I just had 2 pieces of pizza for lunch. Then afterward had a piece of peach cobbler at my company potluck.
I feel like garbage... like I have a brick in my stomach. And now I have a sugar headache. This is ridiculous. It's going to be quite a while before I try to pull a stunt like this again.
Sometimes confessing these things can help you and others learn from it rather than bottling it up inside and not telling anyone. But if you find yourself coming to this thread to put another i-just on here too many times, it may reveal to you that you i-just too often. (kinda like when you track your frivolous spending for the first time ever, only to be shocked at the truth. haha)
What did you "just"?
I have chosen to make this a Community Wiki so that votes do not play a role.
I just learned that a month of higher carb intake, even from paleo sources such as rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, plantains, and bananas, has caused me to gain 12 pounds. At least, that's what the scale said :(
After my cousin's wedding this weekend, I'm gonna go back on the train. Promise.
Oooh you caught me Jack! Yesterday I ate a doughnut (and i am still paying for it) It wasn't even that good - and I knew at the time it was bad - but sometimes I just need to break a rule - next time I have to find a different kind of rule to break.
Dude, for the first time in like, forevah I ate a piece of pizza last night. Surprisingly I don't feel poorly today. I thought about it and wondered how much my icky feeling from cheats is caused by my mind rather than the actual food. So I've been fasting all day and didn't have any coffee but still, I feel guilty for the gluten.
Damn you for making me want a peach cobbler. (said as I'm licking the spoon used by my kids to make brownies )
I'm working on a Paleo based way of eating (notice how I didn't say "diet..."), purely for health benefits and food control. However, if, and when I do have a 'blow out' per say (and I will, I'm human, and I like food), I'm not going to get too stressed out about it. I do find it amusing that a lot of people who are attempting an alternative way of eating, discuss at depth, their opinions (educated or otherwise!) on 'this' and 'that' regarding nutrition etc, then in the next sentence, confess (with obvious guilt) their straying from the goal ie. eating 'non' paleo foods. I often wonder if people attempting paleo (or other), are doing themselves more damage, albeit emotional, by focusing sooo hard on 'being good', them making themselves sick with guilt and worry when they 'be human' sometimes. Please, relax! Be proud of your achievements, but don't worry so much if you have that piece of pizza, piece of cake, donut etc. It's not the end of the world. Climb back on the horse and continue. Because I guarantee, that you'll (including me) fall back off the horse again....and again. Big deal. (I'm sure if 'Grok' came across a 7/11 all those years ago, he wouldn't care if he went for the donut and ice cream, or stress out after it!!!!
I bought marshmallows at the grocery store last night.
I have a weakness for them -- no idea why, they don't even taste that great, but maybe it's a texture thing, or that I have a deep love for burnt carbon -- but they lure me in. It was a caramel flavored 'mallow. I ate two in the car on the ride home. Since then, I've been zeroing in on the bag every time I enter the kitchen, picking it up, holding it to my face, and inhaling deeply.
I don't mind that I ate them, but too much sugar and I start to feel like tepid death. Must. Exercise. Restraint.
Sigh, I love me some marshmallow. ^_^
I'm a non-traditional student back in college majoring in a high stress field (science). I can attest to caving into the pressure of my friends here and going on a hot-saki rendezvous at the local sushi bar. But I did consume high amounts of raw, wild caught fish with the Saki so that has to count for something, doesn't it?
I'm so excited I finally have something to add Peanut butter and banana. Yep. You heard right. I just ate a big banana smothered in peanut butter. Yeah go big or go home indeed. Hey it's the best I got!
On a side note, good grief that was so freaking delicious! Are we SURE peanut butter isn't paleo? Can we do a write-in campaign to get it on the approved list???
I have to go to the Godiva store this week for a gift so I may have more to add in a few days.
