My husband and I started eating more Primal after Taryn was born. We've kept it up for the last 3 months. We hardly have had any 'cheats'. A couple beers here and there, a bottle of spaghetti sauce (for primal meatballs) with soy bean oil, and a little bit of cake at my cousins wedding (only I had it, so technically my husband and son didn't cheat then ;).
But we're up for another challenge. The big 30 day challenge starts on Monday on Marks Daily Apple. Another chance to embrace the primal lifestyle. We've pretty much got the diet part down, so we're going to have to see what we can improve on in the other aspects of our lives to be more primal.
A few goals I have thought of...
-Make sure the room is dark when we sleep. As well as trying to turn down/off lights at night.
- More moderate exercise. We could use a better routine. I don't want to push myself too much yet. I'm just focused on nursing right now. But I could do better at walks or some light weights.
-My husband wants to lower his blood pressure a bit.
- Less stress. I lowered my stress last week by not trying too hard to change our schedule.
I'm sure we'll think of more this month too.
I can't believe how much being primal has really improved our lifestyle. We eat better. We have more energy. We budget better because we want to have money for the best foods. My son eats well, very well. He doesn't want sugar or other nasty kids snacks. He's ripped. And (knock on wood) haven't gotten sick in a while.
So here's to another primal challenge!
