So, this is what happens when I attempt to do paleo for a couple weeks. I suck with willpower. I can go about a week without any cheats, but when I do take even the smallest step off the no sugar wagon, I fall head first into Ben and Jerry’s. Or wine. Or a basket of tortilla chips with queso. Or attacking a birthday cake at a party.

Driving across America. Again.

And the funny thing is, the next day I feel so miserable, I swear it will never happen again. Come to find out, changing behaviors is hard. And sticking with this diet is great. More energy, clearer skin, skinny pants. It really does work when you can tell yourself no.

  1. But oh man, saying no is hard!!!

  2. Changing behaviors is SO hard. Especially food behaviors. I’m reading a book called The Power of Habit in the hopes that I can understand why some of my habits are so tough to change! Glad to know I’m not the only one.

  3. Oh I am so with you with the cake…definitely trying to go Paleo…you are my inspiration…and clearly my partner in crime if we ever came in contact with a birthday cake! 🙂

  4. Even living mostly paleo is still a good thing!

    When you learn the secret to saying “NO” to the occasional sugar fest, please let us know! It is hard, but it wouldn’t be worth the reward if it wasn’t, right??
