Oh sure - I've PIGGED OUT before, but nothing can compare to the caloric intake of yesterday's Thanksgiving feast. I went to a dear friends home for an amazing meal, and the food just kept coming and coming - so of course I kept eating and eating. Everything was homemade and I had to sample everything multiple times.
I kept hearing 'where do you put all of this food?', or the classic 'do you have hollow leg?'. I couldn't help it - besides all of the traditional dishes there was also Beef Wellington, Chipotle Sweet Potatoes, Bernaise sauce, Pumpkin/Cranberry/Fig Pie.....omg - I think I'm getting hungry again just thinking about it.
This stuff works great!
I'm guessing that I ate at least about 8,000 CALORIES over the 6 hour feast. I was so uncomfortable that by bedtime I swore I would never eat so much again (yeah, like that's going tostick). Ugggh, why do we do this to ourselves at the holidays? It's both enjoyable and miserable.
This morning was painful as I did a 1.5 hour workout while sipping YOGI Detox Tea. I'm trying to get rid of the Piggy Pants feeling but it seems to be lingering around. I normally wouldn't care - but I have some awesome dresses I need to squeeze into for my upcoming Palm Springs bash.
Today I'm surviving on low sugar protein shakes, egg whites, arugula/tuna salad and anything else low protein. Did you overeat too? Please tell me about it so I feel better.
