipped crossfit today. Headed for the Paleo Potluck tonight.
Paleo potluck - several deviled eggs, a leg of chicken, some kale chips, goat cheese, and a few bites of chicken sausage
Unfortunately, I didn't win the Paleo challenge this year, but on the other hand, I did lose 15 lbs so that's a nice consolation.
