Back before Dr. Phil moved his way into my favorite afternoon TV slot, eliminating his good friend and mentor, the Big O – I was a huge fan of “ah ha moments”. You go girl. Or some shit like that.
One of the beauties of self-experimentations like the Whole Life Challenge is the fact that beyond the point score should lie some serious acquisition of self-knowledge. I know this is true no matter how many times you’ve done these or other challenges.
So far I’ve had a few food/wellness related epiphanies myself: (bullet points for Eric’s benefit)
- I feel like the week is complete if I can get one meal out to dinner. Other than pasta, I’ll eat anything out and not feed bad about it for that meal. Once a week and I’m good.
- Eating a bagful of nuts at 10pm means a quicker than usual jog to the bathroom at 5am.
- The Santa Barbara Fish Market kicks ass and should be visited weekly.
- Buying meat/fish/chicken in bulk and then separating and freezing means less trips to the super market and more time fantasizing about football season. Go Giants.
- I should have listened to everyone who told me that rolling out should be a daily event.
- Fish Oil works much more effectively with consistency.
- I miss beer. Not alcohol, just beer but realize that drinking it messes with my sleep and workouts. This sucks. (thanks Marcela)
