The Last 45

Today kicks off my last 45 days of my 90 day Paleo challenge. As previously stated, I don’t really keep it up after 30 days, but this time I’m going pretty strong. I actually love to cook so it isn’t a chore to me like some people. I also don’t have a microwave, so things don’t even get reheated easily. I really try to get rid of all of the terrible things from my diet. Even to the point of being aware of things like lotion and shampoo and the harmful toxins that they contain. Lucky for me my mom makes her own toiletries, and I am kept fully stocked! I know what is in my soap, deodorant, body oil, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc. How many of you can say the same? A friend of mine is a consultant for BeautyCounter. They are a company trying to change the way of the world through beauty products that don’t contain harmful things. I do have a lot of their products and they work wonderfully, but there is nothing better than saying “Hey mom, I really want this face oil but its really expensive, can you make it?” and then a couple minutes later she has a batch ready for you. At some point, I’m going to make everything. I will plant all of my food and use it to make other things too. I have this terrible craving to be a part of the dirt again. I haven’t really been that way since I was a kid. It is amazing how things have changed since the 80s in the access to the earth we have. Or at least me anyway. But I digress.

I’m sitting here killing time before my 8am weigh in at the gym. I just weighed myself at home and I’m at 271. I try really hard not to pay attention to scales. Today we’re also going to get our stats taken. He will measure how much of my body is fat, muscle, and the rest (bones, organs, skin, fluid, etc.). We are going to see what they are, and what they become in 30 days. Then there is a cash prize for who changes the most. I plan on getting paid. I’m probably the only one going there that is on a super strict eating regime anyway, and I’m pretty damn used to it at this point. I more than likely will never go back at this point. If I actually want to make it to 170lbs. That’s my goal. I think if I’m any smaller than that I might look pretty weird.

My mantra for the next 45 days is to not be afraid to fail. I will try. I will show up. I will allow myself to be scared and petrified of what will change in my life if I keep pushing myself toward better things. That is the only way, right? I’m not stressed about numbers. They will take care of themselves in the end. As long as I eat enough, sleep enough, and show up 4 days a week at Training for Warriors, then I’ll be set. It is all a crucial part of a pyramid that really works. I highly recommend it! 4-6-8 is the formula. 8 hours of sleep, 6 meals, and 4 days of training. The days that I don’t train I do yoga. All together I am creating a body that is limber, strong, and healthy.

Happy Saturday everyone! Remember that you’re worth the fight.
