One week of paleo down

So I had that heart to heart with Hubby last weekend and wow, did he jump on board quickly. He went right on his phone and started looking up Paleo recipes. He planned the whole week out and had a different paleo meal every night. He also made some paleo 'treats'. It was awesome. I cooked a bunch of chicken in my Instant Pot and had that and salad for lunch. It was awesome. A couple of things I noticed. I didn't feel so fat and bloated. The scale didn't move much, but that's okay, I felt better. Also, I was not completely wiped out at the end of the day. I would get tired around 2-3, but my energy would come back without a nap. Yay!!!! So I'm back on track. My workouts didn't happen as often as I would have liked, but you know what? That's okay. I'm starting to feel a lot better and if it takes a little bit of time to get the workouts in hand, I'm okay with that. I'm just so glad to be feeling good again. We are going to a Bites N' Brews thing tonight and I'll be going off paleo, but I'm not going to let it derail me completely. I'm going to treat it like a carb night scenario. I've gone 6 days on pretty strict paleo so going a little high carb tonight will not derail me completely. I'm looking forward to getting into the workouts again. I love the way I feel when I workout consistently so I want to add that to the way I feel while eating well. So I'm finally feeling like I'm on the right track again. I'm not going to rush it and I'm not going to beat myself up if I slip up a bit, it is consistency over time that really matters. So thing are good.
