One of our resolutions this year is to clean up our eating. We decided to start the new year with a 30 day cleanse.
We have decided to cut out all processed foods, grains, and dairy. Our meals and snacks have been based around organic/grass fed meats, chicken, and fish, tons of veggies, and tons of fruit.
Snacks are no longer chips, cookies, crackers, or cake. No donuts, no coke, no small bags of candy.
We are one week in and things are going well. P and I have been making detailed meal plans, shopping together, and keeping each other accountable. There was a dark moment on Friday night when I was jonesing pretty hard and started listing all of the foods I was missing to P. Skittles, donuts, and chips. I kept asking him to run to the store and get them for me. But, he remained strong and would not go. Thank goodness, because I was ready to cave.
But, its been a few days and I am actually feeling better. I feel like my cravings for sugar are starting to subside.
We both have found that we are feeling better already, and are so happy to be doing something good for ourselves and our lives.
How have you done this first week with your resolutions?
