Starting Over and Primal Lunches
Hubby and I were primal for a month or so, and for some reason (can't pinpoint why or exactly when) we fell off. It came gradually, I think, and I think it also had something to do with hubby being jobless for a month. I knew that if we "allowed" a little here or a little there, eventually we'd completely pick up old habits again...and now we have. And now we're both congested again, and feel like crap. Luckily neither of us have gained back the weight yet, but I can FEEL a difference (the bloated, heavy feeling).
I don't have a problem starting over, in the sense of actually just doing it, but I know that I have to completely break those nasty candy bar at 3:00pm every day kind of habits all over again. BUT, my biggest hurdle is that hubby is working again, which is a GREAT thing. But he's a plumber, and he's rarely in a place where he's able to take out a salmon and spinach salad and eat with a fork and comfortably eat his greek yogurt with a spoon. The easiest thing for him, is a sandwich (and usually he's so simple that's all he wants, nothing more). Am I overly concerned if he only eats 4 slices (two sandwiches made with that Orowheat flat bread rounds) of bread per day, if for breakfast and dinner he's all primal?
Hoping to find some new ideas for a primal blue collar lunch box. Thanks in advance for your input!
Now and then it is good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
