pure. paleo. january.

Okay Paleo peeps. I’m tired of counting calories. I’m leaner than I was the last time I wrote. But alas I got busier too and stopped sending you all my love. Now I’m back. And planning a Pure Paleo January challenge. Really. This time, no dairy, even if it means keeping the espresso pot in the drawer. And no cheats for a whole month. I will try to reach the Whole30 nirvana. And my focus will be on meal planning. I am pouring over Well Fed. Apart from wishing I wrote it, I love it! Beautiful photos of creative recipes that I can make. Plus tips on how to make a work week work around Paleo.

So I’m going to treat myself like I’m a member of a really cool gym and take this advice. One hundred percent compliance. Thirty days. Let the magic begin.

And no counting calories in January. I have about six to eight more weeks of off-season training volume. I have a funky 10.5 km off-road race followed by a half marathon, followed by the Amstel Gold century tour, and then I’ll be training again for 70.3. Lighter, healthier, leaner, faster, stronger.

Quote for today – Greg Lemond. “It never gets easier, you just go faster.”

I’ll be back tomorrow as these January plans start to take shape.

  1. Hello! Love that you’re reading Well Fed, and I just had a blast reading your bio. I was a late-onset triathlete, too. I did the Wildflower Half Ironman in 2000, and I was the very last finisher: 9.5 hours. OMG! I can’t believe I did that. It was 50lbs. ago and before I really knew anything about nutrition.

    Anyway… yay for you! Hope you enjoy Well Fed.

    • Congratulations. I’ve heard Wildflower is a great course. Last is fantastic! I was next to last when I ran the Rotterdam marathon. Your comment made me realise I never updated my bio! Done.

  2. So cool that you got Melissa’s book. She seems like a neat person and her chili recipe is super yum.

    Let me know if there’s anything I can do to support your challenge. I pretty much follow the Whole30 all the time (except for honey and stevia). If you need help…..ASK!

  3. Greg’s quote is true, true, true. And the Wildflower name is deceiving – it sounds all flowery and friendly but everybody says it’s a beast. Yay for finishing.
