My body won't let me....

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

After voting this morning, I went to a local home and phoned to encourage others to get out to vote. I was asked if I wanted a cup of coffee.... seemed safe enough. Until I went to get a second list to work from. There was the table of goodies..... including almond filled croissants. Somehow by the time the second list was finished so was the croissant.
In very short order my stomach rebelled.
It turns out that after over six years of good eating, especially moving toward a more vegetarian diet over the past few months, my body refused to deal with all that rich nothingness. I was miserable for most of the afternoon with digestive issues.
Guess what... my body is finally over-ruling my emotions and brain. I think this is the definition of a new life style.

    Sorry you had "digestive issues", but I'm sure if you compare how you used to feel on a regular basis with how you usually feel now, you must feel much better now that you're eating more healthfully. That must be a very good feeling!

    I sometimes wish my body would reject all those delicious and non-nutritious tidbits. I haven't quite gotten that far yet though. But yay for you that you have!!! Sorry you had to feel crummy to learn that though. =)
