So I’ve decided to stop complaining about my weight and instead am trying to do something about it. Seeing as how there are still only 24 hours in a day, I haven’t miraculously found time to exercise (yet!) so I’ve had to do what I’ve been dreading for a while: change my diet.
I’ve decided to do a cleanse of sorts; for 2 weeks, I won’t allow any sugar or white flour to pass through my lips. After that, I’ll gradually add them back in but in small doses. I’m on day 2 right now and I can tell you that this may have been the worst idea I’ve ever had. What was I thinking???
Here is my confession: I am a sugar addict. Like, must have it after every meal and also in-between meals. Like, I honestly think I got a withdrawal headache yesterday. On day one. I need chocolate like some people need caffeine or cigarettes. And in addition to my sugar addiction, I think I probably have some kind of a white flour problem too. My meals always have to have a starch with them. Potatoes, rice or pasta accompany pretty much every protein I have. And vegetables? Well, I could take ’em or leave ’em but I usually leave ’em.
So, anyway, I’m not happy. In fact, I’m miserable. But I’m hoping this will be the kick in my butt that I need to start being healthier. Either that or I’m going to lose my mind and hurt somebody soon.
On a happier note, here’s a picture of Peanut on the 4th of July. She also had a fun headband with little flag things sticking up off it but she refused to wear it. Oh, well.
