Why Weight Loss Bores Me!

I’m just going to put it out there, if I’m being completely transparent, I just am NOT a fan of measuring your goal or success by how much you weight. Nope, nada, no.

Paleo Mag Feature

The Paleo diet has gotten a bad rap for being a boring, bland diet that is much too simple for our complex taste buds. When in reality, it's simply stripping down the crap that has made it's way into our diet over the years. Going Paleo allows our bodies to get back to the basics of functioning off of real, nutritious food. Interestingly enough, we see this concept in our daily lives as well. Everyone is afraid to simplify their lives, in fear that they will become bored or be perceived as a boring person. The question is, when did boredom become a negative thing? Why is everyone so fearful of boredom in their diet and life?
