It's not September yet, but school is back in session, which means it's time for some sort of discipline again.
First off is going back to regular exercise. So I got up, had some breakfast, gave the kids a first-day-of-school pep talk ("seize the grade!"), and then went to spin class. I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, it was a gorgeous morning, so why wasn't I outside on my real bike breathing fresh air, instead of having orders barked at me in a too-dark, too-loud room full of sweaty people? On the other hand, though, I got a decent workout in a much shorter time this way (45 minutes—freaky). And in theory, if I stick with this class, those sweaty people could become my friends.
The other part of Phase 1 is getting off of sugar. I figure that will make any future Paleo eating (note vague wording) less of a shock to my system. Someone else is going to have to finish off that cake. Pringles are technically still legal.
P.S. If you're thinking of doing this with me, read the link in yesterday's post and start Googling Paleo recipes you think you can handle. There's lots of stuff we can still eat, but it's going to take planning. And shopping. And cooking. And creativity. And time. And willpower. And family cooperation. And probably other stuff I haven't thought of.
