The Reader's "Digest Diet"
Thursday, November 22, 2012
So, this month (November) I bought myself two new books: "The Digest Diet" and "Meals that Heal Inflammation." While I've started reading both, my attention went immediately to the Digest Diet plan and I decided to at least TRY the 21 day diet it proposes. I've gne grocery shopping and boght all my ingredients. I've prepared at least one of the soups the book recommends and I'm ready to start tomorrow morning!
Today is Thanksgiving and mostly I want to be thankful for the health that I have. Is my life perfect? No, but when I consider how well I am, it amazes me! I've become very sedentary and put on weight since my knee surgeries bu I'm actually able to walk lot more than I could before the knee replacements! Ijust ned to get going and DO the activities that I can do!
It is a cold-ish day here, in Minnesota. No snow this far South, but the Northern end of the state will get plenty. It will not be a pleasant morning to go out an take a walk, but that is what I am committed to doing tomorrow! The Digest Diet recommends a 46 to 60 minute walk but als permits one to break it into smaller chunks for starting out. My goal is to last for 30 minutes tomorrow morning and then repeat that around lunchtime.
Wish me luck (and a serious dose of commitment to the goal)!
