So, today I started thinking about how inconvenient it would be to start eating a clean diet.
Then I realized how ridiculous I was being, and made this list of things that are ACTUALLY inconvenient...
Inconvenient: Eating paleo in the year 2018
Actually inconvenient: Stalking a bison, killing it, butchering it, and cooking it over a campfire...naked.
Inconvenient: Going to the grocery store.
Actually Inconvenient: Planting, weeding, and watering vegetables...then waiting for them to grow.
Inconvenient: Cutting out alcohol.
Actually inconvenient: Hangovers.
Inconvenient: Waiting for the potatoes in the Insta-pot to finish cooking.
Actually Inconvenient: The Potato Famine of 1845.
Inconvenient: Taking sugar out of your diet.
Actually inconvenient: Type 2 Diabetes.
Inconvenient: Avoiding fast food.
Actually Inconvenient: Diarrhea.
This is obviously not an exhaustive list of things that are MUCH more inconvenient than simply going to the grocery store with a healthier list, and exercising a bit more willpower than a 5 year old with a bag of Halloween candy.
It is however enough real talk for me to stop whining, and lay off the cupcakes until Christmas dinner. I hope you'll join me.

Oooh! One last observation...
Inconvenient: Designing, buying, and waiting for a new jump rope to be shipped to you.
Actually inconvenient: Using a menagerie of poorly sized loaner ropes to whip yourself like a rented mule.
