Today is World Egg Day ... eat an egg to celebrate. :)
After having such a huge stomach ache after lunch yesterday I had to wonder what caused it. I had jalapeño peppers which were nice and spicy spicy hot. I enjoyed them more than anything else in my salad, but the rest was quite yummy too. Philly steak, mushrooms, a slice of swiss, a small dollup of sour cream, spinach leaves. Yum yum yum. But sudden and intense pain about 20 minutes later. Huh?
Spicy foods don't really effect me. I love them. But of course the first thing I wondered was if my reign over spicy things had finally come to an end. My birthday is at the end of this month. Am I finally getting *no no no* old? But then I remembered that I had jalapeños just a few days ago at our company lunch party. They didn't bother me then. They have never bothered me before and I just can't imagine that was it. Cro suggested that perhaps the sour cream was bad. :/ It didn't taste off ... it tasted good. Cro said that sour cream can be off but still taste fine. Okay ... maybe it was the sour cream. It was a violent stomach ache so it had to have been something. I don't know. Lactose has bothered me in the past, but not like that. I guess it will remain a mystery. Maybe I'll eat that type of salad for lunch again today and see if it hurts my stomach. I'm brave (and stupid) like that in my quests to discover answers. :P
Traditionally I've allowed Saturday to be my "up-it day". Meaning that I eat very little all week but allow my carbs and calories to be a little greater on that one day. I'm so close to being in the 160's though. Maybe I should continue starving this weekend so that I can see the 160's on my scale by end of next week. I want so badly to be in the 160's soon. By my birthday would be awesome. Should I feck with my routine to force it there faster or should I hold the course knowing that it's slow but at least sloooowww and steady? Someone give me a pep talk. I need to know you guys are there. I've done well in the past year and a half but it's still difficult. I know it always will be.
