My Foray Into the Mediterranean Diet…

So, we’ll see what happens. I decided two weeks ago that there were going to need to be some pretty drastic eating changes taking place for me to be able to get this PCOS thing under control. The problem is that, in true Melanie fashion, when it comes to meal planning (as with blogging), I get overwhelmed and end up planning absolutely nothing. It’s a big part of my life that I just can’t seem to fix. It’s why my dresser is piled high with clothes that I haven’t put away in three years quite a long time.

I figured that I might actually have some success if I looked up am eating plan and just followed that until I see some results and can strike out on my own. So, after a Google search, I found a four week plan on the Good Housekeeping site. It’s a little dated (“enjoy diet soda for something sweet!”), but the major principles are pretty sound. I’ve come up with some modifications because the carb count was too high for someone with PCOS. We’ll see how it goes. Baby steps.

Here’s a pic from last night of me with my new “nephew.” One of my best friends had her baby a few weeks ago, and since I’m an only child, I get to play “Aunt Mel” to my friends’ kids. His name is Levi, and he’s absolutely precious.
