Big surprise for me today
Sunday, November 02, 2014
Even though I have regained much of the weight I lost, I have still attempted to eat healthy...just generally ate too much, too often. My mother in law, aunt, sister and my mother all died over the last 10 months, and my best friend was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer. My brother in law also developed serious heart issues. Call it a reason, or call it an excuse, but my weight/fitness got pushed into the background.
This past Monday, I refocused, I tracked, and I 'upped' my exercise program. Not doing hours each day, but more than over the past months.
Sunday? Treat day. What to do? I didn't want dessert hanging around, that is for sure. Fish was on the menu for tonight, along with a potato dish. I have not had fried fish or potatoes in forever! (I am gluten free, so getting fried food in a restaurant is not an option, and I extremely rarely will deal with the bother, so fried food is a real treat.)
Treat? Wrong! To my surprise, I hated it! I feel awful. Uncomfortable and bloated, though I did not overeat. I have no idea why my memory of fried food is so much better than the reality. Lesson learned. I will go back to my Cajun seasoning sprinkled on the naked fish, pan 'fried' in a nonstick skillet with spray, or at most, half a tablespoon of olive oil and half a tablespoon of butter to cook the entire amount of fish.
