How about I don't acknowledge the fact that the last time I blogged my little boy was just starting to crawl at 6 months. Now at 10 months he is just starting to walk. I've got to not wait for major milestones before blogging again!! I glanced through some of my old archives, and aside from the fact that I wrote much better before "mommy brain" struck, I notice a common thread through the years. I never seem to stay totally compliant for long, and my biggest downfall is ALWAYS sweets. On the good side, the lifestyle changes that have stuck from the beginning (such as no chicken, corn, oranges, beef, soda, etc.) are still sticking to this day. I also have a good handle on eating my personal superfoods (turkey, tuna, lemons, greens, broccoli), but I seem to waver widely on the in-between parts. I'm still an expert at letting life get in the way, and allowing stress to take over. Thankfully, now that I'm a mommy (with another on the way!!) I don't have all that much time to think about it. My biggest goals in the house as we head into the holiday season is to keep the fridge stocked with bennies and neutrals, and to limit the sweets as much as humanly possible. We're on the right track as we've been having turkey leftovers, and tonight I made collard greens, beans and brown rice (so yummy, and by Thursday there will be collard omelets gracing our breakfast table!).
I hope that this finds you all well, compliant, and restful as the busy season approaches. Remember to make good choices, not to stress over the bad, get in your lemon water in the morning, and sleep a little extra when you can. With hopes of writing again before the baby is potty trained...much love in the BTD!
