lets talk about health baby

Posted Jan 26 2010 3:00am
I should preface this by saying, I am NOT a health expert.

In any way, shape or form.

In fact, I have been known to sort of rebel against "healthy" at times,
especially in the way of eating.

I'm the, all in moderation, kind of girl.
Which really means I'm a, I'll eat all this junk food until it's gone so that I don't keep eating it all week, kind of girl.

But, on the other hand...I'm always willing to try new things.
I love switching things up, doing this or that, and just you know, waiting to see what happens.

It's just that I always drew a line at certain things.

Such as....
I would NEVER give up bread (gluten), sugar, or my beloved Diet Soda.

Ever.

Wellllll, guess what?
I just went two weeks without all three of those things.
And guess what?
I lived.
And guess what else?
I, um, kinda liked it....

I know, I know!
Where the heck is OLD Summer????

I don't know you guys, but there is this whole world out there that is bright and shiny and happy, and I am sorta enjoying being a part of it.

{shiny happy people laughing....}

Le benefits of the fast?
Energy.
{after the first few days...}
A flatter (not flat though, mind you) tummy.
Self Confidence.
Happy, happy, joy, joy.

And I thought happiness only came through Diet Soda, sugar and bread....
so you can imagine my shock.

Anyway, I took a break this weekend from the whole health kick so that I could keep my existence in life.
You know, not wanting to pass out and all.
And here's what is weird.

One Snickers Bar and Cherry Pepsi later, and I was a FIEND.
I mean, call me Edward needing Bellas blood (yes, I caved and watched the dang movie)....
I was a girl on a mission.

I needed more!!!

Sandwiches, chocolate, ice cream, OH MY....I was in taste bud heaven.
What happened next?
Bliss?
Nasomuch.
More like a crash from EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER land.

I needed a nooner. {Nap, I mean.}
I needed to mope.
I needed to cry.
I needed more sugar, bread, and soda.

I don't know what to make of all this...except that I'm thinking I may like the healthier me.

Jimmy's on board now with the no sugar thing, because he is trying to make weight for his upcoming Jiu Jitsu tournament, so we've made the commitment to stay on track at least until Valentines Day...

And then who knows.
I'm not sure I'm willing to give up the goods for life, but for a season, definitely.

So, if any of you have any AH-Mazing gluten free/sugar free recipes, pass em along. Seriously. Now!

Sorry, that's just the sugar withdrawals talking....
