Day 268 – Resolutions

I felt so awful on Easter Sunday after 10 or so days of binge eating.

My body felt lethargic, puffy, my joints felt achy, my face was bloated from consuming dairy.

Whilst we had a lovely day as a family, easter egg hunting, cooking a roast, the kids picnicking and playing outside, I was so mad at myself. I knew if I eat to excess I feel rubbish, yet I’d eaten like a rabied raccoon on the lead up to Easter.

I decided that evening when stuffing a lindt bunny into my mouth whilst watching Schitts creek, enough is enough. Then from yesterday (Easter monday) I’m back on no dairy no sugar.

I made a sourdough, ate well and did yoga.

This morning I already feel so much better. A day off dairy and I’ve dropped 4lbs of water weight. I’ve decided not to weigh myself until my year of being sober. I’m going to aim for 3 meals and 2 snacks a day and continue to replenish my body.

I’m currently sat on a sofa with the sunshine streamig through a window with a hot peppermint tea. The kids are at the park with their dad. I’m managing to not get too annoyed at my SD although it feels like she’s going out of her way to push my buttons.

98 days until a year. I’ve got this.

How is everyone?

  1. Hey you! I love peppermint tea! It’s stomach soothing to me. Glad your getting some relaxing time! I’m lactose intolerant so the minute I eat/drink milk, I know. I am able to eat like pizza with lactose pills though. 🙌🏻 I’ve never done the no sugar but I def am trying to reduce my sugar intake. Enjoy that sunshine and tea! ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Thanks Jackie. The step daughter is now munching an Easter egg next to me whilst it tries to snow. So a lot less relaxing now 😂. I’m the same, as soon as I have dairy I feel awful. Never heard of those tablets will check them out ❤❤

  2. Lovely bread!! I really want to learn how to bake bread someday. That’s a great idea about not weighing yourself until the year mark. Yeah, we can’t keep beating ourselves up about food. Just try to be balanced and mostly nutritious is what I’m going for, too. 🤗

  3. PS, I have a book recommendation for anyone on WordPress. The top 5 regrets of the dying, Bronnie Ware. There are so many lessons in there that can relate to being on a sober journey and quest for a fulfilling life. X

  4. Sounds like you are on the right track! It’s hard not over indulge when there is so much chocolate around the house. I usually get the urge for sugar late afternoon/early evening ( which was usually when I started thinking about wine!) – so am trying to overcome that urge. You are doing great xx
