So in the course of Human Events...it has been driven home to me, innumerable times, - -Go with your first thought..do NOT go with husband's great idea! And yet again, I weakened!
I said OK, Stop at those damn golden arches...so you can use your coupon.
It's 2:30 pm...I haven't had anything in the last seven and a half hours but a few water bottles. We were at my late Aunt's house...trying to empty it for sale. Long ~Hot~ busy day. Too long for my diabetic self to go...I was shaky, sweaty, and had a bad headache. So he got big mushroom swiss Angus burgers, and McCafe's...Almost equal to what my daily limit is for calories...over for fat and sodium. Then, after I had almost finished drink on the drive home, he informs me that this McD's did NOT have the Sugar Free Syrup, I usually get for this drink...so as a diabetic I was in double trouble!
Got home, turned on A/C, and ate burgers..I shared 1/4 of my burger with the dog, plus only ate half the Bun.
I know, sort of like skipping the cherry on a big Sundae! Too little to have been any help!
But, I rationalized it that this would be lunch and dinner...I really needed to eat...plus it was Easy... fast..and tasted wonderful!
Within the hour, I was violently ill ! Both directions. Stayed that way next 6 hours! Miserable!
I so PAID the price for this caving in to what I knew was not the best plan...and just taking the easiest, lazy, hungry way. Some of the blame goes right to my low blood glucose...I do get stupid when I'm having a low. And after being Diabetic for the last 23 years of our 38 year marriage, you would think I'd have learned that DH rarely has "good ideas" that will be to my benefit!
Hoping that being "too late smart" as old Amish used to say..will be a lesson that sticks. Stop taking the easy way out...it not often the smartest way.
Don't fall blindly for, right there, right now, fast food! I could have been home and fixed a salad in 30 to 45 minutes. And felt good the rest of the day.
Telling myself to look on the bright side..I lived...I didn't blame him OUTLOUD...I tossed some of those calories...and sure got a whole lot of exercise, that I don't normally get!
And today is a new Day!
