The Road Less Traveled

P1010188

This morning I did something I never thought I would do. I didn’t make any excuses. I didn’t let the fact that my friend backed out of exercising stop me. There are about a hundred different things I would rather have been doing but I didn’t. Not only did I ignore the voice that continuously told me that watching TV was more fun, especially because it was gloomy outside, but I took the long path. I have never taken the long path before…the best part is when you just want to stop, you can’t it’s a full circle and you must go on. I walked 2.5 km in 35 minutes which to me it was an accomplishment. Sometimes it’s fun to take the road less traveled!

Whole 30 Day 6

Prove me wrong…PLEASE!

Despite our 7 year age difference, my sister and I are very close. Growing up there wasn’t any sibling rivalry or fighting. I looked forward to every second weekend when I would visit my Dad because that meant I would get to see her. Kim has always and will always be someone that I look up to (despite our height differences), someone that I admire and someone I am proud of. She is beautiful inside and out, quick with a joke, laid back and easy going. She is opinionated, adventurous and always supportive.

Ironically, it was the detailing of the positive changes that came alone with my husband’s Paleo lifestyle that inspired her to do TheWhole30. She did it, has completely embraced her new way of eating and is now inspiring me with her words of challenge.

Yes Kim, I will gladly phone on Day30 to let you know that I have broken my past eating habits and have built the necessary foundation towards a healthy me.

Day 6/30

New Year, Same Resolution!

So I completely dropped the ball and am now left saying “I’m sorry”.

Who am I apologizing to since this is a new blog with few followers? It’s simple, I am saying sorry to those people that have taken the time to “Like” Passion for Paleo on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest and while I am at it, I should also say sorry to the people closest to me…my children and husband.

Sorry I didn’t not chase you in the park, sorry that I had to stop halfway through a hike, sorry that I didn’t participate in XYZ activity, sorry it takes me forever to get ready now…I feel uncomfortable and awkward and my clothes don’t fit like they use to. The image I see in the mirror may be familiar but it is also upsetting to see. I have let myself go, I eat the wrong food, I watch too much TV and I have yet to plug in our treadmill (which it really dusty and needs a good cleaning).

I may have had the same New Year’s Resolution for five years running but this time it’s going to stick. 2013 will be my year to get healthy. It’s starting now and it’s starting with Passion for Paleo.

I always thought by having a blog, I had to write to impress (which is BS) because I am writing for me. My sentences will have grammar errors and thankfully because of the squiggly red line, zero spelling mistakes. Please take me as I am,  flaws as all and feel free to read my online journal about getting healthy, losing weight and doing it Paleo-style! Maybe you will be inspired to change your lifestyle, discover a new recipe or feel like you are not alone in wanting to be a better person.

Hello world!

I am fat. Not chubby. Not big boned. FAT! I never thought my ass would be squeezing into size 24 nor did I think my bra would be a 44DD. I am many things but healthy is not one of them. I am an emotional eater, the Queen of Excuses, and a chocolate addict that has been lugging many extra  pounds around for  5+ years. I have finally gotten to a place where I’m sick of my extra baggage and want to start unloading. This body needs to change. I need to change.

I am going Paleo because of the successes I have seen with my husband. Jon originally decided to try Paleo for 30 days. By the end of week one he was hooked. 7 months later, he looks 10 years younger, is no longer taking any pain meds and as of two nights ago, he ran 2.5 miles. Not bad for someone that was recommended for ankle replacement surgery and was told that he’d be wheelchair bound when he gets older. I am motivated and living life to the fullest is my motivation.

I expect big results from eating how our Paleolithic ancestors did. I am on a journey to lose 150 pounds and that journey begins NOW!
