Currently listening to: “This is Why We Fight” by: The Decemberists
I have been living the Paleo lifestyle for over a month now for 2 reasons. To treat my psoriasis from the inside out and to help cure life long stomach issues. I can tell you this that I’ve never felt this good before. No more stomach issues, no more drops in energy and I just feel stronger and more awake. For the first several weeks though I did seem to get pretty grumpy when I was ready to eat. My son and wife will attest to that. I was a pinecone I’ll admit. But given the last two weeks I’d say I’ve seemed to be more balanced and less of a butt. Thankfully. Another positive I know my mom would be proud to know is I’m loving eating vegetables now. I can’t believe I just wrote that! Out of the many cookbooks we have acquired Mark Sisson’s “The Primal Blueprint; Quick & Easy meals” and “The Food Lovers; Make it Paleo Cookbook” have introduced us to a lot of amazing healthy meals! I’m talking really good! I’m even learning cook which is something I’ve always wanted to do. I wanted to be wise by the time I was 40. Nikki is already wise and well will be 40 before me. I’m on my way to being wiser and healthier. I got to say my family and friends have been a great support system which means more to me than they will ever know.
On Monday I started my 20 week training plan for my first 70.3 Ironman! I haven’t ridden my bike or swam since my last triathlon last Sept. With 1 week down I’m feeling pretty good and excited to continue the training and become a stronger, faster more complete Triathlete.
The Journey continues…
