Clean Eating and Random thoughts

Thursday, May 31, 2012

On this journey to health, I am striving to eat clean. I do really well for breakfast and my morning snack, but then somewhere around lunch it all falls apart. I am not sure why I do this to myself. It is self-sabotage. Deep down I think to myself that I can't do this, it is to hard. Sometimes my mind is my own worst enemy. For quite a while I've been in a cycle of doing pretty well during the week, but then I completely blow it on the weekend and undo any good I might have done and end up losing and gaining the same 5 or so pounds week after week. However, I must keep telling myself: You've done this before and you CAN do this again! It is a constant struggle.

Well, before I get completely off track, the eating clean (when I do it) is going really well. I am amazed at how quickly my body has adjusted to the cleaner eating and now I find that I can't eat as much of the crap I used to. Like mexican, oh how I love my mexican. Hubby and I went there one night last week and if was so yummy, but about 10 minutes after we were done eating when all that food hit my belly, I felt AWFUL! All those carbs and refried stuff sent my clean tummy for a loop and it wasn't happy at all. One thing I am learning I can't do without is lime and/or lemon water. My craving for my afternoon carbonation (diet Dr Pepper) is fading. This weekend I had one and it didn't even taste good. In a way that sorta makes me sad, I had cut back my soda habit to one a day a while back and really enjoyed my one afternoon pick me up. Supposedly, lemon/lime water is really good for you, so I am trying to be ever so vigilant about taking better care of myself.

So, I will continue to strive to eat clean all day most days of the week. Ok, here's to the next week of triumphs and joys and probably a bump or two in the road! All the best to my fellow sparkers!
