So yesterday was Purim, a very festive holiday with parties, costumes, food and booze. It’s honestly one of my favorite jewish holidays, maybe my number one. However this year was a bit hard considering my new life changes. But I decided that I wouldn’t deny myself the treats of the holiday. What I did do was make sure I didn’t go overboard on the junk food.
There were meals with pies and cakes and candy and brownies. I didn’t eat a ton of that stuff like I used to, though I probably had one too many shots of scotch (how “too much scotch” is a problem, I dunno, usually scotch is the answer).
At the end of the night, though, I felt gross and my stomach hurt the next morning. My face which had been clear this whole time broke out as well. Clearly seeing the effects sugar and junk have on my body now. We did take some left overs, nothing too bad but I did get some brownies, one for each of us.
It’s a new week, so a new start. Staying to my routines and did some DDPYoga today. Now It’s time to gear up to Passover, yet another eating holiday. I have decided that I am going to challenge myself. The 7 weeks after Passover are known as the Omer where we count up to the next holiday, Shavuot. This year I am going to do 7 weeks of DDPYoga. Every. Single. Day. I’ll do some before and after pics for that as well.
Time to get back on the train. Gotta stay on track. Lets do this!
