Well to say that I am refocusing is redundant on some posts here over the past few months. We have had a lot going on in our lives and it has been hard for me to focus on my health and eating. Sadly, I have slipped back into some really bad habits and have been eating a lot of gluten, sugar, dairy, and even caffeine.
Last night I took a red velvet cake to a friends. They invited me for dinner and I brought dessert. It was amazing, but what I realized after wards was the chaos it created in my system. I know not to eat that way, we had a great veggie chili for dinner. But, after that slice of cake I could not stop wanting more. I got home and couldn’t stop thinking about it. I dreamed about it last night and have thought a few times today about getting something sweet.
I refrained… luckily I had nothing in the house so I was able to conquer… but the mental obsession bothered me. I decided to get hard core and get the refined crap out of my system again. I’m going to try to start Monday. I already planned to eat pasta tomorrow for Easter, and it’s in the pantry. I’d have to shop for an alternative, so I will finish that and move forward.
