So I've been dieting for almost 3 weeks now. Only had 2 cheat days...and they both SUCKED. My first one was yesterday... Went to this awesome little restaurant that's been a favorite of mine for a while. And instead of having this FABULOUS sandwich that I usually get, I figured what the hell....I'll try something new thats a LITTLE bad for me but will still give me some of those nutrients that I'm trying to include more of into my diet: PROTEIN. So even tho I've NEVER liked breakfast food, I ordered a chicken skillet: "American fries" which are basically just hashbrowns only the potato is sliced into thin circles, grilled chicken, grilled onions, and cheddar cheese. And to top it off, FOUR eggs...sunny side up. I don't even like eggs sunny side up, so I dunno why I order them like that? But I don't like eggs irregardless, except for devilled eggs, and its just fun saying sunny side up...makes me sound like I really know what I'm talking about! Ha! But woooooow did I end up regretting eating them. I had 2 of the eggs, and count it: FOUR bites of the other stuff. YIKES. I started feeling sick instantly and spent the rest of the day in bed or in the bathroom.
And today was my "makeup" cheat day, because I barely ate anything else all day yesterday except for a very yummy bowl of oatmeal. So my bf took us to a really nice fancy restaurant for brunch. And I mean, their food is good and all, I'm not complaining...but I really just don't feel happy that I had a cheat day. And I gotta be honest, the food that's not "clean n healthy" (like just pure chicken, fruit, veggies, that sorta stuff), its just not sitting well in my stomach anymore. Like, I don't feel GLAD that I ate it. It doesn't make me feel good in ANY way. So why did we stuff ourselves with CRAP foods in the first place??? Just makes me shake my head.
I can honestly say I'm seriously considering saying F the cheat days and just sticking to my clean, healthy foods. Has anyone else had these thoughts/feelings?
If it tastes good, spit it out.
