I failed

19 Aug

 “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

Yeah well I was on a 30 day no processed foods. I only made it two weeks. BUT I have a good excuse I guess. I woke up this morning with the flu!! Yeah talk about crappy!! I could not even walk down stairs to my fridge without either throwing up or passing out. Sad I know!! There is no way I was going to eat chicken and veggies while I am feeling like this. So I opted for cauliflower soup and some frozen yogurt 🙂 It’s the only thing that sounded good and I actually kept it all down YAY.

At least I stayed on the No processed foods for this long. I will continue doing it..I just had one bad/sick day. We all fail and we all make mistakes..but we live and learn.

It was also a damn monsoon here. CRAZY CRAZY rain!! My neighbor and a few other houses close by got flooded!! Super sad!

On the bright side the soup and fro yo were amazing and what a perfect meal to eat in this weather!

I am actually just getting ready to go to the doc. I am scared because today he is puting in my non hormonal IUD. Alot of my issues that I was having a few months ago were because of my birth control. He thinks this copper IUD will do the trick and it will also help keep me leaner. Hormones just mess me all up and it’s hard to stay lean lean. So the reason why I am scared is because I haven’t had a baby..so I guess we have a 50/50 chance that he can get it in. And from what I heard it will be painful since I am not streched LOL. Wish me luck!

    Yikes, girl! Good luck to you!!

    I think you did awesome on the no processed foods diet! I’m having a hard time at day 5 of the one you prescribed me!

    I love creative cooking and I am so bored trying to eat plain jane. I’ve been reading some of April’s recipes and am thinking of what I can do to stick to the diet and still stay creative. I have a lot to learn about this type of eating/cooking 🙂 You and April are truly inspirational!

    Hope you feel better soon! And no worries – the IUD will go in … but it’ll prolly be quite painful. Worth it, though, so be brave! Hope it goes well!

    HEY KAT! Great job on 2 weeks, the cool thing is that you KNOW you can do it now!
    I’ve not tried beets before, crazy huh? What’s your fav way to prepare them??
    I hope the doc goes well…eye yiyi tell me about hormones & trying to stay lean…not fun at all! How’s your thyroid doing of late?

    Hope you have a WONDERFUL rest of the week!!!!!

    There’s no time limit on going process-free… limits inspire bad feelings. I think you did great! Being mindful is the biggest thing, right? Feel better soon!

    2 weeks is great. Honestly, some days I can barely make it 2 hours without processed foods 😦

    Good luck at the doctor, just try to relax.

    Good luck! Hope you’re feeling 100% soon!

    You’re a goose! When you’re sick, you have to take care of yourself in the best way possible–both your body AND mind. And the froyo has active cultures to settle an upset tummy!

    Anyway, feel better!

    I was wondering about the problems you had with your birth control? I gain some weight with in a week after switching kinds and couldn’t get it off…Did a lot of things you did to change diet and exercise around but nothing worked. Your Dr. seem like someone that is very helpful! My wasn’t concern because I am not really that heavy (just a coupld pounds)But I like to be healthy and fit in general so it really upsets me. I guess did you find something that is helping you?
