On Saturday Mike and I had an awesome Halloween party with finger foods, candy and lots and lots of drinks.¬† So instead of trying to fight the feeling .. I decided to go with the flow and eat anything I wanted.¬† This is best known as a "cheat day".¬† Some people find a cheat day is a great motivational tool that gives dieters something to look forward to but I am steadfast in my belief that a cheat day is a HUGE MISTAKE.¬†¬†
While I didn't go completely crazy, I did kick the night of with pigs in a blanket (of course!) and from the second that pig hit my mouth it was all down hill from there.¬† I spent the rest of the night burping up sausage-y acid that burned my throat and tasted terrible.¬†¬†I thought to myself 'THIS IS POISON!¬† THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN INGESTING HAND OVER FIST FOR THE LAST 29 YEARS?!'.¬† For a moment I actually felt really¬† bad about the abuse I have been putting my body through with the foods that I used to eat.¬†¬†My poor body that has been so good to me.¬† My¬†poor body that keeps working every single day and never lets me down¬†(except for a little gallbladder issue in 2010... but no body is perfect).
Finger foods were once a delightful treat but now they are my sworn enemy.¬† I am back to eating clean and it feels SO much better.¬† No more heart burn, no more upset stomach... AND I am looking better BONUS!
