but it’s not.
I finished my #whole30 feeling and looking like a rock star!!! Then I went into a work weekend with birthday celebrations and good bye parties for my coworker.
A sugar starbux became a pumpkin cookie, which became 2 or 12. Chips and salsa overload, ice cream cake, a twix bar from the vending machine (what?), not 1 but 2 caramel apples.
I had slain the sugar dragon, I thought I could slowly let things back in, but it wasn’t slow. It was like a mack truck crashing into my gut.
And that great workout schedule I had created myself…it doesn’t work when my stomach feels like it could explode.
Lesson learned: Whole 30, while completely strict, may be closer to an actual representation of what I should be eating. While I won’t call it Whole 30 and I tinker with how much stevia, honey, and such I will allow, I’m playing close attention to how food makes me feel.
I’m not trying to complicate things by any means….I know what feeling good feels like…and I imagine that is what God intends for me!!!
So I’m back on a exploration- balancing the foods I crave, the foods I want to splurge on, and the foods that fuel me!!! I hope that this paradigm shift into looking at food this way can help me continue this road to better health!!!
