I've made the following my goals:
- no red meat for the month of april
- no pasta or noodles for the month of april
- don't eat ice cream
- generally cut down on carbs
Those four things are probably my biggest vices when it come to eating, especially pasta. I eat insane amounts of pasta (my favorite food). For example, eating 3/4th of a pound of pasta in one sitting for me is absolutely no problem, and if I wanted I could probably finish off the whole 1lb package. And I usually eat pasta anywhere from 1-3 times per week, so you can see how much pasta I consume (a lot). Same thing with noodles.
Anyways so while the health benefits will (hopefully) be noticeable over this 1 month period, the interesting part for me is just the challenge of controlling myself enough to follow through. It's all part of a big long process of self improvement, and developing this skill is one of my biggest challenges. I figured starting off with food (relatively easy) would be a good start.
So far I've made it exactly 7 days and have kept my word. Tomorrow (well, today as I'm writing this blog) is day 8! Hope I can post an update at the end of the month and say I've kept my promise to myself.
