|From Last Year's Garden|
For the last year my husband has changed his diet in a drastic fashion at first due to some health issues and now for more general health purposes. Thus, we've changed the kind of foods we have around the house and the way we eat our main meals. I've found that when I eliminate wheat and sugar from my diet I feel more energy. Wheat and sugar laden foods are triggers for me to overeat. I know this but they taste so good! I also really enjoy baking. Alas, my weight has gone up since I've stopped being vigilant.
So here's the plan: The Seven Day Challenge. I'm challenging myself to stay off wheat and sugar for seven days. Ultimately I'd like to stay off longer but I know myself. I have to start small. Small goals are more attainable. Once I meet a small goal, I can add another and feel more prepared to achieve the goal.
Is there something you'd like to stay away from or learn or do? Maybe there's a book you've been meaning to read, perhaps you want to stop drinking so much soda? Maybe you keep intending to start running. Whatever it is, make a commitment to refrain or to partake (depending on your goal) for seven days! Let me know if you're joining me. I'd love to have some company!
