Real Talk 1: One month of not HITTing so hard

So, as any of you reading my blog probably noticed, I took a whole month’s hiatus! Yes, I was very busy with work and new responsibilities in my personal life, but no, it was not a valid excuse to stop blogging. Being on here keeps me accountable each week: of my Paleo lifestyle, of my fitness goals, and overall of what I plan to accomplish within the next few years.

I will be posting a recipe for chicken sopa, as well as a partner leg workout that I wrote a couple of weeks ago, but first it’s confession time.

  1. I’ve had dairy products, some bread, corn (as you’ll see in my upcoming post), and ICE CREAM. I’d like to blame it on my sisters and husband being off for summer vacation, but honestly, it’s a matter of will power. But I’m ready to get back in the game!
  2. Though I’ve been working out between 2-4 days each week, they haven’t all been the long/intense workouts like I’d like them to be. Sometimes I’d just stick to the Transformer challenge (which I finished, by the way!) and call it a night. Not effective for maintaining, by any means.
  3. Did I mention I had ICE CREAM? A treat every once in a while isn’t so bad, but when committing to a lifestyle choice like Paleo, Whole-30, or 80/20, it’s not good to let yourself waiver too much. You start getting comfortable with your cheat meals/snacks and before you know it, it’s an every day occurrence!
  4. My cardio isn’t as great as I’d like it to be, mostly because I haven’t been running longer than 10 minutes at a time. I’m going to work on it!

Thanks for letting me vent. Are there times you fell off your personal wagon? What motivated you to try again?

Stay tuned for recipes and fitness challenges, coming soon!
