Okay, so yesterday, I ate terribly. I was really craving some of my old favorites: pizza, Cesar salad, greasy cheesy sweetness. Here is a cheesecake I ordered. It was only one of the items amongst the set of horrible items that I ate, and you know what. I scream, internally: IT WASN’T WORTH IT IT WASN’T WORTH IT.
Things that tasted great before don’t taste as great now. It’s not because they’re not good, or because eating whole foods have changed my taste (unless they have??), but I realized they’re not the right indulgences. They didn’t taste good enough to suffer the consequences. I read that it takes most food irritants up to THREE WEEKS to clear completely out of your system. I’m not even sure I’ve been eating allergen free for that long. I’m disappointed in myself, and didn’t even have a good time. Also, I wasted SO MUCH MONEY. I’ve realized it’s not worth it to indulge like this unless it’s for a very special occasion — or there’s something seriously amazing I need to try. This wasn’t it. I need to be way pickier!
I’m working hard on letting go of missteps. This can be the start of that!
