If you know me at all outside of the blogosphere (I've never said that before - is that a term? I think it is... but it sounds funny, haha), you know that I am an absolute glutton when it comes to bread and chocolate. As much as I love the French language, I think I'll have to ban myself from ever going there, because if I do, I'll eat so many baguettes and chocolate croissants that I won't fit on an airplane back home! Because of this, I am in absolute agony right now:
For twenty-one days, I have given up bread and sugar (and dairy, to a lesser extent).
In my family, I'm the vegetarian who never eats vegetables.... only carbs! So this is my effort to 1) learn some healthier eating habits (vege-whats?) and 2) see if I can make it the whole 21 days. I've always been the type of person who, when confronted with a challenge, even if it's tough, finds it hard to turn the challenge down. Which is why, when my dad teasingly said I couldn't live a week without bread, I accepted the challenge - and then some. Several times a day I've found myself wondering why I had to be stubborn and accept this challenge (usually when I'm staring at a particularly delectable pastry item, or Dr. Pepper [my guilty pleasure when it comes to sodas, oh my....]). Over all, though, I think it'll be rewarding. I gorged myself sick on breads and delicious foodstuffs while I was in Mexico, so now seems like the perfect time to re-learn how to eat healthy.
It's like spring cleaning, but for my belly!
Wow, what a pathetic slogan. I'd rather just eat some pancakes.
But, anyhow, I'm on my eighth day today! Tomorrow I'll be cheating a little, by having a small bit of home-made macaroni & cheese that one of my good friends is making (but hey, I can't anger my favourite chef!), but other than that, I've been pretty good about sticking to my challenge. Who knew I had such self control?
I'm counting down the days....
PS - The outfit photos today are from the outfit I wore yesterday - it was so unbelievably comfortable and fun! And to make that day better, I got a full 12 hours of sleep..... ah, how I love going to sleep at 6pm! Haha :)
PPS - Woah! I just noticed that my Converse look navy in the photos.... I wish they were! That'd be super cool. But they're actually just plain black, sorry!
