BuffyBear's Journal, 17 December 2011

I thought I could handle the Chex Mix.

Yesterday I made a double batch. Then I ate a bowl - after all it contains whole grains and nuts right? Long story short - with DH off on hunting trip I ended up taking the tin of Chex Mix into the living room to watch TV. What was I thinking?

Work up this morning feeling like the Goodyear Blimp. 2 lbs up - I realize it is mostly water but that doesn't help my mood. I am in full blown carb hangover.

165.0 lb Lost so far: 21.0 lb.    Still to go: 33.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

I can completely empathise with the carb hangover! But like I keep telling myself, I'll no better not to do it again! Good luck and remember to drink lots of fluids today.

Pam-u-la - thanks for the sympathy. First thing I did the morning (after my coffee) was to cut up a lemon and start drinking lemon water. I can almost see my fingers now.

Yvonne - think sometimes my brain becomes disconnected. Am drinking lots of lemon water. Can't get anything done because it seems like I'm running to the bathroom every 5 minutes.

LOL glad I'm not the only one running to the bathroom....my hubby says we need a revolving door I spend so much time there.....my brain I think disconnected once I hit menopause......LOL

Know how you feel Buffy. Really makes you wonder what you were thinking. But it happens to us all of us. Know what you mean about the bathroom. Seems like I spen hours in there some days.

Ahhh... Chex Mix! That is a fond memory I have and it wouldn't do me to make that in this household either! I would have done the same thing! Glad you thought to start on the lemon water.

Oh, Buffy. Just read this entry. So sorry you had to have tht experience. However......you said you made a double batch so-o-o-o....Where's the other batch? Perhaps it should be gifted to someone to get it out of the house???? Good luck....hope you're back to feeling better soon.

Been there, done that. Live and learn but for me I just haven't gotten the learn part done. I still indulge and regret. Enjoy your lemon water.

Sorry to hear about your slip. Happens to all of us. You are back, aren't you? Now, what is this about the lemon water, why not plain water?
