A new me?
My life is CHANGING! Thanks to my friend Kelsie. For some reason, she is able to make me try weird vegetables, she gets me to eat salad, and she is extremely motivating when it comes to altering my diet to include good things and cut out bad things.
Here is a typical day in my normal eating diet:
Breakfast: Rice Chex and milk with a ton of sugar
Lunch: Chocolate milk
Dinner: Whatever Kyle and I eat, usually involving lots of cheese and noodles
Dessert: More chocolate milk
No wonder I'm not losing weight! I eat the worst food. Kelsie does intense things like going 30 days without flour or sugar. She mostly eats raw fruits and vegetables. To me, that has always seemed IMPOSSIBLE. Until...NOW. Something has just clicked in my mind, and now it seems like such a great idea! Even though I don't like many vegetables, I'm determined to change my taste buds so that a) I like more vegetables and b) I want to eat vegetables.
Here's what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast: I hadn't started yet, so just Rice Chex
Lunch: Humongous salad with Kelsie, including kale, red cabbage, tomatoes, red onion, bell pepper, kidney beans, avocado, corn, celery, carrots, and I can't remember what else.
Dinner: Salad including lettuce, red bell pepper, pinto beans, and corn
You guys don't have to read it, but I am going to blog about what I eat. Just for a couple days. I'm totally not doing this long-term--I'm just trying it out. No milk, no sugar, no nothing. Just fruits, veggies, and beans. Oh and I can eat a little bit of Ezekiel bread--I got some yesterday and it's all right.
Kelsie took me to Sunflower Market yesterday and I loaded up on produce. It was fun and so...we'll see how this goes! Usually, my goal is always weight-loss. But this time, health actually matters to me! Kelsie has shown me a couple food documentaries that are mighty convincing...
