I fell a little off the wagon today. At first it was unintentional, and then it became intentional.
I got a salad from the HyVee salad bar and loaded up on veggies, chicken, and pickled herring. I figured I hardly ever eat fish at home, so I should take advantage of fish on the salad bar. As I started to chow down, however, I felt my mouth become all phlegmy. That damned pickled herring was loaded with sugar! Who knew!?
For supper I met some friends in Muscatine. We ate at this amazing Mexican restaurant that is totally worth the 40 minute drive to Muscatine (not that meeting my friends wasn’t worth the drive in and of itself, of course). I just HAD to taste their chips and salsa; I haven’t had it for 1.5 years! I got chicken tacos with avocado, fully intending to just eat the innards, but the corn tortillas looked too good to resist. I ate the tortillas on 1 taco, and the insides of the rest of the tacos. I got my just desserts however, when I went to the bathroom after eating my meal and had to dodge a cockroach to get back out of the bathroom. Sigh.
Pollen count: 4.10 out of 12
Allergy symptoms: Still had the head fog and the post nasal drip. I’ve resisted taking Allegra so far…
General feelings: I didn’t crave sugar much today at all. When I got home from supper I cut up a bunch of veggies – zucchini, green peppers, radishes, celery, carrots, & onions, so that I’ll have a good medley to cook with eggs tomorrow, as well as some healthy snacks for work.
Tomorrow is another day, as they say, so hopefully I can do better than I did today.
