When I told family & friends that I was turning over a new leaf & starting my PALEO MANILA diet, many did not believe & laughed outright in my face. Even Kap. I can’t say that I blame them. They’ve seen how I eat. But one thing they didn’t anticipate was what a rebel I am.
You see, the more you say that I can’t do it, the more I wanna prove you wrong. And I actually have to give them credit for my new lifestyle change because they forced me to disprove them.
Now pushing on my 8th week, I am definitely proving to everyone that I’m in this for the long haul. For as long as it takes. My only concern is that, it IS taking a long time for me to get back in shape. Longer than I anticipated.
Aside from the age factor, and my hypothyroid condition, it’s been years & years of abuse that I’ve put my poor body through. Of course I can’t expect that I’ll shed the pounds easily. I can’t see results I want in a snap. The length of time I have abused my body is equal the length of time it will take to correct my erring ways & get to my ideal weight. So I need to be patient. One day at a time is my mantra. It’s better to be safe & do this slowly but surely, than quickly & sorry.
My Week 7 Paleo Manila diary. I just have to say, I salute the PALEO MANILA team for making every effort to kick up the food they ration to us. Every day, I wake up excited & eager to see what my friends sent for the day. It’s just like opening presents at meal time since every serving is a surprise.
One more week of reporting & I can’t wait to show you how loose my shorts have become. YAY! <3 I now need a belt. YES! ;)
