Fake paleo breakfast?

No training today. Instead, ol' Bally the Dog and I went on an hour walk after I had timed my morning meditation with the sun rise.

We went through a nearby cemetary and down into the old grove, where we came across a turtle sitting in our path. It was a big'un, but we left it undisturbed (it was in no hurry to go anywhere, LOL!) and carried on.

Unfortunately, the skitters (mosquitos) didn't leave me undisturbed. Eventually we got out of the forest and walked down by the pretty Avon river here in Stratford. Then we turned home, climbed a few hills, and I did 10 minutes of yoga/core/stretching after Bally ate his breakfast.

Body is feeling strong and in good alignment for tomorrow's big deadlift session. Weather permitting, I'll go for a leisurely bike ride after dinner tonight, as I did last night.

Breakfast today was a 'fake' paleo breakfast, proving that you can find a way to cheat on any diet. It was processed paleo, LOL. I had 2 almond butter sandwiches with Paleo honey-raisin bread from Julian Bakery, Green Tea, and an Ancient Cacao flavored Paleo Protein shake.

Here's a link to the protein powder

Both the bread and protein powder have so much stevia in them that they are probably giving me diabetes. They are both so sweet, and I love it! I think I'm eating healthy but really just satisfying my sweet tooth. Major L to the OL!

Here's a better paleo breakfast approach:

And here's a decent smoothie article:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
If you want to get ahead tomorrow it all starts with how you end your day tonight. Make the right decisions, right now, for your right life. Stay focused. Stick to your plan. Take action. Believe in yourself. Hang around winners. Lead others. Have courage. Be persistent. Never quit. No excuses. … "Whatever a great man does, the world follows. Whatever standards he sets, the world pursues." - The Bhagavad Gita, chapter 3

Make the right decisions,
