Note to self: Eating three donuts in one day is not only going to make you feel like mental and physical crapola for the rest of the day, but it is also doing you no favors in the whole TTC journey. Remember, the idea is to create a healthy, strong body that is looks and feels like a happy home for a baby. Not a ride on the Tunnel O'Sugar through Wonka Land.
Here's what happened though. Student brought in three boxes of donuts and said, "hey, can you guys get rid of these? I brought them in for a class and someone else did too so we have extra." I'm a nice person, so I said "Sure! We'll take em off your hands!" and I ate one.
Then I started to feel kinda down on myself for having no control. But, what the hell, I already ate one donut. What's two? So I ate another one.
Then later my stomach started growling, because (newsflash), donuts aren't great at keeping you feeling full for a long time. And I didn't have any other food. So I ate a third one.
Fast forward two hours. Enter me wanting to die because I have spinny head and a stomach ache, much like after overindulging on booze.
You'd think, as a runner, that I would be a little more discriminating on what I put in my body. Especially given that I just spent the last three months on a strict gluten-free diet, with quite limited refined sugar. AND especially because I felt way better on that diet than I do now, all gluten-y and sugar-tastic.
Ugh. I need to get back to that. Or at the very least not gorge myself on three donuts and feel all gross and overloaded and a little wobbly from my body not knowing what the heck to do with so much junk.
Well you heard it here first: I'm going to take the lead from the ladies of blogs like Cease and Decyst and In Due Time and get down to business with eating for fertility! Step one is figuring out exactly what that means for me.
What diets / fertile foods have you tried? Was there anything in particular that worked?
