Deep Fried Heart Attack
I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. Matt and I had an incredible weekend in Cape Cod (Chatham) for a friend’s wedding. The town was charming (Berkshires-by-the-sea I like to call it), the weather amazing, and the food…well, the food was fabulous. Matt enjoyed a super fresh (we ate it at the fishing pier) lobster roll TWICE this weekend and needless to say, he was in heaven.
I certainly indulged, too. I ate bread. And potato chips (I havent had a chip in years!). And french fries. No sweets, but lots of quickie, refined carbs that wreck havoc on my body just as sweet sugar does. I tried to spend the day yesterday getting myself back on track, but it backfired. My body wanted those “quickie” carbs, and I ended up binging on these raw agave sweetened crackers. In the past, I would have beaten myself up over my lack of willpower, but I recognized that my body (and eating habits) are seriously out of wack and it’s just going to take some time to get back to my normal routine.
Today I feel a little grumpy as I think I’m going through a sugar-like withdrawl. It’s the same feeling I had when I kicked sugar a few months back. Nothing to do but drink lots of water, eat wholesome foods, and steer clear of any refined carbohydrate. Sigh.
However, just as I was feeling pretty crappy Matt came to my rescue and made me feel so much better. Because even if I indulged in foods that weren’t so good for me, in the scheme of things they weren’t that bad.
At least I didn’t eat THIS. Now THAT’S BAD! I mean, REALLY bad. It makes a french fry look as healthy as a vegetable!
