Yesterday at noon was a breakthrough moment for me. I had been feeling a bit agitated, tired and hungry for a couple days. I couldn't figure out what was tripping me up and keeping me so agitated. I went on my morning run, it was cold (27 degrees) with a 20mph head wind both ways! My face was so cold I wanted to stop at mile 2 and I felt like crying. Why? Why am I feeling like this. What is going on that I am working through a level of something that is just keeping me irritated. Where is the smooth? Where is the ease? Transitions are never seamless with me, I always have an adjustment period where everything has to learn to adjust and work in sync.
I pushed myself into mile 3. Picked up the pace in mile 4 and headed towards home so that my hubby could finish packing his bag to leave on a business trip. We had hoped for 5 miles, but didn't have the time for it. I entered the house feeling like I could cry. Why? What is going on? Pull yourself together. I ran a hot epsom salt bath, made myself a cup of hot tea. Grabbed a protein shake and a pear. Tub time. Just sink down, relax, give yourself over to whatever feelings come along. Cry if you need to. I don't know why you need to, but cry. Drink your tea and cry.
Then magically like a switch had been flipped, I felt amazing. As bad as I had felt earlier I was certain that nap and useless day were ahead of me. But just the opposite was true. I felt so optimistic, so energetic and suddenly ready to take on the world. I am just guessing at this point that this past week has been a different level of detox for me and that in that flush some hormones.
So, let's see some sexy food!
12 Grain Hot Breakfast Cereal, almond milk, pecans, cinnamon, banana, strawberry
Chocolate Protein Shake and a Pear
Tilapia, Sauteed Spinach and Tomatoes for Lunch
Snack was one of my favorites which I have pictured before:
Apple, pear, blueberries and chopped walnuts
Dinner was supposed to be Elk Roast in a root vegetable sauce.
I purchased the leaned sirloin roast I could, it was grass fed organic.
and I followed the recipe to a T. T = Terrific! Oh, my this was delicious!!!
Oh, and after my little breakdown, breakthrough, I suddenly have not been as hungry between meals and feel more satisfied at meals. The food is sexy delicious. I'm feeling amazing. Sleeping well and feeling more and more positive with each moment.
Have a fabulous day! Live with passion and eat something delicious! Tell me something new that you have tried lately or what your process has taught you about yourself.
