It has become clear in the last two weeks that my sudden lack of motivation to keep at this low cholesterol ‘program’ has a bigger root cause than my mostly-positive blood test results. Got that good-ish news a few weeks ago, and I am still not cooking dinner.
Worse, on Sunday, after picking my son up from driver’s ed, we drove TO THE NEXT TOWN to grab some Wendy’s. The other 2 times I went to Wendy’s it was at least subliminally motivated – I’d driven by one. But this time, we trekked there.
Sad. Truly sad.
I don’t think that I can blame my test results for my current lack of motivation.
Maybe it’s just that this low cholesterol thing just takes so much PLANNING. And I’m sick and tired of it. Here’s how I feel about it at the moment (huge whining warning):
- I’m having trouble not shouting, “I don’t expletive deleted know” when my teenage son asks what’s for dinner.
- My husband has stopped asking about dinner – and is dialing for takeout.
- I’m tired of oatmeal every single day. Which is frustrating because I never got tired of a bagel and lox. Ever. I ate that every single morning for YEARS.
Even the comment posted by Jennifer L. with a great cookbook reco hasn’t kicked my butt into gear. As I adore and collect cookbooks, the fact that I didn’t rush out to buy the one she recommended is alarming.
OK, this has to change. Jennifer, thanks for your inspiring comment and cookbook recommendation. I am off to find The 28 Day Mediterranean Diet Plan on Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
