Well, my first cheat in 30 days went allot different than I thought it would..
For starters, I found myself NOT WANTING the food I ate. All day.
I had to convince myself to eat it, that I would have regrets if I didn't...
Honestly after doing this cheat day, I have decided I won't be doing it again until I go on vacation in June!
All day I have felt disgusting and sick!
Here is what I ate:
Breakfast: two pancakes
Lunch: I only ate two of the giant onion rings & about 1/3 of the hamburger & most of the shake. The Hamburger and onion rings were so unapetizing to me I was shocked!
Deep dish Pizza from my favorite pizza place!
Here is the best part...
I tracked EVERYTHING I ate on My-fitness pal app, and If I ate like I did today EVERYDAY, I would gain 30 pounds in 5 weeks...
THAT MEANS THAT IN ABOUT A MONTH I COULD GAIN BACK THE WEIGHT IT TOOK ME TEN MONTHS TO LOSE!
I thought allot after seeing that about how so many people who know little about nutrition may eat the way I did today on a normal day, and how easy it could be to gain back weight if you lose sight of your goals.
I wanted today to be a day where I got to feast on forbidden foods.
Instead all I could do all day was think about the harm the food I was eating would do to my body!
I have learned a valuable lesson today, and that lesson is that
I have changed.
I don't crave sugary and fried foods anymore
I didn't get a "good feeling" from these foods.
I've grown to prefer gluten free & fresh options
In fact, I might as well start telling people I'm gluten free!!!!
I can't predict the future, but I can tell you that I WILL NOT be participating in a planned cheat day like this again.
Now if you will excuse me, I have a terrible stomach ache and headache to tend to - (yes, you guessed it - caused by the food I ate today)
