Well, my birthday celebrations got to me. I am up .6 this week. It could have been a lot worse, but it is still a little disappointing. I slacked off and I knew I shouldn't have. It's a new week and I will do better.
Our church's quarterly ladies' night out was tonight. It's always an enjoyable time. I don't get to talk to them as much since I started teaching the teenagers on Wednesday nights. I picked a friend up and we were talking about eating healthy. I told her I looked into eating clean and said that it seems like so much work and you have to put so much time into it. She told me that you just have to think about your health and isn't it worth taking the time? (Paraphrasing, I can't remember the exact words.) Regardless, she made an excellent point and I needed to hear it. My health is worth the time and effort into eating better. So many prepackaged foods have stuff in them that is horrible for you. You can't even pronounce the names of most of the ingredients. I am going to do some more looking into what it means to eat cleanly and try to come up with a feasible plan. I'm worth it. I'm not saying it will be easy or something that I am going to just change right away, but I am going to make an effort and try.
If you have any thoughts or resources on clean eating, please let me know.
