Well Iím actually doing better than I thought I would. Yes, itís only day two of the New Year but by now my cravings are killing me that I give into temptation and cheat. As of yet, I havenít done to bad and no cheating, on purpose at least.
I started the Paleo Diet; Iíve been doing this off and on. I love it when Iím on it and hate it when Iím off. The problem is it can be inconvenient for a busy schedule. So my goal is to try to maintain this lifestyle and make it convenient by planning ahead. So far itís working well.
Here are some of the things that Iíve been eating and loving the past few days:
- Justinís Hazelnut Butter
- Steak Tacos and Pico de Gallo (wrapped in lettuce)
- Eggs, bacon and sautťed mushroom/onions
- Banana fritters
The steak tacos were a hit with the family:
As you can see it was enjoyed!
Iíve been a little tired as a result of going low carb but no major withdraws I hear complaints of. Iím excited to weigh in on Saturday.
Let me know if you want any recipes. I hope everyone had a Happy New Year.
The New Year is approaching which means itís time to start that New Yearís Resolution list. Every year itís the same thing for me. I think about all the things that I can fix or that I want to do. I get motivated to do them to only leave my list abandoned by February. My list lays abandon and I remain frustrated, a failure once again.
I tried thinking about what causes it. The main reason is pretty much overall laziness. I know it is. I just donít want to force myself to admit it. I think I get bogged down with remaining consistent that I start acting OCD. Everything has to be perfect. If I mess up one day and eat something naughty, thatís it. I give up. The whole day turns into a feast of food that Iíve been craving. The next day itís hard to recover because I feel so guilty.
This year, Iím telling myself itís okay if I canít do everything I want. Itís okay if I make a mistake. Itís okay if I eat something off my plan.
This year, Iím not making a list. Iím just taking everything one day at a time. Iím making small decisions for a bigger picture. If I look at it that way, I donít feel pressure, I donít feel overwhelmed and I donít want to start psyching myself out.
This is the plan at leastÖ. Letís see how it goes.
