Exhaustion

Saturday, September 29, 2012

So yesterday I learned something new.

Yesterday, my middle child came to work with me in the afternoon. On a normal day, I have a snack of apple and peanut butter at around 3. That snack helps me get through the rest of the afternoon so that I don't eat all the junk food in the house as soon as I get home. I couldn't have that snack yesterday - my son is allergic to peanut butter and apples - so I ate potato chips and frites corn chips when I got home. I'm proud of myself for limiting their quantities but surprised at the next thing. I was absolutely exhausted after eating the chips! I had to go straight to bed at 7 pm - I could barely function.

The exhaustion felt familiar. I felt like this every day - ironically when I was eating chips every day. How strange that eating chips could bring on exhaustion! I wonder why that happens. I mean, eating potatoes baked doesn't do that (I think).

Anyway, I learned another reason to keep away from the chips.
