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?
