Trying to Stay Healthy

Thursday, August 08, 2013

It's been really hard to stay on track the last few days. I've gotten back on the soda habit and have eaten some convenience food. The food isn't even that good, it's just easier that making food from scratch. And when you're eating paleo, everything is from scratch. I mean EVERYTHING. The "noodles", the mayo, the salad dressing.....everything.

I need to stop whining and making excuses. People all over the world manage to eat paleo while dealing with much heavier stuff. I'm just giving up without a fight, which I can't afford to do....not again. I just need to knuckle down and get back on track. So for the next week, I'm not going to eat or drink any convenience foods. No take out, no soda, no fancy calorie-laden coffees. Wish me luck! I'll let you know how the week goes.

    Thanks OHHHCHELLE! I'll have to give your idea a try. I do have some cherry juice in the fridge that needs to be used up. Yes, the paleo diet does sound restricting, when I put it like that. But I was focusing on its negative aspects in my last post. The paleo diet has some really great things going for it too including simplicity, emphasis on fruits & veggies and a focus on quality over quantity of foods. Additionally, many people prefer to do 80/20 paleo which is far less strict. I'm sticking to a strict paleo which many refer to as a Whole 9. It's harder to keep up with but I feel amazing when I'm on it. I hope I didn't turn you off to the idea.

    Good luck on your goals!

    Maybe this will help with your soda craving. I mix a little fruit juice (the kind with no sugar added) with seltzer (more seltzer than juice). Little by little decrease the amount of juice and increase the seltzer.
    As for the Paleo diet, it seems very restricting and deprivative so good luck with that.
    Stay determined and focus on your goal. You'll do fine.
    All the best.
