So I went to my dad's for dinner, and my cousin and his wife came ... and brought fresh, homemade tortillas to go with the chili. I originally was only going to have a part of one, just to taste it--I've been doing so well with that approach that I didn't think it'd be a problem.

Oh my god, SO GOOD. Sort of chewy and buttery and just delicious. I ended up having a whole one, and it was quite large. But so worth it! Except ... now, a few hours later, I feel like consuming the world. Obviously it caused a blood sugar spike and drop that's now making me hungry. It's also making me crave things that I luckily don't have--like more tortillas, or chocolate.

It was a really nice night; I got to talk to my cousin's wife for hours, which was great since I never really had talked to her before a whole lot. The only downside is that I intended to leave three hours earlier than I did. Not so good when I have class in the morning. I was sort of planning to do some yoga and go to bed early. Instead, it's 1:30 and I'm still wide-awake after driving soda and chatting all night and driving home.

But you know what? It was all worth it. :) I do have a little voice in my head whispering and trying to mentally whip me for eating "too much" carb, but I think it's based on the fact that I'm now experiencing the FAT GIRL MUST FEED syndrome, rather than an irrational guilt over an arbitrary number.
