Another day down, 5 more to go.
I have to admit that I'm still shocked about the smoothie incident. Seriously. A small Mega Mango (pineapple juice substituted with carrot juice) all-fruit smoothie from Jamba Juice sent me running for the cookies. I'm glad that I had the willpower to fight back and win, but it's becoming more and more obvious why I find myself overweight today. Sugar (natural or otherwise) perpetuates a vicious circle in my body. Prior to now I could have easily had a large smoothie, felt fine, and never realized what was really happening inside of me.
I just got a CSA bin in yesterday and I'm about to go shopping and load the fridge with good food. Baked okra is the bomb and satisfies my desire for crunch (this curbs my desire for nuts...I like crunchy). It's so nice to see a fridge full of good, clean food!
I think I almost have Trav convinced to give it a go. He moans and cries about his nightly bowl of cereal. NOW I think "holy cow!! Tons of wheat mixed with dairy...what on earth was I doing to myself?!?" I have been trying to convince him that he won't even miss it after a few days. I know I don't, and I could put down some cereal.
We have a family photo shoot at the end of November for our Christmas cards. I wonder how I'll look and feel then?
