This past week was a bit of a downslide for me. I ate out more than usual including a hamburger and fries that tasted great but a few hours later made me feel sluggish. I had chicken pot pie that was delicious and a brownie sundae with my sister. I had beer and wine and more cheese than normal.
I am noticing more and more how various foods make me feel. I am learning what gives me energy and what saps it, what makes me bloated and what fills the hunger without any side effects. I feel like I have a long way to go but one step at a time.
Since I am heading out of town for the rest of the week I'm sure I will be tempted with all types of foods I've been avoiding...that's what happens when you go on vacation. I am sure that I'll have a lot to share when I return next week.
Until then, check in with Karen at Journey Back to Self and please feel free to share your journey here.
