I made two mistakes yesterday. Let’s start with the obvious one, I committed Skin Care sin number one and went to bed with all my makeup on 😂 (You thought it was going to be about the hair didn’t you, that’s some priceless bed head) I’m sure my skin will forgive me this once, check out that mascara though, I’m a stomach sleeper and there’s no smeared, smudged black all over my eyes and cheeks! Yes!
Anyway, the real lesson learned from yesterday. I got hit with a really severe headache while out shopping Friday afternoon, I still needed to function for some things we had planned so I made it home and took ibuprofen, applied some peppermint oil and had some coffee. Those three together usually help bring me out of a bad headache (they didn’t really touch it). But because I was frazzled and also super hungry I also started snacking. On, you guessed it… carbs. Then we ordered pizza for dinner 🍕 hey I’m giving myself credit here for going for the thin crust. And then I had birthday cake that night.
On any given day, none of these things alone would have been too horribly detrimental, but all of it together after being very strict with my carbs this week meant I woke up feeling like an absolute mess. I literally felt hung over. Bloated and miserable stomach, groggy and in a REALLY bad mood.
How many more time will I need to “mess up” before I learn permanently that my body just needs to be away from carbs. Like, totally away from them! I guess all life lessons take time for us to learn!
Back on it today tracking my digestible carbs to be sure I’m staying under my target 🎯 and because I believe there’s a positive in every situation I am ending with that. I am proud of myself that I am right back on it the next day rather than crashing and being depressed about my mistake and eating poorly for several days. That’s a huge win!
