$1 PALEO BOOK SALE! + The List Of Things I’ll Never Get Done, The List of Things That Go On and On…

I’m making this post for two reasons:

  • I
  • Like
  • Jot
  • Notes

And there’s just too much going on right now that my thoughts are just so scattered I can’t talk coherently.

Before I dive into my verbal blurb, I just want to let ya’ll Fitties(that’s you guys, hello.) know about a particular book sale event coming up on November the 25th. As you know, I’ve been fond of the keto-paleo diet for years but officially started this summer. I know some of you who follow my journey are paleo and/or low carb yourselves so I’d think this sort of thing would interest you, or if you’re neither then there’s no harm in taking a look anyway, as I’m sure you can benefit from the delicious, all natural, health-friendly recipes. Besides…all their books are 99 CENTS EACH! I don’t even purchase cookbooks, but I can’t pass on a great deal like this. The content in these books are worth $20-$40 in book stores. Guys, this is like…99% off. What. The. Heck. We’re talking authors from the paleo giants of the paleo community here, including Mark Sisson, Robb Wolf, Stacy Troth, Sarah Fragaso…

20% OFF MY FAVOURITE KETO&PALEO TREAT:

Overall:

just balancing my school life, fitness, and personal well-being is hard. The vigorous hours of drama rehearsals(I don’t even have Saturdays off to myself anymore!) paired with feeling emotionally low turns into a low drive to even attempt to get any work done at all, and in addition pushes my exercise time back which pushes blogging schedule back, which pushes sleep time.

See? It’s a domino effect. And it all starts with school. To be honest, I often like to start the day off with the things I need to get done before I get on with things I should get done and then the things I want to do. But when I look at this list, I can’t being myself to cross off a single thing(okay, except maybe the seafood, but I am not eating enough food with cholesterol so that deteriorates my health…). Have you checked out what I do in a day?

Let me tell you why everything on that list is so important.

School is paramount. This year’s marks have never been so important all throughout high school because this the final year I get to make an impression on the universities and colleges I apply to. Next, exercise and wellness is what I live and breathe and keeps me sane, so cutting out working out, cooking, and sleep is not an option. “Me” time, relax and recreation, is something I wish I had, or wish I didn’t feel rushed doing, as it’s often tossed around and determined by my hectic life. I’ve read an article interviewing some of the best holistic experts and they emphasize the importance of having scheduled “me time”, a sacred time for just you to kindle yourself. It’s a practice that can change your life by affecting how you perform in many aspects of life, such as relationships, confidence, and stress.

Misty morning.

I mean, I try to get out when I can to add in some exercise and fit in some “me” time, but it always feels rushed, which isn’t therapeutic at all.

I’m very unsure how I’ll find a way to balance out my life enough to take a breather, and I’m feeling undeniably low about all of this conundrum.

Do you have any ideas how I could balance all of my priorities on this list?

What changes do you make to your life, or what do you do when you are under a lot of stress?

What do you do when you feel emotionally low?

Will college or university life be a little more settling?



  • I totally feel you! I’m a list person but after I’ve written one out I get so overwhelmed with everything I have to do that I just panic! When I’m feeling down, I try to make time for something I know will cheer me up- seeing my best friend, watching Friends, baking etc! It’s important to take out a few minutes a day and just breathe and not worry about everything! School and home life sometimes make it really hard to keep up with everything in life but just remind yourself that you aren’t superwoman and you won’t get everything done all the time, which is ok!! Life goes on no matter what we’re doing, so take a deep breathe and then carry on 🙂

  • Thanks for the link to the book sale! I will be joining the email list to be notified. I’ve been wanting to explore more about the paleontology diet and have many friends that ask about it often.

    As for your current conundrum with balancing life and struggling, I definitely understand. The main thing I can tell you is to trust the process and just keep your head up because it will work itself out in the end. I learned so much about myself and what’s important in my life in the span of time between transitioning to college and the fist couple years there. It’s a journey and you have to trust yourself to get through it.

    Thanks for the info on the book sale!

  • When you say “seafood and cholesterol foods” what do you mean? Eating cholesterol doesn’t give you high cholesterol…

  • I can totally relate. I feel like I’m drowning at the moment trying to balance everything going on in my life! Today I will be working for 12 hours and I somehow have to fit a two hour training session in there, in between a two hour commute. Ugh! That’s a great deal – I’m definitely signing up!

    I find treating “me time” like an appointment helps ie making it a priority I won’t cancel on. Much of the time, that could just mean working out which works doubly by also letting me meet my fitness needs. Although easier said than done,try not to overthink it- everything will soon fall into place!

  • GlutenFreeHappyTummy

    i think the best thing on your list is to get 9 hours of sleep a night. it’s my saving grace!
