Day 16 of 365 blog: Gluttony

pretty sorel horse

Day 16 of my 365 day blog challenge! I am going to talk about GLUTTONY!!! In other words, greediness, overeating, gourmandizing, or piggishness! We are entering the season for gluttony! Thanksgiving and Christmas as well as New Years and Super Bowl, which, by the way, might as well be a holiday! I have heard that the average person ingests between 3000 and 5000 calories during our Thanksgiving dinner! Wow, I guess that means I need to work out 2 – 3 times harder to work those calories off!!! When I eat Thanksgiving dinner I think I have to eat a little bit of everything on the table!!! We don’t want to disappoint Aunt Marge by not eating her jello salad or her pecan pie!!! The truth is we should keep in mind that our over indulgences are OK every once in a while, but not on a consistent basis. Everything in moderation as they say! We as a society are greedy as a whole, not just food but THINGS! Take Christmas for example, I think a lot of us get carried away with gifts!!! The number of gifts given does not equate with how much you love someone!! Now that I am older I don’t want for much and Christmas is for the “little ones” anyway, right?! Why not give to those that do not have anything instead? Think about it this Thanksgiving when you take that second helping of dressing!!! Happy turkey day to you! Signing off for now!
