Rest Day, a Little Frustration

So, with the exception of a little mayonaise in my diet, I’m going strict No Bread for this challenge.  I haven’t lost any weight (or my scale is broken), and like I said yesterday, I definitely have weight to lose.  I’m not at a place where gaining weight is healthy because I’m losing fat and gaining muscle.  I’m pretty frustrated right now, and I think I need to have my husband hide my scale from me so I don’t obsessively weigh myself every day and hopefully start seeing results with my own eyes or something for the next 40 days.

Today was a rest day for me.  I’ve worked out every day since Friday, so that was 4 days working out in a row.

Last night, I went to a Paleo Dinner at The Biltmore Bar & Grill in nearby Newton.  It was sponsored by Crossfit City Line and the chef at the Biltmore is a member there (Johnny Burke).  It was a five course paleo meal and it was AMAZING.  I went with fellow Craic ladies, Susie Diesel and K-Luv.  Here’s what we ate (pardon the crappy iPhone quality):

Paleo version of the "bread basket" - only this was homemade grassfed beef jerky, dried apricots, roasted walnuts, and pistachios

There was also a Local Greens Salad with Mesclun, Pepitas, and Miso – but it wasn’t really interesting to photograph.  It was still absolutely delicious.  Johnny Burke (the chef) told us that he was going to try to do the Paleo Dinners monthly.  I am so excited.  It was really an amazing meal and filled with good company.  If you live in the Boston area, I highly suggest you get your booty to one of his Paleo dinners.  It’s totally worth the money spent and the Almond Joy at the end…amaze-balls.
