Confessions of the Unfaithful

You know all about the breakup.
You know how we have chosen to go our separate ways.
It was for our own good.

But I was unfaithful...

I ordered a White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks this morning.

And last night we ate Chick-fil-A for dinner.

I feel terrible.

I should pay some sort of penance for my crimes.
You know...
like writing lines or something.

I will never cheat on my Paleo diet again.
I will never cheat on my Paleo diet again.
I will never cheat on my Paleo diet again.
I will never cheat on my Paleo diet again.

But my body is punishing itself for my unfaithfulness.
I've spent that last couple of hours curled up in the fetal position on the couch because my stomach was cramping so badly. I've been running to and from the bathroom all morning because I've been sick. 
{And NO, I am not pregnant}
My body is in full on retaliation mode.

Dear body,

I promise to make better choices.
I will not do that to you again.
Please ease up on your relentless punishment.
Pretty please.



  1. It's OK to have a treat when you need it! It's so much better to have that treat and get back on the "good food" bandwagon the next day/meal instead of yearning for that food forever.

    1. I know that it's Okay to cheat every now and then... my body just doesn't seem to be agreeing with me. I haven't had processed food or sugar in weeks. My tummy is cramping like nobody's business. :/

  2. Uh oh - hope tomorrow night will be ok

    1. I'm sure things will be fine. I just need to make good choices. :)

    2. I'm sorry you're feeling so badly. I totally understand, my body does the same thing to me. When I went G-Free I realized it was just impossible to be on such a strict diet so I decided to do things more conservatively rather than so radically that way I didn't have severe reactions when I occasionally ate something that was G-Free or processed. It worked for me but it's not for everyone. Hope you get to feeling better, those stomach cramps are the worst!

  3. Maybe there's a Paleo substitute for Chick-Fil-A? :) Tofu-Fil-A? Bean-Fil-A? I'll ask around. :)


I love reading your comments! They brighten my day!
