It could always be harder. It is what you make of it. So, I decided to re-group, and be positive. Be stoked that I got to hang out with a girlfriend and workout twice this week with her (I don't think I would have had the courage to attend an 'Olympic lifting' class without her).
Really stoked that bacon is not a forbidden food. Also excited that Trader Joe's loves me enough to keep the costs affordable for uncured pork bacon goodness.
Excited that I discovered a tonic water that has agave nectar and no chemicals or corn syrup. While this may not allow me to continue my gin-and-tonic tradition while eating 'paleo', it gets me one step closer with silver tequila and a lot of lime.
