So how difficult is it to stick to the paleo diet plan while traveling for work? I’m about to find out. My plan is simple. I’m going to do the best I can given the circumstances and remember that it’s better to eat something than to skip meals.
And since I was curious, I did a little research on Austin. It turns out there is actually a paleo restaurant a few miles from where I’ll be staying. It’s called Picknik, and the menu looks quite appetizing. Guess who will be trying it out!
The other thing I’ll be missing out on is my weekly tumbling class, so I’ll have to figure out a way to get some exercise in during my stay. I’m sure I’ll make a trip to Town Lake for a run/walk, but I’m also hoping to get in some stand-up paddle boarding or kayaking. More to come on that later…and hopefully I can take some pics to spice up this blog a bit.
As you may have gathered from yesterday’s post about my first (paleo) meal, I’m not a fan of the typical, awkward first post on a new blog. So I’ll go ahead and explain my blog title a bit more in this one…
Get Out and Paleo was something I came up with as I was thinking about the ways that I plan to get myself healthy again. There are three main tactics to my plan:
- Find fun ways to exercise. e.g., “get out and play”
- Go paleo.
- Find ways to de-stress. Hence the creative outlet of having a blog. Writing every day keeps the doctor away (or something like that).
All of those things together = Get Out and Paleo.
Okay. Now that you have that explanation, it’s on to the first fun method of exercise I’ll share with ya’ll. Tumbling. Yes, as in gymnastics. My boyfriend and I have been going to a local gymnastics center for about a year now to help us get in shape. We attend an adult tumbling class that includes a 30 minute strength training session at the end. It’s once a week, but we sometimes go to Sunday open gyms too…because it’s so much fun!
Don’t believe me? Watch this video and reconsider. Oh, and then get out there and have some fun the old-fashioned way — like a kid!
