Death by Tuna Casserole

I certainly pushed yesterday’s workout to the very limits and of course I am paying for it this morning with sore muscles and joints. But today is Sunday and a day of rest which will give me plenty of time to rest my weary bones. I will continue to feed my body the protein it needs during the course of the day and keep those muscles strong. I will also continue taking the 5 grams of creatine needed to reach a point of complete load after 30 days.

I didn’t mention this earlier but with taking creatine I had two choices. I could have taken 25 grams per day for 7 days and then reduce it to 5 grams, or simply take 5 grams per day for 30 days to reach full load. I chose the second as too much creatine at one time causes digestion problems and that is one thing I certainly want to avoid.

tuna-casseroleWe ended up eating left over tuna casserole for dinner last night and making the choice to finish up all of the leftovers rather than throwing them out I ended up eating way too many carbs late in the day. I woke up in the middle of the night and my left foot felt very itchy and I knew that there might be something wrong. After testing my sugar this morning I quickly discovered that there was definitely something wrong as I was staring down at the number 150 on my test meter. Yea, sometimes it is OK to throw food out rather than gorging yourself on it. I certainly don’t want to see “Cause of Death – Too much Tuna Casserole” on my death certificate.

  1. I know exactly where you are coming from Bill, I hate throwing out food but am learning that weather I eat it of toss it, the outcome is the same, it is gone.
