I can't help it. I work at a restaurant. I grew up on Snickers and Doritos. I just can't help but sneak in those bad foods when I'm down in the dumps. Actually, thinking about it, I haven't had Doritos in probably about five years. Crazy isn't it? ... I can't help but want hot chocolate at work sometimes with tons of whipped cream on top. I can't help but want to eat some grilled chicken with cheese. These things wouldn't be bad in moderation, but I have a tendency to go a little overboard once I start the ball rolling. But I've been pretty good. At least I thought I had been. Tonight the hubby and I watched Food Inc. and I think we both had an eye-opening viewing experience.
I've never really pushed the hubby to eat organic. I may suggest it once in awhile, but to see the difference that organic can make, it's kind of incredible. I rarely eat red meat, but I'm pretty positive that red meat is off of my food list forever! And my chicken that I have at work, yeah, that's done too. The antibiotics, the growth hormones, everything that the industries use to make more money are killing us...
It's crazy. I've read this. I know this. But sometimes it really is true when people say seeing is believing. I believe that I want to live a long healthy life with my hubby. Thankfully we've got the local herb shop and shop rite is stocking up on lots of organic food.
I've known that I needed to do this for awhile now... Organic or local farming is the only way to go.
Along with this new healthy revision to our life, the hubby and I have also started personal training sessions together. It was a lot of fun and definitely nicer then just sitting on the couch (although I love our cuddle time!)— it's just an hour out of our lazy Monday's together, but it's a great step in the right direction. He needed a change in his workout routine and I needed a reason to workout on a Monday when all I want to do is cuddle with him on the couch. I can already feel the pain.... and I love it!
Can't wait to workout tomorrow
