REMINDER: DON'T EVER EAT THIS AGAIN!!!!

CHIPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I must confess... Yesterday I wanted chips to snack on while I was watching Fullmetal Alchemist. I didn't have any, so I bought some today while I was grocery shopping. After I came home from the store, I ate my normal lunch but also had some chips with it. After about an hour, I went out for my run with Reaper because the weather was beautiful! Guess how I felt, just take a guess.


Very quickly after starting to run I felt like I was going to throw up everything I had just eaten. I could feel the acid creeping up my esophagus. Sorry if that's too graphic for you. And no, I don't have any problems like this normally. There was one other time this had happened while running, and I think I had either eaten chips or crackers... something of the sort before that run as well. Since I felt this way while running, I slowed it down to a walk for the whole way. I ended up walking longer just so I could get a decent burn out of it. I really wanted to run though...

I really hope this time I've learned my lesson with chips. In the past I've written a couple blogs about how badly they made me feel just so I could go back later on and remember that I don't want to eat them because of those feelings. But I don't get on here when I have the urge to eat chips.

So this time I've really gotta beat it into my head.
-CHIPS MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE CRAP WHEN YOUR BODY IS TRYING TO DO SOMETHING HEALTHY.
-CHIPS ARE THE CRAPPIEST FUEL FOR YOUR BODY.
-THEY ONLY TASTE GOOD WHEN YOU'RE EATING THEM, NOT WHEN YOU'RE DONE.
-CHIPS MADE YOU FAT IN THE FIRST PLACE! WHY DO YOU KEEP RUNNING BACK TO THEM?

I can't let myself give in to them anymore. I have to change my mindset and think of them as evil. I've decided to try and make a streak out of it. How long can I go without eating chips at all?

    Ladies, I follow Jillian Michaels' every word, of course I've heard of and tried Pop Chips!! ;P I agree, they are pretty good and I have eaten a whole bag before, which is still bad but no where near as bad as a whole bag of any other chips. Even though Pop Chips are good, I still prefer all the other worse kinds. Honestly, I'll even take Baked Lays over them :X They're just so yummy :'(

    JCDROLSHAGEN: I think you're right... My body is probably wondering why I'm giving it this crappy food all of a sudden when it's been getting cleaner food almost all the rest of the time.

    I've thought about making my own baked chips, but never got around to actually trying it.

    Thank you for all the great comments! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one out there that has a deep relationship with chips lol

    A couple of years ago, I tried making homemade chips. They aren't "healthy" but probably much better than store bought. The trick to getting them just right is putting them in cold water right after you slice them, then press them with a towel or something to dry them and throw them in hot oil. It's a little work but well worth it for the occasional treat. (Chips are a problem for me too. I just haven't found a good replacement to go with a sandwich!)

    I can't workout for at least 3 hours after eating a meal in general. But when it's something greasy... no way. And I LOVE chips, I totally get where you're coming from. Im sorry, they really need to make chips healthy... (not just healthier) we're in 2012 people, gimme some health chips! lol
    As Curvydiva said popchips are really yummy too! There are a few other brands that are similar to them that are tasty but I cant think of what they're called... my mom is obsessed with them, I'll track down the name and let you know!
    Hope you're feeling better! emoticon

    Probably after eating healthy, your body is rejecting all that fat! It is clean and it is saying why are you doing this thing to me?

    Have you tried original Pop Chips? They're delicious and muuuuuch better for you (both lower calorie and less processed)! I love them and would eat a whole bag if I were left to my own devices... but they come in individual servings that are like 100 calories, if you're ever having an intense craving!
