Ooooh, I LOVE this question!
Lots of people keep journals with systematic diary entries, but I understand that it doesn’t work for everyone.
Here are some cool/interesting/fun/motivational/productive things you can do that don’t necessarily include keeping a diary:
- Turn a Moleskine (or other notebook) into a planner/organizer/PDA/productivity system
- 52 lists
- 30 Days of Lists
- Answer "50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind"
- Start a gratitude journal
- Create a "life handbook"
- Keep morning pages
- Start a scrapbook
- Use journal prompts to answer questions when you feel like it
- Participate in the 7-week Life Cleanse
- Keep these 9 lists updated — REALLY useful things to keep track of!
- Take notes as you learn something new
- Use a notebook to keep track of goal-setting and productivity: 60 Ways to Improve Your Life in 100 Days
- Keep a recipe book
- Keep a reading journal/movie journal/music journal/fashion journal
- Start a quote book
- Make a travel journal — use it to plan your trip/vacation, then glue in transportation ticket stubs, itineraries, maps, photographs, dinner receipts at fancy restaurants, and write about your adventures
- Doodle in it
- Write poetry
- Cut out and glue pretty pictures
- Create a bucket list journal and record each item as you complete it
Does that give you enough ideas to start with? :)

These fabulous beauties are based on the coconut crepes from “Paleo Breakfasts and Lunches on the Go.” I have improved them significantly, if I do say so myself.
⅔ c. tapioca flour
⅓ c. coconut flour
½ t. baking soda
½ t. salt
1 ⅓ c. coconut milk
⅓ c. water
These are the best gluten free pancakes in the universe. I eat them standing over the stove, elbowing my family and friends away from the pan.
This needs to happen.
I’ve seen you around. I’ve seen you screaming at your kids in public, I’ve seen you ignoring them at the playground, I’ve seen you unshowered and wearing last night’s pajama pants at preschool drop-off. I’ve seen you begging your children, bribing them, threatening them. I’ve seen you shouting back and forth with your husband, with your mom, with the police officer at the crosswalk.
A bit long - but a heartfelt read.
I have found that it is difficult for those who live the paleo lifestyle to find others who do so as well on tumblr.
I am starting a page on my blog listing all of the tumblrs that live the paleo lifestyle. (ALL LEVELS WELCOME! even if you are just 80/20) In order to be on this page
- Reblog this
- Follow me :)
- Ask me to be listed
- also if comfortable list your goal (body recomp, weight loss, gain, maintenance.. etc)
Thanks about it :)
Lets build a strong paleo community!
I know you need caffeine sometimes but don’t even fucking think about reaching for a RedBull or 5-Hour Energy. I will slap that shit out of your hand so quick you won’t know whatthefuck happened. Energy drinks are toxic and fucking expensive. Money doesn’t grow on trees; coffee does. Don’t waste your time in a fucking line and spend your hard earned cash on something you can make while you’re sleeping. Cold brewed coffee is also way less acidic, making this easier on your stomach. SO GRAB A CUP OF THIS SIMPLE SHIT AND SEIZE THE GODDAMN DAY.
COLD BREWED COFFEE
¾ cup ground coffee (whatever you got is fine)
3 ½ cups cold water
Put the coffee grounds in the bottom of a large container. If you like coffee with some fucking bite, add another ¼ cup of grounds. Slowly pour the water over the grounds and stir. Make sure all the grounds get wet because sometimes there are weird dry pockets and then you’re just wasting fucking coffee. Let this sit in the fridge (or on your counter if its not too fucking hot in your place) overnight or for at least 10 hours. In the morning, strain that shit using a mesh strainer. You know, the ones that look like a screen door. If you have the time, strain one more time through a paper coffee filter to get out the last of the grounds (or don’t and just deal with a couple rogue grounds in your drink). Serve over ice and with some almond milk if that’s your thing.
Makes about 3 ½ cups of coffee (triple this recipe and keep the extra in the fridge all week)
This makes me inexplicably happy.
Favorite old-school Disney movie. I inexplicably found cartoon!fox!Robin Hood attractive, even as a kid. Weird?
So, the other day I got a little carried away and made a list of 30 real-food-related questions to answer for the next 30 days. Here we go!
3. Do you struggle with handling temptation/cheating/indulgences?
Ohhhhh, yes. I have a major sweet tooth, and even if I’ve been sugar-free for awhile, the first cheat/sweet thing I have (even if it’s just fruit) can trigger cravings for days. So annoying, because I would truly love to be able to make fruit a daily part of my life, but alas.
It’s not that there’s something wrong with the fruit itself (because fruit rocks, y’all) or any other treat, but the days of trying to get back on track are. not. fun.
That being said, of course I still indulge (ice cream and I have a seriously passionate love affair), but I need to get better at bouncing back from a less-than-optimal choice, instead of letting it haunt me and derail my progress.
I read something awhile ago about how it’s more effective to tell yourself that you “don’t want” something rather than that you “can’t” have it, and this definitely works. I just need to remember to try that more often when tempted, lol.
