On The Wagon

It’s one of my favorite Green Day songs, but it’s also how I’m feeling about getting really strict again and working out hard.  The weather is warming up, bathing suit catalogs are coming to the house, and I got a trip to the Caribbean on the horizon!  I’m happy with my progress so far, but I want more!  I haven’t fallen off the wagon or anything, just kind of lolly-gagging around.  In two weeks the clocks will go ahead one hour, which means the sun will set later in the day.  This will be good for me since I usually go to the gym after I sleep after work, around 6 or 7 PM.  (I work overnights)  <—-and Paleo has been a Godsend, just FYI.

Cooking meals is becoming second nature now, and food shopping has gotten much, much easier.  I can’t believe I haven’t had bread or pasta OR PIZZA since the beginning of August.  Incredible.  It’s amazing what our bodies are capable of, and the things we can adapt to.  It’s also amazing how we get so comfortable with how we feel (even if we feel bad).  People, we have to stop this behavior!  Prior to August, the way I was with eating and things I ate, I have completely abandoned for a new way of life.  There’s no possible way.  Being Paleo is beyond gluten free, so all those cute little gluten free snacks you see…yeah, I don’t eat those either.  I have to make things from scratch.  My “bread” is the pizza dough I make.  I had an egg sandwich the other day…it was amazing.

It’s the weekend, enjoy it!

“Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.  So, love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don’t.  And believe that everything happens for a reason…if you get a chance – take it; if it changes your life – let it.  Nobody said that it would be easy…they just promised it would be worth it.”

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
