On the 8th day of December my health gave to me....

A reality check.

I went out for dinner with my guy last night. It may or may not have included a little bit of chocolate cake for dessert and a couple of chips while watching a movie later on in the evening.

I'd be more apt to say it may have. Or did, really.


I had 8.5 hours of sleep last night and I feel like cr@p. Was it the carbs? The sugars? Both?

I feel all sluggish and gross. And it WAS what I ate. Not that the food was bad, it wasn't. Just too many carbs and sugars.

I'm back to my clean eating, low-cal (since I'm pretty inactive at the moment), low-carb eating. When I put more activity into my life again after the doc clears me I will add more calories in, and a little more carbs. But I choose to be sugar-free until Christmas. That slip cost me.

We sometimes make mistakes. Sometimes we make the same mistakes over and over. Or maybe that's just me. But we need to learn from them and grow. So.....hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Christmas I go.

Lets make healthy decisions today!

  Great blog and emoticon on getting back on track. Yes I know all about the after effects of eating the sugar/carb combo and trust me you aren't the only one repeating these things over and over. I am hoping to one day, not do it so much and then eventually not do it at all. emoticon Spark on!

    Hope you feel better soon! It's amazing how quickly our bodies adapt to changes in diet and also how bad we feel when we have something we've removed. Hugs!

    I sure can relate to this: I ALWAYS regret (after the fact) those high fat high salt high sugar indulgences, dang it: and seldom remember I'm going to regret 'em before I eat 'em!!

    Sugar does that to me too - no wonder they call it 'the white poison!!
