My Tips on Sticking to the Plan and Loving It
It was two months ago when I dived in with full force into the Paleo, well Paleo(-ish), world. By full force I mean that I gave up cow milk in my coffee, the one non-paleo thing I held on to until the very end of my Paleo warm up. Not to say that it's been easy or that there hasn't been any slips. But there has been rewards on feeling more alert, more energized and capable every time I do stay committed.
So here's a quick run down of 6 easy things that helped me stay on track and in love with the Paleo diet.
Get better results from the work you put into your body
When it comes to attaining results hard work is good, but working hard on your joints can set you back farther than where you started. Getting the best for your body while staying away from injuries is all about how you move.
If you lead an active life style, it's likely that you have at one point or another experienced a muscle or joint strain and maybe a minor injury or even a major one.
Learn how you can apply what I call the Pilates Way into the activities you already do for better health, longevity of your joints, strength (and the good looks too!) at the best of what your genetics can afford you.
I saw this documentary, The Perfect Human Diet by broadcast journalist C.J. Hunt, about two weeks ago, spilling some very harsh opinions on wheat, especially whole wheat and legumes (a Vegetarian's best friends). And whether the claims in the film are true or not, it was enough to get me curious.
So yes, I am going Paleo(-ish)!
Now, here is why I am doing it...
This year I will...
...Go beyond resolutions and make real, lasting changes,
Give it my all but only for the right reasons,
Keep them for as long as they make me happy.
My notes on making it happen and keeping it up.
I once read a quote from a fitness trainer posted by a friend on my Facebook timeline a year or two ago, and it said something along the lines of if you are hungry before lunchtime, your breakfast sucked. Being a proponent of eating every couple of hours for as long as I could remember, at first I rejected the idea. But then it got me thinking, what if he is right?
