A lot has happened since the last post. I had such a hard time trying to find good things to write about during the dark times because it would just swirl around in my being like a broken record.
Well, I can tell you I am in a good place. I am happy. Mostly, I am seeing a stretching coming. Its a good stretching.
I am choosing to change my eating habits. I used to say that I don't like food. I don't like cooking. I don't like eating. But that's a part of life-nourishment. I then thought about the amount of chocolate/sugar I consume. The reality is that I LOVE sugar and not anything else. So if its true that I don't like food then I'll eat anything, right? Why not eat healthier? So I am! I bought "The Maker's Diet" and started reading it. A friend of mine is doing the paleo diet (cave man diet). My theory is "If God made it, it can be eaten" (minus some animals like bottom feeding fish/crustaceans and meat eating birds).
It was somewhat difficult to NOT eat junk during the Holidays but I knew that cutting back verses cutting off was much better. My mood has changed. The amount of food I eat now is less because I'm getting what my body needs and it's not storing the extra. This is not a diet. This is a life-change. It was a process, and is still a process, of taking out the bad for the good. When we finished the macaroni and cheese, I just didn't buy it anymore. I didn't buy the canned refried beans, I now make our own-pink beans in the crockpot! Cow milk is reserved for certain drinks. Almond milk is the new normal. Coconut milk works great in smoothies and shakes.
