I'm very anxious to refresh and learn some new food preparation and healthy ideas from Lisa. I refuse to diet, because the minute I do (hasn't happened in a many years) I immediately want to eat everything that is NOT on the diet. That's just silly. But … I am going to set some grounds rules and administer the raw cauliflower litmus test. This is a totally safe test that I made up at least ten years ago.
Here's how it works: Buy some cauliflower and cut it up into little pieces. Now, eat one little piece, plain. If it doesn't taste good and you really wish you had some ranch dressing, then you need some wellness in the food area. If however, you can eat it and honestly say that it tastes sweet and even yummy, then … well, that's where I want to be by the end of May!
My ground rules.
1. Choose fresh fruits and vegetables as often as possible.
2. Drink lots of water.
3. Eat most of my calories in the first half of the day.
4. Don't eat after 7:00 pm (hard for me!)
Oh, and one more thing. Sunday is FREE day. I can eat whatever I want on Sunday. I'm not banning sugar or other sweets during the week, but I am allowing myself to eat them on Sunday, guilt free, if I need to.
and that's pretty much it.
Thanks for your support and enthusiasm. I'm ready for the my Wellness Journey to begin!!
and, for inquiring minds ….
my watch (in yesterday's post) is a SWATCH (one of my lovemarks) and thanks to the virtual nudge you gave me, you enabling blog readers, you. I just purchased these two watches …
I have already made a scrapbook page about my love for Swatch, but I'm thinking I should do a little mini book celebrating my watch and bracelet collection! Btw, I did show some restraint, by NOT purchasing this one, but Oh …
Mini Clipboards! These little guys (measure 6"x9") are only $1.49 at Staples.com
and they look great with a couple of coats of spray paint and some pattern paper! I generally order them a dozen at a time — they make great gifts for teachers and friends.
