Thanks to Brittany at Magnolia Pair, I found the amazing Bri at The Secret Life of Bee! She was able to recreate my blog. I'm kind of in love with it. I wonder what she could do for my thunder thighs?
Speaking of my outer Michelin Man, I've been doing a lot of food research (Actual research, not the kind wear I go to every bakery in town and pretend like I'm planning a wedding for the free samples). I've been feeling really crummy lately (mostly because I've been living off of butter and Dr Pepper). So I decided it was time to rethink my diet.
I've learned a lot about the millions of terrible things I cram into my mouth. Things I didn't even know were bad! Like wheat bread. Who knew? Obviously, I'm not an expert. I'm not pretending to know the difference (yet) between good fat and bad fat.
I'm not about go vegan, or give up cheeseburgers (God forbid) and sugar. But when I went to the grocery store today, I actually read the labels. I got more fruits and veggies and meat. I avoided crackers, cheese, and sugar. Annnnnd, I didn't buy any soda (Miracle of miracles!).
I'm actually really excited about learning about nutrition, and improving the quality of food I eat. (Hopefully the husband will, too.) I'm excited to see my body change and get a renewed sense of energy. Life as an eighty-year-old turtle ain't fun.
