whole foods ruined my life! (and an NSV)
Wednesday, May 07, 2014
ugh, someone put me out of my misery!
there was a time not so long ago when i would eat processed foods without even thinking about it. hot pockets for my morning snack, frozen burritos and taquitos for dinner. frozen pizzas were a life saver! no better snack then chips and dip.
2014 i decided to cut out the processed food. it's been going pretty well. the last month and a half i have been going very strong with the whole foods. aside from diet soda. i cannot kick that habit! otherwise, i've avoided the bad food, i've had good food on hand. i've planned snacks so i'm not starving and cave to bad food cravings or easy access.
i've been feeling great! i rarely get a head ache. digestive issues are due to too many veggies, not foreign food stuffs in my body. i've had more energy, i've lost weight, my skin looks great. all this amazing stuff from eating whole, nourishing food.
then today happens!
i get up first so i can prepare breakfast and lunch with no one bugging me. i had just gotten out of the shower when i heard a thump. i thought it was dh in the other bathroom, but then i realized it didn't make sense. i poked my head out of the master bath to see him sitting up in bed looking confused. i said, "what was that?" he shook his head and got out of bed. there was another noise. i grabbed a towel since i wasn't wearing anything and followed him out to the hall. i heard a noise from dd's room and said "she fell out of her crib". sure enough she started crying and he opened the door and there she stood. she's ok, just scared. but my morning was shot!
he took her to bed with him while i finished in the bathroom and then i took her to get her milk and some quick breakfast. she insisted on sitting on my lap while she (slowly) ate and there went my morning prep time. dh got out of the bathroom so i could get lunches assembled, but breakfast time was not going to happen.
i get to work and what do i see? leftover pizza in the fridge. perfect! except that my body rebelled and now i feel like crud! i want a nap so bad. my tummy is churning and i keep getting faint cramps and other weird, random issues in the gut area. i feel a faint headache threatening to come on. i'm chugging water like crazy.
and now i want more junk! what? have you ever had a period where you ate real well then had fast food and just wanted junk for a day or two after? that's how i am right now! the awful stuff they put in "food" just makes you want more and more. why can't those chemicals be in veggies? haha. my tummy is like, never again! my brain is saying, mmm...cheeseburger! i think my tummy will win this battle.
eventually i'll be out of my misery and loving life again. it just may be later tonight.
as for the nsv:
as mentioned above, i grabbed a towel to wrap around me when i had to leave the bathroom. it fit! omg! it fit! a short time ago the towel provided no other purpose then drying me off. now i can wrap it around me! granted, it probably wouldn't have provided enough coverage to answer the door or something (does that even happen outside of tv land?). i didn't even realize how big the towel had gotten until i was done with it, then it hit me! what a great feeling. i didn't really get to reflect on it til a few hours afterward with all the drama. i'll look further into this tomorrow morning.
