Above is your link for today with some useful information from Allison once again!
Please take a look, it pays to be informed.
As Lis says, Knowledge is power! Lol
Yesterday I increased my water and lemon intake quite a bit....but I know I am still not eating enough in the day. I think the cold is not helping either. So as soon as I get better I really am going to focus on eating decent meals, and not eating like a bird. I do know that once the fresh produce starts coming in that is local and cheaper, I will eat a lot more good stuff!
I am enjoying reading "The Plan" and it is very interesting! I am still trying to get my head around it all, but I will as I get more familiar with the book and website and I know some of you have done it , so I have a "go to" there if I have questions! ( thanks for that!)
Yesterday I got a lot done on the manuscript, and Dh was supposed to go to a meeting last night and I was going to use the time to do more work. He ended up being too exhausted to go and so I went grocery shopping instead. I can't believe what I did, it only hit me AFTER THE FACT, but I promised to bring him home a treat, So I got him a slice of cheesecake ( very small) because I know he loves it and I got a carrot cake square. I was tired and I remember thinking I should get the chocolate mousse type dessert...I knew there was a reason why, but dismissed it while I debated the cost, the mousse dessert was a dollar more expensive, so without thinking, and waiting for that "reason that I could not think of" to dawn on me, I got the cheaper option: Carrot cake. ( also happens to be a favourite)
Anyway I get home, it was 8:30 pm, had a hot bath and we had our treats!
Only as I was going to bed did it dawn on me!
UGH!!!! NOW I REMEMBER THE REASON I SHOULD HAVE PICKED THE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE OPTION!!!! - WHEAT!!!
I can tolerate small amounts of sugar and I can tolerate dairy etc, but wheat, NO! NO! NO!
Ugh! Seriously, I can't believe I did that! You would have thought I would know by now! So ladies, If I can make a slip up like that, anyone can and I need to move on! It was not an intentional slip, but I should know better. Of course the scale is up this morning, Not a surprise! Sigh! Lesson learned!
So back to my lemon water, dandelion tea and THINKING before I eat! I bought LOADS of veggies and fruit and am ready for a good day!
I didn't sleep the best last night, but I think once the congestion goes, I will sleep like a ...well the saying is baby, but babies don't sleep well.
My son talks in his sleep! LOL
Anyway I hope that you all will have a great day! Learn from MY mistakes...if you have a niggling feeling about something, wait until it surfaces before going ahead with your seemingly innocent choice.
The good news is I am working on my water intake, less coffee than ever, so that is good!
One glass of water down already! YAY!
