Wow what a week! I am down to the final countdown of three days until I move on to greener pastures in my career. Pause for happy dance!
I had a fabulous Mother’s Day with my family but I will admit I went on an absolutely disgusting eating binge. The kids made me breakfast complete with egg, sausage and cheese scramble, bacon, biscuits and orange juice. For lunch I ate two large slices of the worst pizza I have ever had in my life (yes Costco, I thought your pizza tasted like disgusting raw dough) and then the kids made me homemade chocolate chip cookies (my mother’s recipe). Was that enough? Apparently not because I topped it off with a bowl of Drumstick (you know those incredible yummy cones?) flavored ice cream covered in hot fudge sauce. Do NOT ask me what happened, all I know is that I went on some wildly insane binge all the while professing it was Mother’s Day. Monday I woke up with my face swollen from all of the sodium, the gluten I am not supposed to be eating as well as the peanuts I am a tad bit allergic to. FAIL.
When one falls down, one gets up again so that is exactly what I did Monday morning. I am back on track and eating healthy once again. I am STILL paying for all of the gluten I ate but I know better than to ingest something that is going to wreck my stomach…let alone spend a whole day ingesting foods that will wreck my stomach. I am pretty certain that my body will be in shock for several days. That will teach me! Um…hopefully!
I am not going to get on the scale this week because, well, I don’t wanna. : )
What I have learned: Drink plenty of water throughout the day, this has always helped me to eat less and avoid hunger pains…I probably should have done that on Mother’s Day. : )
