I've decided a while ago that I was going to make a few changes to my lifestyle and habits. The big impetus for all this is to get more energy into me. I hate feeling tired, and I don't like being distracted. Furthermore, I don't like generally being unhealthy. I'm not the worse I ever was, but I think I can be better. So many people have speculated that I survived a serious case of meningitis and made it through intact, because I was a healthy and active person. I can't say I'm that same person I was two years ago.
I just came back from the grocery store. I totally destroyed my little cart by lugging around 2 large backs of topsoil for my soon to be instated daffodil garden. But I also picked up a messload of fruit. I now have a bowl full of bananas, clementines, pears, and a couple of pomegranates. I also have a large handful of lychees in another bowl. I love lychees. On top of that, I picked up some frozen field berries. I always manage to rot fresh berries, so in my world, frozen berries are a genius innovation. I also purchased a single serving blender.
Blender + frozen field berries + soy milk + organic honey = yummy smoothie. I made it as soon as I got home. I think I'm about to become a smoothie person.
So anyway, I know I'm going to be in Toronto for tomorrow and Saturday for a birthday party (and coming back to St. Kitts for New Year's) but until then, I will be subsisting mainly on fruit and fresh vegetables. All this in preparation for a month of no caffeine, no refined sugar, no alcohol. I'm not sure what I'll be giving into first, but I sure as heck am going to try.
