A week has gone by since I posted my intentions for Whiter and Lighter
and today it's time for my first weekly update:
Regarding soda and wine:
I started cutting down on Coca Cola already in the last week of March
and it has actually been easier than I thought. As long as we don't have a crate of cans
sitting in the fridge I don't really think about it. I get my sugar from other sources.
I drink about two soda's a week now and that is well within the boundary I set.
Cutting back on the red wine is my greatest challenge,
and not having a glass of wine while cooking tomorrow afternoon,
- and then one or two more with dinner - that is gonna be tricky.
So, I have actually written a date on the bag-in-box in my kitchen!
If I run out before that - too bad. I am giving myself some tough love.
The upside is I already feel less bloated and have less heart burn.
Regarding doing more of what makes me happy:
During Easter we did a little road tripping and I made tons of great food;
meatballs, pies, hearing sallad, pannacotta, cupcakes...
It was a lovely couple of days, but then a low mood struck me again.
We still haven't had an answer from Immigrations, and it's taking a toll on us.
This week we've mostly spent in front of the TV or our computers.
The return of the light is also disturbing my sleep lately, making me cranky.
The fact that they have started rebuilding our neighbor's house
that burned down 6 months ago - super early in the mornings - doesn't help.
Spring also just brings with it a sense of restlessness. If only I could find a way to
harness that energy somehow, and get back to being creative.
How are you guys doing?
