Well.... I survived!!
hahahaha only 29 days to go!!
Eating the right things is the easy part, its knowing that I cannot eat the bad things that is the challenging part. I haven't been eating most of the "not by design" food all week, but it was not until the rule "that i can't eat those foods" was put in place that I actually wanted them.
I started day one out with a trip to Synergy Family Wellness Center at 6:50 AM!!! BIG NEWS!! I made and ate breakfast before I went!!!! For those of you who know me this is VERY VERY early for me to be functioning, as well as out and about. YIKES!
Why the heck am I going to the chiropractor at 6:50 in the morning??
They offered a special at the seminar for individuals to go and have a complete assessment of their nervous system done. I always like a good deal so when they said it was only $20 I couldn't turn it down! If I am going to eat by design, I may as well look into the rest of their philosophy over the next 30 days and see if it is a good fit for me. SIDE NOTE: the $20 I paid for my assessment is being donated to the St Albert Food Bank.... great cause!
I am attending a seminar (with my husband) next Wednesday so he can better understand what I am doing. Love that they are including my family in the process!
So what did I eat today?
Breakfast: coffee, salsa and egg scramble
Lunch: homemade sweet potato and cauliflower soup, almonds
Dinner: chicken, banana peppers and mushrooms with roasted veggies
My Biggest Challenge of the Day?
I am making chocolate cupcakes (my favorite double chocolate pound cake recipe) with chocolate butter cream for a baby shower at work tomorrow... do you have any idea how difficulty it is to not lick your fingers?!?!?!
How Am I feeling?
Well, I am pretty sure I saw red wine on the shopping list, so I am having a glass of that. Its been a long busy day, and I can't eat cake.... other than that, I feel almost like I do any other day. Only today, I feel just a little bit better because I made it through day 1!!
