Sore is the New Black

Yesterday I participated in the HARDEST workout I have ever done…in my life!  It was called Strike Zone, and it was insane.  I would consider myself pretty fit, but this class was ridiculously hard!  It was awesome, I feel great (and extremely sore), but it was great.  I ate a banana before bed and I think it helped with my soreness a bit.

Here’s your breakfast!

Italian Scramble

  • ½ tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 ½ C. kale
  • ½ C. cherry tomatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinaigrette
  • ¼ avocado

Melt coconut oil in small pan. Add kale, 3 TBSP water, pinch of salt, and the cherry tomatoes. Stir to coat, then put the lid on. Let it cook 3-4 minutes, stirring once or twice. Take a spatula, and press the tomatoes. Scramble 2 eggs in a bowl, and pour over veggies. Stir it up, and cook to your liking. Plate and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and serve with avocado on the side.

Then for dinner…

Bacon-Wrapped Barbecue Chicken

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 C. barbecue sauce (I recommend Googling a recipe – find one to your liking)
  • 1 package of bacon

Marinate the chicken in the barbecue sauce for 8 hours or overnight. Before grilling, wrap each piece of chicken with two slices of bacon, securing with toothpicks.  Place chicken on grill and cook for about 10 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Simple. Delicious.

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
