Clean eating? hmmmm...
Thursday, January 17, 2013
I hurt my back back in December. Not anything new that I deal with. I go to the chiropractor and he fixes me up. However this time I waited a little late. It wasn't hurting that bad and so I let it go on. I haven't talked about this on here because I don't want it to seem like an excuse. I'm still working out. I'm still going to Zumba but it is affecting me. This past week it really started hurting, especially at night. I've been tossing and turning and not sleeping very well. Wednesday I broke down and took off work to go see Ed the Chiro :) He was surprised at how "out of whack" I was. He fixed me up. I will probably go back tomorrow bc he told me if it still hurts Friday to come back in. SO I was thinking last night I was going to finally get some good sleep. I went to Zumba at 6:00. Got home about 7:00. The boys had all eating yummy frozen chicken nuggets (YUK! the word Yummy there is VERY sarcastic!) So I heated up some chicken & put it in a whole wheat wrap with some salsa. At 3:30 this morning, my chest was screaming at me for eating it! I had heartburn. My husband said while I was sleeping I sounded like I was wrestling a bobcat. I finally got up about 4:00 and never went back to sleep. Looks like my body is subconsciously waking me up REAL EARLY - see previous blog about wanting to get up earlier. LOL!
All of this really got me to thinking about what I put in my mouth even more than I already do. 5 years in & out of spark will make you read more labels than you ever thought you would in your life. (some of you know exactly what I mean) I'm also subscribed to 100 Days of Real Food & some other clean eating blogs. However I have never really tried it - like researched it and said "ok I'm gonna do this" I think I'd like to give this a try. I'm not sure how difficult it will be. But with Spring coming and all the fresh produce it shouldn't be too hard. I'm going to research exactly what it means to eat clean. I mean is cream cheese & sour cream included in that? Those are the things I'd like to find out. I had once upon a time subscribed to Clean Eating magazine. I still have those mostly unread copies. Think I better dust those boogers off! :)
