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!
