Do you dream of food?
Saturday, October 01, 2011
Had I been asked that question two days ago, my answer would have been no! I never have, and it sounds quite silly. I've been doing so well staying on track. Each day I get on the scale (I know, I know, "you should only weigh weekly") and I feel happy that I was successful the day before. Because I ate what was good for me, each day it has shown on the scale with a slight loss.
However; Last night I had a dream that I was having a HUGE chocolaty shake, and I thought nothing of it. It was the most awesome, delicious shake. As I slurped away the (I'm sure what would be) millions of calories the shake started to taste bitter, but it my blissful, sugar overdosed moment, I continued downing this mammoth shake. Suddenly when I got toward the bottom; my chocolaty goodness, turned to coffee, with coffee beans completely filling the bottom of the cup (I know most people like coffee, I'm not one of them). The bitter taste started to burn my mouth and ache throughout my body. I could not fix the problems the coffee had infused within my body and I started to shake (and then I woke up ...)
I woke up feeling nauseous, but as I sit and ponder, I've decided that my mind is wrapping around the idea that having sweet stuff isn't worth the stress it puts on my body. As I sit here enjoying my apples, it seems they are more sweet than the shake, and I know that my body is thanking me :)
Enjoy something today that your body will thank you for tomorrow!!
