Yesterday, I decided that I was going to use up very little points through out the day and save the majority of them for my special inauguration dinner I was making.
I had oatmeal in the morning and broccoli for lunch. For dinner I had taco/burritos with homemade flour tortillas, fresh lean beef, guacamole, sour cream, and a bit of cheese. Basically all the stuff I should avoid when having a healthy burrito/taco. It was sooo good.
I'm not a regular beef eater. I'll have an occasional hamburger, but that's usually it. I rarely ever buy beef or pork for the house. Oh boy, I don't think my body likes it anymore.
I had dinner last night about 7ish/8ish. I didn't eat to fully explode but I was full, and when my food settled in I felt like I was carrying a rock in my stomach. It didn't hurt... it was just like a rock – maybe a boulder. I went to bed with my boulder, and when I woke up (late and feeling sluggish) this morning I was still full! Full enough to not want breakfast. Heck it’s almost lunch time and I’m still satisfied/full! WTF?!
I made my oatmeal and have it here with me, just in case I get hungry later. I'll just have that when I get hungry and have my lunch later.
It's going to be a broccoli day. I need to clear out this crap out of my body. I don't think my body agrees with beef anymore and right now the way I'm feeling I'm okay with that. I can stick to my poultry, fish and occasional hamburger.
I'm not going to fully blame the beef, I honestly think it was the combination of rich, fatty, yumminess that formed the rock and is making me feel blah right now. Whatever was the cause, I didn't like the feeling. I couldn't even get out of bed this morning. I can't and won't do that to myself again.
I think this is a sign that my efforts towards living a healthier lifestyle are working. My body’s rebelling against that stuff. It wants fruits and vegetables. Funny how your body adapts so quickly.
Tomorrow's weigh-in. I need to clear some of the crap out before then, so it's broccoli and water today... maybe a little fruit. I did better this week then I did last week. Tomorrow starts a brand new week and that means I'll do even better next week then I did this one!
If I can clear this boulder out, I should have a loss.
