How did this happen? Tuesday I had all-day meetings plus evening class. I ate a good breakfast at home, and that was the only decent food I had all day. We were having lunch at one of our meetings, and our school usually provides pretty decent meals, so I didn't worry.
I had forgotten that one of our school's donors had provided pizza for the lunch. And it was greasy, deep-dish pizza. There was salad, but by the time I got to it it was all gone, so there was no food other than pizza and cookies. I had promised my class I would go out with them since it was our last class, and it was a bar, so not a lot of good options there either. Instead of eating the pizza, I should have waited and gone off-campus, but I didn't really have time. I had a bunch of grading to do. The only good thing I did all day was drink a ton of water, since I was sitting at tables with pitchers and cups all day. I think the next time we have one of these all-day things, I'm going to pack a lunch. Especially if there's a chance of a repeat of that meal.
Two restaurant meals in one day did not do good things to my body. I woke up feeling like I had chewed on a salt lick, and I didn't want breakfast. Just packing my husband's lunch made my stomach lurch. I didn't eat until after my Spin class, around 11:30, and I had a very clean, veggie-filled meal. And then I really wasn't hungry for the rest of the day. I felt awful, in fact. I forced myself to have something small when I got home from class because I thought I should.
I didn't really want breakfast this morning either. So either I have some kind of bug, or food poisoning, or my body is just really not happy about the way it was treated on Tuesday. I had some yogurt with blueberries for breakfast in the hopes of getting some good bugs into my system in case the pizza killed them off.
The nice thing is that I am done with teaching for a couple of weeks. I need to get my syllabus out before I leave for D.C., and I am going to try to get my grades done if I can, too. I don't want to take my laptop with me if I can avoid it, and I can't really grade on my iPad.
