Though I like sweets and sneak them here and there, I've been very good about how much I eat (thanks loboski for directing me to Primal Blueprint). Today I took the family to a Mother's Day brunch at Crowne Plaza. I filled up on real food. More than my fair share; two full plate. I took my grandson (who had much more control than I) up to the dessert table, and got myself a plate full of some of the most incredibly good tasting chocolate torte, chocolate cheese cake and every other chocolate/fudge thing they had.
My wife asked if I wanted to lay down for a nap when we got back. Though I attempt this now and again, I don't nap well. Might get 10 or 15 minutes in and then start getting cagy and have to get up. It's Mother's Day so whatever she wants. I just slept for over 3 HOURS straight and I'm still exhausted. I feel like I took allergy medicine and all energy has been drained from my body. I never experienced this before in such an extreme way. Probably because I was a bit of a sugar junky; in my coffee, cookies and candy I was always eating.
I didn't keep strange hours or change my routine much yesterday. Woke up around the regular time this morning without an alarm.
Shocked at what it did to my body. Granted eating two full plates of food didn't help much, but never has good food done this to me.
Sharing only because I'm so amazed/impressed by what it did.
