So I don't know how I managed to do it, but I came home from vacation weighing exactly the same. Well, O.K. two ounces more. With restaurants like O'Charleys, Lamberts, (yes, home of the throwed rolls-I caught one), and 5 Guys Burgers and Fries I was truly concerned.
But that's not really why I wanted to blog-because I never blog-but this was just such a revolution I had to blog. I WANTED TO GET BACK TO SPARKPEOPLE!! Yep, that's right. I was missing my vegetables and my lowfat foods. It was a small miss, granted but every bite I took bothered me. White bread?? Really? I'm clogging my pipes with this stuff AND that's not even real butter. That's a lab experiment that's what that is. When we picked up our fries at the "Guys" place the bag was wet-from grease! Oh sorry, peanut oil.
I chose to eat on vacation the way that I thought I wanted to eat. No rules-just ENJOY. But the truth was I didn't really enjoy it. I didn't enjoy the damage I was doing to my body and to my health, the potential weight that I may be putting back on. Why? BECAUSE I'M WORTH MORE! MY HEALTH IS WORTH MORE.
The body is sooo complex but the truth is when it comes to food and drinks it get down to two simple facts: fuel or toxins. God designed our bodies to eat certain things and when "it" enters the body our body takes a look at it and places it into either the IN category which is fuel or the OUT category which is toxins. One of them helps us to work, live and enjoy life and the other forces our bodies to work itself, dare I say it, to death.
I'm happy to be home. I'm happy I had a wonderful vacation and a wonderful revolution. Eat, drink and be merry does not mean destroy yourself in fact, it is just the opposite. Live well!
