Kia Tupato e hoa ma!!
I have been trying to live a clean eating lifestyle based around Paleo living, nothing refined no processed foods.
Well I have had a pretty crap month so as I am kid free this weekend thanks to my lovely mother in law. Two bottles of wine later, bread with butter, tons of butter and jam, a cup of wheat based cereal with milk and hummus on tortilas at two am, I can quite honestly say I believe this is the worst hang over I have had in years. Then my husband says with no sympathy at all what did you think would happen when you ate all that sugar, you've poisoned your self.
So my warning is this SUGAR is the DEVIL. I am going back to bed to die quietly on a beautifull sunny day!!Crying or Very sad

Could it be that the Devil is alcohol and sugar is the messenger? Smile

It's possible. My wife and I just finished a bottle of Merlot and are calculating how light we'll have to eat tomorrow if we crack open another! In fact, just made the decision to do it! You know my motto: "Indulge then adjust!" Abbondanza!

lol I can relate completely. Ive had a very bad 2 weeks and to console myself I indulged in wine and more than was necessary vodka cocktails in a bid to cheer myself up. Each episode resulted in stuffing my face with the one thing I miss so badly when Im trying to lose weight; BREAD. Bread with butter and cheese, bread with bacon, bread with fried eggs, bread with sausages. Not to mention my daughter's cakes and (shame on me) one of her easter eggs!!! OOOOps. In my 2 week binge I put on 7lbs. Worst of all I didn't get the hangovers which would have put me off entirely. Lesson learned. Its not the alcohol as such that makes you put on weight its the face stuffing, 2am fridge runs, and soak up breakfasts that do the damage. Plus I now have to replace that Easter egg....BAD mummy Smile

Well, I got the hangover that you missed, Lisa! My head is POUNDING! Worst one in ages! I also had three scotches on the rocks before we decided to open the first bottle. Then had a second bottle. Then had a very nice night. Finished off with 12 hours of sleep after a week where I was exhausted every day. BUT... this hangover is about to kill me! Popped two non-aspirin and had a big glass of water. About to get on the treadmill for an hour to sweat it out, but the thought of that has me whimpering, too! Got to pay for the play! LOL. Have a great weekend. bp

What a laff I had with lisaappleton's comment re: raiding her daughters Easter egg collection during the binge. Thanks for sharing Lisa, and all of you characters who replied. As I heard in another group, "We are not a glum lot".

Amen to that! There is a reason they call them "beer goggles." It works for wine, too, of course, and I also 'lose my inhibitions' when it comes to seeing food I should not be eating when I'm a little tanked up! An update on my own poor head. I hopped back into bed for an hour and that did the trick. Now, on to the treadmill... enjoy the day, everyone!

No, we have this prejudice in the states, too. The helpless loser seen in the TV commercials because the advertisers know the woman makes most of the purchase decisions in the house. That sort of whiney man -- if he exists -- doesn't live in this house.

I was hoping to get a laugh. But I was not comparing in any way to a woman. I deserved the pain and I took care of it myself. I'm sorry. Maybe I am too macho, but I cannot stand the idea of weak men that women have to baby and take care of. It really bothers me that most folks simply take that as reality. But yes, by posting I did open myself up to the conversation, so I'll take the hit. My best to all.
