Yesterday evening was at a mall in the evening. I was near McDonalds and saw a few people walking past enjoying the sundae cone. Then somehow the memory of my colleague telling me that McDonalds sundae is absolutely his favourite. He loves it even more than any Baskin Robbins or Walls ice cream.
With all this temptation making themselves known in my mind, I decided to give in to my craving and so we got ourselves a sundae cone each. My came with chocolate toppings. Yum yum- the guilt was reduced coz I know I had been working out in the gym. I even stayed up later than usual coz I do not want to eat the sundae and go straight to sleep.
So I thought- end of the story.
Then this morning when I woke up….. what’s that !#$%@!@$@* pain on my face? I was suffering from some kind of allergy- I know it coz the pain comes from under my skin. When my face touches pipe water, it hurts. When I tried to wash it with cleanser, it hurts. Part of my arms and face was itchy and paining at the same time. When I went out to get myself some stuff, I felt slightly sluggish. This was what the little innocent &$%!! sundae did to me. I am so going to remember this….
Then in the afternoon, I finally managed to squeeze some exercise in. Halfway through, I was sweating profusely and the pain dissapeared. I felt so much better. As my grandmother and an aunt from my mom’s side had diabetic, I believe sugar has a moderate negative effect on my insulin levels and my health.
So the next time you are suffering from some ill affects of a big feast or some rich sugar intake, do some yoga, followed by cardio the next day. It will remove the “hangover”.
