I’m very proud of all members who have chosen to change from an unhealthy diet to a healthy eating lifestyle. I’m just starting all over again…..today, Nov 19, 2016. I was eating clean, not eating meat, exercising, drinking water, etc. etc. And then one day about three months ago, I decided to just eat a little junk food, eat a little meat, and drink a little soda and sweet tea
(both of which I haven’t had in over three years). Well three months later, I feel sluggish, tired, and worn out. My body aches, I feel like I don’t get enough sleep, though I go to bed at 8:30, I feel like I’m in a fog, my concentration is off, and I don’t feel sharp and clear of mind. I noticed my skin is always breaking out now, my eyes seem dull and lifeless. Constipation is an issue and there is no energy. When I ate clean and worked out daily, my energy level was over the top. There were absolutely no issues with digestion or this constant bloating. I know I’ve gained weight because all my clothes are tight and I find myself wearing cardigans on a daily basis to hide my extended stomach and large arms. I know how GREAT I felt when I ate clean, exercised and meditated. I uploaded my unflattering photos to remind myself of how out of control I have become. Today, I am taking back the healthy Joan and kicking out the undisciplined unhealthy Joan. I don’t like what I see in the mirror or on the scale, of which I have avoided for an entire month. Time to get back on track. I know I can do this….my health is very important to me.
