Day One

Today is Friday-Pizza Night at our house. Every other week we go to our local pizza place that has vegan options and our favorite draft beer. This is the Friday that we stay home and either eat Gardein Pizza Pockets  or Daiya Frozen Pizza . Although both are good and you would never know that they are vegan, the Daiya product wins out. Today, I’ve decided to substitute a different meal instead of pizza for me.

Vegetarian Chili-2 cups
Snap Pea Stir-fry vegetables- steamed
Fresh strawberries
2 whole wheat tortillas

I usually drink water or tea (without sweetening) for a beverage.

Comments: This morning seems hard so I am keeping busy writing for a bit. I’ll be taking the dog for a walk then work 1030-2. After work is a crucial time for me. If I come back to the house I will want to eat. So, my plan is to run to Walmart after work to pick up Pizza pockets for the boys, then off to pick up the child at school. After I drop him off at home I am back to work 430-630. The time in between school and work I will be at home supervising chores and I will do some of my own household chores to keep myself busy and because they need to be done.

I am determined. My husband has lost so much weight seemingly so effortlessly but I know it’s because he is such a logical creature and he doesn’t have the cravings that I have. Also, his success spurs him on and I hope that mine will do the same. When I told him my plan he was discouraging because it isn’t “normal” to eat this way. I’ve read the studies and I am convinced that for me, this is healthy. I am intrigued by the idea that intermittent fasting also plays a part in longevity. I do believe that it is the way our ancestors ate successfully.

I do understand that my readers may not share my opinions. I am merely journaling my journey and do not expect that everyone believes the same. I am also not giving anyone advice here. I believe that every person should do their own research.
