WooHoo! We’ve made it two weeks. On Wednesday, we’ll be halfway to our 5-week Get Fit as a Fiddle goal. Even if there have been slip-ups, “Oops – I just ate that entire chocolate bar”, or you only managed a couple of days of exercise, “I’m so tired” …Don’t give up. Dust yourself off, get back on the horse, and keep going.
I’ve discovered in working through this challenge, that it takes discipline in all areas of my life to reach the goal I’ve set for myself. If I don’t go to bed, I’m too tired to get up the next morning to exercise. If I’m tired all day, I don’t want to put in the extra effort to cook a healthy meal. And if I’m failing in meeting my goals, I just want to grovel and make myself “feel better” by eating comfort food, a.k.a., junk.
So, starting now, I’m going to go to bed at 10PM and wakeup refreshed at 6AM ready to conquer the day. It being 9:30pm now, I can’t get to bed by 10 if I spend the next two hours developing a meal plan. So after a quick google search for “paleo meal plans,” I discovered that I’m reinventing the wheel. There are GOBS of meal plans out there. The following two include recipes and grocery lists:
- The Food Lover’s Kitchen posted this 30-day meal plan
- The Paleo Table is on week 39 of their meal plans
I haven’t tried any of their recipes yet, but I will soon. Let me know what you think.
We’ll stick with The Get Mohr Fit 28-Day Paleo Challenge for our workouts. This week starts a whole new set of exercises.
