Making the decision

Friday, October 23, 2015

I am so very thankful I watched DDP's video about living life at 90%. It really resonated with me, and has made me take a really hard look at the excuses I have been making. I did several days of the energy video while I waited for the DVD's to arrive in the mail. I did fat blaster yesterday and tried out red hot core today. I think I may have done to many in a row and the front of my shoulder is hurting and my wrists are a bit sore. I think I will listen to my body and not do to many days of things on my shoulders in a row. I want to build up the strength not tear them up.

So instead of jumping in and hurting myself I am going to actually start at the beginning and follow the beginner workout plan. I will be adding in possibly the standing up workout to help my balance and I will certainly be doing red hot core on the days when I'm not doing the beginner plan. I know I'm strong enough to do 5-6 days a week but not every day doing poses on all fours just yet. I have about 69 lbs I would like to lose to hit my goal.

I'm going to be doing my all to do the nutrition at level 3. I have been following a transitioning to paleo lifestyle and have been wondering if maybe total paleo isn't for me personally. I love the idea and support those that can do it full force, but if I've learned anything in my training to become a health coach, it's that one person's food is another person's poison. I've been gluten free since this past December but I still struggle occasionally with cheese. Love the stuff. I also struggle with organic treats, be it organic fruit juice suckers, or organic chips with high quality cheese(nachos) I'm working on changing that.

I can't do a full pantry overhaul because due to some life changes my family of 4 has chosen to move into my parents house for the time being to save up money and buy some land and then build a house on it. My parents where dairymen for a very long time and I might get shot if they ever saw me trying to get rid of their milk and cheese. They also eat lots of gluten containing foods. So I will do the best I can and likely will come here and blog about when I'm having a hard time avoiding their foods(which of course they have opened to share with my family). That's actually why I'm here, writing this down. To avoid some organic treats I gave my children. I have decided to give this my all and must therefore give it a fair shot. I've given up sugar before and I can do it again. I want the results! I've cut off all my other possibilities!
