Silly silly girl you've changed

Thursday, July 29, 2010

I had a great day food wise yesterday for most of the day, wholemeal toast breakfast, salad and lean meat lunch, a beautiful freshly dug jacket potato for dinner and snacked on grapes during the day, then came the evening time emoticon
Hubby bought the children some sweets (candy) home one of them a large share bag of minstrels I chose 6 out of the bag, reasonable so far yes?? I didn't put the bag away and before I knew it I had eaten half of the bag one at a time.
I went to bed feeling quite sick awoke at 1am with chronic heartburn and then slept fitfully for the rest of the night, I still feel unwell this morning and really tired.

Ok what did I learn

1) if I eat sweets put the remainder out of reach.

2) my digestive system has changed, my body now is used to healthier fresh foods and cannot tolerate that kind of abuse...

emoticon wow read that last sentence again, when I started here I could have eaten those sweets with no bad side effects.

    Man I did that same thing a few months ago. I ate something that wont have been a big deal 2.5 yrs ago. But now trying to sleep with that in your stomach is like a constant punishment lol

    If I told you, you would not believe me but guess what I am doing at the moment or have been all evening?

    Well done on realising your body has changed - I just hope I dont get indigestion tonight.

    Isn't the human body wonderful in adapting?! It can shout to you now, knowing that you can hear it! You've got built-in self control now!

    Same thing happening here. It is so weird to not feel the same way about junk food.

    Yes, as you eat healthier you actually crave more healthier foods. I rarely eat fried food, do not drink or crave soda, only occasionally crave chocolate and can resist my choc-c cookies.

    Another lesson you've learnt:
    To take something positive from it, not to beat yourself up and go on another binge.
    We are learning from experience.

    It is amazing how much we can eat even though we are not hungry! I always leave the bag or stash in another room or somewhere where I would have to get up, interrupting whatever I am doing at the time so I am deterred from doing so.

    I also remember my first bad reaction to non-healthy food. It was a egg roll from a chinese restaurant. My body was yelling at me and I haven't ate chinese since. Nothing like becoming ill to deter you from eating bad things! Great work so far and don't feel guilty about your indulgence. You fueled your body prior with great nutrients prior. In the long run those rare occasion candies won't matter but your healthy lifestyle will!

    congratulations on your journey. It is strange how our bodies change. I went out for a 3 course dinner the other night and the next day I felt so fuzzy headed. I put this down to a change in my body.
