Yesterday I had an inspiring conversation with Jady Griffin who is a personal trainer and nutritionist at my place of exercise and sweating! http://calgaryhealthexpress.com/
We’ve been talking on and off about the low carb way of eating.
Last week we bumped into each other at Co-op and we talked about “too many grapes”. This isn’t a problem now as my grapes of choice are not available. Choosing to ignore them when they are will be more of a challenge.
On Wednesday we spoke about the issue of breads and muffins and she challenged me to try living without them for two weeks. Well, I’d rather quit smoking.
Since I don’t smoke, I can’t do that. I also can’t quit this cold turkey. I have, after all, a lot invested in my bread and muffins – most of it in a 10 year old grain grinder, a swack of cookbooks, and the pleasure I derive from messing with other people’s recipes!
Well, Jady, since I enjoy messing with other people’s recipes, and other people’s quotes, I’m going to mess with your challenge.
For the next 21 days here’s what’s going to happen:
- I will not eat bananas and I will not eat grapes.
- I will have only one muffin during the day at work (I usually bring 2 or 3 of my delicious banana muffins) that are now made with applesauce (unsweetened) and far less sugar
- I will limit my bread intake to two slices per day.
Last night at TOPS I weighed in at 231 pounds. I’ll keep you posted on the results on Thursday nights.
What is your challenge? How are you dealing with it? Post a comment and share your ideas!
Have a great day.
