I've read the books— The Omnivore's Dilemma and Fast Food Nation. I've heard the voices in my head telling me, "EAT ORGANIC!"— but for some reason, even though the majority of the food I buy is organic, I still sneak in the non-organic and the un-pure.

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
