On Sunday I was having my first Shake & Share which I was very nervous about. I am not usually a public speaker. I used to be so concern about my English but things are getting better! I know I still have an accent but it does not bother me one bit. Just makes me laugh!
I had made some healthy little snack for the Shake & Share, such as little veggie Dips and some Healthy energy bites. Unfortunately I didn't think, obviously, and took a few of the veggie dip as I was socialising. And then realize...Oh nooooooo! I'm having diary! Let's just say I didn't have any more but within an hour I was bloated again and then came.....the pain!
Yes, yes....I am lactose intolerant but always tried to denied it. Well this time was pretty obvious. What surprised me is that the pain lasted...all throughout the night. And then the next day I never felt good again. Even to this day on a Tuesday it is still aching a bit. Now I think I just confirmed that when I eat something like diary (having an intolerance) it triggers something more. I know, I know perhaps it's just my IBS but I would love to look deeper into it. This is why I am doing this after all.
Other then this really bad episode I have been feeling super! Again, full of energy and I enjoy my food. May I add that during this Reset they do recommend you throwing all your bad food at home? Well it is not the case here. I have had to watch my husband eat pizza, hot dogs, chips and several other things. So to everyone out there, is it hard? you betcha! Did I get frustrated? You betcha! What did I do? No, I didn't start eating that bad food, instead I took a few minutes away. Some of you might say, well you can do it but I can't. Or it's different, I am addicted to junk food. Well let me tell you that I used to BEG my husband to stop at McDonald's....I used to BEG him. And the times he didn't, I would sob. I would feel horrible inside. Cause I needed it. Cause I was addicted to it. I'm not just blaming McDonald's here. I'm talking about the chocolate in front of me when I go pay for gas. The chips in the vending machine......All you need is one minute. WALK AWAY!
That's all it takes. Its called having control. Am I good at it? Not sure yet but am I on the road to a better me.
