Last night we had dinner with my daughter and her hubby. We ordered food from a Mexican restaurant. The meal comes with 3 soft tacos and I had calculated the calories to fit in my calorie budget for the day. So I was pretty excited.
Well I had my first taco and was feeling full already. I wanted to stop and even pushed my plate away. But there were my two lonely tacos, just sitting there, waiting to be eaten. Slowly I ate them and even managed to get in a few chips with guacamole.
Afterwards I felt sick....the worst part is, they were cold and did not even taste that great.
Why oh why do I do this to myself?
Anyway, we came home and I went to bed at 10:00pm. By midnight, my stomach was rolling. I actually had spasms that felt like a baby kicking. A little panic came rushing in ~ I'M PREGNANT and then I realized that that's not possible as I've had a hysterectomy. Then another little panic came in and I worried, that maybe the doctor made a mistake, he did not get out all my parts and there really is a baby kicking. YIKES!!!
No no no....I am just suffering from eating too much of the wrong foods.....AGAIN!!!!
Two nights prior I've woken up with severe stomach pain ~ One night it was because I had eaten too much and the other night was because I ate too late. This is the 3rd night in a row that I've lost sleep because of my bad food choices.
Since I've gotten my diet a lot cleaner, I find that I cannot tolerate food the way I used to. Which is kind of a good thing. Because now, I am realizing it's not worth eating the wrong thing or eating too much food at the wrong time. Doing the wrong thing hurts just enough that I have incentive not to do it!
I think I am learning my lesson. There is just nothing that tastes that good, that is worth suffering this kind of pain. I am beginning to realize that making the right food decision is really best for me in so many ways. I need to look at the things that hurt me like they are poison, because that is what they really are. I really do feel poisoned right now. It's a feeling that I do not want to ever experience again!!
From now on ~ I am making better choices!!
Do you pay the price for your poor decisions?
