You are what you eat…

Posted on

This weekend was an action packed weekend. I did things every day if it. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I can not think of the last time such an occurrence happened for me. This is my new life I am living and I am loving every moment of it.

This wasn’t my life before and while I did do a ton this weekend it was rough at times. That, however, was my own fault. Friday night after getting home from my birthday party I was celebrating and was eating some fruit that I was not supposed to be eating. There are foods that just don’t agree with me, and this was one of them. I bought a bunch of bananas Friday night, and then the next day, I was reeling from them. I had thought I was sick but I realized it was the foods I had eaten. Luckily the way I was feeling did not last long and I was able to go out the next day.

I then did not learn my lesson and had some more bad foods Sunday night, and paid for it all night long, by being in the bathroom… What is the moral of this story? You are what you eat. What has helped me with this journey and doing things like this is that I have started eating better. Not just healthy foods but foods that worked for me. Foods that my body can handle. Foods that my body can tolerate and digest better. I believe that our bodies are all unique and different. As such they also have diets and food choices that work best for that body. So we all have different dietary needs and wants. Eating those foods can really make a difference in our wellbeing and our attitude. 

For me it has literally been life changing and it has literally saved my life. When I am not eating those foods. I pay the price, as I did this weekend, and it’s a heavy, uncomfortable price. I am writing this for posterity and a reminder for myself for when I am thinking of eating the wrong foods. There is a price to them and is it worth it to do so? For me, it’s not. Now I know and see it in writing to make those better choices. They have served me well and I do not want to go back to that place again. I will be what the foods I eat are. Healthy, happy, while. I will eat good, kind foods…

      I actually did have a post around my blog talking about my diet, I’m not sure I still have it anymore. For me my diet revolves around my stomach and how it digests foods and foods it had trouble digesting. I focus on eating those foods, and eliminated the rest. Which also tied into eliminating dairy, as dairy can be really hard on the gut, as well as breads and glutens.
