Doo-Doo-Doo DOO doo-DOO! CAAAARBS!

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 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.

    I think the sweets ARE hitting you hard! You don't realize it because you fill the need with the diet dr. p and then your body is like, ok, I had my (fake) sweet, now I need my salt! I keep trying to tell john that the diet coke he's addicted to is making him eat terribly. He's like "i dont even like sweets" but every night after dinner (with his diet coke) he wants some goldfish crackers and then after that some CHOCOLATE! the diet coke is making him feel unfulfilled, or something. Idk. did you ever beat your aspartame addiction? I can't remember. I still have a diet soda as a treat now and then, but I usually drink sparkling water. or iced tea.
oh man salt and vinegar chips are a weakness for me! I don't think I've had any since 2012! emoticon
