This morning I woke up feeling really…blah. I was not feeling well at all.
I mentioned in my post yesterday that I ate burger after burger all weekend, but I didn’t really get into the amount of birthday cake I consumed (a huge slice on Friday, and a huge slice on Sunday), or the piece of lemon meringue pie I had for dessert on Saturday, or the strawberry cheesecake tart I scored from the dance recital’s bake sale…
Or the Dairy Queen Blizzard I ate last night… Ahh…
In addition to burger overload, a ton of unhealthy dessert was thrown in. Fruits and veggies were few and far between, sadly. Besides my healthified Egg McMuffin on Saturday morning and my chocolate peanut butter smoothie yesterday, anything healthy seemed to evade my plate (not that burgers are particularly unhealthy, but you know what I mean).
I don’t know if this is why I felt so terrible this morning (I’m feeling quite a bit better now), or if I am just getting sick (I hope not!), but either way, I am getting back on the healthy-eating train.
I always feel so blarg after eating badly, and I genuinely enjoy healthy foods – fruits, veggies, whole grains, lean protein…bring it! So I don’t know why I sometimes revert to my old ways of just eating whatever’s clever without thinking about it first. I have felt so great since making it a point to live healthier, and I don’t want to slide into reverse.
I am all for dessert, but in moderation. I need to remind myself of this.
This week I am making it my mission to seek out healthier eats, that actually provide fuel for my body! I started with breakfast this morning.
Vanilla Liberté Greek yogurt topped with pineapple, blueberries, and a couple scoops of Enjoy Life granola.
It was delicious, and my day started on the right foot with protein, fruit, and whole grains.
Lunch was up next. I ended up working from home today because I was feeling craptastico, so I made myself (and A-Rod, who popped home for lunch) Campbell’s low-sodium Harvest Minestone soup.
This soup is no Druxy’s soup, but it was pretty good. And it was actually pretty veggie-packed.
I supplemented this with a whole wheat tortilla and two melted slices of cheese topped with salsa, which I folded over to make a quesadilla.
One of my favourite go-to healthy snacks!
And dessert was an apple.
Not too shabby.
Dinner tonight was an easy, healthy baked pasta, but I will have to post that up later because I am off to BodyPump!
Operation Healthy has so far been a success!
Do you feel regretful after a period of bad-eating?
