What a day today was. I had an early start to my day, unusual for me, so I headed in to visit Irma and then I went to a spin class at the gym . It was a great ride but I started to feel a bit light headed and nauseous toward the end of the 30 minutes. By the time I was finished I ran to my car, in my gym shoes and jacket in hand (it’s 30 degrees below, by the way) and got sick in a plastic bag….grooooooooosssssss. Thank goodness there was snow all over my car and no one could see in. After a bit of rest I felt better and continued on my day, but still a little weak and empty inside.
A few years ago, I would have needed to “make myself feel better” with comfort food. Probably would have hit a drive-thru, or had a donut…..mmmm, donut 🍩….you know; food that makes us all warm and cozy on the inside. But not today, that’s not me anymore. My reward is clean healthy food to nourish my body back to good health. So I bought a rotisserie chicken and an 🍎 and ate some of the chicken in the car (yup, ripped it right from the chicken; medieval style), then the juicy apple and washed it all down with fresh cold water. I felt better just knowing I put healthy nutrient rich food in me, instead of simple wasteful fats and sugars.
I had a warm bath and a good rest when I got home. My tummy is still a bit off so I’m taking it easy tonight. Snuggled in a blanket with hot tea and a movie. Tomorrow is a new day and I’m ready for it.
ps – I still got my shakes and nutrients in today….and most of them stayed in 😆! But damn….are you still thinking about a donut? Cause I am.
