Groan, I ate to much

Just call me pig, glutton, fats so, waddles, anything that fits how a stuffed chuck full stretched out belly feels, that would be me about now. I can't even think about food or the fact that I just might ever be hungry again. I am however very thirsty, we had ham instead of turkey today & I ate my fill.
Why is it we think just because it is Thanksgiving that we have to stuff ourselves until it hurts. I think I can answer my own question here, its because it all tastes soooo good that we have to have just one more little taste. Then after about an hour we have to eat dessert of course & not just one but a sample of apple pie, pumpkin pie, brownies, ice cream, cookies, yep there was an abundance of goodies to consume. I read somewhere that one person eats about 3,000-4,000 calories at just one meal on this most thankful day, & that it takes one running for 4 hours to just begin burning off all those calories. Yikes!!! Excuse me while I go get my running shoes on better get started now!!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all, we have so much to be grateful for & our God provides the best!!!!!

Glad you had plenty of good food! There is a solution, you know. If you work, you miss the meal! I had leftover turkey on a bun tonight and am not stuffed. Maybe this is a new diet plan - work all holidays! :)

I came over from Dawn's blog to visit yours. I too ate wayyyyy too much! But I just don't think I can run with all that food in my tummy.

I ate enough to last me for the rest of the week... sooo if you hear me say I am hungry kick me!!

He he he... I'm glad you enjoyed your day and all the good food. I wasn't stuffed because of this diet. I was actually hungry! Usually I'm stuffed though!
