September 15, 2011

I feel better today. Notice I have the sniffles, but I feel good. Still a little groggy during the evening.

Paleo Day 3

I felt exhausted this morning and determined it was the transition to low carb. Felt much better after eating lunch.

Paleo Day 2

September 12, 2011


1/2 Chicken breast grilled, seasoned chef paul, olive oil

2T Almonds

1 carrot

I felt good this morning and this afternoon. Towards the end of the day, my stomach a bit upset. Not bad, but not right. If I had to guess, which I do, I would say it’s the chicken. High n6’s and all the stuff that comes along with a regular chicken. Plus, last time I did this I had trouble with Sanderson Farms chicken.

Paleo Day 1

September 11, 2011

This is the second time around with the 30-day challenge. This time, my partner and I are going 35 days. After completing the first 30, I went nuts with the junk food, binging unconsciously. I am in pretty good shape and probably let that give me permission to gorge. We’ll see how this one goes. Learning to cook offal, which is super cheap and healthier. I discovered some fantastic beef heart last week in the crock pot. The left-over butter poached salmon this morning was scrumptious. Now I’m grilling chicken breast and squash for dinner.

Things are starting to even out. Went out with friends tonight and didn’t realize Balsamic Vinaigrette has gluten in it! Ouch. I purposely ordered around the dairy and dressing and innoncently got mixed up with some standard stuff. I don’t know how much to tell you on this, but it seems I have more gas than usual, or as much as regular.  Could be apples? Canteloupe? Plumocots? Other? Not sure. I don’t feel like this when I am on a low carb diet which includes cheese and other, but I’m not panicking. I just need some answers. I’ll check on this soon.

…A consensus is emerging on what those best practices are, and they have little to do with test-driven instruction. Research by Linda Darling-Hammond, a Stanford University teaching expert and former Obama adviser, has found that in Finland, South Korea, and other high-performing nations, teachers spend just 50 percent of their workday in the classroom with students, compared to about 80 percent for American teachers. During the rest of their day, Finnish and South Korean teachers work with other adults to plan lessons, observe one another’s classrooms, and evaluate student work. This balance is especially important for beginning teachers; powerful evidence suggests that the single most helpful teacher-training exercise is to spend time inside a master teacher’s classroom and to get feedback from that master teacher on one’s own practice…
