Okay, FAT TUESDAY is over and since it is NOT Fat T-M (Tues thru Mon) I am now "giving up for Lent". My hope is that after 47 days I will have built a "habit" of not having these things so I will continue to have these healthy "given ups" for life.
Fast food (that's burgers, Mcanythings, etc. - I can still get a salad or healthy "meal" at a fast food place but not fast food "food" - if that makes sense! Like today I had a salad from Little Ceasers for lunch... fast food joint but not "fast food".)
Ice Cream (of any kind. sugar free, low carb, yadda - I have zero! portion control with this)
Carbs (not all carbs, but simple, sugar laden junk)
Limit “eating out” (ie: Little Ceasers once a week or less ok, every day not so much!)
sugar/sweeteners (I don't know how successful I'll be but I'm trying to cut out all added sugar and sweetener. The sweetener more because I think some of my pain and issues may stem from them. Also, if I don't do sugar or sweetener I can't do ice cream so it kind of helps build on and reinforce that.)
coffee (I can NOT drink coffee without sugar or sweetener. I originally was going to say caffeine but this allows me the luxury of drinking non-sweet tea still!)
