Oh, that's why...

I haven't been that great at working out or eating super healthy in the past 2 months or so. But honestly, it's been kinda nice! So last night, on our way home from a MLM meeting, I asked Tyler to stop at McD's for some fries. I haven't had fries in... months? I used to have them at least once a week I think. So I was STARVING! I was starting to get 'the shakes' and was excited to get some food in my system! So we stop and I got a fish fillet meal. With the large fries. And the largest chocolate shake known to man. Which I then proceeded to scarf down in a very short period of time. It tasted SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! The fries were perfect! They were the perfect texture. Not too crispy, not too mushy. The right amount of salt. Everything! Of course, the immediate downside was the bad french fry aftertaste. The unappealing thick starchy taste in my mouth. Oh well, nothing a little (or a lot) of a chocolate shake can't remedy. So here I sit, at 4:00 a.m. wide awake. Why? Because I feel like CRAP! I'm bloated and feel like I can hardly breath. My stomach is upset and I have heartburn, and bathroom issues! (Don't worry, I won't include details.) Just a friendly reminder to myself that I must have been eating better than I though I was for this to upset my system this way. Fast food sucks!

Oh sick! Too bad they can't chemically alter that food to give you better side effects like they chemically alter it to taste like heaven WHILE you are eating it. Thanks for the reminder that fast food sucks!!

UGH! That's awful! Fast food has moved wayyy down on my cravings list lately funny how it does that as you get "older". Hope you feel better today. Drink lots of water and flush it all out ;)

Of course!!! I'm so sorry! I think it's nice to have those reminders though. When our bodies say, "Um, hello? Are you trying to kill me?"
