I thought it was all figured out. Through my own self diagnosis, I thought I had issues with gluten. WRONG! Even without the gluten, I still had my issues. So, here I am again, at a loss. I have been trying to stay away from it now primarily for the fact that it usually just is a carrier of unnecessary carbs...so I still am watching my intake on that.
For about a week or so I had been on a paleo diet, which for the most part, is just eating clean and staying away from any type of grains. Overall, it isn't really that difficult, but it can take quite a bit of planning. I have a busy schedule so sometimes carving out a few hours on the weekend to prep food can be more than I can allow. I try to keep my daughter busy outside doing something. I hate to have her sit at home, bored, while I work in the kitchen. Not fair to her, not good for me to not spend some time with her. But I go on.
Over the last few days I have allowed myself the occasional piece of bread. I still grab the goldfish when I am looking for a quick to grab snack. I have always known that an exercise routine won't do any good unless you eat healthy along with it. Nutrition is just as important as the exercise is. What we need to understand is that we need to find something that we can stick to long term rather than for a few days....because face it, if you can't last more than a week, is it really something you are going to stick to for a lifetime? Start making healthier choices, grilled chicken rather than fried, parmesan cheese rather than cheese sauce. The smallest of changes can start a whole world of difference in not only yourself, but those around you. They will turn in to something you will do automatically sooner rather than later.
Be the positive change for you, your family and your friends.
