I can't remember where I first heard or read about this book, but I picked it up from my (much-adored) library last night. The synopsis and first few pages were interesting and I felt myself agreeing with the author that yes, I do feel spent. I'm often fatigued, with blurry thoughts, and I don't think I get enough sleep. I'm not going to offer a full review of the book now as I just started it, but I decided I might play along a bit with the 6-week regimen Dr. Lipman recommends. I'm not big on extreme diets, but some conscious detoxing could do me good. 1st step: Eliminate sugar.
This is what I had for breakfast this morning. Instant oatmeal with the following ingredients: oats, sea salt.
Let me clarify that I had some orthodontic work yesterday so soft mush is about the only thing my teeth can take at the present moment. Tomorrow I'll move on to things that are meant to be sugarless, like eggs. The oatmeal wasn't bad. I don't think Dr. Lipman wants me to go the instant route, but this is what I could cobble together. Remember I just picked up the book last night after all!
I have neglected to mention 'til now that I'm on the NaBloPoMo bandwagon again. Hoping I'm successful this time around. And NaBloPoMo's March theme is "giving up." Bye bye, sugar.
Oh, by the way, the cafeteria at my job had a gorgeous homemade blueberry Oreo cheesecake on the counter today. What's up with that?! Plus, I just obtained a copy of Carole Bloom's upcoming book Bite-size Desserts. Hello! Temptation abounds!
