Now, this little subset of Nagles has already given up grains, legumes, and most dairy, but, we've really struggled since the holidays (four months, I know!) to get the sugar back out of our diet, thus our willingness to embark on this little journey. We spent a week cleaning out our kitchen and getting rid of stuff that would tempt us. I even ordered a dehydrator to make my own beef jerky (it arrived today)!
Which brings us here to Day 1...a day full of "whine".
Don't get me wrong, we're all committed. No one wants to be the one to mess things up and do something that costs us points. Still, the caffeine withdrawal headache has been horrible. Buttercup has a nasty cold and can't taste anything, so she's craving processed food, and Valiant? He's just hungry and is stubbornly refusing to eat fruit. The games have begun...
Friday, the kids and I all had our weight and body fat % measured...it was a good/bad reality check. This is what I wrote in my log book following that experience:
|Of course I had to make my log book something cute!|
It will be an interesting ride, don't you think?
