Tag Archives: ill



that word was running through my mind last night.
actually a quote was running through my mind last night as i was doubled over on my couch in pain:
the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
I’m a little insane 🙂
I went ahead and had a stir fry yesterday.
ugh, i know i know.
They are just so damn good!
I thought i would play around with it and actually get it without the garlic.  maybe it is the garlic that makes me feel so ill?
says the greek girl – garlic is a food group in my culture!
I was good all afternoon.  felt fine.  puurrrfect.
I was able to go home and get through a work out and even eat dinner.  and then it began.
I am pretty good at learning from my mistakes.  Generally if something doesn’t work for me the first time…i don’t do it again.
simple yes?
but this stir fry.  It’s like a sordid love affair.  Like being with someone that you know is not good for you but you keep going back for more and more.
Knowing what you are getting into each and every time…but to hell with the consequences.
Yup, my stir fry is my lover.
I just don’t know how to shake it.
Actually the way i am feeling right now…i can shake it no problem.  blahhh.
Ask me again in 2 weeks when i am down ordering lunch…if i can resist the temptation.
I’m gonna have to.  15 minutes of pleasure is not worth 2 days of pain.
or is it?????

carb flu

i spent the other day with some lovely friends, which of course included a lovely lunch and snacks…and but of course…wine 🙂
i went in to that day knowing full well that my carb counting would not exist, and to hell with the consequences!
oy vay i am dumb.
I won’t even tell you what i ate.  i am too ashamed! 
i was a bad, bad bee.
not to say i didn’t enjoy every single naughty second of it.
what can i say?  naughty suits me!
fast forward a few hours later.  i felt like death.  i crawled in to my bed and fell asleep.
i woke up a short time later feeling “off”…completely unwell.  I sucked it up and did the things i needed to do…
and went to bed early.
If you know me…i never go to bed at a decent hour.  it’s just unheard of in my world.
I woke up in the morning…and still felt like complete death.
it was around noon that i started to feel partially normal.
this has happened to me only a few times in my life.  After having a high carb meal, i actually have flu like symptoms.
i remember the first time i ate pizza after a year of low carbing.  it was insane!  i was soooooo ill.  sweats, fever…just ill i tell you.
I call it the carb flu.
damn you carbs!!!
I am 100% better today…and will think twice before even thinking i can handle a big bowl of pasta.
not gonna happen
(well not today anyways lol)
