Cottage Cheese is the new Oatmeal

Yes, it’s me.

I am still here.

Still workin’ hard, studyin’ hard, living completely out of balance….sigh.

I will be finished my second course of the MBA on Sunday night. Sunday night, while most of the world will be glued to the TV, watching the Oscars, I will be hammering out my last assignment for my Human Resources Management course. Someone tell me who wins in all the big categories, OK? Not that it will mean too much as I haven’t been to a movie since I started the MBA. But a gal can dream…

JD and I have been doing a bit of studying on nutrition lately, in our free moments. There is a lot of information out there on grains, whole and otherwise, and how they may not be doing a body good.

So, tying in nicely with the Lenten season, we are going to give up grains. Which will be difficult for a couple of carboholics such as we. Extremely. Like giving up smoking, or maybe crack, I think. (Sorry Whitney, rest in peace).

A experiment with 2 subjects. To see how we feel on a diet of vegetables, fruits, protein (including dairy) and fat only. You might call me Paleo Woman. I’ve been looking at the Paleo websites out there too. To see if it makes sense, and so far it mostly does. Except for the raw milk only thing, or the no dairy at all thing. And I really don’t want to be eating steak for breakfast. Not at this point in the journey, anyways.

So, for me, cottage cheese is the new morning oatmeal. And more vegetables are the new bread/potatoes. Looking forward to food cravings being reduced (that much I remember from trying Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet a number of years ago), and of course hoping to lose the extra…ahem…me, that is hanging on, especially at this…ahem…special time of my life.

I’ll keep you posted.
