You've heard fitness professionals and physicians say it over and over again. "Listen to your body!" This tip reigns true not only when you're working out or trying to see how far you can push your muscles, but also after a meal.
Last night, my uncle treated me to a big dinner. For the past few days, I've been helping him with his company's national convention, and as a thank you, he took me to dinner at the hotel where the event is taking place. Long story short, I chose the verde turkey club sandwich (because I'm as sucker for roasted chile peppers) and french fries.
Now before you start shouting at me for eating french fries, I had been such a hurry yesterday that the only things I was able to munch on were fruits and vegetables. I guess you could say I was pretty famished. I figured that with my PB [Pure Barre] work out and walking around in heels all day I deserved some delicious fries! I ate most of my meal and finished it off with a small cup of ice cream - Butterfingers ice cream! YUM!
Are you hungry yet?
Although the food was ridiculously good in the moment, the rest of the night my stomach felt miserable. I guess I'm just not used to digesting such heavy and oily food.
Moral of the story? LISTEN! When your body is giving you clear signs, even if it's after a workout or meal, take good notes! Learning to comprehend these directions will help you in the future. And in my case, reviewing these lessons will help to keep me extra healthy in the future!
Did this week fly by for anyone else? HAPPY FRIDAY, XO!
