Let's just say this week has involved some emotional eating that hasn't been Paleo. Lifestyle changes involve bumps in the road though so rather than beating myself up I am learning from these mistakes and moving on. It seems like when I am running short on time or in different situations then usual I break away from Paleo and eat junk! I think it is important to think about your actions,even if you aren't happy or proud of them to figure out why you did what you did.
I now know that I need to really think about my day and plan my food specifically for busy days otherwise I will hit a drive thru, order pizza,or just eat junk. Understanding why I chose to do what I do really helps me learn from my experiences and improve. Completely changing your diet lifestyle isn't an easy task and I am learning that now. It takes time to adjust. The key for me is making it a daily habit to make the right food choices and rather than just eat junk. Taking the time to make an effort is half the battle.
Meal plans help me a lot but there are still times when I just am not feeling what I had planned. I am finding that too many days of the same leftovers gets old. I need to adjust my meal plans to include fewer meal repeats so that I will be more willing to stick to my plan.
So whatever you are doing to improve your lifestyle just keep pushing even if you have a bad meal, day,or week. Get back at it and soon enough you will have more good meals,days,weeks then bad.
