I went to a party last night and crashed my diet big time. Though there was no alcohol at the party, the carbs I ate have left me feeling hung over. I feel sluggish, nauseus, sight is hazy and zoned out.

These periodic "cheats" are becoming less and less fun!


You know, that's one of the things that's kept me on the straight and narrow. During my first week of induction, I absentmindedly took a bite of my son's popsicle... and 20 minutes later, crashed. Wiped out. Kablooie.

After that experience, I dreaded sugar, didn't crave it at all.

Oddly, when I celebrated the end of induction with a couple of glasses of scotch, it didn't knock me for a loop at all. The next morning, I didn't feel even a little hung over, which was no big surprise -- two drinks never caused a hangover before. In fact, the Russians taught me that eating fat when you drink (and we're not talking about just two) is actually a hangover preventative. The fat molecules surround the alcohol molecules and slow their absorbtion, or so they say.

And yes, I know that alcohol is a one-day "time out" with regard to weight loss. (Why is that? That is, why isn't alcohol like sugar?) Beats a piece of cake though.
