So clearly the “planning” stage is where my efforts are needed right now. As I mentioned, I’ve gotten all caught up in the Paleo diet cooking side of things, and dropped the ball the last week on the Primal Blueprint (which will now be referred to as PB cause I’m lazy) importance of balance and including exercise into the routine as well. It’s a blessing and a curse really, I’m the kind of person who commits to something 100% when I decide it’s worth while. The problem can present itself in the early stages though when I lose sight of everything else that’s super important as well. One thing I’ve tried hard not to let slip (post-inventory mayhem) has been my girl… I’ve been getting her involved in my cooking addiction and we’ve had some fun with it 🙂 So, last week I felt like I was cheating on my chick with my kitchen and paleomg.com, and this week I’ve been cheating on the gym!! I will figure it all out at some point though, I promise! :-p
Part of the reason I’ve been accepting of my lack of complete butt kicking workouts this week has been the Goodlife 5km run Ange and I are doing tomorrow. It’s only my second time doing any sort of “race” thing, and Ange’s first 🙂 Should be fun I hope! I’ve allowed myself to slip back into the “chronic cardio” routine for the last week, which is anti-PB, but I’m over it. Today I’m going back to the drawing board. I’m going to make a plan of food I can cook, hopefully tomorrow, to freeze for lunches and dinners for the week ahead. I’m going to plan out my workout days too so I can get back to kicking my butt (totally a favourite activity, cause I’m just sick and twisted like that). AND I’m going to figure out what goal to set for myself for the month of May. April was a success with my goal to complete 5 chin-ups consecutively… actually made it to 6 (that’s right ;-)).
Another thing I hope to improve soon is this boring, picture less rant I’ve been on lately. I’m a photographer and work in a camera store, yet rarely post any pics! FAIL. Everything’s better with images… It’s amazing though, when you become a photographer, suddenly you are less inclined to take a snap shot… everything feels like it has to be a masterpiece.
