So yesterday I had lunch with my best friend who I hadn't seen in a while. I decided to celebrate and eat pasta in a "pink sauce" (an amazing creation of alfredo and marinara sauces mixed, for those who don't know. While it tasted wonderful and I so thoroughly enjoyed it, I did NOT enjoy the destruction it wrecked on my digestive tract, no the foul mood it put me in. So here is what I discovered yesterday: Even after just a few days of clean eating and calorie restriction, eating white flour based products is not worth it. The pain in my stomach and the feeling of hopelessness and disgust with myself for failing to do what I needed to do is not even worth the one meal. I know I am going to fall off occasionally, but I am thinking this experiment really will help keep me focused. I also learned that one slip early in the day is like a land slide - I then found myself craving sugary products and eating them. Oh yeah, I think i am much less likely to slip.
So I am thankful for yesterday.This morning it made me get up, make my smoothie with a smile on my face and pack my healthy lunch and snacks with joy.
