So I admit it, I'm a bit of a nutrition nerd.
Something happened today that totally flabbergasted me.
My boss came into a meeting with some fresh fruit. Blueberries and raspberries and such. I was thinking, "Good for her, snacking on something healthy for a change!"
And then, she left the room, and came back with sugar packets! She proceeded to dump like three packets of WHITE SUGAR on FRUIT.
My eyeballs popped out of my head. I think I even sputtered something like, "But that's SO bad for you!" then realized it is not my place, and quickly transitioned into work talk.
Really? White sugar? On FRUIT? That isn't good for anyone. Nevermind that she's preg, you can set that aside. Nevermind that she probably had bad enough endo to be infertile for a while. It is bad for you if you are not TTC at all! It is bad for you if you're a MAN, baby!
So I like to think most educated people that speak English have gotten the newsflash that white sugar, white bread, white rice, etc., is bad for you. But I still see these random examples that astound me. And sure - what is 'healthy' is different for different people, there are different levels of healthy, certainly. And I myself prefer white sugar to high fructose corn syrup if I only have the choice between the two (and somehow choosing neither is out). But... fruit is already sweet!!
It's not to say I'm perfect (yes, the view from my high horse is lovely, thank you), or that there shouldn't be 'sometimes foods' - I love sometimes food, I've eaten quite a lot of pie in the last few days.... but really. Food is fuel for your bod, not just something that tastes good.
I even pray that my lenten prayer buddy is eating healthy, even though she has bigger things on her plate. But I can't help slipping it in!
Ok, back to our regularly scheduled 2WW. My temp rose in one day instead of it's usual two days - so that's good!! If it wasn't for this mysterious abdomen pain, I would think maybe this isn't such a bad cycle after all. They do say a long cycle often precedes a lucky cycle....! So I'm hoping AF can hold off a few extra days this month.
