So I did really well this week as far as eating and exercise go. I had been reading that you should have one day a week where you have a "free day" because it keeps your body from gong in to starvation mode when you start eating less calories. That means (to me) that I can eat what I want within reason on one day. What I want is not necessarily good for me.
Anyway, I ended up eating some foods that I had been looking forward to all week (french fries and a cheeseburger), but guess what? I didn't feel better after I ate them, I felt worse. My stomach hurt, I was tired and even moody. Lesson learned. A free day might work for some people, but for me, a free day needs to still be about what is good for my body. I still need to learn the balance of what I THINK I want and what I actually need.
