Tomorrow (Monday 2/7)'s my birthday, and I’m awfully tempted to chance some foodstuff that I’ve been avoiding since dx. Maybe I’ll work out, then come home and try it, with my system programmed by the exercise to be in good shape.
I really don’t want to have a crappy birthday evening, . . . but I’ve no work scheduled for the day, and if I don’t indulge on my birthday, when?
Definitely go for it - i was just telling my mother who is 93 and can eat anything she wants that i dont eat pizza any more unless it’s a rice pizza shell and just a bit of sauce and some green chili on it and a tad of cheese thats it and it’s very rare - she said gosh that’s not living!!! that’s how i feel about my life most of the time that i’m not living - everyone i know is out having fun going places and doing things and eating out etc and i’m at home eating my boring food - i’m gonna get brave one of these days and reintroduce some foods too.
Happy Birthday, David! Go ahead and try some forbidden foods… you may find that a singular indulgence doesn’t have too severe of an impact as opposed to continuous overload on food triggers. Enjoy!
A few minutes later, a Ghirardelli 55% cacao chocolate chip: MmmmHmmm . . . but didn’t enjoy the bitter aftertaste, as I lay with its vestiges on my tongue for the next ten minutes.
A salted almond: eh.
Some bits of salted cashew: again, eh.
A few bites of pumpernickel bagel spread with orange marmalade: Ahhhhh.
Treats treats treats. It will be quite enough for me if this smattering of yummy forbidden stuff shows me that I can safely add just a wee bit of this and that into my diet. I might roll some Irish whiskey in my mouth after dinner (and swallow). Perhaps following a nibble of colby.
Wow, way to go, David! Hey, the whiskey sounds goood… At least you’re only trying little bits of things. Don’t know that I’d have that much discipline. I’d probably go for some cake for sure.
