I have to tell you what I'm doing. It's fabulous, and you'll want to do it too. Okay, maybe not, but it's still fabulous! My friend Robynn is doing a healthy eating challenge blog called 30 Day Throw Down. The challenge is to toss out fast food, avoid highly processed food, and do your best to eat as healthy as possible.
I love this idea. It's so simple-no bells or whistles or eating only ice cubes, just avoid food crap and eat healthy. There's not even exercise involved (at least not this month) which works so well for me since I loathe exercise and hate doing it (even if I have time, which I totally don't). Still, even with out exercise, I think just tossing the crap will get me down the last 8lbs....what do you think?
I've taken it one step further, and decided that in addition to tossing the junk food and eating more naturally I will also be returning to vegetarianism. Yes, I was a veggie for six years and I loved it. It was probably just the 16 year old old, pre-three-babies thing but my body was totally rockin' back then...I'd like to see it go back to that. Plus I always felt so much lighter and more energetic. I started eating meat at the end of my pregnancy with Monkey and I just kept on going.
Now, I return to you oh lovely land of tofu and greens. Don't make that face-being a veggie can be awesome if you know the right recipes. Some recipes don't even include tofu....like the one I cooked tonight.
Spread hummas on bread. Spread Tzatziki on top of that. Layer spinach and feta, top with tomatoes, roll like a burrito. Voila! Yummy veggie eatings:
I've just passed the week mark and already I am feeling a little more energetic. I totally cleaned my house today without thinking "Please no, God why" first. I totally give credit to the vegetables (and to me for eating them). Also, it may have been my imagination, but I think my dress may be a little looser....
Stay tuned for regular Tell All Tuesday updates about my adventures in the 30 Day Throwdown-as bribery I promise to include a super yummy reciepe for your enjoyment!
