Making it loud and clear.

Saturday, July 06, 2013

A week ago I was feeling awesome. My mood was upbeat, my energy was high, and even though the plummeting scale seemed to have hit a plateau I was feeling good about it. Then my daughters graduation party day was finally here. I didn't eat poorly for the most part. I did however have a ton of leftovers as I usually do. So for the past week I have eaten whatever, whenever and yesterday I felt like a mac truck had run me over. No energy, headaches, stomach issues, you get my point. It was obvious that my body was letting me know I was eating wrong and wanted to go back to my healthy ways. So today I'm going back to the way I was eating before the party. I truly do not enjoy feeling OLD and that is how I would describe myself right now. So with this new bit of insight keeping to the straight and narrow may be more easily done this time around. emoticon

    I have no idea why we do this to ourselves, but we all do. Overheating is the ultimate addiction. It's not as if we could quit cold turkey, we need to eat to survive. On some level, even though we know we are eating unhealthy food, yet we do it anyway and suffer the consequences of our bad choices for the ensuing few days.
I have invited my favorite friends to dinner the last few evenings, Ben and Jerry. I can eat a pint at one sitting, which I did three times this week. I am also moderately lactose intolerant. Yeah, right, not a good choice and now my tummy is killing me.
Wouldn't you love to know what it is within ourselves that triggers the erratic behavior? Like you, today I am recommitting (again) to a healthier lifestyle.
Good luck!
