I’ve been putting off writing this post for a while now, continuing to trick myself into believing that I could work 50 hours a week, coach 10 hours a week, keep up my amazing website, train at CFSB every day, cook Paleo meals every night, be a great girlfriend, sister and friend AND remain a sane person without totally burning out.
As it turns out, I cannot do all of those things after all – at least while remaining a sane person. Unfortunately in life, you do have to make decisions as to where your time goes, and this website has lost a lot of my attention in the past few months. That’s not to say that I will never post another recipe – I plan to when I can find the time – I just wanted to reach out to all of my readers and apologize for not updating regularly, but also share with you that I’m in a place right now where I won’t be able to maintain this the way that I would ideally like to.
I wanted to thank every person that has ever read this website, tried one of my recipes, commented, complained, complimented me. When I first started Paleo Madeline about a year ago, I wasn’t ever even sure I would show it to anyone! I just wanted a creative outlet where I could develop my skills and share my experiences as I traveled down the Paleo lifestyle yellow brick road. When I did decide to show it to people, I never imagined that so many of you would use my recipes to kickstart your own Paleo journeys, or compliment your current diets.
I’m really looking forward to the day that I will be able to start doing this with the same fervor and passion that I had started out with; I can’t wait until I can carve that time out of my day again to write and share and connect. I genuinely miss it, but right now, something’s gotta give.
Meanwhile, I hope you all continue to evolve and improve with your diets – keep making cooking for yourselves and others FUN, not work. Even after the longest of days, it brings me an inner calmness to pick out a recipe and methodically measure out and fix my ingredients, transforming them into a meal that brings Forrest and I together to share the end of our day.
Remember that diet an important component to looking good, but also FEELING good – feeling confident and competent in the kitchen are wonderful tools to have in your life aresenal. I hope you’ll all still enjoy the many recipes, tools and tricks that I have archived away here over the past year, and I hope each recipe brings you a little joy in your day.
I’ll talk to you all soon, and peace love and paleo —
