42- Stupid taste buds!

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Between stress and being sick, nothing tastes right to me. Nothing is appealing and to me, there isn't much worse than eating something with no taste at all. I know I need to eat, so I do, but UGH! I just don't want to eat not being able to taste anything!

I gave up soda Mon-Sat, but since I can't taste anything, my soda give up is on halt. The bubbles feel good on my throat so I've been drinking a lot of ginerale and colas as well as water.

I tried to bribe my taste buds with delicious chinese and pizza, but nope. My buds weren't having it. I guess it makes eating healthy easier since there's no point in spending calories on calorie laden yumminess that I can't taste!

On to another note...
My husband's great-grammie passed away this week and we have her services tonight and tomorrow. I know these days are going to be a challenge for me as I am an emotional eater (I eat for and with EVERY emotion) and I am also a social eater. If you put me in a social environment with food, and then *gasp* throw in any kind of emotion... I am ALL over the food. Devoured!

I am hoping that my tastebuds acting oh so mean, that it will actually help me eat less and not go over my calorie ranges. I guess there really is a silver lining to everything...although I do wonder, why silver? Why not gold? Or platinum?

    Sorry to hear about your loss. Maybe the taste bud issue will be a blessing in disguise and will keep you from overeating though.

    John Milton coined the phrase 'silver lining' in Comus: A Mask Presented at Ludlow Castle, 1634

    I see ye visibly, and now believe
    That he, the Supreme Good, to whom all things ill
    Are but as slavish officers of vengeance,
    Would send a glistering guardian, if need were
    To keep my life and honour unassailed.
    Was I deceived, or did a sable cloud
    Turn forth her silver lining on the night?
    I did not err; there does a sable cloud
    Turn forth her silver lining on the night,
    And casts a gleam over this tufted grove.

    Sorry to hear about your husband's loss.

    I guess if there was ever a good time for you to be sick it would be now...
