Wow. It's getting harder and harder to find things I love about myself. I want to succeed in this challenge though. So here goes:
Day3: I love that I am fairly open minded, and willing to try new things.
Day4: I love that I am persistent, and when I sink my teeth into something (especially physical or mental job), I usually can get it whipped into shape. I am the one at work that the problematic research type problems usually get thrown at because I do not stop until it is done.
Day5: I love that I am a good friend, and regardless what is going in my life, I can usually always be there for those I love.
Thanks to RyderB, I finally watched Hungry for Change. I want to watch it again. It made such good sense. I think I might watch it once a day every day for the first few weeks to keep me on track. You see I don't much like veggies. I am hoping I can get to a point where I do like them. I recommend this video to anyone who is thinking about trying to eat clean, and natural. It is an eye opener.
I was so pumped after watching this documentary (which by the way, didn't advocate any one product or book, etc.)! I wanted to watch another. So I scanned through and found Vegucation. I DO NOT recommend this one. I couldn't finish watching it. I thought this would be a harmless video where they showed how three folks learned to love veggies. It showed many clips of animal cruelty, and ultimately how they slaughter animals. I turned it off, and cried. I didn't know it happened like that. I blindly believed that we were humane in the ways we produced our meats/dairy/cheese/fish. It was a good eye opener, as I have always been borderline vegetarian. Of course it was one sided... showing the worse of that process. I do understand that we have to control the population of some animals (deer), and please understand I am not knocking people who do believe in this. I am just saying that after that eye opener.... I'm going to look to other foods for the nutrients I would have derived from meats and dairy, and eat the conventional meats/dairy in very rare circumstances.
And to end this blog on a good note:
