Yesterday I spent the day in the city with my friends.
I ate like a King.
It's funny because even though for the most part I was making decent food choices, I still ate quite a bit more than I am used to (at least in the past month) and since we were dining out, it's hard to say what I was really putting into my body, you know? I enjoy and appreciate the fact that in NYC, the menus are required to have caloric values on them but I feel like those are still misleading.

Anyway, after eating and drinking and having a grand old time, I was so violently sick by the time the day was over, it was startling and disgusting. How sad that I did that to myself, but I suppose how great that my body rejected it the way it did, like punishing me for being so stupid.

Just like 2 weeks or so ago when I deviated from my normal lunch routine and had a wrap, leaving me with heartburn for the rest of the day, this was worse.

I got that whole "rewarding myself with food" idea out of my system, and the aftermath was pretty awful, I don't see myself making this mistake again.

I know I need to eat today, but I feel really gross, so I am probably taking it very easy and eating very lightly (here it is 3:20 and so far I've put nothing but water and a vitamin into my system so far).

What a fun learning experience getting healthier can be! hahaha.

    We all learn from our experiences, now you know better for next time. I wish I could have that kind of reaction when I eat cake maybe I would stop craving it so much.
