I am still struggling to make changes in the way my family and I live, making small steps toward a healthier life. I now understand how hard it is to work 40+ hours a week, manage a home, family, and try to be, “healthy.” I am giving myself a break by taking small steps in hope that we can stay with the changes and not feel like it is a burden. Each week I will make one small change in the way we eat, the products we use, (going natural), and the amount, and kind, of excercise we get. Hopefully by the end of a year our lives will look totally different…and we will all feel totally different.
This week we are eliminating red, and processed meats, from our diet. We live in Alberta…this is beef country…vegetarians are on the same level as communists and lesbians here, lol. With the beef recall of XL Foods looming over this province, it is not that hard to see myself and my family choosing to eliminate red meat. Eliminating chicken may take a little more time…until last year we told Claire all the meat we served her was chicken, it was the only way she would eat it, (bad mommy, very bad mommy, lol). So I guess for Claire it won’t be that hard, after all she has only been eating it for a year in her mind, 🙂
God Bless, Julia
