Resolutions be damned. There’s not one thing I resolve to do this year. The universe works in mysterious ways and far be it from me to question it’s motives or the lessons that have been raining into my life lately. Not sure how many more lessons I can shoulder anyway.
Recently returned from a trip to Texas, I am reminded to continue to be mindful about what I eat and where it originated. Scarfing VEGAN junk food is still scarfing junk food. My body’s revolt against too much fat and sugar hit me after eating two amazingly delicious vegan donuts just before I boarded the plane for the return trip. My heart raced, I began to sweat, and I was sure a heart attack was a moment away. Compounded by the cup o’ caffeine I washed them down with, I prayed (yep, me, I prayed) that a doctor was on board to at least jolt me back with the defibrillator.
Alas, the fervent tapping of my left leg for a good twenty minutes was enough to burn the sugar out of my bloodstream. Disaster averted!
My body is not used to eating donuts. Period. There was a reason I hadn’t eaten one in over two years; I needed a reminder, apparently.
Eating a balanced diet of any kind is the best any of us can do. While I’m sure I’ll consume junk food, portion sizes will be considered as will frequency of consumption. Feeling that terrible after eating crap was the universe’s way of reminding me of the commitment I made to my health and well being.
So here’s to good eating choices and only ONE donut at a meal in 2013!!
