It’s been one of those weeks. I don’t know exactly why, but it has. And when it has been one of those weeks, I find myself having moments of necessary self-forgiveness.
I know that second cup at 6:30 at night was not a good idea. Too much acid for my stomach. Too much caffeine. But, I did it anyways.
I know peanut butter is a trigger food for my GI issues, but….my blood sugar was low, and it’s a quick protein fix. So, I ate it anyways.
I appreciated the gluten free lunch provided to me during the marketing lunch at work even though I don’t normally eat bread. (By the way, Schlotzsky’s Deli makes/uses a really good gluten free bun). The baked chips were fine, too. But, I ate more baked chips, this time BBQ. And, the energy slump came. I knew it would, but I ate them anyways.
You get the drift. Sometimes, I want to stomp my feet like a little kid and say “It’s not fair.” But, I don’t. (Thank goodness for some self-control!)
Food intolerance issues are what they are. I need to incorporate more anti-inflammatory food in my diet: dark greens, blueberries, walnuts, salmon, turmeric (love, love, love this spice), and ginger. And…I need to not miss my dose of Hdryozyme with every meal. My stomach was burning today!
So, I need to forgive myself and move on. I know there is will power hidden among the temptations of life. Celebrate small successes….saying no to the candy dish at work!
Life is a journey…one step at a time…and sometimes that includes an ounce or more of self forgiveness along the way and then moving on!
