New Rules to Live By

IMG_3305

I, Hannah, of sound body and mind do post these rules under the new acknowledgement that my body is a temple and is to be treated as such. I acknowledge that I can fail as a human and fall into the temptation to be self loathing and overly critical to the body I have been given and this is a post in good faith that I will learn to love my body just as it is for what it is
simply a useful container for a beautiful and eternal soul.

1. No more pinching fat to see if it’s still there — it either is or it’s not.

2. I’m going to eat with enthusiasm the food that gives me energy to carry on the life I love — occasionally this will include chocolate and wine and that’s not something to go on a guilt trip about.

3. I’m going to exercise to keep strength in the body so that when I say “Here am I, Lord, send me” I will be physically strong enough to go wherever that may be.

4. I will take rest days and let my body recoup.

5. I will be kind to myself and to others as we all walk the pathways set down for us.

6. I will refuse negative talk about my body, and help people around me refuse such talk about theirs — self criticism is only a downer.

7. For every negative word said about any body around me I will find five positive things to say.

8. I will eat cake when the occasion is right, and I will enjoy the crap out of it

9. I will stop complaining whenever something hurts — it’s annoying and it doesn’t get me anywhere

10. I will surround myself, fill myself, and help others find: JOY in themselves, in God, in life.

Things New Paleo People Say

1. When will our 25 lbs of almond flour get here?!

2. Is there some sort of limit on nuts or can I just… [demolishes a handful in two seconds]

3.I know there is a way to make pancakes — there has to be.

4. Steak for breakfast, Steak for Lunch, Steak for Dinner.

5. If we call beer a “recovery drink” we’ll call it not a cheat after a hike, yes?
(The answer is yes)

6. [creepy child voice] I love broccoli…

7. ugh, I need to crossfit more… I feel all weak.

8. Don’t tell anyone we made those grain free cookies — we eat all the cookies!

9. What haven’t we tried bacon on yet?

10. This whole “Paleo” thing it’s one of those 80/20 theories — right? RIGHT?!

So much healthy fun
