This past weekend I went to my mothers and I ate her food. I never turn down my mothers (or grandmothers) food because I don't have it often but lately I've been thinking I should. Before, my only fear was gaining weight, which I now know doesn't happen in just one weekend. Since being primal I have no longer feared eating anything I want if it was rare because I stay thin with the 80/20 rule and all. Now that I've been primal for so long though, I've started to notice other side effects that I never even realized might be related before. Fist of all, even though I was sleeping as much as I liked my sleep quality was terrible. I kept waking up with an antsy feeling and sometimes stomach cramps. Also, I've noticed every time I go home I break out. My allergies get worse, I wake up with headaches, and I just don't feel that great. Not to mention it has me craving carbs for a few days after. Maybe that wouldn't be so bad if I generally kept my carbs higher than I do, but I usually don't eat much fruit and try not to eat starchy vegetables or drink too much beer. Anyway, I don't really know if this is all caused for sure by what I was eating, but it seems to consistently happen every time I go on vacation and eat less strictly. Back on track with food now for the last couple of days and pimples have already cleared, sleep has been good, I feel a lot better. Maybe it is just all in my head but whatever it is I'm going to have avoid going off primal so much when I go home or on vacation in the future because I am staring to think its not worth it.
Work out (did this on Monday)-
pull ups + negatives
all to failure, I didn't count them.
