I woke up with a new outlook and excited to make some changes. I primped, I paleod (not a word, i know), and a struggled at the end. A recap of my day:
Primp: 8:30 hair appointment at my favorite Aveda salon. I adore all things Aveda, but my husband complains about the cost, so I only get my hair done about 3 times a year. Today was highlights and a cut. PM Hatha Yoga to end it all. Pure Bliss.
Paleo: I did pretty well considering I haven’t gone grocery shopping yet.
egg + 2 egg whites
Iced green tea
Snack: Summer Fruit Cup from Panera
Turkey avocado & bacon on mixed greens. EVOO and vinegar drizzle. Amazing!
Snack: 10 Pistachios + raspberries
chicken breast with romaine, baby carrots, garlic, and EVOO drizzle
And now the downfall…a few licks of my husbands ice cream. But on the plus side the guilt i felt made me believe the ice cream wasn’t all that good. Lesson learned: guilt = minimized cheating.
All I can do is try to improve and build on each day.
So the Big 30 was on Monday and I can’t say i feel any older. I am starting this blog to document my journey to Primpin and Paleo. Let me explain…
There was once this girl name Nicole who actually looked cute on most occasions. Hair fixed, makeup done, cute outfit. Now I was never a fashionist; matching navy, white, and gray is why I still shop at Abercrombie. BUT I did look cute. Somewhere along the way i lost that part of me. That’s right, I lost the Primp.
There is now this girl Nicole who I know, but I don’t really like her very much. She’s tired all the time, grumpy and irritable (especially to her loving husband), is up to 130 lbs, and finds little joy in the things she once loved. My kids and husband never know my mood and probably walk on egg shells around me.
I am convinced I suffer from Adrenal Fatigue. I was once diagnosed with it a few years back and all the signs and symptoms have returned. This is where the Paleo comes in.
Everything I read revolves around this way of eating. To feel better and look better I know i must give it a try. So here is my leap into Primpin and Paleo. Follow my journey, comment, and inspire me if you’d like.
