Day 8: Cooking for the “Others”

Out of the frying pan...
This is a job!

One of my biggest challenges while eating this way is having to cook for others.  It can be soooo hard, because no matter what I’m cooking, it all smells so good.  Everything smells delicious, even the things that I don’t normally eat.  I cooked a full meal and I didn’t touch a thing, it was hard but it is worth it in the end.

Day 7, Week 1, Hell Yeah!

The Transformation Continues!

I am tired my friends, so I will keep this post short and sweet.  A week went by and what seemed impossible is now behind me.  I want you to understand that making a commitment to change is a choice that requires work.  I feel it everyday, most of my day feels good though.  I have been eating many fruits and vegetables but my nuts (cashews, pistachios and almonds) give me the fullness that I need to cope.  The workouts are hard at times but they get easier with time and they don’t feel as draining.  My water intake is very high and it makes me feel refreshed and staying hydrated fuels my energy.  I am proud to have completed week one and am excited to see what is ahead.  Good night.
