Lesson learned, treat your body better. A Jew at the temple could not just offer any sacrifice, it had to be an an acceptable sacrifice with a pleasing aroma. Also it was not a sacrifice sprayed with MSG, chemicals, and boiled in sugar. And with this temple I do not want to just allow anything to enter it anymore. Drew and I are definitely seeing the need for more veggies and simpler/healthier eating in our daily meals, I hope this metamorphosis lasts. Another of my goals is to have a good foundation for a healthy pregnancy. I do not know when that might be, but I want to be healthy now in: what I eat, the minerals and vitamins that I take, and the exercise I plan on doing more of. All to build up my body, instead of fight for mediocre.
We did have a martini and some wine for Laurel's birthday Friday (menu to come), and wine with dinner last night, but we are proud of ourselves for making it so far and not cheating in any other areas (except for the occasional bite of chocolate the past few days ;)
I feel better!! Better than I did 3 weeks ago and better than I did 3 months ago. I don't feel heavy, tired, bloated, and since I feel better my mood has been better. I feel like my body is running smoothly and loving it! I get a lot of fiber, more protein than I usually eat, and way more vegetables that contain vitamins and minerals and more fiber (so u know what that helps ya do) to name a few benefits. I had a rough start, but I knew it would be worth, so I'm glad we stuck to it.
