begins with baby steps.
well, i am starting my journey. i joined a class that is called "eat, move and improve." it goes for eight weeks and hopes to educate me on my choices, my health, and all things related. we had our first meeting last night at the cool restaurant here in town called k'nyay. it's awesome. all healthy and gorgeous foods. i cannot wait to go back on friday night. i cannot wait to share the goodness with paul. :)
for the next few days i have to work on making a plan for myself--what i can eat, what i will eat, what i need to buy to make this happen, talking to our awesome housekeeper and explain the banned foods to her, coming up with a plan b when in sticky situations. there must be a plan. i love the quote--those who fail to plan, plan to fail. i know this to be true. i have to have a plan so i can be successful. on thursday, i will begin a 30 day elimination detox that involves NOT eating any of the following in any form for 30 days---no caffeine, no dairy, no wheat or gluten, no sugar, no processed foods, and no alcohol. should be an adventure for sure.
today i just started small since there was already lunch in the fridge for me. i skipped my morning coffee this morning (blerg) or sugar. one small step. i have been journaling all my food, how i am feeling, water intake and anything else related. i have had a chronic headache since last week and hope that cleansing my system will help eliminate them all together. so far, so good.
baby steps, mandy, baby steps. follow me, encourage me, pray for me, and hope that i can see benefits before i get sidetracked. i need and want to be healthy.
