You Be Illin'

R and I are doing fairly well with our eating habits, though we fell off the wagon pretty hard this weekend.  He was out of town for basically all weekend, and I was too on Friday.  And we had burgers and fries for lunch that day.  Ummm...and for dinner too.

I know, that's a bad meal plan in any book.  But the thing is, after just four days of eating healthy foods, I actually felt ill from the burger and fries.  The second time anyway.  It was a bigger burger the second time.

So, I got back on the wagon Saturday, pretty well anyway.  We had Taco Bell last night because we were in a hurry and out running errands, and I felt ill after that too.  Though feeling ill after Taco Ball probably isn't unusual.

I've walked every day this past week except Saturday.  And I'm planning to go to yoga tomorrow night.  I haven't been in weeks.  I think it will be good for me, both physically and mentally.  I've been feeling a little off, and I think skipping yoga for so long is part of it.

So, my plan is to keep up my positive efforts, continue to avoid the scale, and try harder to avoid foods that make me ill.

Don't worry about falling off the wagon, just get back on that sucker! It is when you run when you see it coming that is a problem.

Everyone falls off the wagon from time to time. Do not be too hard on yourself! Your body is starting to react to your good diet, though, which is excellent news. When bad food makes you feel bad you will naturally not crave it! Note: this has yet to happen with me and chocolate which leads me to conclude that my body NEEDS it!

No big deal. You just pick up where you left off. It's weird, when you haven't had junk food for awhile and then when you do...it does make you feel icky!

i ALWAYS feel better after doing some yoga : )

(i also find that "avoiding the scale" is the way to go. it preserves sanity)
