So, we have decided to embark on her little experiment to rid our lives of excess. Month #1 is food. I think we would all agree that Americans in general have/eat an excess amount of food. I think this month is to help bring into focus just how blessed we are in the choices we have. So for the month of August we will eat seven things:
ChickenYou will note that coffee is not one of my seven foods...
I'm not sure how to deal with that just yet. In fact, I can feel tears welling up in my eyes as I consider that idea. This experiment begins on Wednesday, so like any rational caffeine addict I have started weaning myself from coffee...
Ha! Nope. No weaning. I figure why deprive myself before I have to, you know? So, Wednesday I will go cold turkey from my hot, half-and-half lightened, agave-sweetened, Starbucks-enabled, 2+ cup-a-day habit. I figure that's a smart approach. Then, as Jen says, I can blame any mood swings or irrational behavior on my condition.
