Honoring my Body
It's been a rough week for me physically. I am allowing myself to finally admit how sensitive my body is - I never want to come across as weak, and I guess that is weak in my eyes. My energy is depleted and I know I haven't been eating the best lately... I need to be more responsible for what I put in my body.
I have been gluten free for well over a year now, but I have been slacking more and more since I have found out I do not have Celiac disease. I am in the intolerance zone, but I am beginning to realize it is high intolerance, and I just need to stop eating it all together for good.
Dairy is not agreeing with me either and it never used to be a problem. But my sugary creamer in my coffee everyday is starting to take a toll on my stomach, energy, and mood. I think it has shot my adrenals down. When I get home from work, I have been curling up into a ball of pain and can't get anything else done.
And most of all sugar. I am addicted to sugar. I know how bad it is for you but I eat it anyway and don't bother to drink water because it's boring and flavorless.
There need's to be big changes, I am tired of feeling like this. I need to honor my body. Exercise compassion for myself and make positive changes. I mostly wrote this to motivate myself.
Today on Lughnasadh, the harvest festival, I need to be grateful for my body for withstanding all the junk I have put in it all these years. Starting with lunch.
