Temptation and self sabotage
Tuesday, March 19, 2013
No matter how long we've been on the journey of a healthy lifestyle it seems temptation lurks around every corner. For example I rarely eat granola but I bought some a few weeks ago.
Such a bad decision, who knew toasted granola was a trigger food for me,, so it all came to a head on Sunday night when I was stressed about my mother in law going to hospital with a suspected heart attack. So I attack the bag of granola and consume about 600 cals in a flash. Well that triggered me on and no willpower to avail off I ate a packet of biscuits, I mean a whole packet of biscuits. And other things were eaten in the frenzy. I mean hellooo!! By the end of the packet of biscuits I felt so sick, yeah to remind you I have diabetes,,,,come on girl. Whats that about.
well I paid for it yesterday, felt so ill all day and then went to bed at 8:30 pm last night.
The good news is I will not buy granola again and I will not buy custard creams either. I don't need them, there is plenty of treats I love that don't rob the calorie bank and don't trigger me into a frenzy of eating junk.
SO I moved on, yesterday I ate pretty well and today I've started off with a really healthy breakfast.
So heres to moving on , not dwelling on the mistakes and taking one day at a time.
Lets be real temptation is all around but we can win the battle.
