Is this a test?

I came home to the aroma of baking bread. Whaaaa. My mom was baking bread. Yesterday, we discussed how important it is for family to be supportive of those that are trying to live a healthier lifestyle.

Hello? Did we not just talk about being supportive? My mom doesn't even care for bread that much. At least, that what she says. So why, pray tell, is there bread baking in our kitchen?

Then she says, well, you have try just a bite! You have to know how GOOD this bread tastes. *blink*blink*excuuuuse me?*

I just politely said, no thanks. One bite would just make me KNOW it was good and then I'd want more. Honestly, it wouldn't even have to taste that good. I'd just want to eat it because it's bread. Pathetic, huh?

Well, ya know what? I felt just fine about NOT eating a single crumb. I've made it through today without one bite of refined carbs or whole grains, for that matter. I need to avoid them for a few days to give my body a chance to get over them. Then, I can face whole grains and stay in control. They have a power over me like nothing else.

The weather here has turned fall-ish. It rained buckets this morning but after the rain left town, we had clear skies and cool temps. Perfect.

Have a wonderful Friday. Take care and don't forget to drink your water!


  1. Bread is my Kryptonite, too.

    Congrats on staying in control. Have a great weekend.

  2. You go girl! Way to say no and stick to it :-)

  3. Way to go on resisting the bread!
    Is Mom scared you'll change too much and abandon her or something?

    I could eat a whole loaf.

  4. Bread is my Kryptonite! You're stronger than me! :)

  5. Way to go! Sometimes people can be food pushers. Even though they do it out of love it can come across as trying to sabotage your efforts. Let your mom know how important it is for you to continue on your healthy path and that even though you know she means well, "just a bite" will lead you to a place you don't want to go.
