This new eating thing could lead to a whole new wardrobe 🙂
Starting the Whole 30 Program has led me to reach for my knitting… a lot!
I may not get that much REAL WORK done this week, but boy is my knitting picking up. My “replace the cheese with knitting” strategy is helping with my cravings for cheese.
just 30 days 27 more days of eating foods, like meat, seafood, eggs, tons of veggies, some fruit and lots of good fats from fruits, oils, nuts and seeds. The stickler is that I CAN’T EAT CHEESE, dairy, chocolate or bread; nor can I drink my red wine!
- This morning I was at the beginning of Day 3 thinking this isn’t SO bad
- But now here I am at the end of Day 3, thinking this is BAD – 27 days to go (wow, that’s a long time)
And this is where my knitting came in…
…to the rescue again! I just don’t think I could do this all by myself!!!
I was taking a break from coding a new web-site and as I strolled through the kitchen, the bagels were calling to me from my counter (no one else in the household is participating, so tempting foods are everywhere), and I thought, “Be Strong, it’s only a bagel”. “But it’s a fresh Thomas’ bagel (the squeezable kind) that taste so good with a slather of cream cheese!” “No, I won’t give in, I’ll just pick up my knitting.” And so I did. And I traded the bagel and cream cheese for 6 more rows on the sleeves of my cheese-yellow cardigan…
OK, crisis averted for now.
