Remember my Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret post? I shared pictures of a one year old binging on birthday cake and the regret that it later caused. Well, last night I had my own binge fest. Much like little Nolan, I also cried. Between the hours of 3pm and 9pm I ate a large serving of lasagna, a fully loaded burrito bowl from Qdoba, 3 large pieces of pizza smothered in goat cheese, and 10 chocolate covered strawberries. I felt like a bottomless pit most of the night. A few minutes after finishing my last chocolate strawberry, I felt a horrible combination of guilt, pain, nausea, and a touch of ecstasy. So here is how my night started:
Come ON, how sweet is he?
Then this happened (after the three huge NY style slices of pizza)…
Which led to this…
Hitting the coma stage:
After admitting to Isaac that I had eaten lasagna and a burrito bowl a few hours earlier, he became worried, and rightfully so! I insisted I was going to barf so he made us go on a walk outside in the 35 degree weather. The photo below is possibly one of the lowest points in my life, I was literally crying. I don’t know if it was more from the guilt of all the calories/saturated fat I had just consumed or the feeling of my food bubbling up into my esophagus because my stomach just didn’t have any more room for it.
Those that know me personally know how hard I have been working at the gym lately. I could not BELIEVE the amount of junk food I had just put into my body. But, everyone needs a cheat day. This cheat day should hold me over for the next month.
Isaac was also crying, from laughing so hard at this entire chain of events. It all happened so quickly. How nice of him to document it, huh? :-p
I went to bed that night realizing that the next morning was going to be brutal.
To my surprise, it really wasn’t that bad! No stomach ache, just a slight guilt hangover.
