Last night/yesterday I treated my body like one of these:
I met my friend and her boyfriend for cake at 3. I ate a huge slice of chocolate fudge cake, it was heavenly. I also drank a diet coke. Then we went and met another friend for a pub quiz, it was supposed to start at 4 but didn’t start till half 5. It was the worst organised quiz I have ever known, the machine with questions on it broke after the first round so then they had to use the kareoke machine to make a ‘name that tune’ second round. They totalled up the points and presented the prize to the ‘winning’ group and then read out the rest of our scores. Well, they hadn’t totalled our 2 rounds scores together! We pointed this out and she said, ‘oh, well you won then’. But we told her not to tell anyone and we didn’t mind. The ‘winning’ team were so chuffed! During the quiz I was geting hungrier and hungrier (I usually eat dinner at 5) and drank another diet pepsi and an orange juice with lemonade. It was 8 o’clock before we were heading home but I knew I was meeting a couple of friends in another pub at 9 so I went and picked up a chinese. Over the rest of the night I also had another 2 diet pepsis and 2 vodkas, 2 packets of crisps and a twix. ooops! I’m not beating myself up about this- 3 months ago that could have been a typical Saturday so it just reminds me how far I have come.
I can accept the cake and the chinese as treats but I don’t know why I ate the crisps and chocolate, by then I surely wasn’t still hungry.
Today my plan is to detox as much as possible with lots of water and hydrating fruit and vegetables. I made a jug of lime water for the fridge to keep drinking all day:
I need to flush out the salt from the chinese and crisps!
Tomorrow is my supermarket day but I really need some more fruit and veg for today. I’m not sure whether to go and do my weekly shop or go pick up a few things and go again tomorrow. Tesco is only 5 minutes away. The fruit and veg is always better on a Monday morning than on a Sunday. Hmm dilemmas! Today I also need to hoover, clean the bathroom and wash the kitchen floor. I can’t believe it’s already after 12!
Do you ever overindulge in the wrong foods? What do you do next?
