    Started on 12/3!

    I say "starting", but it's really "restarting." I ate pretty strict Paleo for years, and did a "whole 30" type of thing long before I knew it was a thing, for 8 months prior to trying to conceive. It worked, I got pregnant very quickly, and almost immediately fell off the wagon. The pregnancy and first year of baby-rearing were very hard for me, and I was in survival mode just trying to get through the days. The kid is now 3 and I'm ready to get back on the wagon. I kinda eased into it for a week prior to the official start, so I've been at it for 10 days now. Even after these few days, it just feels natural. Really, if you think about it, it's just "eat real food". No fake processed crap, no weird chemical ingredients that didn't even exist 100 years ago - just real food. It's kinda sad that we live in such a sick culture that just the simple act of eating the food that is natural for Homo Sapiens requires a trademark, a justification, and a "special diet" label, whereas the act of eating processed yuck is just "normal eating". It's backwards. I don't need to lose any weight, but I have some skin issues that are already clearing up, so I'm happy. My spouse is joining me on the program. The kiddo is not, though she is eating more veggies these days.
