Cheese & ADD


I have two major struggles going on right now. I have not finished one book I have started, and they now number four and rising, and I want cheese on everything. It is almost like I have ADD. My attention is easily diverted. It can go from thinking about one thing and then flip to another channel. As for reading, it is near impossible to read for longer than a few minutes before I find my eyes looking out the window, thinking about the exercise I should, and am not getting, or better yet, the housework that should be done today. In the meantime, everything I eat, I want cheese on it. From the breakfast omelette, with Swiss or Gruyere sauteed with tons of veggies, to a casserole that only seems complete with lots of melty cheese, to a snack of  low-fat (now that's a hoot) triscuitt and  sharp cheddar cheese (melted, of course).

I am well aware that cheese is not low-calorie, and should be used in moderation. But it is comfort food. And for most of us living in the US, we really want to be comforted. My daughters are both trying to not eat any cheese. That's probably what I should do, too. Cold turkey. But along with salt, cheese is a too big a part of my diet. If I must, it will need to be in stages. I wouldn't want dt's from cheese withdrawal.

As for the reading, I am going to put off any blogging, reading of bloggs, or mining of the newspapers until I have read at least one chapter each morning. (Ummm will have to start tomorrow as I am already blogging...) I think I will start with my book that has a spiritual bent. Let's start off on the right foot, then onto the book teaching me how the "tipping point" in society works, followed by "The Bridge of Sighs" which is a "happy to go along" book. In the evening I can read my psychological thriller. It is always best to read those when you can reach over and touch your husband. Maybe my ADD will be cured with a little discipline. Then again, maybe my ADD is just cabin fever, and the only cure for that is Spring.

Now are you sure these aren't cravings!! ;-)

If it makes you feel any better, at work alot of us are following a wellness eating plan for lowering blood sugar and cholesterol and this encourages cheese consumption.

As for reading, I read everynight before I go to sleep, it's the only way I can get time for it!

Cabin fever for sure. I am suffering much of the same right now....longing for warm days with my hands in the dirt. I have plenty to do inside but just don't want to. Spring will eventually come with it's cure.

Blogging is taking over my life and my work life. Uh oh. I just enjoy reading others' and writing my own so much.

AS for cheese, well, everything tastes better with cheese.

Haha... I still eat SOME cheese, you know. I am just trying to AVOID dairy, but a sprinkle of cheese on top of pasta or a slice of cheese on a sandwich never killed anyone. I just try not to eat like, cheese melted on crackers, or my eggs, or make anything that has cheese as a central ingredient. Ahem.

Reading and walking can work out well, if you put a talking book onto an MP3 player. Can't help you with the cheese thing though.. it's just too yummy. ;)
