1) Entirely primal allowing for 5 cheat days. I figure this way I know in advance that I have these allotted cheats and will (hopefully) use them wisely. The once a week doesn't always work for me because sometimes cheats happen more than once a week and sometimes I use them just because they're there, so I figure 5 days this way I can judge whether or not something is really worth one of my cheat days. I have a few ones already planned out - 2 friends birthdays - but other than that I'm going to try to be strictly primal - that means no sugary shit and no dairy (with the exception of butter, because cutting that out was a MAJOR fail). I will also be detailing ALL my cheats here for accountability's sake. I figured out that when I stopped logging my food I started making more bad decisions because no one had to know about them. Alcohol COUNTS AS A CHEAT. that will be difficult. not like I am an alcoholic, but it's become more of a habit than I would like it to be.
2) Mental health - yoga and meditation every morning for at least 20 minutes yoga 5 minutes meditation. Time to get my head back on straight. I'm going to try to go for more yoga later in the day, but this is a way to at least get me going down that track again.
3) Exercise - walking every evening for at least a half hour after dinner. The past few days I've been walking with a friend at night, about 2 hours each night, and it's ridiculous how much better I sleep and how much less bloated I feel in the morning. Also, aim for more yoga and running a few times a week.
4) Sleep - get it. End of story.
