It was a little over a year ago I first tried the paleo diet. Prior to that I had all manner of things going wrong with me. Nothing serious, but being really tired, bloated, mentally fuzzy, etc. Things that I thought were just a part of old age. Once I started the paleo diet these things started clearing up. I felt better, thought better, was able to work out better. It was awesome. But I didn't stick with it and I'm not sure why. I'm not sure why I began eating foods that made me feel horrible again. I'm not sure why I put my body through the stress of eating crap. I'm not sure. What I am sure of is 2 days back on paleo and I am already starting to feel awesome again. I know that I will suffer a lack of energy, I expect that to hit any time now, but ultimately I will feel a whole lot better. Hubby is working nights next week, so tonight is our last dinner together for a while. I am going to use this week to go full blown paleo. This weekend I'm going shopping for some things like plantains and squash, and I'm cooking every night. By this time next week I want to be bouncing off the walls with energy and feeling good. I need to stay focused on the long term and not give in to short term pleasure. Sure, a donut tastes good when I'm eating it but it really feels horrible later. And I don't even care about the weight. I really don't. I'm finally feeling comfortable in my body and weight is not that important. What I do care about is my health and how I feel. That's what I'm going to focus on.
