Ski Diva Extraordinaire
In summer I go to the mountains as much as I can but not as much as I do in winter. When I'm at home, I sit around in the a/c and bitch about the heat. And usually gain 5 lb.
I know that feeling. It kills my appetite for like 12 hours, maybe a day. 2nd day, I can still be throwing up but my appetite comes back (in force) before the nausea goes away. It's so, so wrong.
When I was a kid, we rarely had junk food in the house. Whenever we were sick, or recovering from a dental visit, mom bought us cheeseburgers from a fast food joint called "Harvey's."When DH gets sick in any way, he doesn't move from the bed for days at a time and consumes nothing but small amounts of Gatorade. I don't think he quite believes that I'm sick because I tend to wander from room to room and definitely still eat no matter how ill I am.
Exercise kills my appetite (immediately, at least, not the long term). DD actually eats more when she is sick.
I don't think I gain summer weight because I am eating that much more, but I do think I burn calories faster in the cold. I also like to experiment with cocktails in summer, and I'm sure that doesn't help. Winter, just give me a Manhattan, a beer, or red wine, and I'm good. Summer, I get out the herbs and the fruits and the muddler and start going crazy.
Swimming just makes me want to eat everything almost as soon as I'm finished swimming. No other exercise really does that.
Oh my gosh! That is so me! The whole menu is planned in the morning! I am a foodie!
