I don’t want to dwell on the negative or the past. Let’s just say that I fell off the health wagon in February and March, and it’s time for a new beginning. So what’s different? I quit my regular gym membership and joined Crossfit and I’m trying the Paleo lifestyle with an 8 week challenge. I’m financially committed which is a huge motivator for me and I am being held accountable for my diet with a journal and a nutritionist checking it once a week. Cutting grains out of my diet is no biggy but cutting out dairy is hard, I love me some cheese! But I’m trying to keep the mindset that it is an 8 week challenge and I can do 8 weeks. For me if I can mentally see the finish line whatever that finish line may be- 8 weeks, a number of reps, a distance to run, etc. it is easier for me stick it out and keep going.
Today is day one and so far I’ve had a slice of the quiche above and 1/2 a coffee with almond milk. Next I’m going to eat a pear and I have a Larabar for my afternoon snack. Tonight I’m going to Crossfit at 5:30. Dinner is going to be ground turkey and salad or asparagus. The one thing I am fudging with my diet is alcohol, I’m not giving up booze completely. So cheers to new beginnings!
