So far, so good, I hope. The grumpiness has passed, hopefully, not to return, but I will not hold my breath on that one. I have started to enjoy cooking more, oddly enough. This from a self-professed lover of almost all aspects of the kitchen. These past few days preparing food has been oddly different, a bit more exciting than usual. That I cannot explain. The biggest food issue I'm having is getting enough vegetables in my meals each day. I love all sorts of vegetables and have some of my favorites in the refrigerator ready to go, yet I'm still not eating them. I've got to work on that.
Trying to talk my daughter into doing this with me has been enlightening. She's thinking about it. She's health conscious. She already prepares most of her meals. She's an excellent cook. So it seemed a perfect fit. She said she'd look over the details on the website and give it a try.
A bit later when I spoke to her, all enthusiastic knowing she coldn't help but love it, I was in for a surprise.
"Doesn't it look easy?" I asked, expecting ready agreement. What I heard instead was a resounding "No!" I was thinking, but, but, but.... Kristen then reminded me it was virtually what I was already eating; I'd had to make only minor adjustments. She, on the other hand, would drastically alter her current way of eating. She would also have to make adjustments for her family, one of whom is a vegetarian. I was asking a lot.
Let me rephrase that; I am asking a lot. This program offers to change your life in 30 days, and darn it, that's worth fighting for. So I'll try to be supportive and encouraging without being downright obnoxious. Though in truth I'll probably seem downright obnoxious from her end.
