Wow, I can’t believe how wonderful I’m feeling today! I’m not sure if it’s my mind or my food – perhaps it’s a combination of both. Definitely my endorphins are on overdrive and I’m ready to take on the day.
Well managed to stay ‘on the wagon’ last night with friends for dinner. It wasn’t too bad, I ended up making a huge batch of hommous which was great, because while everyone was nibbling on crackers & dip, I was able to hoe into carrot sticks, celery sticks and hommous. Not too bad at all. I also ended up squeezing a few limes and drinking fresh lime and lemon in sparkling water. I drunk it out of a wine glass too, so I didn’t feel too out of place with everyone else socialising, drinking and eating. All in all, pretty great effort! Got a bit gnarly when it was dessert time! I tend to have a ‘sweet tooth’ so I find dessert VERY hard to avoid. I ended up making myself a batch of ‘good chocolate’ – you know the one with almond meal, coconut oil, raw cacao and maple syrup (equal amounts of each), and I munched on a few of those. Probably not perfect, but hey, life is sometimes not perfect! LOL
Keen to get some exercise in today, but looks pretty dreary out there. Thinking I might try and get a round of golf in – nice walk, probably about 5000 steps or so. I figured I’d be better off at the gym, but today seems like one of those days when I just can’t be bothered – and that’s ok.
Spoke to Fiona today and she said she’s ‘strayed’ a bit over the long weekend. They have friends staying with them, and she’s found it too hard to be entertaining without partaking in the occasional indulgence of food and wine (OMG I can so relate to that!). She’s back on the wagon on Tuesday, and has decided to go for a week over the 30 days to make up for it. Good idea I say!
Personally, I’m leading into a new way of eating for after my 30 days is up. I have discovered a heap of strategies that work for me and my mind is clear and sharp about what I do that works, and what I do that doesn’t work.
So good to be on the path of clean eating.
You don’t realise how bad you have felt, until you start to feel good! And how great is it when the good feeling becomes the norm!
