I Failed Miserably!
Failed miserably is actually being quite kind. I had trouble even getting started. I'm refering to the Double Dog Dare and I have to admit it went down hill fast.
I have to admit to myself that the best I can do is the salad a day. And I can over do the one once of nuts a day. You read my blog. You know I way over do the "NUTS." Right?
I tried to steam 2 servings of greens a day for my husband and myself. I bought all of the greens. They rotted in my refrigerator. I always had an excuse not to make them. Today's picture is my proof. I tried to eat 3 servings of fruit a day but my kids beat me to it. I mean, I could buy more but who am I kidding? It would probably go to waste too. We were doing fruit/veggie smoothies for a while but it's too cold now. And finally not so much on the 1/2 cup of beans or legumes a day.
Oh, I did just fine on all the things I had to give up with the exception of a bit of sugar in the dark chocolate chips. I'm not giving up. I'll try again in a few weeks. Or maybe the Spring or Summer. Fall is looking good too.
Okay so I'm just going to plug along doing my best to be healthy. I just can't put any extra demands on myself. They seem to overwhelm me. I'm sticking to the salad a day and then whatever sides I have in the one home cooked meal I make. I'll get there. I have the want to just not so much the time/energy. It'll come!
