Turning Common Wisdom on its Side

Saturday, October 27, 2012

You know the establishment is always saying never go shopping when you are hungry?

What they should really say, is eat until you are stuffed and then waddle your booty in the store.

We didn't order appetizers as we have sometimes done in the past, and though we split some dessert, I could not finish it. What the hey? I was still stuffed (on good food) but stuffed. We stopped at the supermarket even though we knew it was going to be packed due to storm warnings for Hurricane Sandy hitting the East Coast.

I had done the bulk of my shopping earlier. This was just for supplemental stuff. I was so stuffed, I could barely look at the shelves. I wanted no part of anything dairy, including frozen things that always come ride home in my cart. I got 3 Larabars, some watermelon and some soap.

Walking around the store also helped to clear that stuffed to the gills feeling which was good. I felt way better belly-wise. I know my c=food choices today were completely fine but I definitely overate. Still, it was a GOOD shopping trip as a result.

Hope everyone is doing great, sparkies!!! If Sandy is headed you way also, batten down the hatches!

    We're waiting for the storm in Virginia, too. I tried to buy things that I could fix on a gas stove if the power goes out. I didn't want to fill the refrigerator and then lose it through a power outage.

    I am just no good at turning down food even when I'm full. I almost always will keep eating. For me to leave food on the plate, especially at a restaurant, is unusual. Hope Sandy will be kind- you're in my thoughts.

    Sandy is coming - I live in NY, but inland. I also had to run to the store yesterday and I hate shopping with so many people. Stay safe

    I love the " eat until you are stuffed and then waddle your booty in the store." That is such good advise!!!! Eat a bunch of healthy stuff and then go.

    Such a benign name for a trouble maker. Sandy... I'm glad you had a good day. I totally understand the overly full feeling even though it fit into the plan. I had that kind of evening. Still happy about the day in general. It's just one more day and tomorrow.. hopefully, there will be another one.

    Hope you don't have any damage from Sandy. I live in SC so I know how these storms are. God bless you. It is good to eat before shopping. You won't buy things on the fly like when we are hungry. Good job!

    I see Sandy has been downgraded to a category 1. Big alarms over nothing. Glad you had a good day!
