Is it possible to eat so much that your stomach starts to displace your internal organs?
Normally, I consider myself a discerning glutton but this holiday season has been filled with eating on a scale unheard of until about 10 days ago (right when I wanted to pick up working out on a consistent basis again). Normally I don’t eat during night shifts but when I worked straight nights during Christmas, I was powerless to resist the goodies of our annual Christmas potluck. I was deliriously happy when I realized that the majority of my coworkers were amazing cooks on the side! Then I was stuffed silly by my elderly relatives as soon as I got home from work. Tonight is not going to be any different. In fact, as I write this post, I have 3 beef dishes on the stove and some baklava in the oven for a dinner party tonight. The point of this post? I’m far too stuffed to write anything relevant to nursing so I’ll just raise a glass to great food shared with great company, holiday shifts that were uneventful and let me have a chance to actually get to talk to my coworkers and wish you all a very happy and healthy new year!
