I feel like I hear a lot about cheat days, post-cheat day (guilty) IF, and generally bumming out over circumstances beyond our control. I just felt I needed a moment to be more grateful for the times, or weekends, where I am able to remain mostly primal. Its impractical to expect to be perfectly primal all the time. Even if we buy and cook tons of organic, hormone free, chicken, wild caught salmon, and grassfed, local beef at home, sometimes we find ourselves at a tex mex joint for Sunday lunch with family. While the options may not be perfectly primal, and the temptations (chips and salsa!) little higher, we should embrace the other aspects of PB more readily--Enjoying Life. While within the Primal Blueprint that specifically means a healthy life, we quickly find out that a healthier life is a happy life. The vibrance and energy the primal eating style puts in life gives me piece of mind that I am nourishing my body and thriving, not just surviving. Being with family is more important that remaining 100% primal, and it is in these types of human interactions (especially in the age of facebook, and discussion forums , that we realize that personal happiness is what really matters. I embrace the 80/20 rule and dont dwell on perfection. I managed to remain pretty primal this weekend. And Im proud of myself. Just wanted to post something positve and to remind us to be proud of ourselves and grok on!
No announcement yet.
a little positivity....
