My husband suggested that we follow Mark's Daily Apple and the 21 day challenge. (In my opinion, he is doing this for me. I think he sees my health spiraling out of control and it scares him.) Now, I will say my hubby does like to eat healthy, and even though I think he is suggesting this for my benefit, I think he will enjoy it. It is a Paleo diet, but we may tweak it a bit. Paleo can be pretty strict on the foods you eat and also the types of meats you buy. It is not in the budget at this time to buy all organic and grass fed meats to feed a family of 5. Also, on Paleo, you are not supposed to eat beans. We decided that we would still include beans in our diet. They are a healthy food and we use them in our chili each week.
This is not going to be something that will be hard to do AT home. My biggest challenge comes when I am not at home. I have a HUGE sugar addiction. Let's just say, the other day at work I ate more than 5 donuts. And each time I was not in the teacher's lounge, all I thought of were the donuts that were in there. And I made up things that I needed to do, that all had to take place in the lounge.
So that is my challenge. I need to find things to take place of the sugar. And sugar is everywhere at work I can't remember if I told y'all about the chocolate bowl at work. Yes, the PTO fills it up EVERYDAY! I can't have just one.
Well I have LOTS more to say, but I will save it for another day.
Any thoughts for me to help me get through my sugar addiction?
