Yesterday was a really bad day for me emotionally. Major crabby mood. It's been a long time since I was so cranky. After spending some time thinking about changes in my lifestyle over the last year, I realized that I have been eating more refined foods, sugars, and fat recently. December I ate a modified diet with treats. The plan was to maintain my weight. Since December, it's been difficult to not eat sugar, refined foods, and more fats.
The change in my diet has made a huge difference in how I feel. My migraine headaches returned in December, my nerves aren't as calm as they had been and I'm more easily depressed. Even though my diet still contained a large number of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, I need to go back to eating whole, low sodium, low fat foods. The delicious taste of sausage pizza is not worth the mood swings and blah feeling.
