Days 3 & 4

Well that was short lived. We got sick. Which threw a big wrench into the "I will work out for 10 days straight plan". The hubs had a pretty high fever, the chills and a stomach ache. I had a stomach ache and a pretty awful headache. So we lived off soup, crackers and gatorades on Thursday. Which meant no cooking. No cooking=no leftovers. No leftovers=eating out. Eating out=bad. So for lunch I had a subway sandwich and after dinner I had some popcorn and candy at the movies. Ugh. So here we are again. Except now it is t minus 6 days until we leave. So operation eating healthy, working out and getting my life back together goes into full effect (again) tomorrow.

As I continue my health journey (which has taken a major detour these past 2 months) I am learning that life throws some obstacles in your path and you don't always overcome them in the way you wish you did but that doesn't mean you give up. I have all the tools I need- I can cook, I know how to make healthy food taste awesome, I have the time, I have the means, I have the knowledge and I have the desire (deep down) but what I am I lacking? Motivation. When you get into a pattern of eating unhealthier than you want and when excuses become your new normal ("I am too busy" "I am too tired" "We got sick" etc) it gets really difficult to get back on track. It is a pretty sick cycle because when you eat unhealthy you lose energy. When you lose energy you stop working out. When you stop working out you get out of shape. When you get out of shape you feel pissed when you do work out and you suck at it. So then you end up feeling tired, fat and lazy. When you feel tired, fat and lazy you decide you need to get back on track but the problem is you feel too tired, fat and lazy to put in the effort. That is where I am at now- I have the TFL's (tired, fat, lazies).

So how will I drag my TFL ass out of this cycle? I am going to wake up tomorrow and run. Then I am going to drink a protein shake. Then I am going to throw away all the gross food at my house. Then I am going to cook some chicken for lunch. I will eat that chicken with a sh*t ton of vegetables. Then I am going to make a Paleo dinner and eat that. Then I will have one day under my belt and I will worry about the next day then because right now I feel too TFL to even think about it.

One day at a time.
One meal at a time.
One WOD at a time.

I will get back on track. It will suck but I know once I do overall I will be a much happier person. Because even though it is sooooooooo much easier being TFL it makes me grumpy. And negative. And unhappy. For those of you just reading this blog it isn't always such an awful Paleo blog full of non-paleo food written by someone who just ate a pack of Nestle Buncha Crunch. So stick with me and I will get back to my every day recipes/healthy lifestyle. Soon. Hopefully.

Here is a Paleo recipe for those of you are still fighting the good fight. I will be joining you soon- keep strong and healthy!!!!
