Sometimes we need a slap in the face

Thursday, November 03, 2011

At least I do now and again. A woman in my office is having a health scare with a lump in her breast and it has thrown me for a loop. I truly believe in my heart we are what we eat and let me tell you as of late I am a pile of white flour and white sugar. I know that is why I collect weight around my middle. I know that is why I am exhausted and irritable. I know if I keep eating this way I could end up with my own health problems. Food is fuel. Would I pour whatever chemical I felt like it in my car and expect it to run?? Why do I do that to my body? The only body I get and I determine its future??? Addiction is scary but it is an excuse. I beat sugar once. I can do it again. Enough is enough.

    I'm sorry about your co worker :( I hope it's nothing serious. As far as you giving up sweets, that a toughy but I know you can do it. :)

    I guess lately I'm mostly chocolate then! (damn hormones)
I think I really need to find a way to detox from sugar. Its become more and more of a problem lately.
You can do it!

    Ah, man.. thats scary. :( On a separate note.. if we are what we eat then after last night I'm a coconut M&M and I'm pretty sure I'm shaped like one.

I agree: food is fuel. You will do it again! Best of luck :)

    Health scares are definitely a wake-up call. I had a breast cancer scare last year and I don't wish that on anyone. Treating our bodies well can definitely help cut down on those scares! Glad to hear that sugar addiction will no longer be an excuse for you!
