That was most certainly not the whoosh I was looking for...
Last night I wanted a Greek-style frappe, but we're out of evap milk because I drank it neat on Sunday. So, I thought a coconut milk frappe sounded fabbo. Then, in the kitchen, I began worrying that I'd just drink or waste the coconut milk - rather extravagant to open a tin just for a splash in a drink. So, no worries, I'll mix coconut oil with my coffee granules. Boiled the kettle to have enough hot water to dissolve granules and oil - with the thought that ice would cool it down - but then in the process remembered that cool oil would be solid and in the end made myself a strange hot drink instead: just granules, water, oil. It was okayish, but not particularly pleasurable. The oil stayed with me somehow and I began to feel a bit queer.
Two hours later? Total evacuation of my digestive tract. Shivering, goosebumps and more liquid pouring out of me than I thought possible.
Of course, I had read others' shocked accounts of accidental CO OD, but it never occurred to me that the same amount (maybe it was fractionally more, but not by much) of CO that I have been adding to my double espresso in the morning would have such dire results when added to instant coffee (and without milk, but on top of food).
Live and learn.
I'm working from home today, which makes fasting pretty much out of the question, but we'll see how we go.
B: coffee, semi-skimmed milk NO COCONUT OIL
L: cauli and stilton soup; could have fasted - wasn't super hungry - but it's in the fridge and good eatings so I did
D: man and boy are going to a barbie, but I've cried off so that I can sew/please myself... and that turns out to be a little bit of salsa, a little bit of coconut milk and some tuna mayo
Way up on the calories today. Also, itching to get a bottle of wine for the first time in two weeks. Hmmm.
