I wanted to add this picture because this morning I went to go get bacon for my breakfast and I took it as a joke and sent it to my boyfriend. We are both healthy eaters and I told him I wanted to start a whole 30 today. I took a picture of the donuts because who doesn't love donuts and said I was bringing breakfast. It just a reminder to myself that I am not allowed to eat sugary breakfasts. My willpower will not overcome me. I struggle with eating problems all throughout my life and I'm sick of it. So now I will challenge myself to without all sugary, unhealthy items. It's amazing what bad things it can do to you body.
Be mindful of what you put in your body it can truely change your life.
We all fall into a rut. I know I sure as hell do. And too much. But it's my baseline that gets me back to where I want to be. Healthy and fit. I fell into this rut when I hurt my knees, I couldn't do crossfit. I didn't think I could do anything. But now I workout at a regular gym. Do isolated workouts and conditioning without having to squat. And I'm getting back to somewhere I want to be. I just want to be healthy. I am so happy that I can do this now and I am excited to do this now. I look forward to what has come for me. I'm back coaching for health and wellness and I started drinking shakeology again. I stopped and looked back to almost a year ago and I was as healthy and fit as I can be on shakeology. And it tastes good which is a huge plus. I can't wait to commit and keep going. It doesn't matter what you do, it ot matters if your consistent.
I am three days into my 30 day Paleo challenge and yes it is very challenging.
I am trying to take one day at a time, one meal at a time.
I have been doing very good and turning down foods that are completely not paleo. Yes I have had a salad with some dressing that might not have been super strict and there might have been some blue cheese crumbles in my stomach as well. And yes I did have a glass of wine with dinner. But I am not going to stop that is not going to make me get down on myself. If I let that get to me then I will completely have something not Paleo and it will all go downhill from there. The first few days are the hardest and I know that. It might be a week or two until I get used to it.
I am going to call it my Whole Paleo because I know I have already messed up my whole30. But I am 80/20 paleo and by that I mean, 20% of the non-paleo foods I eat are healthy. By that it means I have some organic rice or I have a tiny bit of sauce thats not completely paleo. Some of you might not agree with me calling this a whole 30. Yes I understand that it's not but I am staying healthy and am not going off and cheating a crazy meal. If anything I have a healthy non-paleo piece of food in my meal.
I am going to Thailand in two months and I am going to be ready. I am not going to have a cheat. I am going to be healthy and workout til then. I encourage you to follow along with me and ask questions if you wish and keep in touch. It helps having a connection with someone on the same path. I will try to keep an update as much as possible with school, work, fundraising.
Enjoy your day, live positive <3
A couple days ago I ate a salad. It was a great salad. It made me realize that I take food for granted and I lost a connection with my food. I gained a connection with my food the other day when I had an amazing salad. Most of us don't eat to live we LIVE to EAT. It's almost disgusting how bad it has gotten. Our lifestyles and connections with food nearly doesn't exist anymore to some people. We are not being mindful when we eat a meal. Most the time people just want to scarf down their food and go on with their life. I think it is very important to sit down for every meal, or at least be aware of what is going on when your eating your meals. To think about your food as you are digesting it. It's good for your health and good for your soul and body. I think it is important to have a connection with your food and to slow down and think about it. Otherwise we are prone to overeating and to eating highly toxic foods. Know where your food comes from and listen to your body people. It's easier than you think.
I am a dedicated individual when it comes to health and fitness. I love the outdoors and being active.
