Today is the day before the first day of my attempt to become younger, better, happier. All this home renovation has left me with a real need to get ahold of my health before it disappears forever. During this remodel, I’ve been neglecting good eating habits. There’ve been too many strokes with a paintbrush, too many bags of rocks to carry, too many long days that lead to short-meal-prep-time. We haven’t been eating ‘fast’ food, but we haven’t been eating slow food, either. Let’s call it going nine miles above the speed limit – you won’t get pulled over, but you’re way off the limit. I haven’t noticed weight gain so much as I’ve noticed a crumby disposition. Several family members have tried a particular ‘diet’, with some good results. Stanley, the human humingbird, eats whatever he wants whenever he wants and never pays any consequences. So this 21-day health challenge isn’t for him. It’s for me, Marsha. Maybe I’ll find out what’s ailing me.
I’d been wondering for awhile whether I had a wheat intolerance. Since my daily dose of these
is massive and brings me great happiness, having to do without wheat may be a life-changer. Still, good health is a good thing, even if it means life without pretzels. … Did I really just say that?????
And maybe it wasn’t wise, but I spent this Day 0 doing things I won’t be able to do for three weeks.
I had this
as I do every day. It’s not the honey that is bad, but the quantities I consume. Two cups a week can be a problem, I’m told.
I also had this
And this morning, in my coffee, for the last time this month, I poured something I never thought might be bad
We’ll see how it goes. I’m willing to do some things for health, but give up pretzels??? Maybe that’s going too far.
