I am sitting here in a total food coma, really I am. Words are not flowing from these fingers because I am so totally distracted with the feeling of fullness I am experiencing. Its sad, I swear I did not over eat, one plate, one measly plate but apparently one is more than enough.
Food Coma equals Thanksgiving, really it always ends this way, I swear I will not overindulge but it happens, every time…… why oh why does it happen. To make matters worse I then suffer from really bad heartburn and indigestion because I have IBS and my system does not like gravy but I do.
Why are the best things in life the things we should avoid? Stuffing, gravy and sugar pie I am pretty sure they do not love me the way I love them. Really I know I should have broken up with them long ago but its been such a long term relationship I am not sure what life would be without them.
Rich, decadent foods are like bad boyfriends, we really know that they do not belong in our lives but we have such a hard time letting them go. We forget how awful they can be and then bham once again at that special dinner they prove they are really not nice. They react badly and make you wonder whatever did you see in them.
Bad boyfriend logic doesn’t always work though, yes we know we are better off without them but just like the breakup moment with the BF, we doubt ourselves and think But I need them, the meal just seems incomplete without the badness. Sage advise often offered does not work in this case either, there is someone better for you doesn’t work, what ever can. replace gravy and stuffing?
People just don’t understand what you see in them, why you continue to let them wreck your life but you just keep telling yourself oh that one dinner is so worth the aggravation for one night. Actually you forget how bad it is until the meal is over and then you remember and tell yourself NO more, I can do without these bad boys and then Christmas hits and you forget again.
