There's a commercial on TV that talks about one good decision leading to other good decisions, and a bad decision leading to other bad decisions. The person chooses to eat a piece of fruit instead of coffee cake (for example) and continues to make similar decisions throughout the day - salad vs. burger, etc. I believe this to be true. For me, my vice is sugar - and all it takes is one little bit to mess up all the momentum.
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I was writing down every single thing I put into my mouth. I gave up sugar, gluten and dairy and felt really good about it. All it took was a measly cookie on Christmas day, and I'm back to fighting the sugar addiction. Since Christmas, I think I've had something sweet (namely chocolate) every single day. It's just a week, you say, but to my skin it's like 8 steps backward. All the prospecting of the future and celebrating of the past mean nothing if I can't deal with the here and now.
Here's what I ate yesterday.
Green shake + fiber
Vitamin C, Mushroom caps, Probiotics
Decaf coffee with soy milk
2 pieces of chocolate from work...
Texas de Brazil salad buffet with friends--
Salad with brazilian salsa/dressing
2 pc. sushi
Garlic shrimp cocktail
3 slices manchego cheese
1 pc. prociutto
Roasted red peppers
Wow...I feel like trash today, trash! It felt like my eyes were bleeding this morning...okay not really...but yea, too much food last night = tired/sad ME.
Tonight we'll be having a raw meal, zuccini pesto pasta over mixed greens, I'll post the recipe and photos tomorrow. D and I both agree that we're SO ready to detox. We're done with these sloth bodies...
