When motivation strikes, I want to act. And, believe me, after a recent picture found it's way to Facebook I am ALL kinds of motivated. Who cares if I don't feel 100%? This girl is changing back to the old ways, I want to lift heavy things, break a crazy sweat and have that incredible endorphin rush that gives me this insane feeling of elation. I want to feel the aches in my muscles that said I did something with them and ... most of all ... I want to be back into a healthy lifestyle of good eating.
My husband and I made a deal that NO bad food would come into the house. No refined sugars would be transported from the old house to the new house. Our house would have fresh vegetables, some fruit and lean proteins. There would be no wheat, no dairy, no legumes, no sugar. In other words, full on paleo. I "may" allow my husband to have his yogurt. He needs a little more of a boost in his diet than I do because he has a much more physical job than me. But, I will NOT be touching the dairy. I did better without it. I obviously have problems with inflammation and dairy is an inflammatory food. Maybe not for you, but it is for me. There was a definite change when I added dairy back into my diet.
This is how I am going to live my life. I won't be persuaded to change because people don't agree. It is a lifestyle change, it is my health and it is my body that is speaking to me. I know what I can and cannot eat. I know how foods affect my body. I had so much more energy and felt amazing when I was eating this way and working out.
So, my motivation is keyed up and ready to launch. Hopefully, tomorrow we will sign our loan documents and I know that this ball will actually be rolling, changes will be afoot.
It is a hard reality to have gained back every pound I lost. I know I don't eat right. I eat like crap right now. When my mouth hurt, even salads were too rough for me. Sometimes, my mouth hurts even now so I eat hard things sproadically. But, ocne I move .... it's on. I'll have my kitchen, I'll have my space ...
If only we could just sign the papers and get the keys already. I am ready to make permanent changes. I am ready to take charge again. This is MY life!!!! This is MY health!!!
Let's get this show on the road!!!
