“Coach” – known around the globe as an award-winning track coach and long distance runner, is my guide on the path to learning and applying the paleo lifeway. The book he recommended for me to read is FINALLY in hand. It took a while for my order to arrive due to a high volume of sales. Clearly, I’m not the only soul on earth seeking a better way to care for myself and I find that encouraging.
While waiting for my new book I did some research and know that some of my favorite foods are about to be evicted from the premises, banned from my house, and I’m moving slowly toward embracing this fact.
I’m a huge fan of someone’s bottled coffee drink, which I buy in cases and drink a bottle almost every morning mixed with regular brewed coffee. I know this routine will have to change and during the first weeks of applying my new diet I will need to avoid it completely. I’m thinking one day a week, probably Sunday, I’ll allow myself a splurge or two once I’ve made it past the first hurdle. Let me get back to you on this.
A classic chocoholic, with a enabling spouse, I know that dark chocolate can be good for the body as well as the soul so I hope to factor in this essential treat as well. I can say that since Christmas I’ve cut way back on the chocolate covered peppermint Jo Jos, eaten more meat, and I’ve lost 4 pounds.
Well, I started the book last night and I’m giving most of tomorrow to ride my reading chair and take in as much as possible. I feel like its time, 10 days into the new year, to make this happen. My first goal, to shop for grass-fed meat and organic veggies, discuss boundaries with hubby, and start the diet on Monday.
How about you? What is your first goal. Is anyone out there?
