Life After Eat By Design

Yep, I am still going, and still going strong.

It will be 2 weeks tomorrow since I officially finished the challenge.  I said I would continue with the diet, and I have.  It doesn't even really feel like work anymore.  I still need to make sure I have lunches made etc, but I honestly think it has become a habit.

What do I need to work on now?
I need to cut down on the sugar.  Even though I am using natural sugar sources, I still eat quite a bit.  It is the Christmas season, and I love mandarin oranges (they aren't as good the rest of the year), so I am eating at least one a day.  Then I like to bake cookies so I have some paleo cookies, then I have developed a taste for dark chocolate, so I eat some of that.  What can I say,  I love my sweets!  It used to be a daily does of cake or cookies, so at least I am on the right track.

I need to work out more.  Something always seems to come up to get in the way of my workouts.  The baby has been really sick so I didn't go yesterday (that is a legit excuse).  Last Wednesday it was something, the week before it was the weather, the week before that my father-in-law was in town.  The excuses can go on forever.  It is hard to get some where when you are dependent on other people for you to be able to do it.

My Next Step?
Getting the baby to eat more by design.  I read the "why?" in my practical paleo book, and the more I read the more it makes sense.  She has been sick since we arrived in Alberta.  Obviously diet is not the only factor, I am sure there are some environmental factors, but diet is something I can have control over.

Anyways.... it will be a long night with my sick muffin, so I better get some rest!
