Day 48: My body is trying to tell me something

So yesterday, my eating wasn't so hot again. The birthday celebrations continued. Of course, I could have been a little more selective about what I ate. But I chose not to.

One thing I've noticed over the last 2-3 days since my sugar intake has soared and exercise has been lacking. My body is really starting to hate me. I've had a dull headache that hasn't gone away. I have a crazy zit that is making an appearance on my nose. I feel really blah, and moody. My sleep hasn't been very good. If you ask my husband, he'll tell you that I'm a real peach to be around right now.

Despite the choices we make with our minds, they aren't independent from our bodies. My body is really trying to reject all of this sugar, and it's telling me something. For once, I'm not going to ignore it.

I've started off today on a good foot. This morning, I had an hour-long massage appointment. I kept focusing on healthy thoughts. I'm about to make a huge salad for lunch. Meal preparations for the week are underway. And I'm going out for a run this evening, even if it kills me.

Sugar detox is the pits. But at least I have a mouthy body that tells me when to quit treating it like garbage!

I was going to write, "here's hoping for a better day", but it already is. My jeans were hanging off me this morning, and I'm going to keep remembering that feeling.

I love the postive attitude. We all have are little bumps in the road, glad to see you are not letting it get the best of you. All the best for a great week.
