Today is day one of my Zero Excuse challenge .
The diet Rich wants us to follow is Paleo.
I’m not liking it one bit. There’s a reason I’ve never considered Paleo, I know it is not for me. It is too restrictive for me and I don’t do well with restrictions. Not many people do.
All I can think about are the foods I cannot have. Honestly all I want right now is a big ol bowl of pasta with tons of cheese and garlic bread on the side. And ice cream. And not ice cream I have to make with non dairy items.
Ya, I’m being a bit stubborn. Maybe even a bit whiny….Lol.
I just don’t want to spend the next few weeks thinking of things I can’t have. I don’t want to give up my mayo or ketchup and I don’t want to make it either.
I just have a feeling that I’m going to get off this Paleo diet in a few weeks and totally go overboard. I know how I am with restrictive diets, that’s why Weight Watchers worked for me.
Now I’m not going to throw in the towel yet. I’m going to follow Paleo as best as I can. But I’m not going to restrict myself only to sababtoge myself later.
I know me, I know my body. And Paleo isn’t going to make me happy. Why make myself miserable for the next few weeks?
Sorry, I’m not sorry.
What about you, are you stubborn?
What are your thoughts on Paleo eating? Any tips?
