A Day Of Detox And A Promise To Myself

Posted by Susan on August 20, 2009

Today was not so great. Because of my “movie & popcorn night” last night , I did not sleep well. First off I went to bed waaaaayy too late and second , eating crap before bed always makes sleeping difficult if not impossible. That is why I always save all food splurges for the weekend !

When the alarm went off this morning I got up , had my usual PB toast , put on my workout clothes and got all the way downstairs, got on the spin bike for some cardio and decided I just could not do it ! I felt not only tired, but sore and bloated and still queasy from last night.

I got off the bike and went back to bed for an hour and a half ! My philosophy is usually, you play you pay, but I just could not exercise. You know it is bad if I skip a workout ! I was so angry with myself ! It is not like this was something that happened to me at random. I brought the entire thing on myself !

I spent the entire day detoxing …….. or at least trying to !As much of this as I could …………………… (water)

And numerous cups of this ………………………… (green tea )
My stomach was turning all day. I didn’t take pics of food because I hardly eat anything ! The thought of food made me sick ! It was hell !
I am making a promise to myself right here and now, you as my wittness ! I need to wrap my head around the fact that things have changed. That my body has changed in so many more ways then just weight loss.
I can no longer eat like I used to. In order to stay energetic and comfortable, in order to sleep well at night and have general well being , I can NOT eat like I used to. My body does not want it. It makes that fact very , very, clear !
I promise myself that I will not do this anymore. I will (finally!) learn from this situation, and make it my mission to never allow it to happen again !
No one needs a huge mound of popcorn, with gobs of synthetic butter ! No one needs any of the stuff I over do.
I hated how I felt today and I vow to do everything in my power to nake sure it never, EVER happens again !
I am so tired right now, so I am off to bed ! Hopefully I will be able to sleep off this stooper once and for all !

    Sorry to hear you feel so crappy. The one good thing is that it shows just how far you've come.

    Hope you're better by morning.

    Feel better and have a great workout tomorrow. 🙂

    oh susan… havent we all been there?

    i think the greatest thing is when we finally realize it's just not doable anymore.

    yay for change!
