We made it through the first 10 days of eating ultra-low carb, and now it’s Carb Nite™! I must be doing something right this time, because I’m actually less excited about eating carbs than I am about the fact that I feel so much better now than when I started this.
(It helps that doughnuts, brownies, and ice cream are not on the menu tonight. Strawberries, though.)
I keep learning this same lesson over and over, but when I consistently do a few simple things to take care of myself—eat better, take vitamins, go for walks—it makes everything so much easier. In the course of a week, I go from pushing-Play-on-another-episode-of-Daredevil-because-getting-off-the-couch-is-frankly-too-exhausting person to strolling-around-downtown-visiting-the-library-and-the-organic-food-store-and-then-coming-home-and-planting-heirloom-tomatoes person.
It makes me want to keep going to see if there’s a saving-the-planet-while-designing-a-website-and-writing-the-great-American-novel person in there somewhere.
