So I’ve been battling again lately. Vacation eating with non-vacation eating. It took me a few days of being back home to face realize that eating a bad dinner every night plus a sweet is a bad bad thing, because it makes me feel bad. Sometimes we need a little reminder of why certain foods are usually off limits. As I age I realize that there are more and more of “those” foods. Bad foods that make me feel awful.
I sure remember the days when I could eat pizza and ice cream every day without feeling sick. I remember when Halloween rolled around and I’ve eat candy all day long. Now just thinking of that type of food reminds me how horrible I feel after eating them. It’s a good thing but every so often I forget just how bad that food is. Like a vacation when I ate chocolate or a cookie plus a bad dinner like burgers and fries or pizza. All so bad for me and every morning I awoke feeling full and groggy.
It’s been about a week since I’ve been back. I did a detox of cutting out all grains, sugars and dairy. It was hard, but the best decision because it got me back into a “reality” mindset that I needed.
Lately I am loving veggies. I love making juices from my favorites. Like carrot, apple and spinach juice. Sounds gross, but it is really good and sweet tasting. I am also loving apples and berries. I read some skinny “rules” from biggest loser, and one was eat and apple or berries every single day. I love how good and clean eating them makes me feel. I also am itching for fall to take over this heat wave. #Ifuckingwishitwasfall so I have been drinking teas and eating soups and doing everything I can to “act” like it is my favorite time of the year.
As far as working out, I am still in love with my elliptical machine and started doing some short runs/walk with the kids again since it’s not 110 out anymore but still 90-100’s. I can’t wait for 70-80’s and I’ll be able to call myself a “runner” again.
