For some reason, I started reading a book about nutrition today while L napped and Hatchling repeatedly tried to play ball with me. Playing ball with Hatchling currently consists of sitting still while he picks up the ball, lifts it high over his head, drops it behind him, and then smacks me with his little fists because he doesn't realize that the ball is no longer in his possession. It's a great game.
Except for my bruising... but I digress.
The information I took away from my foray into nutrition was not information I was particularly interested in gleaning. Overwhelmingly, it appears that I need to cut sugar and caffeine out of my diet. That doesn't sound too bad, except for my morning Coke.Aluminum canPacked, 39 sugar gramsNectar, Love, Cruelty
Do you think that if you are cutting sugar and caffeine out of your diet, you can leave just enough in to cover your morning soda? Yeah, I don't think so either. I know I need to make a change, but lets face it- I've been having a Coke for breakfast for the last 15 years or so. What are that chances that I am going to give it up now?
I'd like to get healthy, but I'm just not sure it is worth it. Does anyone have any better suggestions?*I wonder if my family would make it through my 'transition' period?**My new diet would also exclude pretty much everything I had today, from breakfast at Rick's Bakery to dinner at (you guessed it) Steak N Shake, not to mention a few sodas in between...
