I also had a birthday last week which started off the week with trouble. So with birthday cake, rehearsal dinners, wedding bbq, wedding cupcakes, and dessert gift openings its no wonder I feel as bloated as someone attacked by a swarm of bees. I will say this though, when you fall off the wagon, or leap off it, sometimes the carb binge hangover is just the thing to get you back on track again.
It's as if I got all the cravings and the need for sweets out of my system and reminded my body why working out and eating healthy feels right. I feel sluggish and bloated when I eat carbs, and the sugar just causes me to want more sugar. I am constantly looking for something to put in my body that is bad for me and I fill the time with snacks. Its not a good way to live. And to be honest, most of the carbs I had didn't even taste good.
All that to say, I am getting back on the wagon today and I look forward to doing it. Getting back on track with my walks will be nice. I wish I didn't need to have the 1-2 weeks of catching back up to where I was by cleaning out the carbs. But its the price I pay.
I am going to try to put up some new posts over the next couple days showing the process of getting on track again. But I decided not to weigh in for a week. I don't want to get depressed right after my trip home. Better to get back on track without knowing how bad the damage done has been.
-By the way, to get a better idea of the type of wedding my brother had, this robot was directing traffic at the event.
