I might be coming down with a cold which could interfere with determining which symptoms I’m experiencing came from the soy I consumed and which came from the cold. I had a sore throat starting late last night, so I’m fairly certain that the sore throat that I had today was a cold symptom. The bloating, heartburn and warm face I got today are almost certainly reactions to the soy I had for lunch.
The general fatigue and achey feeling I felt along with the brain fog and difficulty thinking that I experienced this afternoon and evening could be symptoms of either the cold or soy consumption. I also felt very irritable this afternoon which could have been a result of the soy, or may be that I am PMSing.
Because I didn’t feel well, I skipped workout today. I overate at dinner today. Something about almond butter makes me want to eat lots of it. I’m not sure what that indicates exactly. Perhaps my body thinks I’m not going to get a chance to eat fat again so I overeat on it when it is available. Or I’m not getting enough fat in my diet, so my body is craving it and over-compensates when it’s available. Or I overate on it today because I was emotionally eating from the stress and fatigue.
