Sugar Hangover Today

I can’t seem to get it together to post more than every couple of weeks these days. I’ve been a bit overwhelmed by work and life lately, and that always makes it harder. I’m struggling through a massive sugar hangover today so this will be a short post.

I ate a ridiculous amount of Halloween candy last night, and I ALSO made a pumpkin pie (from a real pumpkin!) for the first time with real cream from the good dairy, whipped to pillowy goodness. It was delicious, but today, I feel like dog doo. When I woke up this morning, I was exhausted and my head ached like I had one too many glasses of wine last night. Ugh.

But tomorrow is a new day! And I’ve spent today trying to catch up on what all of my beautiful WordPress friends are up to. I will try to post more frequently (and with more substance) in the coming weeks. Now, though, I think I need to go eat my weight in kale and broccoli. 🙂

Sending love!

xoxo

  1. Hey Leafy! I have this feeling the morning after too much sugar too! I think I must have always felt it but my hangovers drowned it out!!! Who knew sugar had such a physical effect on our bodies?

    I can’t post more than every few weeks. I don’t have enough creativity in my brain. But I like to read and comment so I figure that’s ok! Lovely to hear from you.

  2. Day 86 Congrats!! I love Halloween, but the candy (oh yeah and drinking…) always makes me feel like crap. Hoping someday I will *only* have a sugar hang over. Hope you feel better after a day of kale. I fasted a lot of the day and am SO ready for an early sober bedtime.

  3. yeah, sugar…double edged sword that one. Many newly sober people i’ve met say their first year they gained weight/ quadrupled their sugar intake. And what can you say really? Giving up alcohol is such a tough job, i don’t condemn anyone for taking comfort where they can- whether its daily or only on occasions like this. For sure i had a few cookies and some chocolate. I gained weight as well even though i mainly changed my diet for the better ( oddball me) . I simply ate more. But sugar…indeed can make you feel just awful when one overindulges. rest up, detox and be well! hugs!

  4. YAY LEAFY IS BACK ❤ 🙂 "whipped to pillowy goodness" wowowowowow nomnomnom I AM DROOLING right now 🙂 What a beautiful expression. I'm also picturing myself taking a nap on the pie, which makes no sense lol. Anywayyyy, It's ok to go overboard on Halloween, that's what it's for ! And your body knows how to adjust because it's telling you what it needs today 🙂 I might make a pumpkin pie too, I've never tried ! Yesterday I visited my parents, who make pumpkin soup and served INSIDE a carves pumpkin, it was awesome ! xxx Anne ❤

  5. Your pumpkin pie does sound good! There was a lot of candy floating around on Halloween, that’s for sure. You’ll feel better once it’s out of your system. Sugar makes me feel weird too! I’ve been mostly staying away but gave myself a pass the past few days because my husband made amazing brownies! And yes … it feels like everybody is eating sugar this time of year. There are worse things we could be doing. I’m sure you will find the balance that’s right for you!

  6. Omg your pumpkin pie sounds amazing. I’ve actual never had one, but can just imagine it. Happy day 83, not long until 100s 🥳🥳🥳. I’m trying to be good in November and reduce the refined sugar intake. I get bad sugar hangovers too, they’re horrible, really feel for you ♡♡♡

  7. Good to hear from you! I’ve been eating like crap lately… I’m a mindless sugar zombie with the pending election, my daughter getting a cold (which is highly stressful these days and the sheer abundance of it around the house. Now I’m off to make healthy pumpkin muffins with almond flour and maple syrup…but your pie sounds much better. Hang in there and be kind to yourself. Awesome on the 86 days! 💕
