|I know I am being bad......|
I have been thinking a lot about being a mom and trying hard to be a good role model. I can't help but to think about what lessons I have been teaching my kids as far as what to eat and not eat. I mean, I assume that children are supposed to be snacking on Goldfish and yogurt and cereal and... and... and all this food that I think has probably made me feel sick for so long. I can't help but to wonder how their bodies are handling their diet. Last night I prepared myself the Paleo meatloaf, broccoli and cauliflower, and the kids and Jason ate regular meatloaf (aka cheese and breadcrumbs involved) and I made them brown rice to accompany it. I felt compelled to make them the brown rice, like something was lacking on their plate if they only ate meat and veggies. Now I am asking myself, what was the nutritional value of that rice? Should I have included it? I think these 30 days are going to convince me to look at my family's diet and not just my own. Is what is working for me the diet that is right for them? I can barely wait for Luke's 2 year old well check up in May. I hope our pediatrician is ready for the caveman version of my past self!
Dinner was delicious...baked turkey breast. carrots, peas, butternut squash....really good and satisfying. Tomorrow I go to the gym again!
My Family...worth getting up early in the morning to go to the gym and avoid my favorite foods
....to be healthy for them!
