I’ve been struggling with two things: television and sugar.
It’s time for a radical course of action.
Last week, I tried out the Whole30 program – you cut out grains, dairy,sugar, additives, etc, for thirty days.
I lasted two days. No cream in my coffee? Dealbreaker.
So, that program is not for me. But it did feel good to not pump my body full of sugar and diet Coke for two days.
Doing Whole30 was too extreme for me. But I think there’s merit to the boot camp approach to changing habits. It’s time for change, now.
I want to change my eating habits so I can stop feeling crappy and tired.
I want to change my TV habits so I can stop stuffing my days with mindless filler and make space for creativity, mindfulness, and joy. Tomorrow is the day. I’m doing it cold turkey – no sugar, no headphones at bedtime, no TV unless I am cleaning.
I have no plan. Just an intention and a radical commitment to making this happen.
