So, I kinda failed in my 'weekly updates', but I blame lack of a stable internet connection and exams! Nevertheless my food for the last two weeks was pretty much similar to week one.. I took a pic of some of the stuff I ate...
"It takes 40 muscles to frown, but only 12 to shove some chicken and rice in your mouth and get over it"
primal lemon curd - egg yolks, butter, lemon juice/zest and a touch of honey
mackerel and cortido
Technically this was supposed to be a 4 week experiment, but I sort of splurged on icecream and chocolate after my exam. However, after a few bites of over sweet stuff, and realizing it really wasn't worth it, I'm back to primal eating.
So how did it all go? Well pretty good. I'm glad I decided to be more strict diet-wise, and I know the benefits to me, so there won't be many lapses in the future! Also, 'the pain' as I have now started to refer to it did not come back when I was eating well, and taking care of myself. This was just a reminder to myself that I shouldn't take health for granted, and that my chosen 'lifestyle choices' as my friend's refer to it are important to my well being. I encourage everyone to do their own 'experiment' - just take a few weeks, to be very strict health wise - so eat well, exercise, sleep well, reduce stress via meditation or other means, and just see how it feels. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
