Birthday cake and regular pop

Friday, January 28, 2011

Last Sunday, we had our son's birthday party at a bowling alley. The bowling party included hotdogs and pop for everyone. I brought a chocolate cake that I made from scratch. I ate a hotdog, two small glasses of pop, and a moderate piece of cake.

I've been eating fairly clean for long enough, that I really felt the effects of the sugar overload. I felt nauseous. I'm glad, though, because it's a good indicator that I eat right, most of the time, and a good reminder of how this much refined carbs doesn't even feel good, anymore.

I don't regret or feel guilty about what I ate. I just took note, and started getting back on the treadmill regularly, to burn off the extra calories.

    Isn't that emoticon I'm a sugar fiend & rarely experience overload but have here a few times! But, the one that got me just the other day was real coke!!! OMG! SWEEEET! ICKY! This coming from someone who eats white sugar, brown sugar & powdered sugar out of the container with a serving spoon! I never did a lot of the stuff but since I got sick 4 years ago and have harsh sodium restrictions I only drink seltzer water. It's just tap water with bubbles. Soda water has more sodium than coke! Most people think they're the same thing!
