I’m stuck. And it’s my fault.
I only got in two (yes, count ‘em) TWO exercise sessions last week. I did stick with my Practical Paleo eating plan, so that was okay. I’m just not losing anything. I know it’s not all about weight, because I am feeling healthier and generally well.
I want to fit my pants. Is that too much to ask?!! ;)
Anyway, because of my failure to progress, I made the decision to start a Whole30 today (if you aren’t familiar, Whole30 is a super-clean Paleo way of eating – no cheating – for 30 days)!! There really won’t be too much difference in how I’m eating already, but I will be cutting out all sweeteners (I’ve been using stevia for my coffee and honey for a few “treats” I’ve made for the girls) and no “paleo-fied” treats!
I’ve gotten into a bad habit. Because my girls are also doing a modified Paleo, I start to feel guilty that they don’t get to have treats. Then, I look for ways to “Paleo-fy” things like pancakes (which I have to admit were pretty tasty)! For them, it’s fine; but I just need to not eat those things right now.
Anyway, I’ll be traveling to a conference this week, so I’m not sure exactly how all the eating and exercising will play-out. I just know I’m determined!!
1) Lose 10 pounds.
Lost 3.5 pounds since I started.
2) Work-out 4-5 times per week.
Only got in two P90X2 work-outs for the week!!
3) Follow a Paleo-type diet and utilize Practical Paleo to guide me in it.
Each Monday for the next twelve weeks, I’ll be sharing my progress. You can also follow along with all of the other bloggers, too! Check them out over at the Get Healthy & Fit page at Sidetracked Sarah!
