With the back to back days of business lunches and dinners, nights out with friends, weddings, showers, birthday parties, and vacations, I've found that for me being pickier than I want to be has paid off. That's not to say I don't indulge, believe me, I do...I just am more aware of what's going to set me off. For example, I've found that I really can't handle a big bowl of oats in the morning after having a carby dinner the night before. So I try to balance it out with a smoothie or yogurt and fruit. However, if I ate a salad or veggie based meal at night time, my stomach can handle oats in the morning or even a sandwich for lunch. Just not a big one.
So that's it, and I have to say I am so happy. Being 100% restrictive is just not for me, and I'm happy to be able to enjoy a Sierra Nevada again! I am loving eating more conscientiously on all levels and have learned a lot from my numerous experiments with my own digestive system :-) Back to regular posting tomorrow, and I promise that TMI will no longer be an issue!
