She also noted that I have good muscle tone "under there". Yeah, under 20 lbs of extra tummy, extra arm and extra back fat. She was kind and complimentary of my running, but gently encouraged me to watch the calories.
Since my focus is on the food now, here is what I ate yesterday. Note: I work from home on Tuesdays and have a lot of flexibility, so it should be a day for me to succeed.

Mixed with one sliced hard boiled egg (this way I'm not drawn to add salt to the egg)
Whole grapefruit (with a bit of Truvia on top, baby steps)
Got the teenager out the door so there was no one home to make fun of me while I did my 20 minute weights circuit. For the first time, I went running after the weights. Jokes on me, I felt really good (and speedy). Then I checked my Garmin halfway through and was running my normal 10:30 easy pace. Oh well, feeling good is half the battle? 4.12 miles, 43:02.

|Got these at the local Saturday Market.|
Dried doesn't appear to be the preferred way to eat fruit on the Paleo plan, but these are so good! Five or six was just what I needed for a 3pm snack.
I found the recipe on page 200 of the book Living Paleo for Dummies. Zucchini takes the place of the noodles. The rest of it is grass fed ground beef and a homemade tomato sauce with eggs added. I would eat it again, it filled me up and I felt good after eating it.
I drank water on and off all day. I also drank iced tea. I'm trying not to sweeten it at all, but carry my own Truvia (Stevia) packets so I can avoid my beloved Sweet 'n Low at restaurants.
There you have it, what I ate Tuesday posted on Wednesday.

Do you have a Paleo/unprocessed recipe site to share with me? I'm on the lookout for more friendly recipes.
When you lift weights and run in the same day, what order do you do it in? Weights first or run first?
