I have a sensitive stomach. Despite a lifelong knowledge of this issue, I continue to make eating decisions that backfire in a major way. Yesterday was no exception.
It started with a coworker bringing in ice cream cake for another coworkers birthday. The second it came out, I started trying to justify eating some of it. Why not eat some cake? You might ask. Because when I say I have “lactose issues”, it’s a gross understatement.
I sat there staring down the ice cream cake like some kind of pastry rapist, at the same time reminding myself what happened the last time I indulged in some dairy. But alas, my appetite overrode my better judgement and I ended up eating 2 slices.
By the time I arrived home from work, my stomach was furious as me; and I was forced to “handle business” just minutes before Boyfriend or Best Friend strode through the door and announced he wanted to go to happy hour at the bar across the street.
Stomach still grumbling, I agreed to go, but insisted I wasn’t going to drink anything. That lasted about as long as it took me to spot some Three Olives Loopy vodka on the shelf. I knew choosing something so sugary after the cake incident was a recipe for disaster, but I rationalized it by telling myself I’d only have a couple of drinks.
Enter our Brazilian neighbor, who insisted we have a round of Patron to celebrate his daughter coming to visit him in the states. Tequila and I have a history that has landed me in handcuffs, but who was I to say no to one, little celebratory shot?
Upon getting home, I was hungry, and instead of something bland and safe, I proceeded to devour *3* packages of Spicy Chilli flavored Ramen noodles. I went to bed feeling pretty pleased with myself.
Needless to say, this morning has been utter hell and I’ve had to rush to the restroom twice just typing this post, and about five times prior to.
Anyone else want to share their stupid decisions?
