Habits…Part 2.  Last week I wrote about incorporating habits into my world to help me be a more fit person.  This week, I’m going to write about the habits that I really, really need to work on, my eating habits.

 

Here’s the scoop…on the days that I’m practicing (seeing patients, completing treatments, basically “in the mouth” which I LOOOOVE soooo much) I keep my patients at the very top of my priority list.  Eating (and hydrating) goes to the wayside.  And I know that’s not good.  I’m a doctor.  I don’t take the time to nourish or hydrate my body.  And that’s the habit that I’m TRYING to add to my life.

 

I’m keeping up with my exercise habit.  On Tuesdays & Thursdays I train at home with a trainer.  Oh man, I feel myself getting stronger already and it’s only been 3 weeks!  Oh, and did I mention I also train on Saturdays as well?  I’m thinking I might have abs by spring break!  🙂

 

So back to food…My trainer suggested that I eat a paleo diet.  I’m already a pescatarian.  (Not sure what that is?  I don’t eat meat, but I do eat fish!)  He thought it would be great if I could stay away from grains, dairy, and soy.  It sure limits what a pescatarian can eat!  I know I need to incorporate meals and snacks- it’s so hard to do.

I found a local shop that prepares paleo-meals-to-go called KitchFix  .  It’s a good solution for me for a few reasons.  One is that they deliver (you just have to plan ahead, it’s not like a quick pizza delivery service) and two is that they have a storefront location on the Gold Coast that has a wide variety of foods and they can even make some smoothies if you’d like!

 

I’m not 100% sure I’m sticking with a purely paleo diet, but I can tell you, I’m trying to make sure I eat as clean as possible.  I would LOVE your recipes, if you care to share them!

 

Wish me luck with my habits…I’ll keep you posted on how it’s going!
