On a week like this week, also known as final exam week, I actually had to dig deep for motivation to blog. All of my energy is currently channeling towards microbes and organic chemistry, but somehow this post is being written. I’ve found myself scheduling out every hour up until finals are over, and one hour was blocked out for Bravo For Paleo.
When my to-do list is never ending and my days are nonstop, I am thankful my body runs on real food. When times are stressful, we can sometimes turn to stressful eating. When I used to eat unhealthy food, stressful nights ended with a box of Cheerio’s sitting next to me (which I ate by the handful). The next day didn’t feel so great, and the cravings came again, even when the stress was gone. Now my relationship with food is dramatically different.
If you can’t find motivation to eat healthier, think about this one important aspect. Your day-to-day life will be easier, and you will feel better. For me this is one of the biggest reasons to live a Paleo lifestyle. I’m happier, more energized, and food is now fuel, not comfort.
