Glug, Glug. . . Blergh
Friday night was date night with the hubby-- I put on my sexy size 12 dress and a pair of heels and we were off.
Started at the bar portion of one of the "fancy-pants" restaurants we like. I had two glasses of wine there and ordered the scallops-on-half shell from the appetizer menu for dinner. There were three, they were amazing, and I was appropriately full.
Problem came later-- because apparently, three small scallops is not enough food to counter-act 5 glasses of wine.
After dinner, we went to the symphony (loved!). While there, I drank two more glasses of wine. It should be noted that the second of those was against my better judgment but at the urging of my husband.
Then we went home. And I had ANOTHER glass of wine while we listened to music and chilled.
Saturday I was seriously and completely hung-over ALL DAY. I never threw up, but I had a headache like whoa that three doses of tylenol wouldn't touch. My whole body felt "off" and even though I really wanted to eat (eating greasy food has been my hangover treatment of choice for many years), I wasn't able to eat much. By the end of the day, when it just wasn't getting better, I had some moments of wondering whether 5 glasses of wine on 3 scallops had somehow managed to damage my stomach.
Sunday I was fine, thank goodness.
Today on the scale, I dipped my toe into the 180's (189.6). I would really like to see 185 by the 15th, but I'll need to do a better job with my eating if I do want to see that. I also need to do better with my vitamins-- my blood work had me barely in the good range for Vitamin D and low on B12.
Hope you all had a great weekend.
