I fell off the wagon this last week. Not because I had been overeating, but I haven't track my meals lately. The reason for this is my brand new piercing that I had been wanting to get done for years. Yes, years! Last friday I finally got my courage and went for my long wanted tongue piercing.
The piercing itself wasn't painful, I'll describe it as "awkward". It was like a pinch in the tongue (not as painful as biting your tongue), then a feeling of "I have a f***** needle in my..!!!" and before I even finished that thought the all thing was over and done. Nice.
In the other hand, the healing process is a bitch. My tongue is so swollen that I have been eating foods I would normally never eat, like ice cream, popsickles, mashed potatoes every day... and very little of foods that are staple on my diet like meat, chicken, beans, WW grains, and the like.
So I don't even wanna know how much calories I have been eating, but I calculate something around 1,300 kcal, in a lucky day. Yeah, that low. So I'm probably loosing some muscle, but the good news is I had to make a new hole in my belt! This because i have been BEER-FREE for 5 days, yay!!!
So, about this piercing:
- Easy to maintain a low-calorie diet
- Alcohol-free days without effort
- At age 29, I know I did it because I really wanted it and not for a fad
- Most calories are coming from crappy foods
- Tongue swollen, couldn't talk right for the first few days
- I had to learn how to eat all over again
