The week seems to have begun pretty well in this corner of the world. Monday finds me doing well on my campaign to stamp out refined sugar and flour and to try to make better food choices in general. My depression of last summer and fall did not exactly result in healthful eating. As it turns out "Screw it, what does it matter anyway?" is not an effective nutritional philosophy. Who knew?
But that was yesterday. Today I am a girl who ate multiple vegetables and consumed no refined sugar or processed foods whatsoever. Today I am a rockstar. Because I am a rockstar who needs a carrot and good health is apparently not reward enough on its own, I have deemed it so that if I can faithfully stick with my plan until my mom's birthday (August 13), I will get a special prize to be determined by me. I wonder what I will buy myself? I hope it's nice. Maybe I should drop some hints, just to be sure.
Beyond that, today was also the day that I decided while I was talking to my friend M., who has been forced to go work in Hawaii for a couple weeks that I am woefully deficient in having visited the islands (also the Southern and Eastern parts of the US, but Hawaii is the particularly sad part). I feel this is something that needs to be remedied as soon as I am willing be seen in public in shorts. It could take a while. Perhaps that will be the grand prize.
For now, however, I am tired and therefore going to go to bed and read my way a little closer to completing The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, installment one of the "classics I should have read by now, but haven't" catch up list. Only a jillion more to go...
