My older daughter is getting her certification in holistic nutrition. She has always been obsessed with healthy eating. My younger daughter is a vegan. So now I am having them help me with new eating habits. I'm going to start with some health tips my daughter has been posting each week: I will have the two teaspoons of organic, raw, vinegar in a glass of water with each meal (she sent me home with a bottle), 2-3 cups of green tea per day, and will use the many wonderful recipes she has devised. I will eat more organic and raw foods, such as younger daughter. I'm not ready to be a vegan, however. While I am willing to give up meat most nights, cheese is going to be harder. I could tell it was really hard for her this last week, when we were celebrating her graduation and the rest of us were having sandwiches with cheese, and she just had a look on her face that said CHEESE! But she is committed, and now I need to be too. I've already pretty much eliminated most sweets.
But it's not the eating that is the problem, as we eat healthy most of the time. My problem has been blogging, reading, studying, educating myself on things that I have needed to learn about, but required sitting. We moved to a much smaller house, minus the exercise room, and have been trapped in one room for months while remodeling. But now I need to get out on the trails with my husband, walking more, basically just moving around more. After a certain age, it can't just be about what we eat, we have to stay on the go, too.
So after a week of running after a toddler, I'm ready to tackle a new regime. Wish me luck!
