#Mamavation Monday - That's Not Paleo!
I swear Paleo was so much easier than having to navigate back into everything. There is no challenge, no support group and my family is over "Paleo." However, for all purposes it was pretty darn easy to follow. Now I'm constantly thinking about what I'm eating and how it's going to effect me. It's stressing me out to be honest with you. Once a month we do go out with friends and I could care less about what I eat or drink or counting calories. I just want to relax with my friends and have good conversation and hang out. It's really nice! The rest of my days are spent meal planning or hunting recipes. Some of the recipes I have been trying are fun and tasty but they aren't necessarily "healthy" either. I'm having to navigate my way back into healthy mode. So please! keep posting your recipes on Fridays because I did find a few I want to try.
A friend of mine asked me what I was taking away after the Paleo challenge. Obviously I'm still cooking, I'm trying like heck to stay away from the processed foods but I don't have any fears about trying recipes. I know Paleo worked for my body but it was hard to keep up. I've seen what salt and processed food has done to my body. I'm also finding out how my body responds to different breads. I'm still caffeine free for the most part. I had one small cup of coffee at church but that was it, back to my water I went.
Oh I'm up to 5 hours of sleep now! I'm really a fan of my Fitbit Ultra.
I still haven't made a full recovery and I'm over here on the side lines just gritting my teeth. I did get to walk a 5K on Saturday morning even though it was freezing. Meanwhile my friends are getting to run and do obstacle course races (my favorite!). I'm not sure if I will be able to do one again or not. It stinks to be doing so little. This Texas weather is NOT helping at all, cold and raining one day, cold and windy the next!
