It’s been close to a month since I started the Primal journey. I feel like a different person with much more energy and focus day-to-day. Plus, I’ve been trying to eat items that are organic, cage-free, or grass-fed. I can’t really tell a difference taste-wise, but I know they’re more nutritious.
It really hasn’t been that difficult choosing to eat Primal foods when I’m on my normal schedule. It’s more challenging, though, once my routine is thrown off. What I’ve realized, though, is that it’s totally okay to splurge every once in a while, as long as the 80%/20% rule still is into play. This really prevents binge sessions that completely derail all progress.
I’m staying consistent with losing about a pound a week, even with our recent vacation. I used to be irritated when my weight loss progress was this slow, but I’m totally okay with it now. I’m focusing on getting healthy first and weight loss second. Plus, my husband and I are training for a triathlon, so that’s motivating, too.
So, if any of you have any questions about how to begin your Primal journey, feel free to ask away! Not that I know everything about it, but I definitely would appreciate the opportunity to pay it forward. 🙂
