Eating Till Our Tummies Hurt Again!

Last night, the little, spoiled girl inside of me ask to be taken out to dinner -- again. Bret and I went to Native Foods, had large yummy dinners!

Soul Bowl:
Southern fried Native chicken with hearty red beans and brown rice, steamed veggies, and kale; dressed with ranch and barbeque sauce and served with homemade cornbread!

Super Italian Meatball Sub
Native Sausage Seitan meatballs, marinara sauce, caramelized onions, roasted sweet peppers, pumpkin seed pesto, ranch dressing and Native Parmesan on a warm grilled baguette!

Mmm, and then for dessert we picked up a bag of vegan cookies at Trader Joe's.  (Wow, I am so predictable!) 

Once at home, sat down in front of the TV and popped in The U.S. vs. John Lennon documentary devoured our cookies and sipped on some chamomile tea. 

After the movie I hugged Bret and I cried on his shoulder....The movie moved me. John Lennon was killed on December 8th, 1980...about 2-3 weeks from my conception (I was born on August 18, 1981). His life, his talent, his love for Yoko and people, his words and impact he had on the world have shaped who I am today. (I'll write about John another day). 

By 10:30pm I was still so full from all the food I ate, I hated it! Bret and I just complained to each other that our tummies hurt and that we weren't going to combine eating out and eating cookies again! I was too full and not sleepy, so began to fold some clean laundry that had been waiting for a couple of days and I asked Bret to email me....Here it is:

You told me to write this:

Tonight's food and the cookies were just too much that your stomach still at this time couldn't digest it.  You've been eating too much fat, sodium, and sugar all in less than two hours and that's just too much.

Remember this feeling and how you don't want to feel it again.  It's not worth all this hard work (all your exercise and your green smoothies) to mess up by eating poorly (emotional eating).


 Before I reach out for more cookies after dinner, I'll do my best to remember this email. I'll remember the feeling I feel, I'll remember my goals and Bret and I will keep each other accountable to not overeat. Lesson learned together today.
