I want a do-over for 2009! This year is the year of poor, bad and no timing, family and friends dropping like flies, I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I'm thinking I need a good week's vacation to think and clear my head, but it ain't gonna happen this year. Boo.
Easter was nice, I stayed in range calorie-wise, but not Clean Eating-wise. Sugar + fat + salt = *insert skull and crossbones here*
My uncle died early Easter morning. My dad is very sad about his brother, even though it wasn't wholly unexpected - I doubt there's a way to deal with the death of your closest buddy that hurts any less than another.
I found out yesterday that one of my cousins was found dead of an accidental overdose, which was unexpected and awful to hear about.
Have to say I'm glad that my food triggers are happy events rather than sad, or I'd be shoveling in the potato chips right about now. Egad.
Also, as bad things tend to happen in threes, I'm being very cautious - you never know when the Grim Reaper will catch you unawares.
ANYWAY. My diet is back on track. Still eating my colors properly, and working in some anti-inflammatory foods and spices more often. Today's tally: 2 reds, yellow, 2 green, orange, plus ginger and cinnamon. Maybe I'll get in a few blueberries tonight, or some beets for that blue/purple group. Oh, and I always forget white. So cauliflower and beets for pre-bed snack. Yes.
Hope you all are having a great week!
