You can CHANGE....

Salad: green leaves, tomatoes, avocados, apples and bell pepper.

It dawned on me that this is the way I have been changing my eating habits. 
For over a year now, slowly and consistently I am changing them.

It's a really good article. Now, it's bookmarked so I can read it again and again.

Here are some of the changes I have accomplished in over a year now:

* I no longer drink coffee loaded with sugar in the morning, 
I drink a green smoothie loaded with kale, spinach 
any other green leaves I have on hand.

* I don't drink sweet tea with meals when we go out, I drink Water.

* I am eating more fruits and vegetables everyday.

* I take a multivitamin, fish oil and VITEX every day.

* I am baking my own bread  most of the time.

* No more cokes or sodas on the weekends. 
Sometimes I will take a sip of someone else's drink and decide that I just don't like the taste. :)

* I am consciously being more active without joining a gym.

* When I crave something sweet, creamy or fatty I go for dark chocolate. 
It actually helps me lose weight.

The consequences: I lost weight, have more energy and feel a whole lot better!!!

 What do you think? What do you want to change in your life?

Your change of diet sounds great, Tereza!

We are similar in some ways. The children drink milk or water and we don't eat sugar - except for the occasional treat.

I also get my exercise from the day's activities rather than a sport. I like that it seems natural and I don't have to find extra time for a routine.

I used to eat dark chocolate and I still like it beat. Since cutting out sugar, we have found that we can't eat a lot of sweet food, anymore, but our taste buds are more perceptive, nowadays.

Hmm, what do I want to change in my life? Not too much, I think - I really love my life, but I could be more disciplined, I guess. That's why I'm writing plans for this term's work, even though we'll still learn the unschooling way. I need something to be accountable to or I don't get enough done.

God bless:)
