First Steps

Broke out my "Hip Chicks Guide to Macrobiotics" to get preparations underway for the big switch.

So the first step starts tomorrow with the changing of the grain. So I've dug out the rice cooker and my bags of brown rice; and started digging through recipes. Hit the grocery store and got my supplies.

Tonight I had an almost entirely macrobiotic dinner. Italian herb polenta, steamed broccoli and spinach salad. My ranch dressing was the only non-macro food item. It was pretty yummy, but I'm going to have to get used to the polenta texture.

Tomorrow I'm off the feeling sorry for myself parade and hitting the gym, ditching the sweats and raiding my own closet to look good, I'm a firm believe that if you look good, you'll feel good.


  1. This is just one step in a long journey. You'll get through it and come out stronger on the other side.

  2. You will do great! Stay positive (I know it isn't easy!)

  3. Thanks guys. Even I'm tired of my whiny-ness and exhaustion. So I'm back to bitchy and sarcastic Kate tomorrow, just with a side of ITP.
