PSA and Weekend Ramblings
Eat Fiber One bars at your own risk!
(warning, TMI alert)
I bought these with the expectation of having a filling snack while satisfying my sweet tooth. I was impressed by the 9 grams of fiber and they tasted really good. I thought it was even better that I only had to sacrifice 2 Weight Watcher points on this almost candy bar like treat.
All was well until about an hour later.....then the stomach pain started. It got so bad that I was almost doubled over. Then I realized it was GAS pain. My stomach was making noises I have never heard before and they were LOUD. My co-workers were commenting on how they could hear the rumblings. I could actually feel the gas bubble move through my intestines. The pain subsided but only to leave me with 2 days of the worst flatulence. I put Chubby Hubby to shame with the noises I could produce. Normally I am immature enough to think a good fart story is funny but this was over the top even for me. Chubby Hubby had a similar issue after consuming these. Please consider yourself warned. I wonder what would happen if someone had the guts to eat 2 in one day. Yowsa!
Weekend Wrap Up
Weight Watcher's weigh in was a joke this week! I was up 3.8lbs. Funny I am back down to my current week's weight as of today. Sometimes I really hate having to weigh in at night. I do believe the candy and the salt consumption played a role in some of the gain. Thankfully it didn't "stick", at least a few glasses of water was enough to flush it back out. I really want to do well this week so I am eating as clean as possible.
I broke it to my husband that I picked out paint and that we (by WE, I mean HE) will be painting very soon. Please note, I am always willing to help but I have been banned from painting in this house due to my lack of patience. Of course with the paint, I have picked out a couple of new accent pieces that would make the room complete. Don't you love how projects just snowball?
I am so happy the we are in the last week of February. I am in the peak of my winter funk. Just as the weather was getting "nicer" we got a bunch of snow and it got cold again. Usually by April, things start to get tolerable and going outside to run is much much more enjoyable. I hate wishing time away, but I wish Spring would come now.
I have a ton of catching up to do....230 posts to be exact. I have to say I LOVE Google Reader. I can't believe that it took me so long to discover it.
