I enjoy writing. It’s one of those luxuries in my life at the moment. I can hear the roar of the gas fireplace in the background and I can feel the dog snuggling at my feet. Knowing what to write about doesn’t always come easy, but I do so love the peace and quiet! “A” personality types really seem to need it………….
While trying to follow the protocols of the blood type diet, here is what my average day is like:
5:45 AM: get myself ready before the kids!
6:30: Prepare breakfast. Today, my O received a banana and sausage. The A’s enjoyed hot barley cereal with honey, milk, and dried cherries.
7:45 AM: Drop my kindergartener off at school
8:15 AM: Kiss my two year old and send him to the YMCA daycare
8:20 AM: Work out for one hour. IT FEELS SO GOOD! I stretch until my body feels relaxed and then hit the track and weight room.
9:30 Head for home – do chores
9:35 Snack in car. Peanuts!
11:00 Cook lunch! Today we had rice, mushrooms, onions, garlic, soy sauce and grapes.
12:30 – Two year old goes down for a nap – I get to read the BTD forums.
2:30 – Five year comes home. Prepare snacks for both kids. Probably grapes and cheese.
4:00 Start thinking about dinner.
5:00 Easy dinner – leftover chicken from yesterday, sautéed collard greens with salt (just one or two leaves, I am still experimenting), sliced apples.
After dinner: think about what meat to pull out and defrost. Look at the menu plan. More chores.
Following the btd isn’t as hard as I once thought it would be. More importantly, I am trying to incorporate all of Dr. D’Adamo’s protocols. For example, A’s need to meditate! I think I am able to obtain that twice a day thanks to boundaries that I have set. I can also honestly say that I haven’t felt any nicotine cravings in weeks. I DO crave chocolate and enjoy my one small piece of chocolate at the end of the day. Sometimes chocolate soymilk satisfies that particular craving. Hmmm, calling all smokers who want to quit: give this diet a try, because something is definitely keeping these cravings at bay! (Some credit should go to the big guy upstairs, too.
