After shattering my kneecap in December, I lost a lot of motivation in regards to my health. Before the injury, I was in the best shape that I have been in a very long time.
As a way to cope with the added stress, I turned to food. The amount of comfort food that I ate was ridiculous. I went from having relatively little belly fat to stomach that I’d rather not admit to this day. My current weight is 164 pounds as of September 14.
Things need to change. I tried lowering my calories and did not change the type of calories that I eat. I know this isn’t the right way to do it. Little snacks here in there and candy at work has been counterproductive. No more excuses.
Starting tomorrow, September 15, 2014, I will start eating full throttle Paleo. This is work for me in the past. Due to the sheer rate of how fast my body converts carbohydrates into excess fat, I’m confident that I have metabolic syndrome. I no longer have the luxury of eating excessive processed foods, refined carbohydrates, and sugar-based products. In order to maintain good health I have to eat whole foods, meats and vegetables, and cook for myself as much as possible.
Today I choose to change. With my diet, the way I eat, it is all or nothing. Doing otherwise just doesn’t work. I can do this. I can get back in shape. I won’t let one accident hold me back.
In order to stay motivated, I am going to make the effort to blog more often. Here’s to better health.
