I was in Vegas last weekend (a week ago) for my best friend's bachelor party, and went SLIGHTLY off Paleo while gone. But that carried into a week of somewhat lousy eating when I returned. I forgot how BAD I felt before Paleo. And on top of that, I'm holding onto 3 additional pounds.
But nevertheless - some good came from it.
1) I am now 1000% committed to Paleo. I have what I need to succeed. And I'm taking responsibility for it myself. Amber has decided that what works best for her is to do Weight Watchers, so she's switched to that. But I'm still with Paleo. I have a house full of good Paleo food - and lots of energy and drive to give it.
2) I've been more motivated to work out lately than before. And this morning I started with a full elliptical workout. Sometimes I'll hop on and do 15-20 minutes and call it good - but today I finished it. And it felt GREAT. I know I have about 2 months to be ready for Anaheim - and ready I shall be.
3) I've decided to talk to my doctor about a variety of things that have been bugging me personally - I want to get some blood work done so I can see the effects of Paleo on me - and have a baseline. Plus - I want to talk to her about possibly getting a sleep study done (Amber has apnea). And yes - it's vein of me - but I want to talk to her about Rogaine.
In other words - I'm committed to using the resources I have to make myself the best me I can be. It won't happen overnight - and it won't be easy.
But then again - when has hard work REALLY ever bothered me once I committed myself to a principle?
