Thanks for Understanding
I would like to apologize for the lack of postings here the past 2 weeks on C&C. Truth be told, I’m utterly exhausted. And since this is MY blog, I’m going to vent for a minute. I have ridiculous amounts of school work (2 projects due next Thursday.) I’m working full time. I’m stress eating so even my fat pants don’t fit. Because I’m so stressed out, I’m having difficulty digesting anything these days, so I’m super bloated, uncomfortable, and truth be told, you don’t want to be around me. Oh, and I woke up to heartburn for the first time in my life this morning.
So, friends, it can happen. As much as you are educated about nutrition, and fundamentally understand how to take care of yourself, sometimes life intervenes and you just can’t. I know I should be eating less, and not heading to the fridge when I don’t want to do my work. I know I should eat slower, savor my food instead of scarfing it down, but that’s just not reality for me right now. I should be meditating, journaling, taking baths, sleeping more, and giving myself downtime. But again, just not happening.
I have, however, stayed off sweets and maintained my exercise routine, which is really the only thing that’s kept me sane. Oh, and lots of wine. That can help. But after waking up with heartburn this morning, I said to myself, This has GOT to end. I may be totally stressed out, super busy, and freaking out ever so slightly, but that’s no excuse continue to abuse myself. I said to someone I feel like a stranger inhabiting my body, and truthfully, it really doesn’t feel good when even your fat pants don’t fit.
So, now, what’s a girl to do? Get back to the basics. Food journal. Lots of water, vegetables. Stop eating past 8pm. In fact, since most of my eating happens at night, this is the most important guideline to follow. I’m going to go back to my modified detox diet: lots of liquids, simple foods, which I feel will ease my digestional discomfort.
I hope you can forgive me for being so MIA, and please know that I’m still here, and would never abandon my C&C! Posts may be spotty next week as all my energy will be put into these projects, but after next Thursday, I’ll be much better, I promise.
And because I don’t have the brain cells to write a witty, coherent post, read this from one of my favorite blogs, Fooducate, about smaller Coca-Cola cans. What are your thoughts?
