I can't believe that I am writing again about how much I am sucking at this eating healthy thing. I really want to do this for myself, yet I can't seem to find the strength to actually eat healthy. I can't seem to find the strength to actually give up meat and soda and dairy, and all the other potential allergens that I need to give up to find out if they truly make me feel worse. The worst part about meat is that I seem to be able to give up good quality meats, just not the junkie fast food type meats. I have to say that as of right now I need to put into place some simple straight forward goals into place and then work on meeting those. I will pick 3 simple but important goals to work on this week and then I will add 1 more goal each week so that by the end, I will be living my life the way I want to.
Goal 1: go for a walk for at least 30 minutes with the kids 3 times over the next week (this should be a little easier now that Michael is in school for almost 3 hours a day and I'll only have to push 2 kids)
Goal 2: eliminate all soda. (No more diet coke, or any other soda at all, unless it is sparkling water, but even then, I'd want to limit it)
Goal 3: eliminate dairy (no more going back and having just a taste, because a taste turns into more and more and then I can't stop)
I think these are simple goals that will help me get to my final goal of living a happy, healthy life. I will start to include eliminating other foods that showed up as potential allergens and all forms of sugar. I will increase my activity level as I start to get in better shape. One goal that I have to male work from now until forever, is not eating out at fast food restaurants for me or my kids. I need to cook at home so that I know what is going into my foods and so I don't give someone else my hard earned money for crap! If you read this and are tired of hearing about all my attempts and failures, just know that this is a place where I can be honest about my failures and hope that noone will jusge me for not making my goals!
