I met a friend for lunch today at a local Italian place, but I was prepared. Or so I thought.
I splurged on calories and got the caesar salad but skipped all the yummy bread they serve, that smells like a garlic heaven. Fast forward about an hour and I am back at my desk and not feeling so great. My stomach has now literally swole up and I have what feels like a child's big red ballon in my tummy.
This is where I was like whoa! I mean how can a salad make me so miserable. I then try and call the restaurant to find out the ingredients of the dressing only to be told (and I quote) "Ummm I'm not sure, it's got like eggs and olives and some other stuff in it". I just said ok, thanks. I won't go into what I was thinking about telling the little girl on the phone.
So its now 6 hours later and I still have a child's big red ballon in my tummy. I had a bowl of Fiber One cereal with almond milk for dinner just to put something in my tummy since I didn't have an afternoon snack and was getting hungry.
I am praying that after church I can get to the gym and burn this big red ballon out.
