My Tummy Hurts

Lying Down with a Stomach AcheI have an upset stomach and want to just curl up on the couch in a fetal position – in fact, that’s exactly what I’m going to do when I finish writing this and doing my daily inventory. And take some Tums.

I’ve eaten very off-program this weekend and my system is paying for it right now. It’s highly unlikely that I’m going to go out and buy another tub of chocolate frosting to use to dip apple slices – that was yesterday’s stupidity. I knew it was a bad idea even as I did it and think I was “inspired” by watching eleventy million Pizza Hut commercials for pizza slices with dipping sauce. I didn’t want THAT but the idea of having apples and chocolate sounded yummy. And it was good but it was too much and I knew with every dip that it was getting worse and worse.

There were no trips to the gym this weekend, just trips in the car to go spend money. Sigh. I needed to get curtains for my wide windows to help block out light and insulate in the winter (I’ve been through too many New England winters not to know that this will be necessary) and with the parents coming to visit in 2 weeks, I need to take care of the light blocking fast. Curtains meant curtain rods and the price mounts. And another trip to Bed Bath and Beyond yielded a dust buster thing purchased with the 20% off coupon.

My big accomplishment was working on a letter of recommendation for someone up for promotion at her library. I had agreed to review her work and write something but finding time to do it during the work week just didn’t happen. The letter wasn’t hard to write since I actually believe what I was writing and I enjoyed weighing words to find exactly what I wanted to say. Plus I learned how to print envelopes so I’m feeling accomplished.

Mostly, though, I have a stomach ache. Tomorrow I’m back to balanced normal healthy options. My tummy is much happier when I do that and deviating just reminds me that there are consequences to eating rich things. I used to be able to do this often without a problem but I’m not that person anymore.
