One thing I didn't expect when I started blogging about it, is how fun the journey itself would be. I enjoy going to the gym and finding creative ways to use the produce I get every week in my basket. I love reaching my mini-goals and finding clothes that fit again. And I love feeling healthy. I can run faster and jump higher than three months ago, and I feel so much stronger! Today I ate a red bell pepper for a snack, and it tasted sweet because my taste-buds aren't desensitized with high fructose corn syrup anymore (but the blue raspberry airhead I ate the other day made me sick--all I wanted was a drink of water to get rid of the sugary taste). I've always gotten too much sodium, and I've learned it's not as hard to stay within the RDA when I eat a lot of fresh foods.
I love this blog because I actually have to sit and think about what I've accomplished, and I can see what a difference it's made for me. I know when this is all "over", it won't really be over. Because this is going to change the way I eat for the rest of my life, and I'm grateful for the journey.
I'm so excited for my progress so far, and I can't wait to see where the rest of the journey will take me!
