I went an trained myself at the gym yesterday morning since my trainer was out of town. I was afraid that I would have an issue but all went well. I stop at Whole Foods after and picked up a few items, which included a banana and watermelon to eat on the way home. After an hour or so I had quite a few snack: Lara bar, 4 dates, almonds and walnuts. I was hoping this was an indication I was going to turn things around. I trained my client at 6:00 and came home to make dinner. I had this delicious salad with a new carrot-ginger dressing. At first I had a hard time thinking this was a dressing since it was not the consistence I am use to for a dressing. The flavor was delicious and on the sweet side. I also cooked up some sweet potato fries.
I decided to add a little more starch to see if that would aid in my gastrointestinal issues. I had a Ezekiel muffin with some Raw honey I bought today. Yummy! This hit the spot. I also finished off the night with a small piece of dark chocolate. Although my stomach continued to make a LOT of sounds I felt good and satisfied.
It is now Tuesday morning and it is another beautiful day. I started of the morning with a juice of: Kale, celery, apple, ginger, carrot and lemon. Nice start to the day. I train with my trainer today at 12:30 and have a grocery list started so may attempt to pick up stuff off the list on my way back. I still need to go file for my DBA for the business. I don't train tomorrow so I may just do that tomorrow.
I have been looking at my stomach issues and had to really ask myself one question: Are you doing this to an extreme? I have issues with this and am an all or nothing kind of girl but does this always benefit me? I have decided that I will keep things raw and light threw out the day and then have a nice meal at night that will start with a nice Raw salad. I saw a recipe for some Maple Balsamic vinegar that I am going to make and toss it with some brussel sprouts that I have in the refrigerator and roast as part of my dinner tonight. I want to continue experimenting with different approaches to eating but this does not mean that I have to go at it full force! Hey I am still learning...
