Ok, now the weekend was a complete 48 hour binge, but I’m pretty sure I undid about 98% of all the work I’d put in this entire last month.
Friday night I had a couple girls over to celebrate my promotion and watch the season premiere of New Zealand’s Next Top Model. I grabbed a bunch of fresh veggies and made a snack platter. Awesome, right? Go me! Well, those veggies aren’t quite as great for you when they’e eaten with creamy onion dip. Oh, and with cheese and some chips and sausage rolls (!?!). And 3 glasses of champagne. …and some little biscuit things.
The icing on the cake, though, had to be Saturday morning. What’s the best thing to do after a night of slight overindulgence? Swing by McDonald’s for breakfast! gag. Yes. I don’t know what possessed me, but I started Saturday with an egg McMuffin (minus bread and only 1/3 the sausage – after 2 bites it was passed on to the bf), 1.5 hashbrowns (the extra half was from the bf for the sausage) and a small orange juice. UGH.
The rest of the weekend wasn’t really so bad, but was mainly spent feeling absolutely gross and bloated and blah. I had some yogurt and chopped up nectarine Saturday afternoon and a small bowl of green curry chicken on brown rice for dinner. Sunday was yogurt with muesli, leftover green curry chicken and rice, some fresh homemade gluten-free bread and a roast for dinner with roast potatoes, onions and garlic, steamed carrots and broccoli and a little gravy. Oh, and an apple in the evening.
It could’ve been worse.
It could’ve been way better.
To top it all off, my period starts today. Technically, that could be an excuse. I could explain (some of) the bloating. I also usually have an absolutely bottomless stomach right before, too. Increased appetite and rarely feel full after eating. That said, I can usually get around that by being conscious of it and eating what I think I should be eating and not just because I’m “hungry”.
Anyway, it’s over and done with and I can’t do anything at this point to change it. So onwards and upwards! I feel awful – physically – still. Bloated and sluggish and bleh. …the way I used to feel everyday before I switched my lifestyle! And I hate it. So detox week. Get back on track and remember this feeling any time I think about swaying again.
Hope your weekend was filled with far better foods than mine!
