A new day...

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.

You DEFINITELY are glowing from within already!!!
And don't worry, the pimples wil be gone in no time! The wonder lasagna will definitely chase them away!

I did my own vgan lasagna a couple of days back, using some sliced zucchini as pasta and a lot of tvp: yummie!
Enjoy your food!

One day of "bad" eating is not a bad thing, Sonya! I am, however, glad you are back on track. Your baby will thank you as well.

Aw, sorry about the pimples. I get them on occasion too. I think it's the heat as well that brings them out... do you? The sweat from the glands added to the food we eat combining for some interesting happenings on the skin.

Think good thoughts, Sonya.

I feel for you on the pimples! I hate that. Kleopatra might be right about the heat adding to it too. One day of bad eats is not to shabby!!

Oh my god I've got a pimple spray on my face lately too! What's up with that? Shouldn't it be that if you're old enough for wrinkles you don't get pimples anymore??
