Lifestyle Change Not Diet

Two things that NEVER go out of style…Clean eating and exercise.

Blisters & The Bee Gees

It was nice and sunny today which meant that I went for a walk. I much prefer walking outside to the treadmill. I did  1.5 miles in 38 minutes which is slower than the past couple of days because blisters formed half way through and by the end it really hurt. Note to self, ditch the ankle socks. OUCH! But I did it and now I am wondering how I am going to go for walks until they heal.

Everyday is a challenge and these past two nights I have felt a great sense of happiness when I go to bed because I am forcing myself to be active ~ I am not a gym fan and I really envy those that HAVE to workout each day or they feel like something is missing in their day. You know, the type of person that looks for gyms while on vacation instead of being the type of person who is excited because they get to dine at restaurants and NOT workout…I want to be the former. So, if you head to the park and see someone walking on the long path wearing flip flops and humming the Bee Gees’ “Staying Alive“, that will be me.

Day 1: Ch-ch-changes!

Today is officially day one. I prepped by allowing myself a Heath chocolate bar and half a vanilla ice cream pint last night and am feeling the side effects today. AHHHH! Just another reason to say good-bye to dairy products, so long to grains, adios to processed garbage and hello to whole foods. How will I fair by eating meat, veggies and small amounts of fruit? Robb Wolf reports in his book “The Paleo Solution” that our Paleolithic ancestors had stronger bones and less disease.

Made myself a scrambled egg and am now off to plant some Knockout Rose bushes (8) before we welcome the cold weather. Thankfully, Lowes had them marked down, making it easier on my pocket book. Maybe I should take that as a sign that I’m the only idiot in town planting in October.

Anyway, must keep myself busy…sugar cravings are already starting.
