Last night I was a complete glutton and I do mean glutton. I ended up devouring a HUGE slice of carrot cake. Really it could have been considered two slices with 1/2 lb of cream cheese frosting. Mmmm, it was so good but I did not need to eat as much as I did and my tummy made that very clear as it rumbled/yelled at me throughout the night. The sugar induced comma also made it difficult to get to sleep.
On a side note, I know I will never have sub 15% body fat....BUT it is nice to eat whatever I want, whenever I want and not worry about turning back into Miss Piggy - previous blog reference. I was tired upon waking :( so much that I forgot my aqua shoes and belt in the car and post swim had to run out of the gym in my bikini, ok, ok, I had a towel around my waist. Brrrr, it was cold this morning - but it helped wake me up.
