Good Evening Folks!
How is everyone?
I am doing GREAT! Sorry for not posting for a few days. I am all right. Nothing happened to me. I did take a break from my blog for a few days...and also from my diet.
Like in a big way from my diet...like I ate that bag of Easter candy that I had stashed away. I had some peeps.
I had some ribs with a side of steak fries that was smothered in cheese. There was a cookie involved. A Culvers turtle sundae. Now I'm not in the mood for a blizzard.
I got so stuffed that my stomach actually hurt.
And then, the strangest thing happened. Remember when I said I was not having any morning sickness with this pregnancy? After a day and a half of changing my diet to processed foods, sugar and white flour...I started getting nausea. This morning I had nausea all morning long. So I went and checked on line to see if I could find any correlation between morning sickness and what was going on with my diet...and they all blame nausea on just being pregnant. But I didn't get nausea/morning sickness until I reintroduced toxic food into my diet.
Normally with my other pregnancies, I would have nausea into the 14th and 15th week of pregnancy. This is only the 12th week, so I would still be having nausea in my other pregnancies.
Can you say....I am shocked?
So, let me get this right...my taking out sugar, white flour and processed foods was what kept me from getting nauseous in this pregnancy?
I mean I felt "slightly" nauseous for a whole three days of this pregnancy.
Well, I can't stand how I feel folks. So, I going back on my diet tomorrow. There will be a few changes that I will be implementing, however. As you can see from the top picture. I am eating my breakfast with an eight ounce glass of milk instead of the egg whites. I will be switching in about four glasses of milk a day. I'm going back to taking out all sugar, white flour and processed foods again starting tomorrow...except that I will add milk. I also may allow myself some treat foods on the weekends, but I want to stay true to eating as clean as possible.
If my nausea doesn't go away in a few days... after reverting back to my old diet...then I will know that it could possibly be the milk that is also causing nausea. This could be a possibility. I know a friend who is lactose intolerant to milk, but not so when he drinks unpasteurized milk. So, there is also perhaps something in milk that may react with some people's bodies.
The second picture is some left-over ribs with rice and a roll.
Well, I hope I haven't disappointed too many of you with my little lapse in diet this weekend. ..ok... big lapse. But, I did learn something by it though...
Sugar, processed foods and white flour really is toxic to our bodies.
Hope you're all doing well!
Thanks for stopping by!
