So how was it? The Easter Indulgence aftermath.
Kyle: oh man. It was everything I imagined and more. It was called Peanut Butter Heaven or something. It was crushed Oreos, pudding, Reese’s and whipped cream. It was amazing. I had 4 servings! Melissa said no bringing it home. So it was no holds barred. I went all in.
Melissa: I felt pretty hesitant about eating this treat. I wasn’t nearly as amped up as Kyle. I had 2 burritos at lunch and was pretty full from that. I decided to start with a small piece. Maybe like 3 or 4 bites. It was pretty good and I was happy with that. We went for a family walk and when we got back there was still about 4 pieces of heaven left. Kyle immediately went to the fridge and dug in. I wasn’t sure. I kind of wanted some more but I would have saved it for another day. I had already decided this thing wasn’t coming home with us so I had another small piece. It was good but honestly I could take it or leave it. As Carol (my mother in law) said, I enjoyed making it more than eating it and honestly I am completely okay with that.
Kyle: I surprised I didn’t get sick. I didn’t eat much lunch because I was saving room for the chocolaty treat. Afterward I was full of dessert and gluttony.
On a positive note Melissa and I went to Starbucks. I got a soy iced coffee. No sweetener. So a grande is only 35 calories and 3g of sugar. I can handle that. Of course I’m back here today so that’s a bit much. I’ll improve.
Melissa: One of the things I missed the most was Starbucks. We went on church after Easter service and I got my normal drink- iced coffee with soy and vanilla but I cut the sugar in half by only getting 2 pumps of syrup as opposed to the normal 4. This is a doable change for me. I can’t handle the iced coffee straight, it tastes so bitter to me. A little liquid sugar really serves to cut that sweetness for me. All was good, but then I decided to get another iced coffee on Monday. In my defense, I was supposed to be meeting a friend to pick something up at a Starbucks but she ended up cancelling. I was already there so I decided to get another drink. This one didn’t sit so well with me.
Before I could even get home, my stomach started to ache and I had to dash to the bathroom. It really felt very connected to the coffee I had just sucked down. I kind of feel like the universe was giving me a cosmic warning. My new plan is to stick to one coffee a week from now on and pray my system can handle it.
