I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter. My day started at 6:30 am Sunrise Service with my sister. It was a pretty service and a great way to start the day. We came home and cooked breakfast and I was poolside by 11:30. I wanted to relax this weekend and that is exactly what I did.
Oh, wait…you think I forgot that I could eat chocolate? You wondered why that wasn’t the first thing I mentioned, right? Well. After spending the afternoon dry-heaving in bushes…I am back to my Lenten resolution…
I am not going to lie. I ate cadbury mini eggs at 6 am on the way to church. Gross, I know but it is kinda a family tradition. Allison and I love these and we usually eat them together every Easter. Okay, so maybe not always at 6am but I NEEDED chocolate today. It had been 40 days! Well, after breakfast I came home and took the desserts that I had in the freezer out to thaw to enjoy later (I went to a dessert tasting fundraiser a few weeks ago and took mine home to enjoy on this day). They thawed quickly. I ate carrot cake and chocolate cheesecake and then a cookie and maybe some more mini eggs. This was basically my lunch. To be honest, I got so grossed out by my eating that I couldn’t even finish the cakes and threw them away. But the damage was already done. I felt ill.
I was supposed to meet my friend Holly this afternoon for a quick 4 mile run. You can imagine how pretty that was. Hint-the bushes. I felt sick the whole run. About a mile in we had to stop so that I could try and relieve myself. I managed to finish the run but my stomach starting cramping a block or two from home and we had to walk.
Needless to say, I think I am back to my Lenten ways. Or at least moderation. MUCH MORE moderation. I told y’all I didn’t have self control. This is a prime example. I should’ve thought about the fact that my body hasn’t had this much sugar in 40 days. Dumb. I’m for real gonna stick to sweets only twice a week. And that is IF I am in the mood for them. I’m not just eating them because I can anymore. Bleh.
Again, other than that, a great day. And the real reason for this holiday shouldn’t be forgotten.
Oh yeah…one week from now I will have completed marathon #2. WOOHOO!!
