Well if this is not a lesson learned for me about eating something I just knew was bad for me then I don't know what else could have happened to me to wake me up and realize I need to go on my 1st instincts regardless of how bad I want to make someone else feel good for their time slaving over something in the kitchen.
Hubby just had to go and make his famously delicious Sausage and Ground Beef Lasagna for an office party at his place of work last night, and while I told him to take it all and not leave any behind he came home with some for my mom yet there was more than enough left when I asked him if so and to warm me up a piece. I just knew I shouldn't have but I did and now I am just not feeling well at all. I have heartburn which I have not had in a few weeks now not to mention the other end is suffering and the only good thing is it seems to want out of me more than I do as well my pedometer is getting quite the workout as I run back and forth to the bathroom.
Part of me was just feeling bad for dear hubby who stood all morning when he should have been sleeping and cooked this beautiful yummy looking lasagna and I did not even take the time to taste it. I thought if I told him to take it all in the dish he baked it in to work that it would not slide around while he delivered it to his work place and would not possibly make a mess in my car.
My mom who waited all day to eat some was upset when I told her I made him take it all to work with him, so I asked him if there was any left to bring her home some. I had no idea when I asked him later on in the evening which is like my lunch hour since I am a night worker to warm me up a small piece that there would actually be any leftover do so. Now I hate myself for eating it. Not sure of the nutrition facts but chose someones recipe for what I think was perty much the same and its 569 calories, 21 grams of carbs, 39 grams of fat though a healthy heaping 34 grams of protein I am just feeling like I wish Lasagna of any kind was never invented!
I know sausage is bad for me, why did I not realize and or remember he makes it using both ground beef and sausage DUH, figure I should have stopped after the 2nd bite when I did realize. NOoo not I, it was delicious, and I ate the whole piece even though a nice small portion from what I would normally have eaten before starting my journey towards a healthier smaller me! Big deal it did not make me any less ill!
So anyway that is all I wanted to say. I hope now that this has happened to me I have learned my lesson and I wont ever again try to make hubby feel good for cooking things not only bad for himself but obviously extremely bad for me. Just because he can't learn to stay away from fatty foods and he wants to stand all day and slave over the stove to make them for a party or otherwise, I certainly don't have to eat them and if my body says don't do it long before I have even put it on a plate or the 1st bite in my mouth then I best listen to what its saying to me or else its going to make me pay in a bad way for not listening to it!
I am actually learning what I can and can't eat. I have noticed in a big way what I should not put into my mouth and I can't wait until I am feeling better so I can not only workout but I can then focus on what I am going to eat for my next healthy meal and you can bet your butt it wont be Lasagna let alone sausage of any kind ever again.
Still feeling Ill
