I don’t even know where to start! I have thrown myself off of the healthy mountain I had created and have landed in the city dump of shitty food! I haven’t been blogging because I have completely thrown Paleo and anything associated with the idea of being healthy out of the window.
Let’s see, I was all the way down to 192 lbs and now I am all the way back up to 207! The question I have for myself is… Carissa, why the #%$^ do you do this to yourself? It’s not like I don’t know it’s a bad idea- I am well aware of this fact.
At first I said that I would just ease up on how strict I was. That did NOT work. What have I learned about myself? I have learned that if I don’t set a goal and a timeframe then I won’t do it. I have been saying that “we” are going back on Paleo; going to eat healthy; going to…; going to… you get the picture. The key phrase here is “going to”. I now know more than ever before that “going to” won’t happen unless I change it to “are”. We “are” eating healthy, being healthy, and living healthy. I say “we” because I am the one who does the shopping, so, unless B wants to start down the path of grocery store mania on his days off, he’s stuck with it 😉
So, Now What? Today is grocery shopping day- yay me! It’s like I am at ground 0 all over again and I have to “re-learn” what Paleo is- or even just what eating healthy is. I am finding myself thinking, “what do I eat for breakfast? what did I do for lunches before? what about dinners?” It’s been so long now that I have to start all over.
The biggest question I am asking myself right now is “how strict do I want to be with this?” Do I go to 100% Paleo? Like only eating organic, grass-fed, meats? NO sugar added to ANYTHING? Do I schedule in cheat days?
On another note, B and I bought bicycles last week! I am SUPER EXCITED about that 🙂
I’m on my way to greatness 🙂
Thank you Lord for the life you have provided me.
