So I had a couple of really stressful days this past week and I noticed that I was absolutely starting to crave
chocolate and carbs the more stressed out I got each day. Somehow, though, I managed to stave off the worst of my cravings and stay on track until my "off day", which was today.
And today was my little sister's Halloween party. I'm pretty lenient on myself if it's an off day for me AND a holiday, so you can imagine the JUNK I ate today. Yeah, massive amounts of chips, dips, cookies
, and pizza
right along the sides of 11 and 12 year old girls who have the metabolisms of cheetahs.
It was great actually. Great because I don't do it often, and great because I know I'm not tempted to do it often.
However, one thing I noticed after all this...... I got so absolutely crazily tired... no, exhausted
, I couldn't believe it! I slept well last night, I didn't have much to do all day until the party (I was the gypsy fortuneteller for the party).... yet why was I so darned sluggish, out of it, and tired??
Then it hit me.... all that sugar (which my body isn't used to anymore), all that grease, all those unneeded carbs..... my body was either in shock or in overdrive trying to process all of it! I mean, even my brain
It makes me wonder how in the heck I EVER flippin' lived that way before, eating all that crap! No wonder I walked around feeling like there was a permanent fog in my brain....
Talk about hindsight...
