A week off…

Of what you might ask? The gym. I am allowing 1 yoga and 1 light spin. No impact, no lifting. Just resting. My body has been craving rest lately, I’m talking 1-2 naps a day, can’t stay awake in school or focus for that matter. I knew it was time, and I figured what the heck. Here’s this week: (yes, I’m a planner!)

Sunday: rest, Monday: rest, Tuesday: spin, Wednesday: rest, Thursday: rest, Friday: yoga, Saturday: rest.

Honestly now being through almost day 2, its weird. I’m so accustomed to the gym that I don’t quite know what to do with all this free time! Craziness!

I’ve been able to get a bunch done for my peacemaking and perspectives in health class. You can check them out here:, if your interested!

No foodie pictures today, sorry! I forgot! But, I didn’t forget what I ate:

Brex: Chicken apple sausage (from whole foods!), egg whites, berries, walnuts

Snack: celery sticks, almond butter

Lunch: turkey, broccoli, almonds

Snack: apple

Dinner and nightly munchies still to happen but so far so good! With getting back to the “paleo diet” I feel SO GOOD! I can’t even explain this. I am awake, full of energy and ready to go, and I’m not starving all the time like I was when I was eating a lot of grains!

So question… I am thinking about doing a post on the paleo diet. Can I just say paleo-ism (you know, veganism, vegetarianism) haha! Should I do a post? If so, what would you all like to see included? Any other things you would like for me to discuss on here?

Just a picture to make you laugh (at me!)


Ignore the butt shot, just take in the fact that I am SO SHORT I have to open the car door, step outside and go through my window to reach the darn ATM!

Have a lovely evening!

    Good for you! I have been taking it light in the exercise department myself lately and it’s been great! (not hungry every hour, haha). I would love to see a post on the paleo diet! I have been hearing about it anywhere but have no clue what it is. Any info would be interesting to me 🙂

    Hahah I am actually enjoying the rest, although I don’t know what to do with myself seeing I have an extra like 1-2 hours open!

    Paleo post, in the works 😉

    Hey, I just found your blog 🙂 The name of it caught my attention! I like lifting too, but not as much as you do 😉 haha. I feel kind of stupid saying this but I have no idea what a paleo diet is! I’ll be looking forward to your post.

    I was reading your “about” section and I think that would be so cool to compete in a figure competition! My roommate and I are going to the Arnold next month and I’m really excited!!

    So good to take some time off, good for you, girl!

    And it’s okay to be short! Someone has to balance out girls like me that are so tall. 😉

    • Sarah / Feb 8 2011 11:25 pm

    I would love to see you do a paleo post! While it’s not a way I could eat (I’m mostly vegan), I would love to learn more about it. 🙂

    • Sarah / Feb 10 2011 11:12 am

      I would love to see you do a post on vegan”ism”! I ate a vegan diet for quite some time before learning it just wasn’t my jam! I think those that can do it are awesome and I fully support you 🙂

  10. Kayla / Feb 11 2011 2:36 pm

    Ooh, yes! Do a post on the paleo diet! I really want to learn more about what it is exactly.

    • Sarah / Feb 11 2011 7:04 pm

      I’m going to be posting one monday 🙂

    Ok, the picture IS funny, but I can’t laugh too much — I’m tall and I STILL have to do that sometimes!

    As for taking a break from high-impact workouts, that can seriously do wonders for the body. I almost always have my best workouts after taking a short break!

    • Sarah / Feb 11 2011 7:05 pm

      I am so excited to get back to training! But, I must say it’s been a nice little break!

      ATM’s are simply just too far away 😉
