Nancy H. Posted November 14, 2012 Share Posted November 14, 2012 Well I have been living on my high horse for almost two months. Doing OK. I thought. But I have fallen off that horse and landed face down in the mud along with the sugar dragon, the bread dragon, the ice cream dragon, the candy dragon. You name the dragon and we became very good friends. Looking them right in the eye. And I did not like what I saw. I have completely wasted my Whole 30 experience. I have spent the last two weeks eating all the psychologically-unhealthily, hormone unbalancing, gut disrupting and inflammatory foods I could get my hands on. And what did I learn from that you ask? I feel terrible. I hate myself for falling into those old habits; my sleep habits have gone back to being so disruptive that I only sleep for an hour or two at a time; my personal bathroom habits are so irregular now; I think about non-compliant food all the time and I know this must be causing some inflammatory reactions in my body. And all for what??? A few Starbucks latte's and slices of their Lemon Loaf? A few candy bars? A few 4 oz containers of ice cream? A bag of popcorn and a diet coke? But one thing I did learn: I did not FALL of that horse. I knew exactly what I was doing. I CHOSE to eat those foods. No one made me do it. All my actions are my own choice. And right now I CHOOSE to eat healthy. I am going to follow this program the way it is written. I have ordered the Whole 30 Daily Service starting tomorrow. I am excited to be starting this. I know from the first time that the meals are delicious. I have so many compliant recipes that I will never go hungry and look forward to sharing my thoughts with others. I am 79 years old and I have lots of plans for the next few years. And I do NOT want some unknown disruptive thing going on in my body to change that. I have two Grand Children getting married next year. And I plan to be the healthiest, sexiest Grandmother in attendance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
