I live by the rule: always pack lunch to work. I am good at obeying that rule(hubby pack though) however, today.. Oh today! A day not so well planned.
How did my Morning start
My oatmeal was ready, I just had to warm some milk as the porridge got a little cold. My husband’s cheese toast was on the bread board (looking yummy).. I thought “agh just one bite” “mmmm so nice with the coffee” one slice down, never ate my porridge as we ran late.
I didn’t pack fruit! Normally it’s my first snack at work (a naartjie/orange). I looked into my lunch bag and all I could see was my soup for lunch and a small packet of Frito’s, my son’s. Well, when a person is hungry you pretty much end up eating everything. I thought “ too early for junk, it’s almost tea time for a cup of tea and a carrot muffin yum!” I ended up eating some of the chips… Left feeling nauseous.
Tea Time 10:15
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on that muffin. Normally I eat half, today I’ve finished it all.(arrgh I’m still bloated) I ate the icing too! Plus the tea with milk and one sugar!
It is exactly 11:53 now, and I am still bloated! It feels like I won’t be able to eat lunch time.(an orange need to come to my rescue)
Some will maybe think “girl get over yourself” but, this is my body. And I run this factory of mine based on good production. Well nourished, well serviced and works on certain fuels. It’s like throwing petrol into a diesel car. That’s what I did to my body today and now I suffer the consequences.
That’s one of the reasons I made the decision to eliminate junk. It’s also about how you manage it. If I had to start my day right I would’ve been able to eat a peace of the muffin more enjoyable, and not by over indulging.
The moral is: No good comes from over indulging bad foods, it just leaves you feeling uneasy, bloated and Moody.
Choose good food, you miss out on nothing!
I am glad I experienced this today, because once again it is proven what unhealthy eating habits does. NO GOOD
So, I am doing quite fine by striving to Eat Healthily and Exercise everyday. I am fine by being Judged for my way of Living. As long as I know it’s doing good for my Health.
I hope everyone can realize the Importance of Health.
