Too Many Sweets

by Meghann on December 23, 2008

Ughh.. I haven’t even been home for a whole day and I already feel sick from all the sweets. Its a lesson I need to remember for the future.

It all started with my left over muffins I had at lunch. I then stopped at Caitlin’s and indulged in a Super Sexy Gingerbread man.


She gave me some extra cookies to bring home with me. They were so good that I couldn’t resist splitting another one with my Mom.


It was still so good, but I think that was when my belly reached its limit of sweets. I started to feel a little nauseated and had to sit down. Its odd how sensitive my stomach has gotten to sweets in the past year, 2 muffins and 2 cookies did me in. At least the nauseated feeling will still be fresh in my mind when I’m faced with plenty of yummy irresistible treats tomorrow.

After my belly ache started I sat down and read my book. I started to feel better and was craving some actual food, so when my Mom brought some of her hot out of the oven mini quiches I grabbed one from the plate. My camera was in the other room and I was too lazy to get up and grab it.

My Dad made Corn Beef for dinner with Steamed Brussel Sprouts and I had 1/2 of a Baked Sweet Potato on the side.


Corn beef is usually a very fatty, grease meat that is no where close to healthy, but remarkably this piece seemed pretty lean. It was very good and I gobbled the whole plate right up.

After dinner my tummy ache came back which now has me thinking maybe it wasn’t just the sweets. Its cramping pretty bad right now, so much so that I have to lean over when I stand. I’m starting to think that its just very bad cramps, but its still not a fun thing to have. I hope it all subsides before my run tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™

I’m going to take some advil and hope for the best.

Hope your tummy feels better. Caitlin’s baking looks great! Sexy gingerbread man? Heck yes he is ๐Ÿ˜‰ Your parents sound like they are great cooks!

Glad you made it home safely!!

Sorry to hear about the achey stomach … sometimes it is best to do a little overindulging to remind yourself how icky you can feel I guess.

Really weird that I’m eating dinner as I read your post and I looked down at my sweet potato and brussel sprouts and had to do a double take. Great minds!!!

Good luck on tomorrow’s run and feel better ๐Ÿ™‚

I understand! I could really pound it down until I changed my eating in my early 20’s. I remember having one and a half pieces of cake at my bro’s wedding this summer and getting dizzy and sweating.
We are so purified! I hope you feel better in the AM!

Aww I hope your stomach feels better! Thats the worst, but a good night’s sleep and an advil could fix it right up. No worries about your run!

Love the gingerbread man! Im craving holiday cookies so badly ๐Ÿ˜€

Oooh sorry about the belly ache!

11 Cassidy December 23, 2008 at 10:25 pm

Hope you feel better. I have the same problem. Everyone else can seem to eat sweets galore. My brother had 3 cookies for breakfast!!!

12 Melissa S. December 23, 2008 at 10:51 pm

hope we feel better soon. hehe!

I’ve definitely been feeling the sugar overload thing. I want to crank in the fresh foods now. GIMME the veggies!

Hope you’re feeling better after you sleep some of it off!

Hey Meghann…did you ever write a post about what you did to start running? I was just curious if you used any specific method to start running. Thanks!

17 Meghann December 24, 2008 at 2:25 pm

Hi Katie! I haven’t done anything specific towards that yet. I will add your question to the FAQ page after christmas with the answer. ๐Ÿ™‚
