There are times when I start blogging and I don’t know what I’m going to talk about. I’ve covered so many topics not just once but two or three times that I’m afraid of boring those who have been following my blog for a while. But then I realize that even though I may write about the same topic time and time again, I typically have a new angle or fresh perspective I share. Then, there’s also the fact that a lot of these topics bear repeating because they are important, and my revisiting them is not just for you, the reader, but for me as well.
There are times I want to revisit a topic or a theme because I need to reevaluate my own progress on this journey. I need to actively think about a certain aspect of Paleo or fitness to re-motivate myself or to remind myself of the reasons behind doing certain things. I figure that if I need these reminders, then certainly others do as well.
Eating healthy is a journey. While the rules are simple, the execution is not. Eating healthy isn’t always easy. For most of us, it’s constant work. Practicing restraint, preparation, and discipline. Lots of planning. Expense.
If you get anything out of these blog posts of mine, I hope it’s that you realize that this isn’t easy, but you can do it. Life doesn’t allow us to follow plans perfectly, and there are times when things get in the way and we face some temporary setbacks, but they are just that: temporary. My weight is finally in the range I am happy with (within 7-8 lbs of my final goal) and I am able to control my weight loss successfully through my strict adherence to the Paleo rules and portion control. I am active, and I exercise regularly. It’s not easy, but the formula is simple. Eat well + exercise = be healthy and fit. The hard part is making it happen, but you can do this. Just keep doing the best you can. That’s all we can hope for.
