Paleo Diet

My sister Sara and I decided to start a new diet together in April.  I'm so excited for it.

It's a no sugar, no dairy, no grains, beans, or alcohol diet.  Basically it is fruits, veggies, and protein (eggs, meats, etc).

We decided to do it together because I can't wait to lose my baby weight and she knows I need a partner.  She did this diet last spring for a few months and had awesome results so since I can't start working out for 6 weeks (to heal after the delivery of the baby...whenever that happens) then I figured the diet could start me off!

Since it is such a strict diet and since I will be breastfeeding I am going to have make some adjustments and have "free days" or a "free meal" every other day because I will need some dairy/grains while I am nursing.  I want to lose all my baby weight but I don't want the baby to suffer or not get all the nutrients he needs.

On my Pinterest board I have a whole bunch of Paleo recipes that look delicious and I am currently making a binder with all the recipes I want to try and make for us at home, and for my workout routine.  Even though I won't start going to the gym for 6 weeks, we will be walking every day as a family (love having a baby in the spring!) going to the park, doing sit ups and push ups.  The low impact stuff that isn't too hard on the body will do in the beginning.  But in May I will join the gym and make it a goal to go at least 3-4 times a week.  ***click on Pinterest board above to see my Paleo Recipes.

Plus, my mom and I like to power walk at a local high school track in the evenings.  We take turns with the kids and do laps while the other person watches the kids.  My kids like to run up and down the bleachers and "work out" with us!

So, that's my "time to get skinny again" plan for when baby arrives.  I have about 30-33 lbs to lose!  Sara and I are going to weigh ourselves every Friday to see the results!  I will be sure to keep you posted.  It's great accountability to have a group of friends know what you are committing to and holding you to it!

  4. Hi Kristi! Visiting from the Happy Go Lucky blog hop. :)

    Great plan for losing the baby weight! I love power walking in the evenings, too. The other teachers at the school I work at and I have just started an afterschool walking club. It's a start, right?

    Have a great day!
