I guess this is a good place to start. I have been "mostly" primal for a while (since Feb 2010?), but the past 3 weeks I have really fallen off the wagon. We are living overseas for the summer and I have struggled to find foods that I like that are primal. One of my biggest obstacles right now is that I seem to struggle giving up running. I don't run a lot, but the 3 days a week I am going, on top of being pregnant and caring for a 1 year old AND walking for all of my errands is too much. For some reason I don't feel like giving it up. Anyway, I think it is a big obstacle for me because it is exhausting and making me want to load up on junky carbs. I do not need to lose weight (though, being pregnant I really don't want to over gain), but I would LOVE to feel better. I have been getting a lot of headaches lately because my diet is lousy. I also just feel kinda blah. I have never really felt this way, but my diet is so bad right now that I can assume that is the problem. So, I want to try to journal for a while and see how I do. I can say already that I won't be perfect, but I can try MUCH harder than I am. It is tough living overseas and being invited to certain work functions for my husband and to maintain 100% primal. Furthermore, when I strive for perfection with my diet, I tend to go way overboard to the point of crazy. I would love to just get back to where I was. So, as I sign off for bed tonight I am looking forward to starting a new week tomorrow and learning to let my body relax a little. I feel like I push it so hard to run and lift and I am overdoing it a bit much. I also need to feed it better . I think everyone in my household will appreciate a happier, healthier me.
