Since I’ve decided to cut out soy and sugar from my diet, I’ve also cut WAY back on the amount of meat I intake. I’ve found over the past couple days after I eat a meal containing meat that I’m completely exhausted afterwards.
I had steak last night and after dinner I was completely lethargic. Tonight at small group we had ham and after dinner while we were watching part of a video series we’re going through, it took everything I had to keep my eyes open! If I stick with fruits and vegetables I feel much better and more alert.
Makes me think I should stick closer to a plant based diet and move away from animal protein. Or maybe cut WAY back on my animal protein when I do eat it.
Then again, beef and pork are not the easiest to digest . . . I’ll keep thinking on this. Maybe I should just stick with chicken?
At the same time tonight I think I imbibed more sugar than I have in the past couple days. The ham had a sugary glaze on it, and since I got home so late, we didn’t have time to make the instant mashed potatoes (how sad is that!!) so we took a bag of chocolate that my Italian had gotten while he was in the hospital that we hadn’t eaten yet. So of course I had a couple pieces.
Funny thing with that. The first one actually tasted like plastic! The more I ate, cause I
pigged out ate several, the more chocolaty they tasted. Huh . . . . I thought that was interesting.
Well, I’m off to bed. I’m still completely exhausted and tomorrow is only Tuesday.
I did get my measurements done last week. Once I get my grubby little hands on that piece of paper, I’ll post them. I promise!
