This is it, this is really it!  I have planned and shopped, meditated and studied, and I have butterflies in my stomach knowing this is the start of a LIFESTYLE CHANGE.  I may not eat the Paleo diet more than the 30 days, but I do know that I will eat healthy, exercise, and take care of myself.  I feel the power within and it is SO exciting!

I put the glass by my bed full of ice the night before so I could drink 10 oz. of water before I even got out of bed.  It was still pretty cold, but wow, I think I may need to use the restroom first, THEN drink the first water of the day:)  I am old...but I've still got it!  (just not the bladder part).

I did 15 calf raises with my toes pointed out, then pointed in then straight.  I got a batch of fresh peaches cut and frozen for yummy snacks and shakes later when the days turn cold.  I got laundry done then had 8 more ounces of water.

I then made my delicious breakfast.  I prepared for the week by cooking up some turkey italian sausage.  It is in a container in the fridge ready to add to simple meals.

I sautéed 1/2 of a red pepper and some white onion with fresh basil from the garden and a new little zucchini and spinach from the garden as well in a bit of olive oil...
I then put 2 eggs and some of the cooked sausage in for an amazingly delicious breakfast...YUM!
I then drank 8 more ounces of water and headed out to work.

I filled my cup at work with water and sipped until lunch another 16 ounces.  The bathroom is clear down the hall, so I walk briskly every time I head down there!

Lunch:  I packed tuna with fresh garden cherry tomatoes, 1/2 of an avocado, some chopped red bell pepper and a lemon to squeeze all over it.  easy and very good.  I like to mix the avocado in with the tuna and use the red pepper chunks to dip into it like chips:)

After work I drank 8 more ounces of water, then sautéed up some white onion, a little more red pepper because I love the color and the nutrients, squeezed a touch of lemon and put some fresh lemon thyme in for a kick of flavor.  This was a quick sauté and this is supposed to be a cleansing dish.  I'm all for that.  I grilled up some chicken breast with cajun seasoning, grilled lemon to squeeze on and served with parsley and fresh garden tomatoes.  YUMMY!

We then headed out to watch Jocelyn play ball against her cousin Jayde's team. 

 It was SO MUCH fun and I actually feel great.  I have a bit of a headache, but I am sure I am detoxing.

The killer was coming home to do this work-out
If I would have known how hard it was, I would have done it in the morning, but guess what?  I tried my hardest, was almost in tears and MADE IT THROUGH with a few modifications.

I downed 16 more ounces of water and headed to bed after rinsing off with a big smile because I am proud of myself.

What a great first day of the rest of my life...Go FIGHT WIN!
