I now return you to my regularly scheduled programming.

Being home for a day has done wonders for my attitude and outlook on life.

During the past few weeks I was eating a lot of bad food in excess. Just for the record, I believe there are "bad" foods, things that probably shouldn't even be eaten in moderation. Unfortunately for me, I don't seem to have an ounce of moderation or control when it comes to these bad foods.

I was eating a lot of processed foods high in sugar, white flour and fat, and very little exercise. I've been in a fog for weeks. My brain hasn't been clear, and I felt like I wasn't really living in the here and now.

Perhaps it was the stress or laziness on my part, but my eating was very unhealthy. I could have and should have made healthier choices.

After just one day of being on plan and 90 minutes of exercise where I really pushed myself, I feel a hundred percent back to the old me. It's a really good feeling. It's true, we are what we eat.
I'm going to bed now. I'm actually looking forward to tomorrow, to going back to work where things are normal. Back to the gym in the morning. Back to my life.

That's good information to remember, Diana. I know for me, it takes about three days for my body to recover and my head to clear if I've been eating inappropriately (for me). When I'm in that fog/haze/duldrum/hangover, I have to remind myself that this feeling is NOT forever and that in three days, I can feel very differently. I'm glad to see that you are approaching normal as well.

Funny, when I go on vacation, I always eat/drink whatever I want. After about 2 days back at home in my "regular" routine I always think I can't believe how much better I feel. We ARE what we eat, we ARE how we exercise. Enjoy getting back to your life.

Glad you are feeling better!

Glad you're back and getting over that sugar/processed hangover.
I'm happy to hear you're back on track and on plan!
