My Belly Is Full of Blech

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Over the last month or so, I've been working on my diet. I've slacked off on obsessively logging foods. I'm paying a lot of attention to the quality of what I eat. I'm trying to avoid deep-fried things as much as possible. This new direction stems from reading a couple of Matt Fitzgerald's books.

Last weekend, The Hubs and I ate pizza for dinner Saturday night, and then he wanted to eat dinner at a restaurant on Sunday night. (The man worked more than 140 hours in that two-week pay period. He deserves a little pampering.) I had a sloppy, greasy cheeseburger and tater tots. emoticon

Today, a bunch of my co-workers brought in stuff for an impromptu 4th of July celebration. I ate two massive cookies, two large servings of potato salad and baked beans, several chocolate-covered strawberries, and a burger. I would really like to puke right now.

I feel like crap. I'm putting the bulk of the blame on the cookies. I suspect that is simply too much sugar, too fast. I have a strong family history of Type II diabetes, and I find that if I ingest a lot of sugar quickly I get woozy and headachy. I'm planning to go swimming this evening. I really hope I feel better before then!

This experience is a nice reminder. Eating well not only pays dividends in the long run, sometimes eating stuff I should avoid comes with immediate consequences.

Tonight, I will have a ridiculously large salad with some blue cheese and rice. Simple, clean, healthy. And I will feel better!

    I hear you! During shiva we ate finger foods and by the end I was a bloated mess. Getting back to real food and a schedule has been helpful.

    Hope the salad and the swim cure your ills!
