Back on track, slowly but surely
Saturday, May 03, 2008
After months of hemming and hawing, I'm finally getting back with the program--albeit slowly. I think the reason why I burned out so quickly and completely last fall/winter is that I started off with an all-or-nothing attitude, and that doesn't work for me at all. What I've been doing since then is gradually introducing new healthy foods into my diet. I switched from white to whole grain bread, and from low fat to nonfat milk. A big problem for me is that I live on a limited income, so I can't always afford to go to the grocery store to buy what I need. Consequently, my intake of such necessities as fresh fruits and vegetables often suffers. Ultimately what it boils down to for me is that I can only do my best, and gratefully accept any results I get from my efforts.
