I'm not beating myself up about this - after an enormous amount of stress, pressure, and busy-ness in the months and weeks leading up to April 17th, four weeks of eating, drinking and chilling was just what the Doctor ordered. But now I'm back into a routine, I want to keep on top of my health and fitness to make sure I feel good inside and out. I've not been feeling 100% since we got back; jetlag, thrusting myself straight back into work and hoovering up all of the chocolate and crisps in the house have made me feel sluggish and fatigued. Bread in various forms (tiger bread and pizza being my main weaknesses) have been on the menu almost every day, but I've started to face up to the fact that it just does no wonders for my digestive health. After eating a couple of tiger bread baps at a barbecue last weekend my stomach was so swollen I had to lie down. It is mainly bread that does this and I'm not sure of the cause (whether it's wheat, gluten, or something else) - but I know that if I want to feel good and not like I've swallowed a football, I need to give it the swerve (a very sad sentence indeed).
I've been so tired and busy since I got back that I haven't been meal planning or food shopping properly either, and dinner has usually been something I've grabbed on the way home from work, or a mish-mash of things from the fridge or freezer. I want to get back to prepping and planning meals in advance and making sure I fit lots of protein and veggies into my meals. It's when I don't plan and just grab things in the shop (or from a takeaway) that I make bad choices, so being more prepared will definitely help.
