That Time I Ate Popeyes Chicken & Was Up All Night

Hey Loveys,

I hope you're weekend is off to a fantastic start! I can't believe tomorrow is already Wednesday... wow! Have you been smiling a lot this week? I hope so :).

I have a couple of things to touch on today - and first off I want to give a big THANK YOU to a friend of mine, Dr. Lista, who is a plastic surgeon in the Toronto area who actually has his own skin care line called Miracle 10. Today he sent me a starter pack for Miracle 10 so I can test it out after hearing/seeing me complain about my break outs. I'm SO EXCITED to try it!! He claims that it will make my skin sooo much better than what I use now (Proactiv) and I can't even wait to start using this product. My skin has always been a sore spot for me because I'm really prone to acne and my skin is normally really oily and shiny, so I'm excited to see if something like this helps me out and evens out my skin! Check it - I even snapped a selfie in the car when I got it!


Obviously I haven't started using it yet, and I will write more about it once I get into it (so stay tuned!) but if you want to check out the whole line for yourself (it's customizable to your own skin type) click here and it will take you to their "online boutique"! Whoop!! This totally made my whole week. I'm so excited.. if you can't tell. :)

Ok - so now I have some not so fun confessing to do.

Last night I was a lazy bum. I was pooped when C picked me up from work... and we had to stop on the way home so C could get the oil changed in the car. He was planning on working out last night and I was going to rest and cook up a healthy salmon dinner. The place we got our oil changed (I will refrain from naming names) took FOREVER and I was so cranky by the time we got out of there, and so was C, that we decided to basically say "eff it" and we picked up Popeye's Chicken for dinner.

I got a meal of chicken tenders (their version of chicken fingers) as well as a biscuit (drool) and their french fries. I totally devoured the whole meal and you know... it wasn't that good by the time we got everything home. It was cold(er), the fries weren't crispy and the chicken was kind of chewy.. but alas, I still ate the whole thing. Oh.. and I had a spicy ranch dipping sauce for my chicken.

Oy.. ok... I know what you're thinking. REALLY SARAH!?!?! WHAT ARE YOU THIIIIIIIINKING!?!?! and you're totally right? What the eff was I thinking? I could have easily came home and just fried up a couple of salmon fillets and baked some kale... but no. And I paid the price. I was unbelievably gassy the whole night.. my stomach bloated... and I woke up at 2am with some serious stomach cramps and all day today my tummy has been upset.

It's no secret that what I ate is literally everything I always avoid eating. I am totally to blame for feeling like a bag of ass after eating such food... but it goes to show how your body will tell you when you put something into it that is obviously not supposed to be there.... basically it gets rid of it as quickly as it can. Le sigh. I found that out first hand in the middle of the night (if you know what I mean). I tried to Google what it is in Popeyes Chicken to see if I could find an ingredient list but obviously that stuff is kept under pretty tight wraps and there's a lot of people trying to duplicate it (it is reeeeally delicious when it's fresh, damnit!). Whatever it is, ugh... it's so not meant to be digested. It's probably why I feel lethargic today.

With that being said - tonight I'm not being lazy and I will be making the salmon and kale that I should have made last night. It's going to be delicious.

Goodness.
Badness. Sorry Popeyes.
I don't know how people eat such things all the time. I think I'm now just ranting about it but whatever. It's my blog and I'll do what I want lol.

Q: What's 1 food that you SOOO love but know it makes you feel like ass?
Q: When's the last time you actually ate said food?

  3. I am probably in denial about the foods that make me feel like ass - Because the foods I love are so healthy, yet I probably just over eat, which causes me to feel like I wanna die... Yep, spaghetti squash definitely does that to me sometimes!!! WOMP WOMP!

    But then again, even the stuff my stomach does like... Sometimes wrecks havoc! As my mother calls me: I am a medical enigma!

  4. ohhhhh, lady! I know that awful feeling! I went on a cruise to the bahamas this fall and totally YOLOed the entire time. my stomach definitely paid for it in the bloat department, and I just felt nasty!! that's the feeling I remember now anytime I think about doing that again! on the plane home my pants seriously felt like they were going to pop off and major constipation. ICK!! but alas, we live and we learn!! :o)

  7. Fried chicken is my stress food. I don't eat it often luckily (I was once told you could eat KFC once a year if you led an otherwise perfectly healthy life), but if you see me in a Mary Brown's, Popeye's, Church's, or KFC, odds are that life is crushing me under it's boot heels...
