I know it’s been a while. I graduated from nursing and became a nurse and well, I work a lot. I’m so glad I went back to school because nursing has been the best choice I could have made. My life is rich with rewarding work and making a difference. Yes, there’s a lot of gross and challenging stuff too, but it’s all par for the course.
In the process of completing school and gaining employment, I managed to fall off the paleo train. Unable to fit into half of my jeans/scrubs/tops, I vowed to do something.
So I did. I’ve had several stops and starts. I’ve failed more times then I’d like to admit. Paleo isn’t easy. It requires planning and perseverance. There have been times where I wake up, ready for a paleo day and fail by lunch. Or dinner. Or make it all the way to dinner and falter with a horrific snack.
Here I go again. I made it thru yesterday completely paleo and hope to do it again today. One day at a time is about all I can handle right now.
I could have waited for New Year’s Eve to make such sweeping changes. But why? So I can muddle thru Christmas and visiting with friends and family feeling uncomfortable in my clothes? No way.
I’ve made some other major changes recently that have allowed me to shed some emotional weight, and I’m feeling slightly more empowered than I have in months. I’m still a bit fragile, and feeling like an unsteady baby deer, but I need to get back to my healthy roots – I know paleo and lifting weights does that for me. I know that if I give myself the gift of health, I will feel a million times better all around.
The weights can wait a bit -one thing at a time. So here I go.
First step: throwing my scale away.
