"just curious: is eating raw meat something that is considered an ideal in paleo by most? humans are able to absorb more nutrients from meat when it’s cooked vs. raw"
I have never heard that raw meat is preferred. I know that Peggy went raw to deal with some health issues. I geeked out in her blog a while back and read her story. It’s interesting. As far as nutrients are concerned my guess is that it depends on your gut. If cooked meat upsets your stomach and flies through your digestive track then you aren’t absorbing much of anything. So if eating raw meat allows you to digest it better then you may see better results.
Chores: Done and Done. I love my clean house. I also love the guilt free feeling of doing nothing because my chores are done.
Food: Was this week good? I don’t really remember. I did avoid a couple of tempting situations involving desserts, but could not resist cheese fries and wings. What are you gonna do? I am pleased with my latest drink choice, the Gin Rickey. Low in sugar, super refreshing, hydrating! Swoon. And I love gin. So there. Next week I will not drink during the week, one of my nutritional goals of this challenge. I didn’t really post nutritional goals for this challenge but I have them. Because I did my measurements for last month and I saw very little results after a month of fancy free eating and drinking. Shocking. Time to dial it in.
Fitness: I am nursing a really sore knee. Because of this, I did yoga home practice all week instead of more intense forms of working out. That’s right. After 2 failed months of an attempted daily yoga home practice, I manage to start this challenge off with 4 consecutive days of strong yoga practice. Hmph. So much for expectations. I will be getting back to crossfit next week after a hiatus. After “skiing” yesterday, the knee is stiff but not painful so I am ready to go back.
Personal Care: I brushed like a champ, but still haven’t set up my dentist appt. I filed and organized last week! I have not cleaned out yet. There is snow on the ground. And the dumpsters, and the sidewalks. That’ll have to wait.
Yoga: Look, yoga has it’s own spot. Why? Because after a strong first week of home practice, I am adding a 30 day challenge to this month! One of these days, my home practice will be second nature. The only way for that to happen is persistence.
And an aside, my screen time has dipped dramatically already with no monitoring on my part. My habits, they are a-changin’.
