Life of a busy barista trying to be healthy.

So this year has been a bit of a struggle to be the good doctors wife and maintain a “paleo lifestyle”. But the last 2 weeks i’ve been good, pretty pretty good (said in Larry Davids voice). I’ve succumbed to bread twice and felt like shit, and instantly went “woah, ok, it tastes yummo, but my tummy says hell no” I’ve actually trimmed down quite a bit in thee old stomach region, which is always a plus. But i have been hoeing into lollies (I’m a bad bad girl). Im petrified that one day someone will congratulate me on my pregnancy, when actually its just wheat belly with a dash of cadbury chocolate. Oh i’d just die, after maybe throwing a punch. But to be honest, I’m pretty confident in my skin and body, hey i may be a size 12/14 but shit who cares?! I feel healthy and thats the main thing. A lot of females get caught up in being “skinny”, where i think we should focus on feeling healthy. I just love the clarity of my brain from being wheat free, i do kinda hate “paleo” being thrown around, it sounds like a fad diet, where really i just want to try and eat as real as possible.

Hubby and i have big foodies, like LOVE FOOD! Having worked in the hospitality industry for 18 years its defiantly part of me now, so when it comes to eating out, we don’t stick to clean eating 100%, but will try as much as possible. I don’t want to be that wanker at a restaurant thats all like “omg we like totally don’t eat blah blah blah, don’t you know its rahdidrahrah for you.” Its not up to us to throw our eating beliefs down the throats of other people. I’d be highly pissed off if ANYONE pushed what THEY believe onto me. Plus every now and again a big bowl of Pho aint gonna kill ya, and as if you’d turn down a delish bowl of ramen. So i think if you can pull off 80% awesome eating you’re on the right track!

Ah, its time to start again. But like hell i’ll give up my cafe latte.

God only knows why this year has been such a freaking debacle to stay paleo! I’ve been shit. Absolute shit. I’d be good for a few days start to feel bubbly and alive and then succumb to crap food. I’ve never ever been 100% i still like to imbibe with fine wine and delightful food, but its really been 2 years since i’ve been eating such shit. My sweet tooth is back with vengeance (and yes i know why) but alas i still almost feel confused when my need for sugar is so high i’d sacrifice my first born for a lick of cadburys chocolate (lucky we don’t have children and I’m not with child, because I’m pretty sure we’d have the DOCS on our case.) Every morning i wake up and think… TODAY IS THE DAY IM GOING TO FUCKING EAT LIKE A CHAMPION! No bread, no processed crap, no sugar, never ever will i give up my one latte a day. EVER! I’d rather stab my own eyeballs than rid my routine of my beautiful creamy breakfast latte (made by moi of course). But when did i become a slave to shit food? And in saying that, i know my diet by far is way way WAY better than 60% of the population, but I’m still in struggle town.

So the last seven days have been better than usual, today i slipped up. But heck tomorrow is another day and another fresh beginning. I started personal training last week, so that’ll whip my arse into gear. And its just what i need. Once the fitness comes back the urge to eat crap dissipates. So fingers crossed my next blog update will be all about how “IVE KICKED ARSE AND TURNED INTO A PALEO SUPERHERO!”

 

Anyone else struggling out there? Need a caveman hug??
