The Super Bowl marked a full month of my paleo lifestyle in action. I only cheated once to have ice cream, which has a whole other backstory behind it. So with the Super Bowl, I felt almost obligated to partake in the festivities of glutinous binge eating…BIG MISTAKE!
My buddy had a big Super Bowl party with almost everyone bringing something to share. Some of the spread included paleo friendly food like ribs and chicken wings (I’ll just assume they had paleo friendly sauce). Then there was the typical chips, cocktail hotdogs, cake, dips and everything else with sugar, gluten and make believe ingredients.
By the end of the game, I’d say I had a little bit of a stomach ache which I just chalked up to drinking shitty beer, and the first beers I had drank in over a month. But when I got home the pain in my stomach just started growing.
There was this almost stabbing feeling growing in my stomach throughout the night. Getting to sleep was a big hassle. By morning, it was way worse. I won’t get into the exact details of the situation, but let’s just say I called in sick to work to keep the comforts of my bathroom close by.
Now I can’t help but think two things. One, I cannot believe my body has gotten accustomed to those poisons so much that one day of going nuts eating all of it would make me feel so horrible. Two, I need to find some new ways to enjoy a social life without being “that Paleo guy”. I’ll figure that out on my sick day off.
Oh by the way…what a pathetic Super Bowl! I’m so glad I spent all of my money on a camera the other day and couldn’t afford to bet on this game.
