Ok, I am the WORST blogger ever. I need to finish my Rock n Roll Seattle recap AND write up my Scott Jurek “Eat and Run” interview, but I’m interrupting those to get something off my chest.
I’m addicted to bread.
And its a serious problem. It’s been 3+ weeks since we gave up ALL animal products (errr another thing I need to recap) and processed foods. The only loaf bread we have in the house
other than the beer bread I baked is the Ezekial sprouted bread. Low glycemic stuff which should keep me from eating less of it.
Nope,I even love that kinda hard,filled with seeds bread.
And whole wheat tortillas? Don’t even get me started. I will eat them plain.
Pancakes? I devour. (umm did anyone see the title of my last post?)
Pizza. Well duh.
Do you see where I’m going here? In the past 3 weeks Charles has lost 13 pounds from out diet change and I have lost *drumroll please* 3 pounds. Now, I didn’t change my diet to lose weight. We started eating plant strong for health reasons but ummmm if I’m honest with myself I’m eating bread strong. (sprouted grains,have to keep it in the refrigerator, $5 a loaf bread strong)
Bread has always been a weakness of mine, I can remember Thanksgiving’s growing up where I would forgo the meat/veggies/whatever and would bee line to the home made rolls.
Don’t get me wrong, I think food SHOULD be enjoyed. But, I also think food shouldn’t CONTROL you.
And bread controls me.
It wakes me up in my sleep begging to be eaten. It calls my name in its sweet siren song. It makes me feel weak.
But that’s about to change. I am stronger than bread. I am stronger than bread. I am stronger than bread.
I have to be able to make peace with bread. I have to prove to myself I can overcome something so
tasty silly that has a hold over me.
I’m giving up bread (pizza,pancakes,naan,flour based tortillas,etc) this week. No,not forever. I just want to show myself I’m not weak and hopefully a little time away will make moderation in the future easier.
Today is bread free day #2.
Wish me luck.
What are you addicted to?
