So I woke up this morning to find my chin sprayed with pimples. Literally, it looks like someone with a pimple gun conducted a drive-by shooting on my face. Yuck. Part of it, of course, is hormonal. But as my husband pointed out this morning, a good part of it is because I had a very crappy eating day, yesterday.
I've been doing REALLY well the last several days. But when I visit my parents' house and in-laws'- I find it extremely hard to control myself. And that's where I spent the day yesterday. It's amazing how bad food can make you feel. Temporary elation. But when your body gets through processing it, you feel like utter crap. Last night, I was lying on the couch moaning and groaning, clutching my stomach, because I felt too FULL. And not full of vegetables or water...but full of crap. Of course, all of the parents feel compelled to keep feeding me because I should be eating for "two". Argh!
Luckily, it was only one day in a string of relatively good one's. And it's a new day today. So, I'm putting it all behind me, and moving ahead. Because I don't have a choice, do I?:-)
Very healthy food packed for the day. I'm already guzzling water. And I'm going to the gym at lunch - in a couple of hours. It feels good to be back in control! And for dinner tonight, I'm making vegetarian lasagna. It's made from whole-wheat noodles, tons of vegetables (spinach, onion, mushrooms, zucchini), and delicious sauce. I may do some steamed asaparagus on the side.
And hopefully I won't look like an acne-ridden teenager for too long! I desperately want that "glow" thing that's supposed to be happening. The good part is, I'm convinced that most of the glow comes from within.
