Hmmm Let's really look at this.

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I have been doing more reading and thinking. I don't think I should think of my new life style as Paleo. I think in reality what I am more looking at is what they call CLEAN EATING. Paleo is similar and there are many cross overs. It's just not as restrictive which I think makes it more likely I will follow it.
I am not a cave woman I just want to get back to basics and take out all the processed foods and most sugars in my life. I want healthy fit living.

I Started this on Saturday and so far so good. I had one miniature mint patty. I am not beating myself up over it. Keep going and be strong. I want a long healthy life and that is my focus.

Paleo way of life

Saturday, November 09, 2013

I have been trying to lose weight most of my adult life. Today started another journey in this trial.
I have believed for several years now that all the processed foods we eat causes/adds obesity and cancers.
I have heard of the Paleo diet before but just recently started reading more info on it. "Light Bulb moment" yep this is what I have been thinking all along. The hormones antibiotics in our dairy all the chemicals we digest for convenience sake is what is making us the first generation in decades that our life expectancy is not as long as our parents.

It will be a struggle I know because life gets the best of us and grabbing convenience goods are just too easy. PLANNING is what I need to focus on I love the food as long as I'm prepared to eat it.

I just had my second grand child last Friday, my first grand daughter and I am determined that I WILL be not just here for her but able to be active and healthy for her.

Blogging is going to be part of this new Life style.

Starting yet again.

Monday, April 02, 2012

I would love for me to stop starting a healthy lifestyle and finally be at the point where I am just continuing one.
The last blog I wrote I notice was back in 2007 and now here it is 2012 and I am still fighting the fight.
I know all the right things to do, except the motivation. I know how and what to cook and eat. I know I need to exercise and make it part of my daily life. I always set out with good intentions but I always fall short.
I turn 50 here in a little over a month and I hope that when I turn 51 that I will be continuing on my healthy life style and not just starting and starting again on this voyage to becoming a healthy person.

well, I just printed off the menus and shopping list. I have most stuff I need on hand. I basically know what to do to loose weight. I just need to stay focused and not give into cravings and to push myself to exercise.
