Okay, I think I've got this 7 thing figured out . . . ya'll are wanting Ann and me to be the guinea
Happy, but truth be told, a little scared, too. Okay, a LOT scared. You know that Month 1 is the fast from excess food. That may not have been the biggest deal for Jen Hatmaker (author of 7), but for moi, well, let's just say that there's a reason I was trying to come up with something cuter than pig. (Although, now that I think about it, a pig does weigh less than a hog . . . yep, let's go with pig. I can be happy with that.)
I am a voluptuous woman (try looking up the word zofitg), and I didn't get this way by eating healthy whole-grains, salads, and lean meats all my life. No, I did the old fashioned way--I ate like a . . . well, you know.
I've struggled with gluttony all of my life (even when I was thin--like a 100 years ago--so this is a rEEEEally old problem), and to say that the food thing is going to be a challenge is probably the understatement of the year. (The decade. Maybe the millenium. ) Yes, I do love me some groceries. And restaurants. And . . . well, yeah, I love it ALL.
I know I haven't posted on a regular basis so far this year (and, yes, I know, even much last year), but I do plan to use this blog as my 7 journal, so I can
Here's what I decided about my food choices. (Jen chose seven foods, but, remember, she stresses that hers don't have to be ours--her book isn't meant to provide a legalistic template. I'm pretty much going the way of Bible Dude, who started his 7 project last month.) My menu for the month will consist of the following:
BREAKFAST: Eggs and toast
LUNCH: Beans and brown rice, a small portion of fruit
DINNER: Small portion of plain meat and a vegetable
And since I start this project tomorrow, I'm off now to meet my just-returned-from-Senegal sister-friend for a hamburger and onion rings at Tookies. (I shall refrain from calling it the Last Supper.)
