It has been a while since I posted, life got very busy!
I have spent the last three days going through the kitchen cupboards and removing anything processed. About two years ago I did the same thing and everyone in the family ate all foods that were organic and homemade ...then I broke my thumb and was not able to keep up with this lifestyle!
During the approximately 8 months that we did eat from the earth (so to speak) I seen such a change in my children; they were calm & attentive.
So what made me resume this lifestyle, I watched the movie Food Inc. and I am reading the book by Jillian Michael's Master Your Metabolism and the combination of these two lit the spark in both myself and my husband.
I am throwing out alot of food and giving away even more. My cupboards look bare right now until I go shopping and stock up on my healthy ingredients!
I feel better already just making the mental switch over.
This week will be spent getting ready for a week at family Bible Camp and then when we return I will be sourcing out places I can buy personal care & cleaning products that are chemical free...I am hoping to not have to make my own of these but that is always an option if I can't find what I am looking for. I have never taken a serious look at what goes into soaps, lotions and cleaning products even though I have known for some time that there are terrible things in them that cause all kinds of sickness and diseases. I will be checking this area out when we get back from camp and before school gets started for the season now though.
I was down 1 pound this week bring me to 154lbs and a grand total of 55lbs lost. I have not exercised a lot this week but I did get in a 6km run yesterday.
