Howdy folks! I just loved this picture, even though it's Migraine Barbie, just picture the vice a little lower down on the throat for my purposes!
My weekend was crazy busy, Friday we had our school auction for my youngest son. It was fun, busy, but fun and we raised $80,000.00 for the school! Saturday evening, we went to a shrimp boil and enjoyed a wonderful evening at our friend's boat house, great food, great atmosphere and great company! My band was so cooperative that night, I barely ate during the day but that night, miraculously I was able to eat a bit of everything (sadly that included 440 calories worth of coconut pecan cookies!) but it was great. Sunday morning, I woke very early because my boys had to serve at church at 7:30. As always on the mornings they serve, we went to McDonald's after to pick up breakfast. I usually don't eat in the mornings until 9:30 or 10, because I'm tight, I'll enjoy my coffee then eat later on. Now looking back, I realize that I didn't have my coffee for one thing and secondly, I decided I would try to eat at 8:45, these were both mistakes. As soon as I realized I couldn't eat, I stopped, but it set the stage for a day of misery for me, that along with the fact, that the night before I overindulged. Has anyone else noticed that when you over do it one day, the next day you're super tight? Well, it's a pattern for me. Anyway, I was stuck early on in the day, I just waited it out and it passed and I napped. I tried to drink a glass of milk at lunch time, stuck, later on I got stuck on water, then on a bit of wine (trying to prime the band) stuck on warm tea, stuck on water, stuck on ice cream, I threw up several times last night and was really hurting. I was really thirsty and hungry and feeling very sorry for myself....(another pattern!) Anyway, today I'm better, still very sore, but able to drink water and coffee this morning. I'm sticking to liquids and mushies today and hopefully things will be back to normal soon. I will, one day learn how to avoid days like that. I hope. I know that when I am having a day like that, I shouldn't try even ice cream, just try to sip water...slowly! It's frustrating and it really brings out the whiny baby in me, but it is a small price to pay for all the rewards that the band has brought me. It feels good today to be on the smoother side of things. I hope you all have a wonderful day and a great week ahead of you!
