It’s my 4th day on the 90 Day Paleo Challenge and to be honest I am surprised that I lasted this long before cheating. This blog is about accountability and I did promise to be completely honest with my readers about my commitment to the challenge, so here is my confession:
Today I ate chocolate and I drank a blue V drink.
Cheat #1 = Crest Chocolates Coconut Rough
A lovely young girl was selling chocolates today as a fundraiser for her school. She did such a great job selling them to me. She was polite and confident. How could I say no? To reward the young girl for her excellent fundraising efforts I purchased four chocolate bars. Then… I ate one.
Cheat #2 = Blue V Drink
I was lacking a little energy today. I’m not sure why? Maybe it’s because of my sugar withdrawals or maybe it’s because I have cut right back on my carbohydrates. Whatever the reason, I needed to find some energy from somewhere so that i could play indoor soccer. I purchased the new Blue V Drink which actually tastes very nice. I should have gone for the sugar-free version… or better yet the smaller size but no I had to purchase the biggest bluest V drink I could find. The buzz was great for the soccer game but the guilt is growing on me now.
Here is a pic of our indoor soccer team – The Family Fury!
What To Do After Cheating on The 90 Day Paleo Challenge?
Of course I will get straight back on track tomorrow, but how do I make up for my dieting cheats? Danielle Nicosia from Me Myself And Food has a great idea for Paleo Punishment! Danielle says “One cheat (includes all grains, legumes, sugar, and dairy) = 20 burpees”.
I am going to use this Paleo Punishment technique for all of my cheats. Today I have accumulated 2 cheats which equals 40 burpees. I am not exactly sure how to do a burpee just yet but I plan to watch Danielles Youtube Link to Burpees:
Right, so now I’m off to do my 40 burpees… Thanks Danielle!
