Isnít that a song? Yes I know it is, but in my head itís meaning has nothing to do with the lyrics of Britís song.. NO it has to do with the Christmas party I attended today - CONFESSION TIME!
This was a party with a support grieving group attend every Friday and we are like family. Everyone was to bring a ďheavyĒ appetizer or desert which would serve as food for the evening. I brought store purchase 1/4 oz meatballs bathed in grape jelly and chili sauce. My original intention was grand. I was going to make the meatballs myself, and even make the chili sauce and found a recipe for sugar-free grape jelly too. Ya well all intentions set aside I got LAZY and opted out for the fast way and we all know what that means - more added calories, more added sugar, more added sodium - all the things I have been to watching as I am eating healthy.
Then when attending the party all the other really great (unhealthy) appetizers and you guessed it, I could not, rather I did not control myself as I have preached or wanted myself to do. I ate way more than I needed and now some 3 hours later I feel horrible. Not emotionally but physically! As for the past month tonight I ate more than I could physically handle and now feel like a stuffed pig! And mind you - 3 hours later.
So although itís after 8pm and very cold out I feel compelled to bundle up and walk off some of this discomfort I am feeling. There is no way I can just sit here on the couch and remain feeling like a beached whale!! So my moral is - who did I hurt here? No one but myself! Am I better off because I did what I wanted and not as I knew I should - absolutely NOT! Who is suffering? Only my tummy!!
