As I sit here with a semi blocked nose knowing full well its food related
I cant ignore it.
Inflammation back to rule my world within half hour at a guess
I knew better.
What exactly was I expecting?
Nothing different 😦
I didn’t order pizza myself, yet couldn’t resist that amazing pepperoni slice.
I can still taste it now
Ironically I can taste it but cant smell a thing.
Ughgh my skin is itchy and eyes are blurring up.
And will I do it again ?
Yet what I am noticing is the reduction in frequency of my transgressions big time.
Because I remove most of the problems.
So I will play here uncomfortable for a bit.
Take a zyrtec and supplement with herbals knowing full well that the combination is da bomb.
What I also recognise is that I notice the symptoms so much more.
And it would be really easy to assume they are getting worse
Yet they truly aren’t
They are more noticeable because they are sooo not my normal anymore
I think its easy to fall into the trap of thinking I tolerate them more now,
Yet in reality, my system is no longer so overloaded as it struggled from crash to crunch to crash on a daily basis.
I am healthier and my body is more able to bounce back.
Not that it should have to, yet the reality is, it still has to.
Because pepperoni called and I answered.
My daughter asked me why I didnt want the donuts or icecream.
In my head I answered.
I have eaten 10 years too many sweets already so I have already eaten enough for today, tomorrow, next week and next decade.
Had it so am not missing it.
Yet sometimes off the wagon I slip if you want to think of it that way.
Off to sleep shortly and it will be interesting to consider my sleep pattern.
Oh the things I am noticing as I work through this amazing mind gut health minefield!
More to share about my journey in the New Year I promise xx
For now its home brewed booch, kraut, hydrate and fresh air before calling it a night before that dreaded midnight 🙂
I will go stand on the balcony and take in the clean crisp night air.
I should know better.
PS : The rebel donuts were never considered. That would have been harakiri for me!
