Bear with me for a moment while I quote from a post I made a few days ago:
Insta-food sucks. I end up living off of the stuff when my husband is out of town on business, as he was last week, and it really really sucks. At least the stuff from Trader Joe’s isn’t half bad, but last week I ended up eating stuff from the regular grocery store, and it was so horrid and fat-filled that the very idea of it made me feel nauseous by the end of the week. Yes, that was despite trying to pick my insta-food fairly carefully.
Okay, it hit the point where I finally realized that it’s not normal to feel that nauseous after having fatty foods, and I couldn’t chalk it up to a newfound aversion to unhealthy foods any more. So in one week I go for an ultrasound to find out if I’m having gallstone troubles.
In the meantime, I have to say for anyone else having this problem (since I’ve now read up on it enough to know that there are a lot of people with gallstone trouble out there), that a nice cup of instant miso soup is very settling to the stomach under these circumstances, even when you’ve hit the point where plain oatmeal made with 2% milk is kind of sickeningly fatty (next time I’ll just make it with water).
Well, nothing like having incentive to get healthy, particularly when you have difficulty with self-motivation. I consider this a well-earned kick in the ass from life. Anyway, if you’re wondering why I’m so slow lately about dropping by and commenting on blogs and the like, this is why.
