My challenge - To eat fruit and live my truth :)
This is from 19 July at about 3pm...
I'm finally starting to see the full impact my eating and drinking habits have on my mood. I know at the start of the week I was so super cranky because I piled a banana smoothie on top of deep fried chips (yep... moment of WTF/who cares/I'm hungry) from the night before and it was digestive hell. Last night after a day of bananas I had four cups of chickpeas. Ok, better than the chips, but I was scared to have a smoothie this morning, just ate a few bananas and then picked at other foods until I decided to have potatoes to get the carbs in without piling fruit ontop of the chickpeas. Now I'm so full and dehydrated, but don't want to drink water coz I'll bloat even more.
So all this equals flat Janna. I'm so tired I could sleep till morning and it's only 2:30pm. I didn't even have any condiments with the potatoes. Just plain steamed potatoes.
Cooked food is just too dehydrating and I'm already chronically dehydrated. I really need to just stick to juicy fruits. But all I have is bananas so it seems I just have to suck it up, drink a truck load of water and get those bananas in!
Enough of this round about, just drive off into the sunset of bananas.
Lol, it makes me laugh when I think that most people would just have a coffee to get over this feeling.
I know everything is gonna be okay.
Sleep will heal all :)
The next day after a big sleep I was back to normal (mood wise) but I'm still on the cooked food merry-go-round.
I feel like I have this mental block against bananas. I seem to be able to only eat so many a day instead of just unlimited banana island. I would rather eat dehydrating cooked food then bananas. It's so sad :(
At least I've been eating high carb cooked vegan food, not extra add in's except on friday I had the leftover sweet potato and chickpea salad from the cafe. It had a tiny bit of oil, salt, pepper and vinegar. No crazy side effects. Just need to drink more water.
Everything else is going so well. Less than four weeks till the trip to the USA and I'm finally getting stuff done, slowly but surely. This weekend has been great, spent alot of time with Kirt. Kirt has lent me his car for the week so I'm feeling really privileged driving around in that. We went and saw The Dark Knight rises last night and had a ball. It was absolutely brilliant and I loved being able to shout Kirt to the movies. It was such a treat for him, he said he hasn't been to the cinemas in about 10 years.
Physically I've been feeling really good, energetic (when I'm not dehydrated) and really happy with how I look at the moment. Kirt and I have been kicking and playing around with the football a lot. Playing with his brother's step son was also a good workout yesterday.
Generally I'm just feeling more relaxed and peaceful. The only thing that's bugging me is my disinterest in bananas, but I figure I'll just do my best staying high carb vegan and soon enough I'll be at the WFF with a fruit buffet to boot!
Ok, better get back to work, still lots left of the to do list!
