I got a gluten free pizza the other day and it made me feel awful. I'm not sure if it was contaminated by gluten, if it's the refined carbs, the omega-6 oils, the chemicals/toxins, the cheese, the FODMAPs, whatever, the heck, I don't know what it is that made me feel so ill, but..
Ya know what I DO know? I NEVER feel sick or regret a meal that I cook at home. Never ever ever. Because I use good ingredients, and I cook everything with love and positive intention for nourishing my body.
It's time to stop being lazy. Sometimes it's difficult when I'm feeling fatigued or sore or terrible to get the motivation to cook, but I can have stuff in the freezer ready to go. It really is worth it for me to do this and I just need to remind myself of that sometimes.
I am feeling much better today... the effects of the pizza are nearly passed and I will not be repeating the same decision again. Realistically, I know there will be setbacks and slip ups in this eating plan, but I'm going to just see how long I can keep it up, and then if I do make a poor decision at some point, come right back to it without skipping a beat.
I'm making progress on my goals for this week, slowly but surely. I'm not reaching all of them, but I'm taking steps and I'm reaching some of them, and that's progress and I'm proud of it. It's producing anxiety, but i'm just gonna keep breathing, and letting it go. Tomorrow I intend to get the utilities situation figured out, and that will be a big burden lifted off of my shoulders. I may have a lead on a roommate, I'll blog about that once it materializes.
Anyway, I'm taking steps in the right direction. It's out of my comfort zone, but that's exactly why I need to keep doing it.
