Carb Loading-Not as Exciting as I Thought
Thursday, June 21, 2012
Yesterday was a carb-loading day. I was so excited. I woke up early to make myself a belgian waffle smothered in peanut butter and (lite) syrup. And it was soooo good. But then, a strange thing happened. I got that starchy pinched feeling in my gums. Like the dirty feeling you get after downing a half-dozen donuts. I ignored it.
For lunch I got a fried chicken wrap from Sonic with potato chips. And again I got that queasy, over-starched, lethargic late afternoon feeling. I ignored it again.
I had a coffee in the late afternoon to wake me up from the carb coma I was in.
My husband made burritos for dinner. I ate them even though I was feeling carb-xausted. And then I fell asleep at 9:00. And had weird dreams about evil fish that eat dogs and walk upright.
So, I dunno what that means. But I will definitely try to make better carb choices on my carb-loading days in the future. That was just unpleasant.
