I was just reading through some of my old blog entries and I found a very uplifting set of "holiday primal streak" entries from December 2011. I was eating well, losing weight rapidly, and just generally loving on life. I want to get that back, and there's no reason I can't, grad school be damned!
Today was a food-mess from the moment I woke up (sweetened latte for breakfast, GF pizza for lunch, GF pad thai for a snack, most of a pint of ice cream for dinner). But! But but but: tomorrow is, as always, a new day. So beginning tomorrow you all should be on the lookout for "Holiday Primal Streak: 2013 edition". I'm going all in with no sugar or grains for at least the next two weeks. It's going to mean giving up margarita Monday, but I'm temporarily ok with that. It's also going to coincide with me ratcheting up my exercise program and going to bed at 11pm whenever it is academically possible for me to do so.
I've been caught up in a downward spiral of school bringing me down which brings down my eating and exercise which makes school seem to suck more, etc. I just need to turn that spiral around - eating well and exercising so I can sleep well so I have more energy to put into school during the day so I am happier and more inclined to eat well and exercise! Sounds simple in theory (though I'm sure it'll take some effort to stay on target).
I'm glad I took that little trip down memory lane. Motivated myself to get back on the ancestral diet bandwagon. Plan, act, succeed…allons-y!
