Last night I had dinner with a friend that I met through Kate at Set This Circus Down. Laura and Kate have been friends since Kate lived in California. I initially met Kate through blogging because she moved to my hometown in North Carolina. Now, Laura is a military spouse with her husband stationed on the same base as mine! Isn't it such a small world? It was such a treat to meet this gal, and I am so thankful for Kate who kept in my ear about how much I needed to meet Laura!
Laura suggested one of my favorite restaurants, one that Ben and I go to often, so I was EXCITED (on top of being excited to meet Laura)!
I ordered my usual, the Kobe Beef Sliders which come with a small side of onion strings. I had been eating so well recently and I figured I could indulge a bit (or a lot in this case).
It was yummy, but when I got home and settled into bed, I started feel queasy and sick. It could have been the grease, the fried food, the white bread, but whatever it was, my body, that has been working so hard to remove the toxins I placed in it, was rejecting this meal.
For many reasons, after my husband left, I decided that I wanted to change my eating habits. I wanted to be the best me.
I wanted more natural energy!
I wanted to finally stop complaining to my friends about how I looked or how bloated I felt.
And I want to look good for my man.
Also, I've preached about using essential oils and trying to take the chemicals out of my home and out of the products I use. If I was going to remove the toxins from the outside, I needed to remove them from the inside too.
So last night when I had that "indulgent meal" and as sick as it made me feel, I am grateful for it. It was body telling me that the path I am on now is leading me in the right direction. And body, I am listening.
It's a cleanse day! Yay!
