The BTD provides us physical strength and emotional balance...so why is it that when we need these things the most we follow the diet the least? This editorial "we" means me and I.
Winter holidays are a challenge to the immune system, yet do we combat this by avoiding sugar and avoids, or do we binge on the stuff? I'm afraid the latter answer applies to me.
I could make plenty of excuses, I have them, but truth be told, my body doesn't accept excuses. If I have to do less and leave a room a mess in order to cook and eat properly, that's what I'll have to do. The last few months I've been blessed by other's cooking generosity, and I requested the most important dietary limits, but often ate food I normally wouldn't for the sake of getting adequate calories. As close as a celiac can come to a see-food diet. I've paid the price for that, and now I'm going to take back control.
So far so good today, there's still a bit too much candy lying around, but I'm getting more self control. I've been cooking and eating real food, and trying to build up some immune strength and physical endurance. It may be hard to always do, but I owe it to myself, my body, and my family to do what it takes to be healthy!
