I put 4 pairs of pants on my dresser this morning that don’t fit. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but it is now solidified. I will be having Sugar Free January. Next it will be Grain Free February. I’m starting with sugar as I believe I have the most control issues with that. I’m also use food to sooth. Ugh, I know, hard to admit, but I often buy a “treat” when I grocery shop or am running errands. I’m not always hungry, but feel like I need it or deserve it. Pretty sure this stems from my youth and mom and I getting treats at the grocery store. Or whenever. Not a good habit. ( on a side note, WordPress is raining snowflakes across my screen. Fitting for the name of my blog. And the fact that we have no snow.) Anyhoo……..I’ve also been doing a lot of research on the primal or paleo way of eating and how bad grains are for us. Mark’s Daily Apple is a great website to read. The basis is cut out sugar, grains, processed crap, and eat meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts and fats. The exercise is lift heavy things, walk a lot and sprint sometimes. Easy enough. There is more involved, but you can read the book or website yourself. It really makes it a struggle to go into my classrooms and teach them about whole grains, low-fat crap, and on and on. Needless to say, I look for a new job daily. Plus it would be nice to work year round and make more than I do. But don’t we all want more money. I’m going to try to limit both sugar and grains the rest of this month. But hey, it’s Christmas time, and I like treats. So there.
On a bright note, my lovely friends the Zabels will be coming to visit on Friday. And staying in Fergus. No one stays in Fergus. And we are eating at Stevelly’s. YUMMO!!!
