Truth be told, I turned 40 this year. And I was tired. I had two little kids running around and no time to focus on my health. I was just trying to survive. My birthday came around and I thought it would be cute to try and do a backbend. I could barely get up. Thankfully my girlfriends told me AFTER the fact that their girls watch Youtube videos of gymnastics fails which include serious injuries from backbends. I needed a change.
I was determined to get healthy. Now, I’m not the kind of drastic measure girl. I love food so the idea of trying a traditional, restrictive diet was not in the cards for me. Not to mention that my carnivorous family would probably revolt if I made a massive immediate change. This has to be a slow progression. I knew that I didn’t want a diet per se, but more of a lifestyle change.
Then I remembered that my husband had mentioned the Mediterranean Diet in passing a few times. Boom! Let’s give it a go. As usual, he regretted those few words as I fully integrated the Mediterranean Diet within a few weeks’ time. Gone were his steaks, No helper Cheeseburger Macaroni dinners and in were fish, tomatoes and feta, a whole lot of feta. You would think he would choose his words more wisely around me by now.
