Quit looking in your rear view mirror at the old you and stop dreaming about what you’re missing. We’ve all had a moment where we desperately miss something; pizza, fried chicken, ice cream, pasta, candy……Everybody has their vice. Now ask yourself what you gain by taking that crap out of your life? Better energy, a clearer mind, better sleep, lower rates of countless diseases, longevity, self-confidence, look better naked (isn’t that pretty much everybody’s goal at the end of the day?)
But life is short, you say. What about quality of life? Well to that I say what about coconut curry, steaks cooked in butter, slabs of bacon, chicken salad, dark chocolate and red wine. Sound tasty? All totally acceptable/healthy foods. But you need cupcakes to live and live well? No, you don’t. But if you get your diet locked down, just google gluten free/paleo cupcakes or get a hold of my FAVORITE cookbook, “Make It Paleo”. You can have your gluten-free cake, and eat it too! You’re not too busy to eat well or spend some time preparing those healthy meals; I promise you watch far too much tv to make that a valid claim. Got a family to feed? Check out cavemomma and everyday paleo for awesome quick recipes to feed a whole family of picky eaters. Got any more excuses? Just post them below and we’ll get you a solution.
Start thinking like the person you want to be, start making the decisions he/she would make, and quit looking at the old, sick, fat, tired, (insert other crappy feeling you’ve had in the past) you in the rear-view mirror. Leave that lazy bones in the dust and start living the life you deserve!
Leave me some comments below on what you miss and get it ALL out of your system and let’s move on with a new year and a new you!
