Paleo Day #3

Hello, again. Time to get back into blogging, I reckon.

So I’ve finished the Distance Delta and things are going pretty well and work and whatnot, so I’ve decided it’s a good time to start taking care of myself. Anyway, I came across the Paleo Diet while reading something about zombies (shutup) that someone at work (quite rightly) thought I’d find funny.

The main idea is that we’ve spend 95% of our history as hunter-gatherers and only 5% as farmers. As such, we haven’t evolved to deal with the sheer amount of grains and grain products that we eat everyday. So the idea is you eat only what a caveman could eat. Last night I had steak, eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms. Right now I’m eating a vegetarian omelette.

Yes, it’s gratuitous. No, I don’t care.

It’s a pretty easy diet to follow with a lot of support online. I’m actually rather enjoying it, putting aside the freshly-baked goodies my ex-housemate left behind that I’m trying to ignore.There’s also the issue that my long-term knee injury is killing me. Or it is whenever I rely on it a little to hard. I’m worried about it, but I don’t have health insurance, so it’ll cost me a fortune to fix anything that can’t be helped by ibuprofen. So high-impact exercise is kind of out of the question for the foreseeable.

So, yeah. That’s what I’m doing at the moment. Along with a potential full-time position at work and looking for a new housemate, all’s well.
