Bad Night

Sunday, March 30, 2014

Yesterday evening my friend entered a cupcake contest. They had to make 100 mini-cupcakes, and the public could attend and try 3 cupcakes. My BF and I went to support our friends (her husband made a display, a smaller version of what they do on Cupcake Wars). There was only one gluten-free cupcake baker in the entire place! I tried that woman's 2 cupcakes, but had one more ticket to use. I made the decision to try my friend's cupcake, even though it wasn't gluten free.

I very rarely "cheat" on my diet. I know that eating gluten does damage to my inside. But it was a tiny cupcake and I really wanted to try my friend's creation.

Afterwards, we went to a nearby restaurant for dinner, and it takes gluten-free seriously. I'm not sure I like it that they put gluten-free food on red plates, whereas the rest of the diners get white plates (stigma!), but I appreciate their concern. I chose the fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes and carrots. It also came with a potato soup (though I could have had a salad). I ate nearly everything on my plate and OMG was I FULL!

When I got home, I felt SO SICK. I don't know if it was from the glutenous mini-cupcake or the copious amounts of food I ate, but I had stomach pains and even got clammy-sweaty at one point.

Unfortunately, I've been overeating much too frequently. Thankfully I don't usually feel as bad as last night, but I still need to find a way to slow my roll. What tricks do you use to not overeat?
