So, last night the power went out again, and instead of being able to eat the pork and green beans that were in the crock pot, we took ourselves off to Pizza Hut to, ostensibly, celebrate my name day. In order to eat at Pizza Hut I had to go off my diet. This was not the type of Pizza Hut with a salad bar.
So we ordered Pizza. And cheesy breadsticks.
I'll admit I enjoyed them. But I could. not. eat. as much as I used to eat when we would go to Pizza hut....not that I've ever considered myself to pig out there, or anything. It's just that I didn't eat the normal amount.
And driving away I was nauseous. Very nauseous. And I stayed that way for quite some time, until I had a biblical glass of wine to settle my stomach. And even then...semi-yech.
Was it the carbs?
The other things that I wonder is if the nausea might indicate a gluten issue. Because the other thing I've noticed is that even while counting carbs, if I am eating carb-controlled gluten or wheat containing products such as low carb tortillas, or carbquick bake mix, even while staying within my carb limits, I don't lose any weight.
In fact, I tend to gain. Is it water retention? Is is actual fat gain? Who knows???? But the scale goes up and stays up and does not go down again...even with the carb totals being OK for the day.
Between that, and the nausea last night, and the fact that heretofore, things made of wheat flour are my very favoritest things in the whole wide culinary universe..bread, pasta, cake, cookies, etc....it just makes me wonder.
Today I'm so glad to be back on the straight and narrow. My motto is that every experience, especially the set backs, are learning experiences. And I can go forward from here.
And the scale still hates me. But I hate it, too, so we are even.
