In my weight loss journey of last year, I pretty much eliminated breads and pasta from my daily menus. Concentrating on fruits and vegetables with occasional chicken or fish, I successfully lost over 40 pounds. Gradually, I have drifted back into eating breads and pasta -- too much, too often.
After reading a chiropractors blog yesterday, I accepted his challenge to eliminate breads, pasta, & white flour completely for three days and take note of my energy levels and emotional responses. Today was Day 1. Already I believe I have more energy. I didn't feel sluggish and sleepy in the afternoon. I intend to follow this plan the next two days.
I came to the end of the day and hadn't exercised. While flipping TV channels, I came across a show that was new to me: Losing It With Jillian*. After about 15 minutes of watching a husband and wife with significant weight to lose do so intensive workouts, I got out of my chair and did my 30 minute indoor walking routine while I watched.
I'm really thankful that I did it. I plan to do it early tomorrow morning instead of putting it off until 8:30 p.m.!
