so, like every Tuesday, we had birthday cake in the sales meeting today. I usually refrain from eating this 11am dessert overload but today was different: the birthday cake was for me. so, although my trainer would say “don’t eat the cake. why would you punish yourself on a day of celebration?” I felt the need to try it. It was, after all, my favorite….red velvet.
so I ate a piece of the cake, and i have recently renamed this experience “red velvet torture.”
since i really don’t consume sugar on a regular basis, this cake affected me hard. may sound hard to believe but shortly after eating the cake i had a pounding headache and really felt like punching someone in the face. for real. no lie. after doing a bit of research i learned that sugar crashing and anger go hand in hand. if you know me, you know that i rarely get angry. so this was an unpleasant experience. this person seemed to have the same reaction to cookies.
so, being the extreme girl that i am, and considering i was experiencing irrational, sugar-induced insanity, i decided that i had hypoglycemia, and read the following:
“In older children and adults, moderately severe hypoglycemia can resemble mania, mental illness, drug intoxication, or drunkenness.”
sugar, we’re goin down.
