Hiiiiiiiiiii! It’s Sara! I just flew back from NYC last night. I drove right over to see my little meatball as soon as I got home. You don’t realize how much you rely on your accountability buddy until you guys spend some time apart. Also, I usually go to Bumble and bumble for class with her so everything was off! But I still managed to have an amazing time with my super supportive and hilarious boss, Joelle. Sooooooo, the big question…how did Paleo go on the road?! Well I would say that I stuck to an 80% Paleo diet and a 20% when in New York mentality. I indulged when something was really calling to me and I tried to split everything with Joelle to stay on budget and to not revert to my old ways. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it yet, but I gave up drinking for 2 months so I can really stay focused. Drinking is a really bad trigger for me…for EVERYTHING! I want to smoke when I drink…I want to eat everything in sight and worst of all I want to keep drinking! Then fast forward to the next day. I feel like shit and I want to lump around and eat EVERYTHING IN SIGHT and drink all the soda in the world. So this was the first time in the city, not drinking, on a budget, trying to eat healthy aaaaaaand trying to exercise (who am I?!?!). Oh yeah and go to a really challenging class “Fierce Conversations” at Bb.U. I slightly failed with the budget when I traded in my recyclables at MAC…even with the free lipsticks I still found several things that I simply couldn’t live without…every girl needs a Lorde lip right guys?!?! But overall I think it was a smashing success and I learned some very valuable lessons. When I stray from the things that make me feel good when I eat them and flirt with the things that make me feel bad (brown rice, bread, cheeeeese, sweets and even coffee) I really feel terrible! My allergies have been so amazing lately and the moment I made different decisions…I paid for them! Being in a big city does allow for lots of walking so the exercise helped balance me out but, I’ve been stuffy and had a headache all day! Lesson learned! Hopefully I can remember that next time. It feels great to be home and feel a little more in control of what goes into my body. Missed you guys…xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
