I’m going to go out on a limb and be real right now. Transparency is key for increased vibrations.
Over the past 6 months, I have just been damn lazy. Lazy to eat the way I truly deserve to eat. Lazy to feel the way I want to feel. Lazy and distracted from all the outside factors that happens to us in our lives. Can you relate?
The recognition of emotional food triggers and habitual patterns that can push the subconscious mind towards sabotage. The structure, planning and discipline that comes with our actions and goals. These are the mental diamonds that hold so much value in our lives. These are the things that allow us to be empowered. These are the ways in which we take control of our health, body and mind.
The way I feel after 10 days of paleo brings me right back to the way I felt the past 2 years of studying, applying and eating paleo. Yeah, I feel like me again.
Discipline is truly the only freedom in life. No brownie, pizza or candy is ever going to taste as as empowered and liberating as healthy feels.
Be strong in your day, stay positive and let your heart guide you. Here are the top 6 ways to implement paleo now!
1. Know yourself
What foods or situations make you feel defeated? Your biology and psychology are no match for your hormones and primal desires. Willpower will always lose. Remove these foods, situations and people from your life that make you feel defeated and start winning again.
2. Vote for your health with your fork
You are the only one who decides what goes in your mouth. No one force feeds you. If you really don’t believe in GMO’s or abusing your body with toxic, immune system disrupting foods then just don’t buy them. You can only control yourself, so start doing it today and purchase only what foods truly serve you and your goals.
3. Be okay with not being perfect
There will be times that you make mistakes as you are not a robot. Be present in the moment of your mistake, and instead of feeling sorry for yourself or angry about how terrible you are, simply trace back the steps as to why you chose to give up your freedom. Was it stress from work? Did you forget to pack your food for the day? Did you forget your workout clothes? How can you do better tomorrow? The sun WILL come up in the morning and you will shine again.
4. Know, live and own up to your “WHY”
Before you thrown down your cookies and join a gym, meditate on why you are making changes in the first place. Your why has to be felt in your heart and validated by your every action. It is the reason you are breaking out of your comfort zone and what you can fall back on in times of stress. Oh, and there will be times of stress that will test you of course. We live in times of high stress. Messages that are simple, messages that are inspiring, messages that are life affirming, are a welcome break from our real lives. Make sure you know WHY you are doing what you do.
5. Surround yourself with people who support you
Positive energy yields positive energy. The only souls who get to share your private space outside of preexisting commitments are those who support and love you and your WHY. Avoid energy vampires, even if they have been in your life for years, or even still, if they are family.
6. Focus on how you want to feel
The more you create the reality of how you want to feel, the more it will happen. Your deep limbic system and it’s relationship to the prefrontal cortex can be trained for your happiness and goals just like you train a bicep with a curl. Focus on the outcome you desire and when adversity happens, fall back on your “why” and the pain you may have felt without the discipline that now guides you. You deserve to be what you want to be.
Thanks for reading; sometimes life gets deep.
Without struggle, there is no victory.
Go out there and win!

“Self-discipline is a form of freedom. Freedom from laziness and lethargy, freedom from the expectations and demands of others, freedom from weakness and fear—and doubt. Self-discipline allows a soul to feel their individuality, their inner strength, their talent. They become a master of, rather than a slave to, their thoughts and emotions.” -H.Dorfman
