Well, life got hectic for a little while. I know this is no excuse to stop paying attention to what I eat - in fact, it's probably more of a reason to, but something had to give and it ended up being my tracking.
Excuses aside, I'm back to it, and with a new challenge: the fiance and I are talking about giving up sugar, caffeine, beef, and pork for Lent. We probably should have started talking about this before yesterday, considering Lent starts today, and we just stocked the freezer full of ground beef and roast last week. But also last week, we watched a movie called "Forks over Knives". The movie examines how rejecting an animal-based and processed food diet can do amazing things, including controlling many diseases.
I have to admit - I have no idea how to transform my diet from what it is to a whole foods diet. I think I'm a decent cook, but most of my recipes revolve around some sort of meat. All I can imagine is us eating salads all the time. I know that's a little extreme, but maybe doing a 180 in terms of diet is too. So we're starting off with 40 days and still eating poultry and fish. We'll see how it goes.
Regardless, I'm back to tracking.
