Boooooo . . . After some gustatory celebration in honor my birthday, I awoke at 2:50 a.m. with searing pain from acid reflux. I should have seen this coming. My birthday pleasures included Indian food, movie theater popcorn, sea salt caramels and chocolate macarons.
Why do I do this to myself? Why is my memory so short?
Acid reflux was one of the reasons I started down the path to health and I have it largely under control. It really only strikes when I eat a large volume of highly acidic, rich or spicy foods as I did yesterday.
So, it is back on the straight and narrow for me. My motivation this week will be health first, weight loss second. I want to look my best but more importantly, I want to feel my best as often as possible.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes, y'all!
Nothing says "hella old" quite like waking up sick from "excessive birthday celebration" when all you did to celebrate was lunch and a movie!
