My big mistake

Hubs got a gift card to The Cheesecake Factory from work, because he had been working so hard, so we decided to meet up for a late lunch today.

It started off really well, I ordered just water no soda, then for my entre I got my favorite, Pasta Divinci! Of course due to allergies I can’t eat the pasta, so I shared with MiniMe, she ate the pasta, I ate the chicken and mushrooms.

Then it all went down hill. She of course wanted cheesecake for dessert. So we took a look at the menu and there I saw it, that little gf notation on ONE cheesecake. The godiva triple chocolate. I thought “hey we’re celebrating a job well done, we have a gift card and it’s gluten free!

Big mistake. It may have been gluten free, but it sure as hell had wheat in it! A couple bites in…. Hello allergic reaction. Ok allergy meds taken. That wasn’t the end of it. Since I have cut sugar from my diet, I had a terrible time with those couple bites of cheesecake. I felt sick for hours after. I was nauseous, dizzy, and sooo tired I ended up spending quite a bit of time in the bathroom when we came home. YUCK!

So, I made a bad choice and my body paid for it. However it was a good lesson for me. Sugar truly is my enemy. It makes me feel absolutely miserable. This just reinforced to myself that I am doing the right thing by changing my diet.
