So, my body is PISSED at me.
And not because of all the bruises that I have or my jammed (and purple/black) pinky. Or because I am sick and have a sore throat.
Nope. It is pissed at the last 24~48 hours of eating. And now I have a headache that won't go away even with my never-fail excedrin migraine with a coke zero. Because I ate like crap. And I think it is because I ate too much sugar. Which honestly, I am surprised by. I have been doing well lately. My eating habits have significantly changed. I didn't think that stepping off track one day would impact me this much, but it has.
I've allowed myself to fall off course a few times before--usually it is on the weekends--and I repeat the pattern--feel guilty and contemplate my choices. This time I don't feel guilty. I feel gross. I feel run-down (hopefully that is just my cold). I feel like I want to barf. I feel like I want to eat vegetables and fruits for the next month straight.
Here are some of the things I have eaten that my body is pissed about:
Sampling of the following that I made/bought this weekend:
Pound cake (homemade)
rice krispie treats (homemade)
pizza (domino's cheese small)
cheesey bread (with garlic butter dipping sauce)
waffles (yes, plural)
creamer in my coffee (full-fat/sugar/flavored)
1/2 a red velvet cakeball (this might have put me over the edge...holy sweet/rich)
Seriously, as I type I want to barf. Gross.
I am proud that I recognize this, but also I know that I hurt my body this weekend by not giving it what it needs to recover from the workouts I have been putting it through--especially Saturday's practice.
I have noticed that on the weekends our fridge/pantry is pretty bare and lacking in my normal fruits and veggie selection. I either need to have us adjust our grocery shopping day, or get more to last me the FULL week--including the weekend so I don't give in to temptation and laziness.
Seriously I feel like crap. This might be a good thing--maybe I won't overeat at my birthday dinner tonight.
