Change the Channel

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

So, I don't have time for a real update right now because I am up to my eyeballs in MCAT studying (3 days! AHHHH!) but I needed to share this conversation that I had with my best friend, Victoria, today. I had mentioned that I was really glad that I was almost finished with this course of prednisone that I have been taking for the recent hand/wrist/elbow arthritis that I've had. Prednisone, if you've never taken it, is a wonderful anti-inflammatory, but it makes you hungry, so I've been feeling like I need to "EAT ALL THE THINGS!" recently. Anyway, that got us onto the topic of eating and dieting in general...

V: I am trying to diet again right now, but I actually gained a half a pound last week. So I decided until after my birthday, all I'm doing is just trying to counterbalance the insanity of eating out so much.

A:
I was down to 136, but prednisone sucks. I'm not trying to do anything until after the honeymoon though, because wine. And also eating out for an entire week, essentially.

V:
I think after my birthday, I'll probably just stop drinking anything for a month. That usually helps. The problem is that on top of the calories from the alcohol itself, I also get major drunk munchies. Or tipsy munchies. Pretty much the second wine hits my lips my body goes "CARBS. NOW. GIVE ME CARBS"

A:
My body is always on that channel. The all carb, all the time, channel. I need to switch to the channel Pam is on. That's the all kale, all the time channel. Girl eats more kale than I think I could eat in my entire life.

V: I need to subscribe to that channel.

A: Me too, but that channel is REALLY boring. It doesn't include things like cheesecake or chocolate.

V: Canceling the carb channel is harder than getting out of a Comcast contract. For about a week, I subscribed to the brussels sprouts channel. I actually could have lasted longer, but my husband reached his limit.


A: I am trying to watch more of the salad channel, but I think something is wrong because it keeps switching back to the Bread and Pasta channel.

V: We have faulty remote controls.

A: We do, can we trade them in?

V: Have you been to the cable store before? I don't want to go there.

A: True. That is a circle of hell that Dante forgot. I think we need parental controls!

V: OMG, that's it! I wish I could just block out carbs from the hours of like, 6pm-8am, lol. Or put a PIN on it, that is set by someone reliable and not easily susceptible to torture... because I will waterboard someone for access to potato chips.

And that, ladies and gents, is why V is one of my best friends.

Back to studying!
