Good morning! I may be a little peppy this morning from my AM Yoga I did. I have been really tight and sore lately and I think I need to incorporate more yoga. I’m a week early though because next week on the Health Holidays challenge is relaxation/stretch it out week (oooh sneak peak!).
This is on top of my Yoga X workout last night! 90 Minutes of seriously intense yoga (he does push ups!). My body was happy sore afterwards and hopefully some of this tightness will start to go away.
In other news, I am still reading my new book, It Starts With Food, and I LOVE IT. I just finished the chapter on hormones and the whole time I was thinking “Is she talking about me??? Is this why I haven’t lost weight in the last 2 years despite trying EVERYTHING?!” I’m already ready to recommend this book and I’m not even done yet! I’ve also been scoping out the Whole 30 Program on their website (because I’m impatient) and I printed out their meal planning guide to get me started (impatient, remember?). Ok, I don’t want to give everything away but seriously, loving this book already!
Also, lots of people have been super interested in what Paleo is all about (Paleo Diet = Whole 30, basically) and I compiled the list of blogs I’ve written about the diet for you for easy reference:
- In Defense of Paleo (some great reference websites listed here)
- Q&A: The Paleo Diet
- Book Review: The Paleo Diet for Athletes
- Book Review: Paleoista
- Book Review: The Paleo Solution
I hope that gets you started. I’m no expert on the Paleo Diet but I share what I have learned (or my impressions). Like I’ve always said, I don’t see it as a diet but a lifestyle that gives me optimal health. It might not work for everyone, but it works for me!
So anyway, all this talk about it and I wasn’t Paleo yesterday! Being broke won out over healthy eats. I had to choose because a cheap sandwich or a salad that was twice as much. I went with the sandwich. Today, I’ve got everything ready to pack so I should be good. Mondays are just always so hectic!
Finally, I totally bombed getting my water in. I realized around 4PM that I was WAY behind (I had had like 1 glass) so I worked on it for the rest of the night. At least I tried once I knew I was doing poorly. There is always today!
Now, I have to be off. I have to finish up some homework and get to campus!
