Monday Weigh-in #4
This week (although good on paper) was a rough one for me. I discovered (or finally surrendered to the fact) that I have developed an allergy to strawberries. About a year and half ago I started noticing that when I ate strawberries, bad things happened. Without going into great detail, let’s just say that I don’t digest them very well. But I kept eating them because it was a rare treat (strawberry shortcake, etc.).
Well, enter last week when I bought fresh, red strawberries, thinking, “oh these will be great with my morning yogurt!” I took a serving to work with me on Tuesday morning. And they were… oh so delightful. But Tuesday night came and it was a bad, bad night. So bad that I am still experiencing some of the consequence. Almost a week later. Yikes.
Has anyone here developed a strange allergy like this?
I’ll be sticking to grapes, pears and apples from now on.
Here’s my week’s numbers…
