30 Day Paleo Challenge: Week 1

The first week was not as hard as I thought it would be - other than having to constantly think and plan ahead. I had one bad experience trying to eat lunch out with a co-worker where I had to become that person who asks the ingredients in everything and requests annoying substitutions. Dave, on the other hand, had serious sugar withdrawl and ate a lot of fruit to compensate. It seemed like every time I saw him he had an orange in his hands.

We have both found that being at work is the biggest challenge. Dave is exposed to a constant parade of baked goods and Tim Horton's coffee at the hospital. I tend to eat out often with co-workers and our office decided to hold a impromptu Margarita party on the patio on Friday to celebrate the first warm weather (and the manager's being away at the AGM in Victoria). It is hard to stick to your guns and say 'no' when everyone around you is indulging in tempting treats! Tonight will be another test as we are destined for a going-away party.
