I was only hopeful I'd get insights on my Sweet Tooth that doesn't really need taming. But today, I had some!
First of all, I craved them, and when not sweets, craved SOMETHING today. I was sleepy. I went to bed too late last night, and then my Baby-Monster-Dog woke me up at 3:30am, so I was dragging. And I kept thinking chocolate would help. But I didn't eat chocolate. I went an got a fountain of Diet DP. And *voice dropping to a mumble* I may...actually have...perhaps...purchased...a bag of...chippies...as well.
And after that, I was a mess! So, sweets may not hit me hard, but chips, man, they are my gateway drug. Then one of the students brought in nammura today, so I had a very small piece. It's a Middle Eastern cakey-type dessert made with semolina and honey. It is AWESOME. But my piece was small, promise! But he also brought in pizza. And that is a food that isn't a gateway drug for me, but I really cannot stop with pizza. I ate two large slices.
In spite of this, I am within my calorie range, which I think is a miracle, but I was too full for dinner, so...
So the moral of the story is...get enough sleep. And back away from the chips. I think I have to cut myself off from chippies during the day for the rest of the week. I have to confess that I have an open bag of Utz salt and vinegar chips that my husband brought back from DC. But he came back two weeks ago, and I still have the same open bag, which I think is a real victory. SO, if I have calories left at the end of the day, I can eat a measured portion of that, I think.
