I am so glad I didn't over indulge over Christmas. I have to be so carefull about what I eat, winter stodge feels like a lump of lead inside me, then it gurgles it's way through my innards giving me a painfull bloated feeling. That's why I kept my shopping to a minimum, and didn't buy anything too exotic.
But.......I let my guard down. Last night I didn't sleep very well. I had a lovely time socialising at my friends house, they made me very welcome. The spread she laid out looked mouth watering, there was so much choice. It was very tempting to throw caution to the wind and pile my plate high, why shouldn't I indulge, it's Christmas.
However, common sense prevailed and I chose a few items which I thought would go down nicely with a couple of glasses of wine. Salad, a few prawns, couple of pieces of posh cheese, a pickled onion, fine so far. Then a buttered white bread roll, big mistake, white bread is like cotton wool and not good for me, there was no wholemeal :o( I asked Karen which was veggie and she pointed out some little vol-au-vent type thingies, so I took two, and one veggie not sausage roll thingy. A few bread sticks and a spoon of dips on the lettuce, and it looked fine. Not too much just a normal buffet meal.
Pudding was a piece of chocolate sponge cake, well you have to don't you :o) Ok, I own up, I had two pieces of cake. My goodness did I suffer last night. Woke up at 2.30am in agony, feeling like I'd got the rock of Gibralter stuck in my guts. Laid there thinking go away, I'm not getting up, and tried to go back to sleep. After an hour I turned on my side and at last I got some relief, my rock of Gibralter errupted then made it's way through.
I don't like taking medication if my condition is all my own fault. Seems daft to me to stuff your face with the wrong food then take a pill or medicine to relieve the agony. Note to self.....must be more carefull, don't let my eyes do the eating, think before I put something in my mouth. It was the stodge which caused my discomfort, slapped wrist, don't do it again, ha ha.
