i have to read this book, In Defense of Food, by monday for my bookclub. all of my sisters have read it. they all seem to enjoy health more than me. not that i don't want to be healthy, but i enjoy my gluttony a little more than them, i suppose. but as i start a new year, a year hopefully that becomes a very important one, i will continue on with my fight against my own self to become more healthy. not necessarily to lose weight, as i'd like to gain betweeen 25 - 40 by the end of the year, but maybe to work on my double chin, my huge arms, my ever growing belly. scratch the belly, that's where i want to grow. but i want to grow a baby, not just fat.
moving on - i hope this book inspires me. to "eat food. not too much. mostly plants." for all of you non believers out there, just remember that i did grow in places besides my pant size. i gave up caffeine. most of us never thought we'd see that day, including me. i can grow. i can!
bring on 2010, with a healthier, fitter hayley! [maybe i'll go break in this book on the treadmill!]
