This post will still include what my regimen was for the week but this will also focus on what I ate. I wanted to be really honest with what I ate so if there are things that are contrary to what I am preaching, I shouldn’t feel bad because I decided to eat it and it shouldn’t affect me too long.
So this week is still – and hopefully will continue to be – a six days a week thing. So I kept it. I did 4 days of Yoga at Bikram Yoga Alabang (Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday) and 3 days of CrossFit (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) so at least my regimen is intact. What made this week extra special is that I started watching what I ate.
Warning: This post will have food that may be against your diet and even against Paleo. I decided to post this here to show all of you that even I allow cheat meals every now and then. As long as you have a healthy workout regimen laid out, then the meals should be alright.

Week Analysis: I do not regret what I ate. Majority of what I ate for the week was Paleo and for the whole week, I was getting after it. Having to list down everything is a good way to watch what you ate. Often times we think that it has been a long while since you had a cheat meal but after looking at my log, it was just a while after all. This week’s challenge is to lessen the non-paleo stuff and consider doing portion control. Also, it’s gonna be juices for dinner.
How did your week go?
