Well, I really blew it last Friday! I had fried catfish and okra all breaded and two hushpuppies! I was stuffed and woke up that way the next morning. Not a good feeling. Then after getting hot during the day on Saturday got a green tea drink and BREADED mozzarella sticks for lunch. On Sunday every joint in my body ached. I didn’t feel like doing anything and had to take 2 Aleve’s which didn’t really work.
Since I have been completely avoiding wheat and having no joint pain issues this episode really drove home the fact that what I eat so affects how I feel. It was enough to make eating that way very unattractive to me, well until the next time I have to have some catfish! Tough! Old habits hard to break.
A big issue for me is the fact that I have to cook all the time to have food available to eat. In my mind, I always feel that I have more important things to be doing than working in the kitchen! Guess it all boils down to priorities and the more I eat like I need to the more clear it is that it’s necessary. Funny though, I don’t resent giving up foods, I’m grateful and proud that I’m finally getting somewhere with my diet.
It appears that the weight I have lost was from the wheat and sugar products I was eating. Now it’s sort of leveled off and I need to go steps further.
This week’s new food habit:
- Track my food intake with www.myfitnesspal.com app to see where I’m getting too many calories to lose weight faster!
- Eat less!
- Keep up with my other food committments.
